Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A heated steering wheel is now standard. And if you opt for the Executive package on the Premium Plus trim, additional leather trim is now included.We would choose the more expensive Prestige trim so that we can get the SQ7’s $5900 S Sport package, which adds desirable performance enhancements such as a sport rear differential and Audi’s Active Roll Stabilization system. This brings the SQ7’s price close to six figures, but the extras are well worth the money.

Pros
Impressively quick acceleration,
athletic chassis,
high-end cabin with room for seven.

Cons
Isn't particularly fuel efficient,
options quickly escalate to a six-figure price tag,
all-digital dash layout may irk some drivers.

VW refreshes the 2021 Atlas by adding updated front and rear ends that increase its overall length by almost three inches. Its face is graced by a more attractive three-bar grille and revised headlights, which now feature standard LED elements that continue out back. Models with the R-Line option also get new looks courtesy of its special badging, body kit, and 20- or 21-inch rims. Inside, there's a new steering wheel, updated stitching on the seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen on most models, and the latest iteration of the company's Car-Net smartphone app. The four-cylinder Atlas is now available with all-wheel drive for the first time.

Pros
No shortage of cargo or passenger space, reassuring driving manners, hard-to-beat value.

Cons
Uninspired interior aesthetic, less fuel efficient than advertised, rides rough on broken surfaces.
