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

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.

Pros
Distinctive styling inside and out
Strong V6 engine
High-quality materials in the cabin

Cons
Infotainment system is frustrating to use

Overly firm ride

By: 
edmunds.com

The high-performance SV Autobiography Dynamic edition joins the lineup for 2020, powered by a rip-snorting supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 making 550 horsepower. We've driven it already, and it's awesome. Elsewhere, Land Rover has made more minor updates, such as making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration across the Velar lineup and fitting the base S model with driver-assistance tech such as blind-spot monitoring, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, a power-adjustable steering column, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

Pros
Avant-garde styling, large cargo space, high-end interior design.

Cons
Finicky infotainment system, grumbly engines, eye-popping price tags.

By: 
caranddriver.com
