2020 VW Altas Cross Sport

Last Updated:

Just a few more pictures of the upcoming 5 seater version of the Atlas.
I think VW has actually done a much better job than Honda with the Passport.
As the Passport is just a shorter Pilot. With the same interior etc…
This is actually a different design than the regular, longer Atlas.
While the interior is not new, it has been revised a bit with new trims, a more modern console, etc…
And the V6 is still available.
I think this will be really popular for VW in the US. As it will go directly against 2 other new models, the Passport as well as the new Chevrolet Blazer.

  1. It's so hard for me to be excited about the Atlas or any of its varients after seeing pictures of the Touareg….

  2. I find it especially attractive how straight out of the factory VW made the plastic on the front of the climate controls have that wiped-with-a-dirty-wet-rag look, and how VW proudly does not conceal the Rubbermaid origins of the interior plastics. Design elements like these are a great complement to the sheer boredom of the exterior design and the cheapest looking headlight units this side of a Tata Nano.

  3. Dave in Canada, it much bigger then the Tiguan. It is a midsize crossover. Tiguan is a compact size crossover!

  4. The Tiguan we get here in the US is the long version. At 185 inches long, it is about 4 to 5 inches longer than the Rav-4 or CR-V.
    Still, the new Atlas Cross Sport will be 193 inches long. Which is only about 5 inches less than the regular 7 seater version.
    But it will be quite a bit larger than the Tiguan.

  5. Agree with Tard.

    I'm old and grade school was 50+ years ago.
    In those days the schools used to give you wooden rulers every year. I still have some (actually my mother never through them out). There was a natural progression of precision in the rulers. 1 inch. Next year 1/2 inch, next year 1/4 inch, next year 1/8 inch. I guess they thought the kids couldn't handle it the 1/8 inch lines until they were ready.

    This thing looks like it was designed with a ruler with 1/2 inch markings. Doesn't make it a bad vehicle. But it doesn't look like it has very precise shapes. Things look "close enough" correct.
