All the “must haves” when it comes to a large family-centric vehicle are covered here. Third row of seating? Check. Huge cargo capacity? Check. Tons of standard features? Double check. While many automakers throw in a third row of seating just to say it’s available, you can actually comfortably sit in the 2018 Atlas third row. In fact, the third row is so spacious that it ranks among the roomiest of any vehicle in its class. That means each and every passenger inside the 2018 Atlas can relax and stretch out on road trips outside the Santa Barbara, Oxnard and Thousand Oaks area. What about features and equipment on the 2018 Atlas? Good question.

What’s new on the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas?
Although the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas was only introduced in 2018, it still has plenty to offer drivers. A few new features are added such as tri-zone automatic climate control, LED tailights, media control, a digital cockpit, and more. The same seven trim levels are offered: S, SE, SE with Technology, SE with Technology R-Line, SEL, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium.
Standard features now provided with the 2019 Atlas include several safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, rear traffic alert, and front assist. Drivers will also appreciate the fact that you can choose between two engine options: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder paired with front-wheel drive or a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 276 hp and is available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Atlas still manages to combine all the things people love – style, comfort, and luxury. The inside of the cabin is filled with plenty of technology features to keep occupants engaged and connected on the road, as well as comfort features that will keep you satisfied during those long journeys.
What is the History of the Volkswagen Atlas?
Volkswagen debuted a concept vehicle dubbed the CrossBlue in 2013 that would end up being the basis for the Volkswagen Atlas. The actual Atlas was launched into the North American market in 2017 as 2018 model. The original CrossBlue concept was a much smaller vehicle than what the full-size, family friendly Atlas would eventually become. VW engineers did their research and found that while many sport utility vehicles and crossovers offered third row seating, in most cases the third row tended be cramped and far less comfortable than other seating rows. Seeing this a key differentiator, Volkswagen designed the third row of seating in the Atlas to be as spacious as the other seats inside the vehicle.
The Atlas received a tremendous amount of positive press upon its introduction into the market. The American motoring public loved the roomy and well-equipped interior offered across all trim levels of the Atlas.
