2018 Volkswagen Atlas Tampa FL
Bigger isn’t always better, but it’s a real necessity for today’s modern family. That’s why the new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has headed to Tampa FL her at Brandon Volkswagen. This all-new model is a breath of fresh air for those who long ago fell in love with the quality built and refined interiors that VW has to offer, but can’t quite work the smaller SUVs or station wagons into their lives anymore. The Atlas has been a long time coming for many shoppers, and it’s finally here with a host of fantastic features.
Easily the biggest model in the Volkswagen lineup, the 2018 VW Atlas is a three-row, seven seat SUV that offers a robust design for a surprisingly rugged appearance from Volkswagen. Don’t be fooled by its tough exterior, as the Atlas still offers the elegance you expect once you climb into the model. Best of all, it’s a vehicle that will grow with your family as the third row isn’t a cramped after thought. Rather, grown adults will be pleasantly amazed that they can fit comfortably and even stretch a bit.
Why have just one engine option when you can offer two? The Volkswagen Atlas starts off with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that offers up 235 horsepower, but for those who are looking for even more power, the 3.6-liter VR6 will be offered, which has a 276-horsepower output for maximum capability.
If there’s one type of model that absolutely cannot slip and slide, it’s the full-size SUV. You have fragile cargo, and plenty of people filling those seats. That’s why the Volkswagen Atlas has available 4Motion AWD on VR6 trim levels. This system will give you great traction wherever your adventures lead.
VW Digital Cockpit
If you haven’t heard, Volkswagen is offering an all-new Digital Cockpit, and it will first make an appearance as an option in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. This new feature is an all-digital gauge cluster that is customizable for navigation, driver assistance features, fuel consumption and more.
2018 Volkswagen Atlas is bigger and better for families
As the largest model in the lineup, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has obvious benefits for those with children, but it’s not just the space that makes it a smart choice. The third-row seating is designed to be used, which means you don’t have to be clever in order to actually navigate into the rear. The second-row seats easily fold and slide forward in one motion, and both the second and third row fold flat to make maximum use of your cargo area. That means you can max out at a total of 96.8 cubic feet behind the first row, for those times when you need to lug home lawn equipment, furniture or a new big-screen TV.
Smart interior solutions help make life easy and allow the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas to remain comfortable, but what about safety? It isn’t always easy to see out the rear of a full-size SUV, which is why plenty of driver assistance systems are offered as options. You can expect all of the following available equipment to be offered in select trims:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking
- Blind Spot Monitor
- Rear Traffic Alert
- Lane Departure Warning
- Parking Steering Assistance
- Post-Collision Braking System
