VW has not still clued us into all the choices and offers for the 2021 Atlas and Atlas Cross Activity, but the principles will stay the very same from previous yr. 

The 2021 Atlas and Atlas Cross Activity will be available in S, SE, SEL trim with a handful of tech, premium, and R-Line offers adding different creature comforts and colourful accents scattered through. The foundation Atlas expenses $32,565 in the foundation configuration and can access up towards about $50,000 totally loaded. The Atlas Cross Activity is mostly equivalent, besides for a couple compact dissimilarities, and expenses about $1,000 less than a comparably outfitted Atlas.

It is a 7 for functions many thanks to great tools in each individual edition including the foundation Atlas S and it receives a different stage for a 4-yr/50,000-mile warranty that is even now generous among competitors. 

The foundation Atlas S receives a 6.five-inch touchscreen for infotainment, energetic protection functions (lined over), fabric upholstery, 18-inch wheels, and three rows of seats (two in the Atlas Cross Activity). 

The top SEL goes even more with an 8.-inch touchscreen, driver-assistance functions, artificial leather upholstery, 20-inch wheels, three-zone automated local climate command, premium audio, panoramic sunroof, available captain’s chairs, wi-fi smartphone charger, and distant start off. R-Line variations include sporty interior and exterior touches. 

We’d decide for the Atlas SE with technological know-how package deal that expenses $41,215 with a V-6 and all-wheel travel with a person caveat—the audio procedure does not seem good to us. We’ll convenience our bodies alternatively with an 8.-inch touchscreen, artificial leather upholstery, three-zone local climate command, 20-inch wheels, and five USB ports. 

The premium audio procedure made by Fender (yeah, the guitar folks) is reserved for SEL trim concentrations, and when it seems good, it also seems like many thousand additional pounds tacked on to the bottom line. 

VW infotainment

VW’s infotainment is a person of the additional straightforward units available from an automaker, and its simplicity is refreshing. We propose it for practically each individual purpose besides for navigation, which isn’t all that good. 

Each Atlas receives smartphone compatibility computer software including Apple CarPlay and Android Automobile that can sub in for navigation. Invest in new cords even though each individual Atlas for 2021 is probably to be outfitted with more recent USB-C connectors for telephones. 

An optional ten.three-inch electronic instrument cluster is available on top trims and can be custom made to display gauges, navigation maps, or other data. It is mainly sharp and lag-totally free, even though some menus and other icons can obscure data like the excursion meter, and icons for some protection units can be complicated to browse.
