2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport V6 SUV Climbs To New Heights
For those of us who have had Volkswagens buzzing through the truly long strange trip it’s been … the newest VW generation is extremely satisfying.
The 2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport mid-sized SUV looks straight edge utilitarian modern profile … while reveling in the sensuous accent strokes availed by laser sheet metal sculpting tech.
Under the hood VW Atlas Cross Sport, base priced around $30,000, features a popular 235 horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-diesel 4 cylinder. Moving up to the SEL trim with a 276 horsepower 3.6 liter AWD V6, the VW Atlas rolls out of showrooms from $42,000 – $48,000.
The V6 is highly recommended because it delivers crisper acceleration response without the 4 cylinder turbo lag.
Inside heated and cooled front leather seating, 2-zone climate control, the Digital Cockpit 8-inch touchscreen, and a12-speaker Fender audio system, make the expansive passenger cabin a happy place for commuting and long hauls. Speaking of which, the Atlas offers SUV impressive 5,000 lb. towing rating.
Safety is a VW priority with forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, intelligent high beams, and an overhead-view camera.
