Seats 7. Thrills everyone.
A full life is just that: full. Kids, sports gear, lumber for that new deck, and more. Enter the
all-new 2018 Atlas – the biggest, newest Volkswagen on the block. Seats 7 comfortably in
3 rows, connects everyone with state-of-the-art tech, and goes virtually anywhere, with
performance-enhancing features like available 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive. All dressed in a
level of refinement that’s truly exceptional among SUVs. And all exceptionally well priced.
Accommodating. Nimble. Polished. Like having your own family concierge. Without having to tip.
A chameleon on wheels, the
Atlas is ever-changing – just
like your life. Mix it up, load it
up, and get fired up for serious
family fun.

you move? Not here. True to its
name, the Atlas has plenty of
brawn, with ample pep to go –

do everything? One that’s ready for
virtually anything. With a multitude
of driver and passenger protection
features built right in, you can focus

about connections.

and back again, plug in to a world of entertainment, convenience, and
safety. It’s all part of a full complement of electronic wizardry to help you

Because when you don’t have to leave anyone – or anything – behind, you’re free to
enjoy the adventures that lie ahead.

Fold-flat cargo space
In the Atlas, comfort and versatility never take a back seat.
Unless you count the adult-sized 3rd row seating – accessible

completely flat, the answer is a resounding “yes.”

Looks as good as it feels.
With the 2018 Atlas, brawn and beauty coexist in a perfect marriage.

not too aggressive. A vehicle that delivers on the promise of power and
freedom – your home away from home.
LED headlights and available
LED tail lights

expression of the Atlas ethos.

and heated second-row seats
Too hot, too cold, or just right?
Here, driver, front passenger, and
folks in the back all get to choose
their own temperature preferences.
Even if the difference is as little
as 0.5 degrees, proving individual
comfort is no fairy tale.
You’ll feel like you’ve reached
cruising altitude on a night flight,
with ambient lighting that provides
mellow, low-level illumination
throughout the cabin.
Everyone’s built differently. And
with buttons that offer 10 ways to
customize your individual seating
position, achieving maximum
comfort and good driving posture has
never been easier – or more fun.
While you keep your cool up
front with ventilated seats, your
passengers will warm to the idea
of heated rear seats. Who says you
can’t please everyone?
Available heated front seats
Cold weather driving got you
shivering just thinking about it? When
you opt for heated front seats, you’ll
find the road ahead is infinitely more
enjoyable with a toasty warm behind.
Available 2nd row captain’s chairs shown.
Available Front Assist Autonomous Emergency
Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring*
A vehicle ahead is going considerably slower, or quickly
slams on the brakes. Or even if there’s a pedestrian within
170 metres of your front bumper, the Atlas responds
instantly, alerting you to slow down, and automatically
braking if you don’t. Best backseat driver ever.
Available Blind Spot Detection with Rear
Traffic Alert*
When you’re backing up or changing lanes, radar
and sonar trigger driver alerts and initiate braking
to help prevent dangerous driving manoeuvres.
Even owls are envious.
Automatic post-collision braking system*
In the event of an unforeseen accident, you may not
be able to react instantly, but the Atlas can. Seatbelts
are automatically tightened, and emergency braking
is deployed to help prevent further accidents.
Available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go*
Free your mind – and your feet. Cruising in traffic is a
breeze, with automatic braking when things slow down.
And when traffic clears ahead, it accelerates back up to
your set cruising speed. All without your feet ever having
touched the pedals.**
Didn’t see that coming?
Relax, it’s an Atlas.
The 2018 Atlas offers a full arsenal of safety systems, and available
driver assistance features* to help combat the hidden perils of driving
every day, even on those off-days. That’s reassurance you can enjoy
mile after mile, smile after smile.
