In Greek mythology, Atlas was the well-known titan charged with holding up the sky for eternity. The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, by contrast, is charged with holding up your world and seeing that you and your family get everywhere you need to go.

2019 VW Atlas: A Cabin of Global Proportions

The 2019 VW Atlas is an incredibly spacious SUV. With three rows of seats and room for seven passengers, this vehicle can easily accommodate your whole family. Plus, with legroom in the second and third rows measuring 37.6 inches and 33.7 inches, respectively, each row can fit adults.

You'll have plenty of space for cargo, too. The 20.6 cubic feet behind the third-row seats is enough to hold everything from groceries to vacation luggage. If you need space for larger items, such as furniture, then fold the second and third rows to reveal a cavernous 96.8 cubic feet.

With an available panoramic sunroof running almost the length of all three rows, you'll feel just like Atlas, holding up the skies above! You'll have a good view of sunny days and starry nights, and you can let some fresh air in to reinvigorate your drive.

Keeping Plugged in with Technology Features

Technology in the Volkswagen Atlas sets you up for success at every juncture. One of our favorite features is the optional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, a fully digital display that replaces the traditional instrument cluster behind the steering wheel.

You can customize it to shows navigation maps and more critical vehicle information. It stores up to four driver profiles, so you can have your preferred settings ready to go when you are.

This SUV is equipped with a standard VW Car-Net® multimedia system, which acts as your entertainment center. You can pair up your smartphone via Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, or MirrorLink® and use your favorite music, maps, and messaging apps on the go.

A Look Under the Hood: Engine Specifications

What powers the 2019 VW Atlas forward? You'll have two engines to choose from. The base powerhouse, a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder, cranks out 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. For daily driving, that's more than enough oomph to get you moving.

If you want to put more pep in your step, the available 3.6L V6 adds excitement. With 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, you'll have the muscle of a Greek god powering all your latest adventures.

This SUV has the might to move smaller boats and RVs, too, with a 5,000-pound max towing capacity. You can hitch up your family boat and head out to the South Carolina coasts, just a short drive from Bluffton, Hardeeville, and Hilton Head Island!
