2020 Volkswagen Atlas in Elgin, IL
The Volkswagen Atlas only debuted as an all-new model for 2018, but it’s already hard to imagine a world without the sizeable transporter. That’s certainly not a world we’d like to live in, anyway. For 2020, just like 2019 before, VW has bestowed on its full-size SUV an assortment of alterations and additions. Those include the fact, as you may have heard, that VW is shortening their bumper-to-bumper warranty on the Atlas (along with all 2020 models) but adding in two years of free regularly-scheduled maintenance.
The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas comes in just three different trim levels, but when one takes into account the two engine options, possible addition of 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, and special R-Line variations, there are a total of fifteen different starting builds. Every build boasts three rows of seating and plenty of room within for humans, cargo, or both. This SUV is one of the few that manages to bring along minivan-level capabilities without conceding rugged style.

Performance and Handling
The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas comes with a standard 4-cylinder engine that produces 235 horsepower. An optional V-6 stands by to pump out 276 hp. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. All-wheel drive is available, but only offered with the V-6 engine.
Couple one of these powerplants to the strong brakes and obedient, controlled steering, and the result is ride that rolls along smoothly and refined. Navigating a 2020 Atlas is a pleasantly nimble, composed experience. The drive is further eased by a solid array of driver-assistance tech.
Interior Tech and Features
The interior of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas excels at being highly practical. The third-row actually manages to be roomy enough to accommodate adults, which can be a rare accomplishment even among full-size SUVs. This year, the Atlas comes standard with the latest VW tech suite, Car-Net 2.0. There are also an incredible number of cupholders. The end result is that your family will feel right at home within the confines of the 2020 VW Atlas.
