by Staff
Find everything you need to know about the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport here, along with expert reviews, specs, photos, videos and more.

An all-new Atlas has been introduced, full of new technology and a new engine. Few other car-based three-row SUVs offer a third-row seat that’s as useable as in the Atlas.

For now, power comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.


Spacious interior, user-friendly features, AWD available across the lineup


Unexceptional powertrains, vague steering, upper trims are expensive

Bottom Line

The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport ought to appeal to certain tech-minded buyers, or those who appreciate German engineering.

The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport underwent a large overhaul for the 2024 model year. Not quite a new generation of the big SUV, the update is more than just a few new styling updates.

Always a good combination of space, utility, and style, the refresh has addressed a few key areas. These aren’t necessarily weaknesses of the old model, but areas that could benefit from an improvement to better match the competition.

None of these are more prominent, or noticeable, than the three we have listed below.

2024 Volkswagen Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport Review: First Drive

The 2024 Volkswagen Atlas family is big in more ways than one.

The largest VW on offer here in North America has been a sales hit, shifting almost half a million units in the US alone since its 2018 intro. (The Cross Sport arrived two years later.) It's also something of a profit machine for the brand, the sort of made-in-America success story the brand could use in a post-Dieselgate world.

Needless to say then, the 2024 edition does not mess with success. Call it optimization, with a simplified engine lineup, more standard features, and tweaked styling to keep the Atlas looking fresh. We headed to upstate New York to get to know both the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport, and figure out where they fall in their respective segments.

    VW is in desperate need of a better powertrain the V6 is not only anemic but also lousy on gas and is over 20 years old in design. A new engine and the Atlas would be a class winner

    VW should be ashamed of themselves using a 25 year old V6 engine as there premium powerplant. . Poor fuel economy and a lack of torque really undermine the rest of a otherwise great vehicle. Why doesn't VW dip into the Audi parts bin and use there fantastic 6 cylinder engine in the Atlas?
