What is the Volkswagen Atlas?
The Volkswagen Atlas is a completely new, 3-row, 7-passenger crossover vehicle designed to take on the likes of the Ford Explorer and the Toyota Highlander. This is an extremely important vehicle segment in North America, and Atlas marks Volkswagen's first foray into it. Separating Atlas from its rivals are its looks. It is unarguably handsome, with a touch of sportiness here (eg, the sloping rear windshield) and a touch of boldness there (eg, the flat-topped fender flares).

3 rows and 7 passengers. It sounds big.
Big is right. Size matters to buyers in this crossover segment, and VW stretched its versatile MQB platform to meet their needs. The Atlas is 16.5 feet long, 6.5 feet wide and about 6 feet tall. Front-to-back, the passenger arrangement will be 2-3-2. This configuration provides the 2-person third row with enough space to comfortably accommodate adult humans, not just baby humans. This means the Atlas will be able to take a group of 7 adults wherever it is groups of 7 adults go.
