Evaluating the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Model Series

by Clare Louise

2020 Volkswagen Atlas adds a few more feathers to the segment of three-row crossover SUVs as it could offer more features in the light of making the vehicle more oriented towards family comfort. It is now being counted as one of the best choices of large family vehicles that are not many in number.

The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas brings with it a spacious cabin to accommodate all the family members with ease and keep them engaged as well as relaxed in its well-appointed room that doesn’t allow a single external noise to mess with the inner peace, proudly announced the sales staff of the Seaside Volkswagen dealership showroom.

2020 Edition Specials

The 2020 year edition once again arranges the Volkswagen Atlas models in the same S, SE, SEL and Premium trims  that distinguish themselves in respect of their power choices and configurations. The lineup thus again divides itself in categories of V6, AWD, w/ Technology, w/ R-Line features.

Power Options

All the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas models run either with the power of a turbo-4 engine or a V-6 counterpart. At the basement itself, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas issues a 235-hp derived from the turbo-4 engine and drives with front-wheels.

The other option you get is 6 liter V6 engine that can pump up the horsepower to 276 with all four wheels sharing the work.

Features for Safety and Convenience

For the 2020 year version VW enhanced the appeal of its Atlas series models with a new infotainment software to offer its buyers the advantage of smartphone compatibility. So now all the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas models come integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

This infotainment system now works in Accord with a heavy bunch of standard safety equipment that includes a forward collision warning that works in tune with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning, a full set of airbags, and all this functionalities are supported by a rearview camera. To avail features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, or automatic parking feature, you have to add a few more bucks to the base price of the trim you choose.

Outstanding Utility Score

At the showroom of a famous VW dealer near Seaside  the sales staff were more than happy to show their customers, how useful is the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas and that it is the utility score that of this crossover SUV that can surpass others in this segment.

After  making place for seven adult passengers, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas leaves about  20.6 cubic feet of space behind the third row to load the luggage and cargo, which can be further stretched into 55.5 cubic feet by folding down the third row.  You can get even more cargo space, measuring 96.8 cubic feet if you can tumble down the second row of seats, when you need to transport or carry even bigger loads.

Our Take

To help you out in choosing the best Atlas trim for yourself with a moderate budget, we would suggest the trim SE that will not only drive smoothly with a  V-6 engine but also be more comfortable with better quality of materials and in terms of feature convenience.
