Volkswagen unveils its new SUV specifically for their US line-up called the Atlas. It is the boldest and biggest Volkswagen that has ever been built in the US, according to Hinrich Woebcken, VW North America Region CEO. The Volkswagon Altas SUV is 198 inches long with 2 powertrains that are available. One has a 238 hp 2L turbocharged 4 cylinders Standard front wheel drive while the other one, an all-wheel drive that has 280 hp 3.6L V6.
The Volkswagen Atlas Suv has 3-rows of seats and can fit 7 people. It is expected to be the savior for the struggling business of VW in the US because they cannot seem to sell cars in the country. Over the last year, the company has been struggling with sales in the US auto market. However, with the release of the Atlas, the company believes that their shortcomings in offering competitive SUV line-ups will be the key to boost its sales.
With the all new Volkswagen Atlas Suv, consumers are in for an amazing surprise as it brings out new features. It provides big cargo space for the whole family with a 3rd row space that can easily be accessed. It has an advanced digital technology where people can see important information such as the speed, fuel consumption, navigation display and even has a driver assistance setting.
The Driver Assistance comes with 9 exciting features which are very useful on every trip. It has a pedestrian monitoring system, blind spot monitor and front assist, just to name a few.
With the coming release this year, Atlas pricing will range from $30,000 for the 4-cylinder base model and will extend to about $48,000 for the top-tier SEL premium models. It is expected that with the release of the new Volkswagen Atlas, its prices will be competitive enough to hit the market and make a dent with its other competitors.
