After a long series of teasers, Volkswagen finally unveiled the all new Atlas SUV. The biggest Volkswagen ever created in the US is now ready to fill up de gap between the Tiguan and Touareg.

Building on the modular transverse matrix (MQB) from Volkswagen, the Atlas is born with the latest Volkswagen design DNA. Up front, standard LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights combine for the visual signature, with optional LED taillights to complete the look. With a length of 5,037 mm, a width of 1,979 mm and a height of 1,768 mm the Atlas is larger than any other Volkswagen on sale in the USA.

Inside,the Atlas makes maximum use of its dimensions to offer space for seven adults and their luggage. The third row can be easily reached by a folding seat solution. In addition, the optional Active Info Display (called the "Volkswagen Digital Cockpit" in the USA) allows drivers extensive options for configuring the display.

Volkswagen Car-Net offers a wide range of online services, including standard App-Connect technology that offers integration with the three major smartphone platforms: Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. The new Atlas model also features a Fender Premium AudioSystem offering a sound experience with twelve speakers and a 480 Watt amplifier.

The Atlas offers a selection of premium SUV driver assistance features. Depending on the equipment line, these include: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist), Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), and Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist).

The Atlas is also the only vehicle in its class to offer the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. This automatically initiates a deceleration of the vehicle when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus helping reduce residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage.

The new Volkswagen Atlas arrives with a choice of two powertrains: a 2.0- liter four-cylinder TSI with gasoline direct injection and turbo charging with 238 PS and the already available 3.6-liter VR6 engine with 280 PS. Both engines route power through an eight-speed transmission.

The Atlas can be configured either as front-wheel-drive or with 4Motion all- wheel-drive in combination with the VR6 engine.The 4Motion system has a Driving Mode Selection feature that allows the driver to select specific parameters based on driving conditions. 

The Atlas will be built alongside the Passat for North America at the Volkswagen Chattanooga assembly plant (Tennessee)
