Untitled Document


We can't wait to see you soon at Tom Wood Volkswagen so that you can find the perfect new Volkswagen vehicle that doesn't just get you from point A to point B, but enhances your everyday life with its reliability, efficiency, and fun. New for 2018, the Volkswagen Atlas is here. Finally, an SUV built in America for the modern family. Packed with big ideas for all your big adventures, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is ready for work, play — whatever you throw its way. The Atlas is filled with lots of features that help you get to where you’re going. And it can keep passengers thoroughly entertained along the way. Let the good times roll.

With the all-new 7-passenger Atlas, we thought bigger than we ever thought before. So feel free to load it up. It’s already packed with some of our biggest ideas.

Life's as big as you make it.

Designed for America, Built in America

It’s no secret that the Volkswagen Passat sedan is manufactured at the Volkswagen Chattanooga assembly plant in Tennessee. The state-of-the-art facility was also the perfect fit to build the Atlas; the first finished models are expected to be available in the spring of 2017. The vehicles reflect a planned investment of an additional $900 million in the Chattanooga plant, which is part of the Volkswagen Group’s $7 billion commitment to the North American market.

In addition to building the Atlas in America, Volkswagen designers were committed to taking the pulse of those families and friends living in America. Mid-size was key: Sometimes it’s great to drive alone, but it’s also great to take kids, and kids’ friends. That led, very naturally, to a third row and space for seven. (And space for everyone’s water bottle and then some: There are 17 — yes 17 — cupholders). But building a third row is something entirely different from building a comfortable third row. VW designers stretched out the Atlas — 198.3 inches nose-to-tail, 77.9 inches wide, and 69.6 inches high — giving it the distinction of being the biggest Volkswagen currently offered in the United States. It also exhibits bold yet sophisticated lines, including the must-haves (that signature horizontal two-bar VW grill, to name one), and distinctive LED lighting. Another thing families will love: The available Panoramic Sunroof with sunshade. Combined together, all those features create a look that’s sleek and powerful.

How did Volkswagen designers approach the creation of the new Volkswagen Atlas? Watch this video to find out.

Purposeful and Practical

There are lots of products that claim to make life easier. But do they? That was a question that Volkswagen asked: How can the Atlas offer flexibility and comfort, with features that are just as easy for an owner to use as they are for a friend?

For starters, there’s that second- and third-row engineering. The second-row seats can slide backward and forward, and include a clever seat-folding mechanism for the second row to make it easier to step into the third row. With a forward-facing child-safety seat installed, the second row slides and tilts forward for entry into the third row. Both rows can fold flat (to find out how much space you can get, view “5 VW Atlas Features Families Will Love”), or you can quickly execute either a 50/50-split third row and 60/40-split second row for even more storage options.


3 Rows of Seats

Leave no man, woman, or child behind with seating for seven. The third row in the Atlas is roomy enough for family, teammates, and friends.

Cargo space

Families have things. Lots of things. The Atlas was designed to handle them with up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the second- and third-row seats folded down, which can be configured specifically to help haul your belongings.

Easy third-row access

The second row of the Atlas has a lever that folds and slides the seats forward for easy access to the third row. This allows you to leave an empty child safety seat in place while everyone else piles into the third row.

Volkswagen Digital Cockpit

This will go over big with everyone. The available 12.3" Active Information Display lets you see important information—your speed, estimated fuel consumption, Driver Assistance settings, and even a navigation display. Heads up, technology advancing.

8" touchscreen display

Families are always on the move. An available 8-inch infotainment screen makes it even easier to see where you’re going. And it provides easy answers for every kid who asks, “Are we there yet?”

Selectable Driving Modes

It’s like getting four SUVs in one. With available Driving Mode Selection, you can choose from four different driving modes—Eco, Normal, Sport, and Custom—that can change the way the Atlas drives. Happy trails, highways, and byways ahead.

Pedestrian Monitoring

This available feature can help prevent accidents involving pedestrians. A radar sensor works to help detect if a pedestrian is headed into your path, and if the driver doesn’t respond to an audible warning, the car’s brakes are automatically applied with full braking force.

Driver Assistance features are not substitutes for attentive driving. See Owner's Manual for further details and important limitations.

Front Assist

This available feature has front sensors to help monitor traffic and can alert you to a possible collision with the vehicle ahead. If a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can help brake the car.

Driver Assistance features are not substitutes for attentive driving. See Owner's Manual for further details and important limitations.

Blind Spot Monitor

The sensors on the available Blind Spot Monitor feature are able to sense what you might miss. When driving, if you attempt to change lanes, the Blind Spot Monitor can help alert you to other cars that may be in your blind spot.
