2019 Volkswagen Atlas Review
Whether you’re jetting off to work and sports practice during the week or enjoying a leisurely road trip to your favorite state park on the weekend, you need an SUV that makes room for fun.
Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler drivers in need of extra space, comfort, and power for their family can count on the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas to give them what they need. Just read this review from the Baierl Automotive team to see for yourself.
VW Atlas Towing Capacity
Hauling a boat or a camper is no easy task. In a lesser car, it might be impossible. However, in the brawny Volkswagen Atlas, towing is made easy. With the right equipment installed, this SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds of cargo, which is perfect for your next camping trip.
Exactly how does the VW Atlas manage that towing capacity? It’s in large part thanks to its powertrain. The available 3.6L V6 engine offered in this SUV generates an impressive 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, ensuring you can pull heavy loads uphill.
You shouldn’t have to worry about that trailer throwing your vehicle off balance, especially when available 4MOTION® with Active Control is equipped. This feature grants your car four different all-wheel drive modes: Dry, Rainy, Snowy, and Rough. Turn the dial as soon as the roads start to change, and your wheel-grip will adjust.
How Many Passengers Does the VW Atlas Sit?
If you have a growing family or big squad of adventurous friends, then two rows aren’t going to cut it. Fortunately, the 2019 VW Atlas offers three rows of seating and seats seven passengers.
Standard second-row seating is roomy in its own right, having been designed to accommodate up to three car seats. However, if you don’t have little ones in tow, you can upgrade to the available captain’s chairs, which offer a cozier option for adults.
The third row was made with easy access in mind. You can push the second-row seats forward without buttons or levers. Pull and push down so getting in and out is easy for passengers of all sizes.
Say Hello to Your Digital Copilot
Having a copilot along for the ride is a great feeling. However, if they doze off, you can still count on the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit to have your back.
This smart tech feature replaces the traditional instrument cluster behind your steering wheel with a fully digitized and customizable version. As a matter of fact, The VW Atlas can store four driver profiles, so your partner or teenage driver can save their preferences, too.
As part of this digitized cluster, you’ll have an available wide map navigation view that makes maps bigger and directions easier to see. Since it’s just behind the wheel, your eyes never have to veer far from the road!
