After getting its world premiere last fall, the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas 7-passenger SUV wowed crowds at North American auto shows this past winter and spring. Assembled at the German manufacturer’s American plant in Tennessee alongside the Passat, the Atlas is the largest SUV ever produced by VW in the United States.
Just in the past few days, the Atlas has been made available at Canadian Volkswagen dealerships, and is being offered in seven different exterior colours. A 2.0L, 4-cylinder TSI engine delivering 235 hp and a 3.6L FSI V6 producing 276 hp are available in the Trendline ($35,690) and Comfortline ($39,690) versions, while only the latter is offered in the top-end Highline edition ($48,990).
