The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
Life's As Big As You Make It!

Our excitement is growing as the first arrivals of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas are here! As your local Danbury VW dealer, serving Brewster New York, Fairfield and Litchfield Counties and beyond, Danbury Volkswagen is gearing up for this signature American addition to our lineup of German-engineered, top quality automobiles. We know that you'll enjoy the generous Standard Features, performance and reliability of Volkswagen's new midsize SUV as you take it to the scenic roads of Fairfield, Danbury, New Milford and Wilton, around New York and Connecticut, or even off road. Are you heading for a golf course just off Route 7 or the Merritt Parkway? Trekking down to Greenwich or Norwalk for some city action? How about boating up at Squantz Pond? Atlas is the way to go, with all your gear along for the ride. With the special driving modes that help every Atlas manage the terrain around it most efficiently, it's like owning four Sport Utility Vehicles in one!

Welcome Volkswagen's New Midsize SUV!

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas midsize sport utility vehicle, which officially entered series production in November of 2016, is due to arrive at United States dealerships by the Spring of 2017. Built on the same modular MQB platform as the iconic Golf, this SUV designed specifically for the American market is a very different "big brother" than the Golf whose underpinnings it shares.

Atlas was designed for the USA as a family activity vehicle, equipped with a full three rows of seating that includes enough third row legroom for adults to ride comfortably. Even with all three rows occupied, there is still room to carry luggage or gear for the family outing, going to weekend sports activities, or just handling the daily chores. The Atlas brings an innovative seating system to the market, which allows for the most comfortable ride for all occupants. The tilt-and-slide second row also makes access to the third row easy for both children and adults. A split folding second row means that a child seat can remain safely strapped in place without blocking the way into the last row.

Volkswagen is proud to manufacture the 2018 Atlas right here in the United States of America, at our Chattanooga, Tennessee plant complex. The Atlas shares its production facilities with our popular Passat midsize sedan. Volkswagen is employing American design talent, American engineering, American market insight and American workers to produce a refined vehicle, ready to take America by storm. Wouldn't your family and active lifestyle want one?

The 2018 Atlas incorporates a unique second row seating system designed for maximum versatility. With adjustable slide, taller and shorter passengers can be equally comfortable. The tilt and fold-flat capability improves access to the third row for children and adults, and the seating allows empty child seats to be kept in place (using the standard LATCH attachment points) without blocking access to the back row. The second row can fit up to three child seats, each with LATCH points. The third row is also a 50-50 split seat and can fold flat for carrying cargo, with headrests that are easy to fold out of the way. The third row was engineered to be comfortable seating, but also will not block the driver's rear view, which is important for the safety of all on board.

Power and Performance

The Atlas will be offered with two available engines. The first is VW's gas-sipping, four-cylinder, turbocharged, 2.0-liter direct-injection TSI model, which produces a generous 238 horsepower. This is an improved version of the 2.0-liter found on the Golf GTI performance hatchback. And for drivers who need a little extra punch, the well-known Volkswagen VR6, 3.6-liter six-cylinder powerplant puts out 280 horsepower under the hood of the Atlas. Both engines are coupled to Volkswagen's 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® for smooth and responsive driving.

Atlas will also come equipped with a Drive Mode Selector, which will help you make the most of engine power and smooth transmission under a variety of road or off-road conditions. Some Atlas 2.0T and 3.6 VR6 models will have front-wheel drive, while others, powered by the 3.6L VR6, will also be available with Volkswagen's latest-generation 4MOTION full time all-wheel drive system.

Atlas' Strength Is In Safety

Volkswagen has always been committed to producing vehicles with the safety of driver and passengers in mind. Reducing or avoiding injury is critical when accidents happen. However, it is also a key Volkswagen principle to help drivers avoid accidents. Our advanced safety systems which are expected to be available with most trim levels of Atlas include a backup camera, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic warning, and collision mitigating braking. This is over and above our standard safety features, like safety belts, LATCH restraints for child seats, front and side airbags, and a host of engineered features designed to keep the accident outside and you safe inside.

However, nothing is as safe as a well-prepared driver. So when you're ready to take to the roads in an Atlas, make sure you come to our dealership and drive one for yourself. Our dealership and Volkswagen always encourage our customers to operate your VW safely, because we like you a lot!

Volkswagen's Intelligent Crash Response System is found in all Volkswagen models. Should a collision occur that causes the airbags to deploy and the ICRS to be activated, ICRS will automatically unlock all the doors, disable the fuel pump, and turn on the hazard lights. The system helps to insure that your risk of an engine fire is minimized, that you can get out or First Responders can get in, and having the flashers on will insure you are found in case your Volkswagen goes off the road. Another safety system on all Volkswagens is the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. One of the most dangerous situations a driver and their vehicle can be in is just after a minor collision. The driver may not be able to react quickly enough to prevent a follow-up collision, and that's actually where the most damage has a likelihood of happening. Regardless of whether the force of the first collision was enough to set off the vehicle's airbags, the impact sensors will engage the system. This causes the car to apply the brakes automatically for as long as it takes to slow the car down to 6 mph. Post collision braking is intended to prevent your Volkswagen from rolling into another vehicle or dangerous situation, and give you a moment to regain control of your vehicle. Drivers can always override the system by pressing the gas or brake pedals.

Many Driver Assistance systems are in your Atlas to keep you on the road and out of trouble. Lane Assist uses a camera to monitor the lane markings and will alert you if you begin to drift without your turn signal on. VW's Adaptive Cruise Control has a radar system to insure that you reduce speed as you approach slower moving traffic ahead, without having to shut the cruise control off. Front Assist is always on the lookout for obstructions or stopped vehicles. It is tied in with the Adaptive Cruise Control and includes Automatic Emergency Braking, so that if you don't notice the danger coming, your Atlas can still stop in time.

Your 2018 Atlas can also look out behind you! Starting with the Rear View Camera, your in-dashboard display will give you a picture of everything just behind your bumper. Advanced Blind Spot Warning and Cross Traffic Detection alerts you when something's coming behind you that you might not see. As you drive, indicators can tell you if a car is just tucked away neatly where you won't see it if you wanted to change lanes or pull over. It's also very useful in crowded parking lots when you may not see an approaching car as you back out.

Light Assist is great for the times when you adventure with your new Atlas at night. As you steer, your headlamps will bend just a bit, so you can see what's coming up ahead of you. Available fog lights and puddle lights help to keep your way lit, wherever your way is going to be.

Atlas can even give you an extra assist when you need to park, parallel or otherwise. Park Distance Control ("Park Pilot") helps you stay far from objects, and the advanced Park Assist uses cameras to help you monitor how much space you have, just in case you're trying to fit your Atlas into a tight parking spot or parallel parking on a city street. Speaking of cameras, Atlas will also debut a new Volkswagen feature called "360-Degree View", which uses all onboard cameras to help you see the whole picture of what's around your Atlas that can block your way. It's the latest in the industry's best suite of tools to keep your ride safe and your adventures fun.

Big Space

The Atlas was designed with class-leading interior volume in mind - room for up to seven people and all the things that are needed to make your favorite experiences happen. With a total of 153.7 cubic feet, generous headroom, hip room and legroom in all three rows, and both the first and second row seats adjustable, even tall adults have no problem riding comfortably in any seating position. Lots of gear can fit in the 96.8 cubic feet of total cargo room with the second and third row seats folded flat. Anything from the family dog to a small kayak or a family's luggage for a long vacation fits. And with available roof cargo carriers, trailer towing preparation on select trims, and a host of VW-approved accessories like bicycle and snowboard racks, your Atlas will be able to carry all the essentials for your weekday or weekend adventures.

Volkswagen Technology

First thing you'll notice after getting behind the wheel of the 2018 Atlas and starting one up will be Volkswagen's new Digital Cockpit. It's more capable than your ordinary panel of gauges, because you can change it around to display the vehicle functions most important to you. If you use onboard navigation, the Digital Cockpit can also give you directional prompts on the driver's display, so you can keep your eyes where they belong. On the road (or off it, if that's what you're doing).

Add to the standard onboard features and Digital Cockpit, all of Volkswagen's Car-Net® capability will be available for you with the Atlas. You can operate select vehicle functions from a mobile app, connect your smartphone via Bluetooth to the Atlas, and obtain motorist help with the available Safety and Security subscription based service.

Car-Net® Connected Vehicle Services

VW Car-Net® makes your Volkswagen more like a friend. It gives advice, helps you along the way, entertains you, and watches out for you. It connects you to the world outside all from the comfort of your driver's seat. VW Car-Net® is your partner in drive.

There are three levels of Volkswagen Car-Net® capability. The basic Car-Net® App Connect takes advantage of the MIB II infotainment system, auxiliary USB connectors and onboard Bluetooth connectivity. Car-Net® App-Connect includes free smartphone apps, downloadable from iTunes® and Google Play® for a wide variety of compatible phones. App-Connect allows you to tell your Atlas what you want, and it will use your phone's apps to help you navigate, read e-mail, or do anything within reason. (* Volkswagen and the NHTSA always recommend you practice safe driving habits and avoid distracted driving at all times.)

VW's Car-Net® Security and Service allow your connected Atlas to have additional capabilities. Atlas can tell you when it may need maintenance, when a driver other than you goes outside of a safe zone that you choose, or drives too fast, and can send alerts in the event of a crash. If you get locked out or stuck in a mall parking lot during the holidays, Car-Net® can help you remotely unlock your vehicle, honk the horn and flash the lights until you're back where you need to be. Behind the wheel.

The Car-Net® Guide and Inform subscription-based service is the most advanced capability available to Atlas owners. Supported by the industry-leading Connected Vehicle Services team at Verizon Telematics®, you have real people ready to help when you need it. From getting directions sent to your Atlas to finding local landmarks or calling for help after a crash, your Volkswagen can do everything in its power to serve your needs, along with the huge network of connected car specialists, service and parts professionals, and your team right here at Danbury Volkswagen.

Select Atlas models will include vehicle onboard wi-fi, to allow every passenger, including tablet-loving backseat riders, to enjoy games, music and entertainment from their favorite devices. Your Atlas Product Specialist has all the details of feature availability, what devices are compatible, and can deliver your new Atlas paired with your favorite devices.

Atlas R-Line

One of the available packages will be for Atlas R-Line. From unique performance-inspired styling to design enhancements, the R-Line Atlas takes style and sporty features in an SUV to the level of Volkswagen. Available on upcoming SE and SEL trims, with the 4-cylinder TSI Turbo (FWD Only) and 3.6-liter VR6 (FWD or 4MOTION AWD), the R-Line package is expected to go on sale later after the initial Spring 2017 launch of the model.

The new trim package augments the Chattanooga-built SUV's sportiness with exterior and interior design elements that give it an even more dynamic appearance. The Atlas R-Line was debuted at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The R-Line package offers a full suite of connected vehicle services and driver assistance features. The exterior styling details include 20-inch aluminum-alloy twin-spoke wheels; R-Line badging; unique front and rear bumpers that incorporate stylish air intakes at the front and a diffusor in glossy black paint at the rear; and side skirts. Inside, the Atlas R-Line welcomes drivers with the R-Line logo on the start screen of Volkswagen's Modular Infotainment Platform (MIB II). Other interior features include an R-Line steering wheel clip and stainless-steel sport pedal covers.

Atlas Weekend Edition

Unveiled at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, the Atlas Weekend Edition is the modern-day "Go Anywhere" family adventure vehicle, which pays tribute to the Vanagon and Eurovan "weekender" pop-up campers made popular by previous generations of Volkswagen fans. The all-new Atlas was designed to let people live a life as big as their imaginations. The Atlas Weekend Edition integrates several available accessories that enhance the SUV's versatility with innovative cargo solutions. The Weekend Edition concept was based on an SEL Premium model, equipped with a 3.6-liter VR6 engine rated for 276-280 horsepower, paired with Volkswagen's advanced 4Motion® all-wheel drive with Drive Mode Select.

Fitted with 18-inch Prisma wheels in anthracite gray finish, the Atlas Weekend Edition features the Urban Loader cargo box. When empty, the Urban Loader has a sleek, minimal appearance; when needed for hauling, it can expand to a 17.7 cubic-foot container. In addition, the Weekend Edition features base carrier bars for attaching accessories for skis, snowboards, kayaks or bikes. Reaching the roof cargo or helping children in and out is easy with practical side steps. A cargo divider provides a safe, pet-friendly barrier behind the second row, and passengers in the second row get an innovative universal tablet mount, for entertainment and games instead of "Are we there yet?" Tablets traveling onboard can use the Atlas available Media Control using Wi-Fi technology (Available for Android and iOS tablets and smartphones). More practical accessories finish out the Weekend Edition concept: window and hood deflectors, a heavy-duty trunk liner with seat-back coverage, a privacy cargo cover, all-weather rubber mats, splashguards, and wheel locks. Many of these accessories will be available from Volkswagen dealers in 2017.
