Volkswagen Canada has announced pricing and details for the 2024 Volkswagen Atlas and its little brother the 2024 Atlas Cross Sport. The Atlas SUV gets an updated interior and a new 2.0L turbo engine to replace the old 4-cylinder.
The new engine develops 269 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. VW says it’s about as powerful as the old VR6 but offers more torque and better fuel economy than the outgoing engine. Volkswagen's 8-speed automatic transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system are standard across the model range.
The new Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport models are still designed on the same foundation, but offer an upgraded spacious interior for 2024. Premium materials, such as leatherette, dress the dashboard and centre console. The door trim also integrates with the dashboard.
Ambient lighting with 30 colour options and backlit dashboard decor brighten up the interior.
Premium models include quilted leather seats with diamond dot pattern, heated steering wheel with paddle shifters, ventilated front seats and a height-adjustable passenger seat. Three-zone automatic climate control is now standard.
