Volkswagen Atlas unveiled

On October 27th, 2016, at an exclusive media event, we unveiled the all-new 3-row, 7-seat SUV, Volkswagen Atlas.

The Atlas held court at the base of Route 66, on the Santa Monica Pier where journalists and car enthusiasts got an up close view of the final production model.

It’s been a long time in the making but we’re pleased that the exterior design remains true to the original CrossBlue vision. The Atlas sits low and wide accommodating a larger than life interior that can haul your passengers and your cargo with ease.

In fact, its size has garnered some online commentary from automotive journalists who participated in the event. Driving.ca reports, “expect the Atlas to become a key player in the popular segment”. At the same time, The Globe and Mail, in reference to the vehicle’s available trim levels and multitude of options, claims “The VW Atlas promises to be a versatile and comfortable family hauler.”

Photos for illustration purposes only. Some items, such as wheels, may be unavailable on some trim levels when vehicle is built or may not be available in Canada. Fuel consumption ratings are estimates based on Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) fuel consumption criteria and testing methods for 2018 model year vehicles and are provided for comparison purposes only. Please note that comparisons to seemingly similar vehicles pre-2015 model year will show discrepancies due to the difference in NRCan approved calculation methods for 2014 model year and older vehicles. Please refer to NRCan’s Fuel Consumption Guide 2018 for estimated fuel consumption figures. Actual fuel consumption will vary based on driving conditions, driver habits and the vehicle’s condition, weight carried and additional equipment. Tires are supplied and warranted by their manufacturer. Most vehicles are sold equipped with four all-season tires. For vehicles sold equipped with summer performance tires, note that appropriate all-season or winter weather tires are required for driving during cold, snowy or icy weather conditions. Please remember that the use of winter tires may be mandatory in your province or territory. Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all accident scenarios. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear seats, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age. The navigation system depends upon signals from the GPS network and is designed to provide you with suggested routes only. Discrepancies may occur between the mapping and the actual location due to changes in street names, construction or other road system changes which are beyond the control of Volkswagen Canada. Please rely on your individual judgment in determining whether or not to follow a suggested navigation route.
