Although still not even in the factory, 2020 Volkswagen Atlas should be released soon. However, it is not a much-changed model, since the last year version was fully redesigned. Do not forget that Atlas was made as a reasonable alternative to Tiguan, and it surely is.

However, there are so many similarities between those two models, that buyers actually have no many details to see in the models that will help in choosing between those two models. We are sure that the model will be slightly changed from the last year version. Nothing more has been said so far.

Likes:

  • The model is very modern and attractive.
  • There is a great comfortable cabin inside of the car.

Dislikes:

  • The model is not much unique and design looks too much like other vehicles in the class.
  • There is only one engine in the offer.
 

Exterior

2020 Volkswagen Atlas comes as slightly changed last year model. On the other hand, there are no many differences between Atlas and Tiguan. It means that you will be able to see the same edges, lines, and decoration, and the main change is actually in size and small details. The model offers the same appearance.

It is made of steel, with sharp edges and lines, boxy, but with interesting soft and rounded lines on the sides. The rear end is rounded, with curved truck door and almost flat roof. Taillights have an interesting irregular shape, with a chromatic line across the trunk door. We could find similarities with the Ford Explorer in details, but also with Honda Pilot.

Interior

The cabin is made for seven passengers, with availability for adult persons even in the third row. In the center of the dashboard stands 6.5-inch touchscreen and commands below it.

Engine

The engine provides 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. You will recognize the same model as on Toyota Highlander. The basic model comes as a front-wheel driving system.
