The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas ranked #8 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Volkswagen Atlas has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Three rows of spacious seats
Lots of cargo space
Intuitive infotainment system
Drives like a smaller vehicle

Cons
Sluggish acceleration
Some cheap cabin materials

By:

Volkswagen has made few changes to the Atlas for its sophomore year and mostly it's just a shuffling of standard equipment. Automated emergency braking, forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, and heated exterior mirrors are all now standard across the lineup. The mid-range SE model receives three-zone automatic climate control as standard this year and the top-spec SEL trim now comes standard with a digital gauge display, LED taillights, navigation, and a heated steering wheel.

Pros
Expansive cabin,
lively handling and velvety ride,
cutting-edge infotainment.

Cons
Unimpressive acceleration and fuel economy,
functional but uninspired interior.
