Here at Volkswagen World of Newton, we are always trying to help drivers in Newton, Hackettstown, and Sparta find the perfect vehicle for their family. Whether it's your turn to carpool to practice or you just need something ready for summer vacations, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is just the type of SUV your family needs.

See how this SUV provides a spacious ride for you and your family. Learn about its performance and some of the innovative technology it features in our 2021 Volkswagen Atlas review below.

A Comfortable Ride for the Entire Family

The 2021 VW Atlas comes with seating for seven and provides plenty of room for each row.

Front Row: 41.3 inches of headroom and 41.7 inches of legroom

Second Row: 40.4 inches of headroom and 37.6 inches of legroom

Third Row: 38.3 inches of headroom and 33.7 inches of legroom

Overall, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas has 153.7 cubic feet of passenger volume and an additional 20.6 cubic feet of cargo volume inside its cabin. You can even maximize cargo space by folding down the rear seats. This will give you up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo volume to pack up a variety of items.

Along with that space, amenities like the available Climatronic® 3-zone automatic climate control system allow you and your passengers to each adjust the temperature in your specific area as hot or cold as you would like it.

Smart Safety Technology

With the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas, you will feel even more confident behind the wheel of your new SUV, thanks to all the various driver-assistive features you can get. The Blind Spot Monitor can alert you of any cars in your surrounding area that you may not be able to see. This way, you can know when it is safe to change lanes.

Other available safety features include the Overhead View Camera and Dynamic Road Sign Display. The available Overhead View Camera gives you a top-down look of your VW Atlas, which can help make it easier for you to safely get in and out of parking spots.

If you happen to miss a speed limit sign or any other traffic signs, the available Dynamic Road Sign Display can help keep you alert of the rules of the road.

A Smooth & Controlled Ride

You'll also have a fun, spirited driving experience when behind the wheel of the Volkswagen Atlas. That is thanks to the power under the hood provided by its two engine options. Standard is a 235-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Even more power is supplied by the available 3.6L V6 engine.

With this engine, the 2021 VW Atlas produces 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. That is enough strength to give this SUV the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds. 

The smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission paired with its engines features both Sport mode and Tiptronic®. This will let you take control of the shifting for a more connected driving experience.

The available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive also makes sure you enjoy stable and controlled driving, no matter the road conditions. Just switch from the Snow, On-Road, Off-Road, and Off-Road Custom mode, depending on your current driving situation.
