2018 Volkswagen Atlas Specifications
As we know, the Atlas model is a very important vehicle for the Volkswagen Company, and we can suspect redesigns in almost every segment. This model will also be the largest SUV model from Volkswagen, sold in the U.S. Its appearance will resemble a bit to the Volkswagen’s CrossBlue concept introduced at 2013 Detroit auto show. Let’s start our review with the exterior design of this robust model.
Exterior design reviews
The exterior design of the anticipated 2018 Volkswagen Atlas model will be very attractive, and this model will be similar to the Volkswagen’s CrossBlue concept. How large this model is we can see in the fact that its length is 198.3 inches while its width is 77.9 inches. This measurement will make this model the largest SUV model in the VW lineup. For example, this model will be 10 inches longer and 1.5 inches wider than the Touareg model.
We can notice a lot of common things and features with the already mentioned CrossBlue concept, but also some similar parts with the Touareg model. So, we can conclude that the Atlas model is a perfect combination of CrossBlue concept and Touareg model.
We can begin from the front fascia of this beautiful SUV. Here we can notice elegantly designed grille connected with well-shaped headlights. The grille will contain a lot of chrome materials while the lights will use the LED technology.
At the center of the grille, we can recognize VW logo. The general shape of this model is boxy, but it is more stylish than before. At the front side, we can also notice very large front bumper fitted with the large air intakes as well as with the elegantly designed fog lights powered with LED system for better road vision in harsh weather condition.
We can expect the same platform as before, and that means that the whole chassis will be made using lightweight materials. That means that the fuel consumption of this model will be better. At the sides, the latest Atlas will ride on large aluminum wheels, but at this moment we don’t know the exact size.
Interior design Previews — 2018 VW Atlas
Just like the exterior design, also the exterior design is excellent. Thanks to the incredible length and long wheelbase, all passengers in the cabin will have quite enough space. If you have even five kids, that is not the problem in this model.
Everyone will enjoy in pleasant ride and a high dose of comfort. We mentioned kids, but this model will be capable of accommodating up to seven adults persons who are quite amazing. However, if you don’t want the last row of seats you can easily fold it, and you will have more space for your baggage.
Of course, everything in the cabin is on the premium level starting from mentioned seats. All seats will be wrapped in the high-quality leather, and all seats will have a high dose of adjustability. Besides leather, we can also expect the addition of some aluminum and wooden parts as well.
The dashboard will be very helpful but also very simply organized and it is quite easy to manage with it. At the middle of the dash, we can see large touchscreen display fitted with the updated infotainment system from VW.
