2019 VW Atlas is a continuation of the popular three-row truck that VW made to keep the step with high market demands to trucks for families. However, as this vehicle is made to be small and attractive, with modern features and interesting to families and younger buyers, there are no much similarities with other trucks on the market, even though with trucks VW has made. As the matter of fact, some buyers believe that Atlas is made as an answer to low selling of Touareg, rough and too expensive massive vehicle that was a little disappointed.


The shape and design of 2019 VW Atlas are not much changed from the last model, meaning that it still has simple lines and angles, with interesting and modern decoration. The rounded front end has a wide gridded grille with well incorporated LED headlights at the ends of the front bumper. Below them is triangle fog lights rounded with chrome and metallic protection on the bottom. The rear end is the same simple designed with an elegant chromatic line over the truck door and modernly designed rear lights. Below them are two exhausts and also metallic protection.


The interior of 2019 Volkswagen Atlas is as simple but impressive as on the last model, so there are no many details, thus the cabin is luxurious and attractive. There is leathered upholstery in base trim, together with Digital Cockpit and more. The base model also gets a 6.5-inch touchscreen, dual-zone climate control, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, all in the simple designed cabin as on the last model. Wide and roomy cabin exudes simplicity and modernity.


The base model of 2019 Volkswagen Atlas gets the same engine as an older model, and that is 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. There will also be optional 3.6-liter V6 petrol unit with 276 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission, again, as on the last model. Together with the front-wheel driving system, there is an optional all-wheel driving system, too. This engine got the highest marks in the crash and test driving.

With this price and all features, it could be the main competitor to Dodge Durango, Toyota Highlander, and Honda Pilot.
