Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 VW Atlas is a competent family hauler that assimilates into the daily routine without fuss.

Pros
Plenty of space
Good warranty
Good tech
Relative value among competitors
Solid powertrains

Cons
A little boring
Base touchscreen is on the small side
Not fuel-efficient
Cross Sport gets lost

By:

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.
