Luxurious Interior Fit for Royalty
The spacious interior of the 2024 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport is a sight to behold. Premium materials and elegant ambient lighting give off an upscale vibe that exudes luxury. Leatherette-trimmed soft-touch dash and center console add a refined touch to the front row.
You can even choose from 30 different ambient lighting color choices to create a personalized environment. Top-of-the-range models even feature quilted leather seats with a diamond pattern, perfect for those who want to travel in style.
But that’s not all. Comfort features have been upgraded too. Stay warm in winter with a heated steering wheel with shift paddles and ventilated front seats, both now standard. The center console has also been redesigned with a storage cubby underneath, giving you more space for your belongings.
With Climatronic automatic climate control and Voice Control, you’ll feel like you’re in complete control of your environment.
Enhanced Technology for a Connected Experience
The 2024 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport offer a more connected experience with enhanced technology. The centerpiece of the redesigned cockpit is a 12-inch floating infotainment display, while the fully configurable Volkswagen Digital Cockpit Pro gives drivers a wealth of information at their fingertips.
You can connect your devices with ease, thanks to standard wireless App-Connect, wireless charging, and six USB-C ports (eight available) with 45-watt fast charging.
But that’s not all. IQ.DRIVE driver assistance technology, featuring hands-on semi-automatic capability, is now standard, making driving easier and safer. Lane centering and a capacitive steering wheel make driving on the highway a breeze, while IQ.DRIVE helps alert you to surprise obstacles around town.
And with a head-up display and predictive Adaptive Cruise Control available, you’ll feel like you’re driving a car from the future.
Stylish Front and Rear Treatments
The 2024 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport has received a new front-end design, with a wide chrome four-bar grille framed by LED headlights that feature the new standard Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS). On all but the base trims, the Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) wrap around the headlights and continue into an illuminated lightbar that sits atop an illuminated VW logo.
The new front fascia with integrated air intakes completes the front-end treatment, making the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport look sportier and more dynamic.
At the rear, both models add a larger spoiler that lengthens the overall roofline of the vehicles and gives them a sleeker side profile. All but the base trims mirror the front lighting signature in the rear with an illuminated lightbar and VW logo sitting between the LED taillights. Atlas Cross Sport models add a more aggressive rear diffuser than the previous generation, further differentiating the two models.
New Powertrain for Improved Performance and Fuel Economy
For 2024, the Atlas family will be powered solely by a four-cylinder turbocharged and direct-injection TSI engine with 269 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The new engine provides similar power to the outgoing VR6, but with a bump in torque and better fuel economy. The towing capacity stays at 5,000 pounds.
Front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox are standard; all models may be ordered with Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive technology.
Enhanced Safety Features
In addition to IQ.DRIVE driver assistance technology, the 2024 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport also come with a variety of other safety features to ensure the safety of drivers and passengers alike. These include automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control, among others.
With these advanced safety features, drivers can feel confident and secure on the road, no matter where their travels take them.
