Volkswagen offers 11 trim configurations throughout the Atlas range, so it’s likely that there is one to fit your idea of a perfect family hauler - and there are multiple configurations available for you to build your ideal SUV. The choice between FWD and AWD is available for most trim levels and there are two engines to choose from; the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or 3.6-liter V6 motor - both of which are paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The range starts off with the Atlas S that comes with a formidable list of standard features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a start-stop system, dual-zone climate control, and six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat. The SE sees some convenient additions that comprise push-button start, leatherette upholstery and heated front seats. SE with Technology models receive adaptive cruise control and a remote start system and moving up to the SEL range will welcome additions including a virtual cockpit, hands-free liftgate, and a panoramic sunroof. R-Line derivatives get R-Line front and rear bumpers, a range of blacked-out exterior detailing, and model-specific interior and exterior trim.
The Atlas does not offer an extensive range of additional packages, with Volkswagen instead choosing to split the available equipment across a broad range of trims.
A towing package is available at a cost of $550 for the S, SE, and SE with Technology models, provided the engine chosen is the V6. Second-row captain's chairs are available from the SE with Technology models upwards for an additional $695 and a panoramic sunroof can be added to the SE with Technology and SE with Technology R-Line models for the price of $1,200.
An extra $995 will get you 20-inch black wheels on the SEL and SEL Premium models and optional AWD is available on all but the SEL Premium as it comes standard equipped with 4MOTION.
