The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is still the largest vehicle the company has ever sold in the United State. A few designs and interior updates for 2021 bring the Volkswagen Atlas more in line with its groovy, Teutonic forebears, but it’s still an emphatically American product, reflecting the changing values of the Product and its buyers.
The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is a good looking vehicle, particularly because its facelift did away with the solid front end that made it look heavy and awkward. A more beautiful styled grille, headlights, and nearly horizontal hood help the Atlas look more like a German vehicle. The front end somehow looks like the lauded Golf Mk4 sold in the early 2000s. The side profile and rear views are all but constant for 2021, with a slightly redesigned rear light and not much else.
The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas features a large-crossover interior expanse in a midsize footmark. Front passengers have more than enough space to be comfortable on a long-distance journey, though the easy, heated seats might be a bit too shapeless for support. The second-row seats, there’s enough space for kids and young teens, adults. The bench is flat as a pancake, but tall people will appreciate a seat bottom that’s long enough for their thigh support. The tilt-and-slide release has third-row access even with a child seat installed.
The Atlas comes standard with the company’s Digital Cockpit gauge cluster, which is both interesting and easy to use. We appreciated the diversity of information it offered, including altitude, navigation, audio, fuel economy, and driver-assist status. It also has a wireless apple car play and android auto integration. Unlike Volkswagens of the past, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas isn’t terribly composed at higher speeds.
