2024 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

Starting at $36,985 MSRP* | Up to 20 city / 27 highway / 23 combined MPG** | Seating – 5 Passengers

The Atlas Cross Sport combines many of the advantages of the Atlas with a stylish coupe-like sloping roofline. In Cross Sport form, the Atlas doesn’t have a third row of seats, but it does have quite a lot of cargo space that doesn’t require you to fold any seats down in order to utilize it. The turbocharged engine provides a lot of power, and you have the option of sending that power to all four wheels, via the 4Motion AWD system. The Atlas Cross Sport also has a ride height 2.3 inches lower than the standard Atlas, and multiple R-Line trims give you further style options. Heated and ventilated front seats are standard, which makes the already incredibly roomy interior even more comfortable.

  • 12" center display

2024 Volkswagen Atlas

Starting at $37,995 MSRP* | Up to 24 city / 31 highway / 27 combined MPG** | Seating – 7 Passengers

If you don’t need the seating, folding down the seats can give you a cavernous 96.6 cubic feet of cargo space, making the Atlas one of the roomiest SUVs in its segment. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides an excellent balance of power and efficiency, even for a vehicle as large as the Atlas. The Peak Edition even offers up some offroad ability, along with a healthy dose of extra style. And the available Harman Kardon premium sound system will make whatever music you like to listen to sound amazing.

  • Standard 2.0-liter TSI Turbo 4-Cylinder Engine with 269 horsepower
  • 60/40 split folding 2nd row, 3rd-row easy entry, and 50/50-split folding 3rd row
