Volkswagen unveils 2020 Atlas Cross Sport
The Cross Sport has a more coupe-like profile than the standard Atlas.
Volkswagen has revealed the all-new Atlas Cross Sport, a sportier five-seat alternative to the Atlas.
The Cross Sport has a more coupe-like profile than its larger sibling, omitting the third seating row in favor of a sleeker profile that still provides 40.3 cubic feet of stowage space behind the rear seats.
Out front, the crossover features a bold three-bar grille that aligns with its unique headlights. An R-Line package will be available, adding 21-inch wheels and even sportier bumpers with chrome and piano black accents around the lower front air scoops.
The interior receives a few upgrades over the seven-seat Atlas, adding a new steering wheel and available stitching accents on the seats and door inserts. Buyers can also opt for heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, rear sunshades, and a 12-speaker Fender audio system.
Powertrains match the Atlas, providing a choice between a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 235 horsepower or a 3.6-liter V6 that bumps output to 276 horses.
The Atlas Cross Sport will be built in Chattanooga alongside the Atlas and Passat, with the first deliveries expected this spring.
