We visited McDonald Volkswagen in Littleton Colorado to take a look at the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas to see if it makes the cut for our Colorado lifestyle.
David Williams gave us an in depth look at this new 7 passenger SUV by Volkswagen. This SUV was build for the US market and it is the first Volkswagen constructed in the United States. #merica
It’s not the fastest or the most fuel-efficient mid-size crossover, but this biggest Volkswagen earns its stars by offering practicality that’s tough to beat, along with a lithe chassis, plush ride comfort, and comfortable seats for up to seven. Technology also takes center stage: the Atlas can be had with the latest active safety features, infotainment displays with crisp graphics, and even a trendy reconfigurable digital gauge cluster. A lengthy, transferable warranty and pricing that undercuts many of the segment’s most popular choices are all additional feathers in the Atlas’s quiver.
We reviewed the SEL version of this vehicle and it has a ton of amazing features.
