VW Atlas Cross Sport tailors two-row SUV for American tastes

  • 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

VW spent $340 million to add the smaller CUV and says it was the fastest vehicle the North American arm has ever done. A five-seat version of the full-sized Atlas, it's shorter and lower than its three-row brethren, but combines that more easily-parked scale with no reduction in wheelbase.

VW will do the same thing in the compact SUV space with plans to slot another crossover below the Tiguan.

"Building off the success of the Atlas seven-seater midsize SUV, we see an opportunity for a five-seater model that offers even more style and nearly as much interior space", said Scott Keogh, CEO, Volkswagen Group of America.

The upshot there is that, despite being nearly three inches shorter and 2.3-inches lower, there's still a healthy amount of cabin space for passengers and cargo. With the second row of seats up, you'll seat five and have 40.3 cubic feet of trunk space; ditch the rear passengers and fold the seats down, and that expands to 77.8 cubic feet.

Externally, the Atlas Cross Sport has distinctive styling that builds on the basics of the Atlas but takes it to a new level.

The Cross Sport's profile is racier than the Atlas, with a steeply raked rear pillar and rear hatch. The chrome accents on the lower body sides, rear bumper and windows also help with that.

Inside, the Cross Sport receives upgrades over the existing Atlas.

The interior was also upgraded with a new steering wheel, optional wireless charging, heated rear seats and steering wheel, ventilated front seats and a Fender audio system. Atlas Cross Sport SEL trim and above can be had with the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit. There's seating for five and the 40.4 inches of rear legroom should provide plenty of space to comfortably sit three adults in the second row. Car-Net includes an updated mobile app and increased connectivity for starting and locking the auto remotely, locating where it's parked, checking the fuel level, and sending destinations to the navigation system. If there's navigation fitted, the app allows the infotainment system to be remotely programmed with destinations. The feature also includes a hotspot feature that allows up to four connected devices simultaneously.

The Atlas Cross Sport is available with a suite of advanced driver-assistance features.

Every Atlas Cross Sport will come standard with important safety technology such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Higher trims add adaptive cruise control and some parking assistance.

TJA uses the front camera and radar to help maintain a safe following distance from the vehicle in front during high traffic situations. It can operate from 0 - 37 miles per hour, and can bring the vehicle to a full stop when traffic conditions demand. If longer, a tap of the gas pedal or the "Resume" button on the steering wheel will get the vehicle going again if adaptive cruise and lane keep are active. Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist) must be active for the system to operate.

Like the full-size Atlas, the Atlas Cross Sport will be powered by either a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 with 235 horsepower or a 3.6-liter V-6 with 276 horsepower sent to the front or all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Volkswagen said the V-6 can tow up to 5,000 pounds when equipped with the tow package.

The all-new SUV will launch in the Spring of 2020 and be available in eight trim levels: S, SE, SE with Tech, SE with Tech R-Line, SEL, SEL R-Line, SEL Premium, and SEL Premium R-Line.
