As the largest option created for the American market, you naturally want to know if seven passengers means seven adults, or a cramped rear made only for those under the age of five. Interior specs aren’t available at this time, but we do know it’s overall size. Here’s how it compares:

As you can see, the length is where you will see the most improvement for the Atlas, which makes sense as you need more room in the rear for extra seating.

Other things to know about the VW Atlas? The model is built right here in the U.S. at the Chattanooga, TN plant and it will be available in five trim levels. Available features include a digital cockpit, optional 4Motion on V6 trims, LED taillights, Car-Net w/App-Connect, a Fender Audio System w/12 speakers, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and more. The only confirmed standard features are LED headlights and DRLs, automatic post-collision braking and an innovative folding rear seat for the third row that works even with car seats installed.

Engine options will be a standard 2.0-liter turbo 4 with a 238hp output or the 3.6-liter V6 with a 280 horsepower output.
