Introducing the new 2021 VW Atlas SUV

Are you looking to truly make the world your oyster? When you hit the road, is it important that you feel like you can handle whatever civilization, or lack there-of, throws at you? If so, the newly redesigned 2021 VW Atlas SUV is waiting for you to step behind the wheel and experience an unparalleled level of control and sophistication, allowing you to be the master of the road!

You may think you know the Volkswagen Atlas (like the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas), but let us be the first to tell you that what was true in previous years has been turned on its head in the 2021 itineration of the Atlas SUV. Read on below to learn more about the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas and the new improvements and add innovations that make it one of the best crossover SUVs

When is the 2021 VW Atlas Release Date?

First and foremost, you might be wondering when this new vehicle will be hitting a Volkswagen dealership near you so that you can hop in the driver seat for a test drive? Well, if you're reading this, we are happy to let you know that the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas release date occurred Spring 2020. This means that many dealerships are likely to already have the vehicle in their new inventory stock!

What's New in the 2021 Model?

As you may or may not know, the Volkswagen Atlas has been around for a few years now, but don't let that mistake you into believing that it's anywhere near "outdated". In fact, the new Volkswagen Atlas is coming off the heels of the Cars.com's Best Family Car Award-winning 2020 Volkswagen Atlas, and it's a strong contender to keep that title in 2021. On the contrary, Volkswagen SUV designers have upped the ante with the new Atlas SUV and have made major exterior modifications that make the vehicle look almost like a cousin to its predecessors (albeit, more handsome).

VW designers relished the opportunity to take the traditional, rugged look of the Atlas and revamp it into a more pleasing and visually appealing visage. Major updates to the exterior include an enhanced grille that proudly displays Volkswagen's newly designed logo and headlights that sit more naturally in their housing, providing a more elegant appearance. 

If you decide to go with the upgraded SEL R-line variant of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas, you'll gain additional external additions that make the SUV look downright striking. Air intakes (bearing the stylized "R" badge separating these trims from the others) are symmetrically placed on both sides of the intentionally lowered grill. Bringing up the rear of the vehicle is a glossy diffuser that gives those behind you quite the show. Be sure to check out the new 2020 Atlas Cross Sport to see a newly-redesigned rear of the Atlas.

What does the 2021 Atlas Interior Look Like?

Moving from the outside-in, drivers and passengers of the 2021 VW Atlas will be both be pleased with what's been carried over from previous versions of the SUV and the newest additions meant to enhance everyone's ride. The driver will enjoy a redesigned steering wheel that gives a better feel and allows for more control while the updated digital cockpit provides a new level of vehicle information customization. Even better, a wireless phone charger and a remote start function takes you into the future by removing wires and lets you get started on your journey faster!

Passengers will enjoy the spacious interior that can be experienced in both the 2nd and 3rd rows of the vehicle which is complemented by the high-quality paneling and accents. The Atlas is built for adventure, so our designers saw a lot of storage maximization and re-arranging in store for the 2021 variant, which is why both rows of seats can be easily folded and moved to accommodate.

2021 Volkswagen Atlas SUV Performance

What is a vehicle without its motor and wheels? Not much at all, which is one of the reasons why Volkswagen is so committed to performance for all its vehicles. The base S model of the 2021 VW Atlas comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that puts out about 235 horsepower. Many feel that this is more than enough "go power" to get you to your destination, but VW proudly offers more aggressive options in other trim levels. 

Perhaps you'd be interested in the V6 SEL with 4MOTION® trim of the 2021 Atlas that ups the strength of the engine to 276 horsepower, applied to all 4 wheels with the all-wheel drive capability? No matter your preference, there's a perfect trim level waiting for you in the newest itineration of the Atlas SUV.
