Volkswagen’s seven-seater crossover, the Atlas, has spawned a new variant, dubbed the Atlas Cross Sport. This new model is more upscale and sportier, offering seating for five, greater connectivity capabilities and unique performance details that set it apart from its larger seven passenger sibling.
From the outside, the Atlas Cross Sport features a dramatically angled rear hatch and lower roofline than the Atlas. Full LED headlights up front and the available 21-inch rims make quite the statement, day or night.
Step inside and you immediately notice the spaciousness of the Atlas Cross Sport. A large 4.5-ft. long panoramic sunroof brings the outside in, while dual-zone climate control does an excellent job of keeping you and your passenger at just the right temperature. The available Fender Premium Audio system impresses with its 480-watts and 12-speakers, delivering snappy bass notes and precise rendering across different vocal ranges. The two-tone leather seats available on the R-Line models are a fun addition too.
Meanwhile, when it comes to technology, the Atlas Cross Sport has you covered with an 8.0-inch capacitive touchscreen display and full Apple Carplay and Android Auto integration.
On the road, the Atlas Cross Sport is smooth and composed, its 3.6-liter, 276 horsepower V6 engine won’t win any drag races, but its plenty potent and can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Equipped with Volkswagen’s excellent 4Motion Active Control all-wheel drive system, and the Cross Sport becomes an ideal vehicle to take to the slopes, whether you’re mountain biking alone this summer or going on a solo cross-country ski trip this winter.
