Overview

How Much Does a 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cost?

The base Atlas Cross Sport, the S ($TBA), comes with the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission, plus safety features like automatic emergency braking, a blind-spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert. Also standard on the S: LED headlights, power heated side mirrors, roof rails, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Next up, the Atlas Cross Sport SE ($TBA). In addition to a power driver’s seat and a power liftgate, the SE comes with heated front seats, an 8-inch touchscreen, five USB ports and VW’s latest MIB3 infotainment system. An SE w/Tech model ($TBA) brings 20-in alloy wheels to the equation, along with adaptive cruise control and parking distance control. The SE w/Tech R-Line ($TBA) is a V6 model with 4Motion AWD, and it also has the R-Line visual treatment that includes sportier front and rear fascias, R-Line badging, and stainless-steel pedal covers. An Atlas Cross Sport SEL ($TBA), another V6 model with 4Motion, ups the content level with power front seats, a heated steering wheel, and VW’s Digital Cockpit, a large and highly configurable LED screen that replaces the traditional analog gauges. The SEL R-Line ($TBA) is pretty much the same vehicle with the R-Line visual treatment. As the top version of the Atlas Cross Sport, the SEL Premium R-Line ($TBA) is a 4Motion V6 model equipped with a leather interior, heated and cooled front seats, an overhead camera, 21-in alloy wheels, and the popular R-Line styling tweaks. Stand-alone options include a panoramic sunroof.

Volkswagen Atlas Safety

Is the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas a Safe Car?

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport has not been crash-tested by the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), but occupant safety is addressed in multiple ways. Every Atlas Cross Sport is equipped with Front Assist, an automatic emergency braking program that stops this midsize SUV as quickly as possible it if senses an impending impact with a stopped car or pedestrian. VW’s adaptive cruise control system also works in stop-and-go traffic. All of the new VW Atlas Cross Sports also are equipped with a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. We like both of these safety technologies. The former makes lane changes much safer by letting the driver know if there is a vehicle in the Cross Sport’s rear three-quarter blind spot. The latter makes backing out of tight parking spots at the supermarket much less of a harrowing ordeal.

Competition

2021 Volkswagen Atlas vs the competition

2020 Honda Passport— The Passport is another big and spacious 2-row SUV with five seats and a large cargo area. It’s blessed with Honda’s proven reliability and a raised ride height, which is good for travel on dirt roads. Like the VW, the Passport is a bit thirsty at the gasoline pump. 2020 Ford Edge — The Ford Edge has been around a long time, and it benefits from a wide cabin and pair of potent turbocharged engines. The Edge ST is a 335-horsepower powerhouse. 2020 Nissan Murano — Like the Atlas Cross Sport, the Murano places a big emphasis on style. Its V6 is a proven and potent performer, but its continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is not among our favorites. 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee — Another 2-row 5-seat SUV, but the Jeep Grand Cherokee has an edge where you’d expect – in the dirt. Engines range from a 295-hp V6 to a 707-hp supercharged V8 (in the almighty Trackhawk). Used Volkswagen Touareg — The vehicle the Atlas replaced. Made in Germany, and considered to be more of a premium vehicle than the Atlas. Look for a low-mileage 2017 Touareg on Autotrader.com.
