2021 VW Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport SUV

Both winter and the new year are in full swing – what better time to get into a brand new SUV? There are many reasons why the new 2021 Volkswagen Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport are great for the winter months. In fact, here are 5 that we can give you:

1. Excellent Safety Ratings
Both the 2021 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport each earned the highest overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Both SUV models provide a combination of passive and active safety systems.
2. Stay Warm
During these winter months, both SUVs will do a great job at keeping you warm – especially here in New England. The extended-range remote start kit will allow you to start your car without leaving the house. As you are bundling up inside the house, your Atlas can begin warming up the interior, saving you time and making your drive more comfortable. Heated seats are standard in the front row and an available option for the second row – they also offer three levels of warmth for keeping the family cozy.
3. Utilize Storage Space
The Atlas has extensive storage space to fit equipment for every winter activity. With 20.6 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row, there is ample space to store the family’s winter coats and luggage. The Atlas Cross Sport, which has two rows, offers additional cargo room – 40.3 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 77.8 cubic feet when folded down.
4. Drive with Peace of Mind
The Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport both offer impressive driver assistance features. Those include a blind-spot monitoring system, adaptive cruise control, and lane and front assist technologies. Snow Mode, a function of the 4Motion All-Wheel Drive system, adapts to the conditions of the road and shifts the engine into high gear.
5. Awarded Best Family Car
Last, but certainly not least, the Atlas has been named Best Family Car by Cars.com. The criteria in order to make that list? Safety, room, value, comfort, and versatility, Add all those together and the Atlas certainly fits the description of a family car.
