Love my black on black atlas!

I haven't had it long enough to have any problems. The sel turbo v4 has all of the features you would want and excellent gas mileage because v4 but drives like a v6 with great pick up. Lots of room and has the 3rd row seat. 2nd row captain chairs makes it more comfy for passengers. Has a sunroof that goes all the way to the back seats. 3 zoned air and heat so everyone can control their own air. The seats are leatherette. Much better than leather like I had on my previous car.

- Julia K

Big spaces in the atlas and rear camera view.

I really love my atlas. It drives smooth and has a rear camera that helps with my reverse driving. It is a lot of space for my 2 kids, so there is plenty of room for groceries, toys, stroller, car seat, etc. It has the feature to turn off engine when stopping on a traffic light and you can turn it on or off on your choice. Steering wheel features Bluetooth phone connection and other settings for the cluster and instrument panel that is handy on the wheel.

- Jud B

VW atlas, plenty of room for 6ft adult.

Vehicle has a little bit of a lag when pressing on the gas. The third row of seats is super roomy and has plenty of two growing boys. The tech package was worth every penny. It is nice to have support in determining when and when not to move over to another lane. The sound system is adequate and I appreciate how it connects with my iPhone. Super easy to drive. Lots of room for kids and luggage. Drives well in winter weather, snow.
