Engine Choices of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Although the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas and 2017 Mazda CX-9 is very similar in length, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas offers a larger amount of cargo space at all points. One feature in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas that is not found in many other three-row crossovers/SUVs is an easy-fold and slide mechanism on the second-row seats. Even when outfitted with a child’s car seat/booster seat, the seats fold down significantly and slide forward so that third-row passengers can enjoy easy entering/exiting.

In addition to the space, we are loving the powerful engine options offered by the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. These engine options include:

  • 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder (235 horsepower; 258 lb.-ft. torque; 2,000-pound towing capacity)

  • 3.6L V6 (276 horsepower; 266 lb.-ft. torque; 2,000 to 5,000-pound towing capacity)
