2021 Volkswagen Atlas (VW) Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

VW has not but clued us into all the alternatives and deals for the 2021...

VW has not but clued us into all the alternatives and deals for the 2021 Atlas and Atlas Cross Activity, but the fundamentals will continue to be the exact same from past calendar year. 

The 2021 Atlas and Atlas Cross Activity will be accessible in S, SE, SEL trim with a handful of tech, high quality, and R-Line deals including various creature comforts and colorful accents scattered during. The base Atlas prices $32,565 in the base configuration and can achieve up toward about $fifty,000 absolutely loaded. The Atlas Cross Activity is largely equivalent, other than for a number of little variations, and prices about $one,000 less than a comparably outfitted Atlas.

It is a 7 for options many thanks to great products in every edition together with the base Atlas S and it receives a different place for a four-calendar year/fifty,000-mile warranty that is nevertheless generous among the competitors. 

The base Atlas S receives a 6.5-inch touchscreen for infotainment, active protection options (covered higher than), fabric upholstery, 18-inch wheels, and three rows of seats (two in the Atlas Cross Activity). 

The major SEL goes additional with an 8.-inch touchscreen, driver-support options, artificial leather-based upholstery, twenty-inch wheels, three-zone automatic climate regulate, high quality audio, panoramic sunroof, accessible captain’s chairs, wi-fi smartphone charger, and remote start off. R-Line variations include sporty inside and exterior touches. 

We’d decide for the Atlas SE with technology deal that prices $forty one,215 with a V-6 and all-wheel push with just one caveat—the audio process does not audio great to us. We’ll ease and comfort our bodies alternatively with an 8.-inch touchscreen, artificial leather-based upholstery, three-zone climate regulate, twenty-inch wheels, and five USB ports. 

The high quality audio process designed by Fender (yeah, the guitar individuals) is reserved for SEL trim amounts, and though it appears great, it also appears like quite a few thousand much more pounds tacked on to the bottom line. 

VW infotainment

VW’s infotainment is just one of the much more simple programs accessible from an automaker, and its simplicity is refreshing. We suggest it for just about every purpose other than for navigation, which isn’t all that great. 

Just about every Atlas receives smartphone compatibility software together with Apple CarPlay and Android Automobile that can sub in for navigation. Invest in new cords even though every Atlas for 2021 is very likely to be outfitted with newer USB-C connectors for telephones. 

An optional ten.three-inch electronic instrument cluster is accessible on major trims and can be custom-made to display gauges, navigation maps, or other data. It is mainly sharp and lag-absolutely free, although some menus and other icons can obscure data like the trip meter, and icons for some protection programs can be tough to go through.
