  • Interior

    Fits Up To 7

    The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas seats up to 7 passengers quite comfortably. The second row consists of three seats and is large enough to hold three car seats, and the third row consists of two seats. If you opt for an upgrade, you can get two captain's chairs on the second row, which would make the overall seating capacity 6 passengers but would bring even more room to the second row.

    Why the interior space matters so much is it was literally built for the North American family. If you require extra legroom or have your own crew of small kids, then the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas can give you all the interior space you could dream of. Everyone stays comfortable, too, with the available tri-zone automatic climate control. The first two rows also have available heated seats and can enjoy the premium leather seating. Accessing the third row is simple. You can easily fold and slide the second row for access to the third row, even with a car seat strapped into the second row. The 60/40 split for the second row and 50/50 split for the third row bring more flexibility to navigate passengers, cargo, or both.

    Even if you don’t require the extra passenger space, the 2021 Atlas interior can easily be converted to extra cargo volume. With a maximum 98.6 cu.ft. of cargo capacity, you can pack almost anything with you. Using the available hands-free liftgate makes it even easier to pack a full load. If you want the best of both worlds by using all three roads with cargo packed, you still get 20.6 cu.ft. of cargo storage behind the third row. So go ahead and pack the soccer gear and take the team along for the ride!

  • Technology

    The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas received new technology for this model year, and it doesn’t disappoint. The 2021 Atlas SE model and above feature a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen as standard. This system hosts a world of opportunity for connection, entertainment, and navigation. You’ll wonder how you ever drove without it.

    You can connect your smartphone through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and access your favorite apps through the infotainment screen. When it’s time to navigate, the available navigation system will guide you at each turn to your destination. Charging your compatible smartphone is easier in the 2021 Atlas with wireless charging.

    The Digital Cockpit

    A favorite technology feature in the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is the digital cockpit. One of the popular features in the midsize SUV segment is an instrument cluster, but the Atlas takes it one step further with a larger cockpit-style display. You can choose what high-resolution information you want to see, including an expanded map of your turn-by-turn navigation. This makes any drive, long or short, more manageable with all of the important information where you need it most.

    Stay Easily Connected

    Every family needs more convenience in their lives. The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas helps with an easier loading process with a remote start on the key fob or through the Volkswagen Car-Net app. This app also allows you to control other features of your Atlas and give you necessary vehicle information wherever you are. This is perfect if you want alerts while your teen is driving or when you want to start the Atlas and blast the air on a hot summer day.

    Drive With Confidence

    The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas has a variety of driver assistance technology features. The Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking will first help determine if your Volkswagen Atlas can fit into the parking spot, and then it will help you steer in and out of the parking spot, making it a perfect fit. Adaptive Cruise Control can help maintain a safe distance from other vehicles while in cruise control. Going a step further, you have the option for the Travel Assist, which brings you semi-autonomous driving assistance. You keep your hands on the wheel, and the Travel Assist will steer, accelerate, and slow down as needed. This makes a normal drive to work or school much more thrilling.

    It’s easy to see that the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is ahead of its time in the technology department. From the small details of wireless charging to the big feature of Travel Assist, the Atlas makes technology smart and useful throughout the vehicle. You will love how connected you are when behind the wheel of the Atlas.

  • Safety

    Advanced safety features are standard and expected in the midsize SUV segment. The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas provides a variety of safety features as standard, plus more options to add to your experience. The Atlas even sets itself apart by offering safety features you wouldn’t normally expect.

    Safety In Every Aspect

    Standard in each 2021 Volkswagen Atlas model is a Rear View Camera System, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Warning, and Pedestrian Monitoring. These safety features can not only help keep you and your passengers safe but also keep other vehicles and pedestrians safe as well. Think of it as an extra layer of defense to your strong driving ability.

    A set of advanced safety technology features, known as IQ.Drive, bring extra assurance and confidence to your drives. It includes the standard safety features found in all 2021 Volkswagen Atlas SUVs but also includes more. Lane Assist can help you stay in your defined lane if it senses you drifting. Emergency Assist will ultimately stop the vehicle if it senses the driver cannot operate the steering wheel and is not responding to alerts. While none of these features replace your attention, it's comforting to know there is more protection.

    Additionally, there’s an available Overhead View Camera that can give you extra views around your Atlas. This works beautifully with the standard Rear View Camera System. Especially when you’re around many family and kid functions, it can put your mind at ease to have extra views. These features make the Park Assist technology easier to use.

    Post-Collision Safety

    Unfortunately, collisions can and do happen even to the best of drivers. The good news for you is the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas has available safety features to assist you after a collision. This truly sets the Atlas apart with its assistance before and after a collision. The Intelligent Crash Response System will respond to a collision with airbags deployed by unlocking the doors, turning off the fuel pump, turning on the hazard lights. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System works to slow the Atlas down after a collision. This will hopefully prevent any additional collisions.

    The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is filled with advanced safety features that are both proactive and reactive in preventing or lessening the severity of an accident. Whether you just use the standard safety features or take advantage of them all, you will undoubtedly feel safe in the 2021 Atlas. Safety is something you never want to compromise on, and with the 2021 Atlas, you don't have to.
