Car: 2019 Atlas V6 SE/w/Technology Price: $37,295 base price, $38,840 as tested. Fuel Economy: The Atlas, according to the federal government, gets 19 miles per gallon overall, 17 city and 24 highway.  The Atlas uses 5.3 gallons of gasoline to reach a hundred miles.  We found the Atlas to be something of a gas guzzler, however, with a good number of competitive SUVs getting a lot more out of the gasoline tank. Performance:  The Atlas may feel a bit sluggish off the line, but things pick up quickly, at least if you ordered the 276 horsepower 3.6liter V6. Handling is exactly what you would expect from VW--sporty, agile behavior. The Car:  For quite some time, VW has had a struggle with putting together its wagons and SUVs for the market, because of size, price, looks, tough competition and other factors. But this time around, VW has quite a competitive entry in the mid sized SUV segment in the Atlas.  It's perfect for families, and the quality of its interior suggests that you're driving something way more expensive than you are piloting in reality. Strong performance an acceleration, tons of cargo space, and the aforementioned interior all add up to a highly competitive product for the Atlas. Technology:
    You can buy your Atlas in a wide variety of versions, including S, SE, SE with Technology, SE  with Technology R-Line, SEL, SEL R-Line and finally, the SEL Premium. If you get the base model S, you get a The base S comes with a 235 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Any other version ou might purchase will have a 276 horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine (2 Front-wheel drive is standard, and V6 models can also be ordered with all-wheel drive (standard on the SEL Premium). Regardless of engine, every Atlas gets an eight-speed automatic transmission.
        Your base model S will have cloth seating, a bench seat in the second row, LED automatic headlights, dual-zone manual climate control, a rearview camera and cruise control. For 2019, Volkswagen makes forward collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert standard for all Atlas trim levels. The Atlas S also has a 6.5-inch touchscreen interface that offers Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity. We think you might like the SE better for everyday use. It comes with simulated-leather upholstery, push-button start, a power driver's seat, heated front seats, rear sunshades, three-zone automatic climate control, a larger 8-inch touchscreen interface, Car-Net subscription services, and the option of captain's chairs in the second row.  If you need a bit more, take a look at the SE with Technology, which was what we tested. In addition to getting all the other SE goodies, you will also get as standard equipment  remote engine start, a power rear liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and an active blind-spot monitor. The lavish life for Atlas owners begins with the SLE, which has as standard equipment,  panoramic sunroof, LED taillights, a power-adjustable front passenger's seat, a heated steering wheel, a hands-free rear liftgate, park distance control, an upgraded touchscreen display with navigation, and the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit. Digital Cockpit is a display that replaces the standard gauge cluster with a reconfigurable video screen that shows a wide variety of information beyond basic speed, fuel and temperature readings. Both the SE with Technology and the SEL are available with the R-Line version, which adds 20-inch wheels, unique bumpers, side skirts and badging, and some unique interior trim. The crème-de-le crème model is the SEL Premium. It adds standard all-wheel drive, automatic high-beam headlights, power-folding mirrors with puddle lamps, full leather seating, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, a 12-speaker Fender sound system, a 360-degree surround-view parking camera, and a parking assist system. The SEL Premium also gets its own unique 20-inch wheels, with 21-inchers as an available option.
Safety: Advanced Airbag Protection System, anti-slip brakes, anti slip regulation and engine brake assist, electronic stability control and electronic differential lock, Intelligent Crash Response system. rear view camera system and other items. Aesthetics/styling:   Nothing to write home about.  It's another, boxy uninteresting SUV. Sorry! Fortunately, the grille and the rear end have designs that say "Volkswagen." But other than that, you will not be able to distinguish it from countless other boxes from other box-minded car companies.  That's a pity.  Where are the interesting looking sedans? For most, in their graves.  The interior is quite well done, and is up to the high standards that Volkswagen has set for being one of the world's best automotive interior designers. And that alone makes the Atlas well worth it's price compared with other SUVs with far lesser-looking interiors, never mind its solidity, good performance, sound engineering and other sterling qualities. Warranty: 6 years/72,000 miles(whichever comes first) new vehicle limited warranty. ​ Price: $37,295 base price, $38,840 as tested.
