4 Reasons The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Is The Perfect Summer Romance
The famous German automaker known for their “iconic” Beetle is back at it again, but this time with the 2020 Altas Cross Sport. This mid-size SUV is the ideal vehicle for tackling all of your summer crusades, especially with its generous amount of space, cozy seating, technologically advanced features, enjoyable drive, and overall dependability.
The sleek and stylish coupe is also the one to beat when it comes to affordability, as the current MSRP is only $31,565, (plus destination fee). Here are 4 Reasons The 2020 Atlas Cross Sport Is The Perfect Summer Fling!
Top Competitor In Proving Personal Space
In a lot of ways, the original Volkswagen Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport are quite similar, but the main feature that makes them fraternal is the Sport’s elimination of the third row, which is only a bummer for large families but pretty convenient for tiny families or newlyweds who want all of the benefits that the Atlas has to offer but without the bulky size.
With the absence of the third row, the empty-nesters are free to put in more cargo as they please, more specifically a chart-topping 40.3 cubic-feet! Backseat passengers are also provided with almost 3 inches more legroom than big brother Atlas. On top of that, if needed, drivers can fold-down the second-row seats and transform the cargo space into a remarkable 77.8 cubic-feet.
The Altas Cross Sport beats its competitors Ford Edge, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Honda Passport, or Nissan Murano in having the most spaciousness in the back seat and many others in the amount of cargo.
Incredible Towing Power
If large cargo capacity wasn’t enough, the VW Cross proves to be quite sporty (pun intended) with its hefty 4,000-pound towing capacity! This 6-cylinder SUV pushes 276-horsepower 3.6-liter engine with only 1 mile per gallon less than the 4-cylinder version when armed with AWD (all-wheel-drive).
A Comfortable Ride
A ride that is steady and smooth is pretty much essential for those long summer voyages, especially for those who have small children. The Cross Sport SUV will definitely prove to be your friend, as it has a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that has a quick response, while the 3.6-liter V6 provides much more power, but with a stable punch. The handling is also up-to-par and fairly lightweight.
You’ll Never Be Bored And You’ll Always Be Safe
They don’t call it the Atlas Cross “Sport” for nothing (okay, no more puns…). This bad boy has an all-wheel-drive option prepared to knock your socks off when cruising through the Sahara…or some other off-road camping site. Volkswagen also has a 4Motion system that delivers power to all four wheels and is equipped with more than enough traction to keep you safe on icy or wet roads.
The Beetle Brand has also earned a reputation for having a wide range of infotainment features for their models, especially the Cross Sport. Higher trim levels are gifted with touchscreen displays, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, digital and gauge displays that are greatly customizable. It also features 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and VW’s slick Car-Net connectivity app, which gives the driver remote activated vehicle data.
Safety features provide little to no subtlety as well, like with Dynamic Road Sign Display, Traffic Jam Assist, adaptive cruise control, lane centering assist, autonomous emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring. It also includes a semi-autonomous driving mode that is exclusive on higher trims.
