2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport: Luxury paired with excitement

Unveiled last year, the all-new Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is back for the 2021 model year without any significant changes, but that was to be expected. The Atlas Cross Sport is less than a year old, and it is still one of the most advanced and technologically modern five-seat SUV in the segment. It blends luxury with refinement and sportiness, providing German engineered performance to families in need of space.

Based off of the three-row Atlas, the Atlas Cross Sport is luxurious and refined like the Volkswagen Atlas, but it’s also a bit more compact. It still holds over 1,000 litres of total cargo space, but it’s meant for buyers who need a lot of space for cargo but only need space for five passengers. It’s also shorter and more agile than the Atlas, and more accessible as well with a starting price set at roughly $1,000 less than the larger Atlas.

Powering the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is either an efficient and powerful turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 235 horsepower, or a proven and rugged 3.6-litre V6 with 276 horsepower. Both offer the power buyers expect from a Volkswagen vehicle, with the turbo being a bit more efficient while the V6 being a bit quicker.

Unlike many of its competitors, the 2021 Atlas Cross Sport gets standard all-wheel drive with the advanced 4Motion system. Getting guaranteed stability and confidence in winter doesn’t cost extra in the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

There are three versions of the new 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport starting with the base Trendline model starting at $38,995. Despite being the base model, there’s still a ton of equipment in there including a Side Assist Blind Spot Monitoring system, 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Front Assist Braking. Other features in the Comfortline and Execline versions include a 360-degree camera, ventilated front seats, an 8-inch screen for the infotainment system, and so much more.

On the road, the new 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport offers an impressive blend of performance and comfort. It handles exceptionally well and feels poised and stable in every situation, but it is also quiet and refined. It feels a lot more luxurious than its price would suggest.
