2022 Volkswagen Atlas Review
Chart a course in the 2022 Volkswagen Atlas. This spacious and convenient SUV is great for drives around Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, and Harrisburg, PA—or wherever the road takes you. Below, our team at Faulkner Volkswagen has put together a review of some of the features you can expect in the VW Atlas.
2022 Volkswagen Atlas Performance
The VW Atlas starts your globetrotting journey with two impressive engine options. Standard is the 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine, which delivers a capable 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for the 3.6L V6 engine, which provides 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.
While an 8-speed automatic transmission is standard on the VW Atlas, you can use the transmission’s Tiptronic® mode to shift manually and take more control over your driving experience. When properly equipped, the VW Atlas has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds—perfect for hauling a small trailer for extra space or maybe a jet ski or two.
With the available 4MOTION® with Active Control, you’ll have access to four different available all-wheel drive modes. Wherever on—or off—the map you decide to travel, you can choose between Snow, On-Road, Off-Road, or Off-Road Custom Mode to help you tackle various driving situations.
2022 Volkswagen Atlas Interior
Under the hood, the VW Atlas is built for power—behind the wheel, it’s built for comfort. Featuring available leatherette seats and 3-row seating, with space for up to seven passengers, this roomy SUV has plenty of room for friends, family, or whoever you want to bring along.
The VW Atlas has plenty of room for your gear as well. Featuring 20.6 cubic feet of standard cargo space, this can be expanded by lowering the third row for 55.5 cubic feet of space. If you lower the second row, you’ll have a cavernous total of 96.8 cubic feet of space. You can pack your bags and your tents for a weekend in the wild, tools and ladders for a job, or maybe even that new TV you’ve had your eye on.
2022 Volkswagen Atlas Technology
Standard in the VW Atlas is the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit system, which presents you with a fully digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. Choose from the standard 8-inch display or the larger available 10.25-inch fully configurable Digital Cockpit Pro display.
The VW Atlas also features a Volkswagen MIB touchscreen infotainment system. This system affords control over a number of features designed to keep you connected while you drive.
Choose from the 6.5-inch MIB2 Composition Color unit or the available MIB3 8-inch display and enjoy features, like:
- Apple CarPlay® integration
- Android Auto™ integration
- Bluetooth® capability
2022 Volkswagen Atlas Safety
The VW Atlas features a combination of passive and active safety systems to help you feel secure behind the wheel. This includes six standard airbags as well as electronic systems, like an Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Stability Control.
