Meet the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

May 26th, 2017 by


Most Salem, Haverhill, and Lowell drivers will not be surprised to hear that Volkswagen, a company known for manufacturing a range of legendary vehicles, is ready to do it again. With the 2018 VW Atlas, this venerable auto company expands their crossover lineup with a seven-passenger vehicle outfitted with some of the best in features: high-powered performance, lightning-fast technologies, reliable safety devices, and impressive interior design. The best view of an Atlas comes from the inside, behind the wheel, but we have a quick overview for you now that it's available at Commonwealth Volkswagen in Lawrence.

Features in the New Atlas

Here’s just a quick run-down of what to expect if you drive home a new Atlas from our showroom:

  • Engine Power – The Atlas offers two engine options, the late-availability 2.0L turbo with 235 hp and 258 lb-ft and a 3.6L V6 with 276 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the Atlas can tow as much as 5,000 pounds.
  • Interior Space – With seven seats, the Atlas promises plenty of room, and it makes accessing its back seats simple, with a middle row that can slide and tilt forward when you need to load up passengers or cargo.
  • Safety – A range of available new safety systems—like Pedestrian Monitoring, Park Pilot, and Front Assist—keeps you in control and your riders safe and sound.
  • Technology – Among the technologies that make this an ideal family car are a Handsfree Easy Open Power Liftgate, which lets you swipe a foot under the back to open its liftgate when you’re loading groceries, and a Remote Power Liftgate, which doesn’t even require you near the car to open up the hatch.
