If you are in the market for a new Volkswagen that can handle all of your daily driving needs, haul your trailer for the weekend, and safely transport you and your family, then you should check out the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas. At our Jim Sampson Volkswagen dealership in Sydney, Nova Scotia, our customers can find a very large selection of Volkswagen vehicles that can suit their driving style and their budget.
The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is a midsize crossover SUV with a lot to offer. As one would expect, there is a lot of space for cargo and passengers in the Atlas. There is actually a lot more room inside of this vehicle than the overall size would have you believe possible. In this article, we share some information about a few features of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas.
A very roomy interior
The latest Volkswagen Atlas offers three full rows of seats. That’s unusual for a mid-sized crossover vehicle. In this configuration, it can comfortably seat up to seven people. There is also a two-row version for owners who need more room for cargo than passengers. This version of the Atlas can accommodate up to five people. The interior feels massive with plenty of head, leg, and elbow room at every row.
Great performance out of each engine option
Volkswagen gives you the choice of two different engines for the 2021 Atlas. There’s a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder, but the real star of the show is the 3.6-litre V6. This engine produces 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. That’s plenty enough power and torque so that you’ll never feel bogged down, even with a carload of passengers or cargo.
Capable of towing
The horsepower and torque of the larger engine do more than just provide good acceleration. It also gives the Volkswagen Atlas surprisingly good towing capabilities. This powerful SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds. That’s plenty enough weight to pull along a small trailer or boat for your next trip.
The Volkswagen Atlas can handle all terrains
The Volkswagen Atlas offers all-wheel drive (AWD) which plays a big part in the excellent handling of the vehicle. This makes the Atlas a safer vehicle on wet or slick pavement too. It even gives this crossover SUV respectable off-road capabilities. Volkswagen’s 4Motion AWD gives drivers four different modes which can be selected with the turn of a dial. The modes are Snow, On-Road, Off-Road, and Off-Road Custom. This allows the driver to fine-tune the AWD performance to match their current situation.
