In the family of three-row crossovers, there are countless models coming from different automaking brands, among which one is the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas. It looks more like an SUV than a crossover with loads of attractive features offered through its current lineup models.
The 2021 model year edition of Volkswagen Atlas look refreshed after all the necessary changes made to its age-old design. At the showroom complex of the Seaside Volkswagen dealership, we got the opportunity to explore each and every trim model of the 2021 edition of Volkswagen Atlas, wherein the list of standard and optional features appeared to be worth exploring. We were first strongly impressed by the new 2021 models of Volkswagen Atlas that now wore a much prettier exterior styling with some newly added features inside to help increase its overall market value in terms of comfort, convenience and of course a streamlined performance.
Features Added for the 2021 Model Year Edition
The year 2021 has brought the Volkswagen Atlas model series not only a new face but also several other valuable qualities that helped this three-row crossover transform into a more desirable model for the buyers. it was almost like a makeover done overnight where the Atlas models from Volkswagen transcended from a simple generic family SUV into a handsome looking, expert roadster.
The changes made to the design sees a new front grille that looks more prominent because of the new Volkswagen logo planted on it and is rounded up with the gorgeous looking well-integrated headlights. The front and rear bumpers get a new shape as well adding an extra 2.4 inches to the overall length of the model.
Inside, all the cabins of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas see a change in the instrument controls while the steering wheel too wears a modern outfit.
For better convenience to stay connected to the digital world, Volkswagen offers a wireless charging pad located just below the center stack of instruments. But it is still only offered as an available feature, and not a standard one.
Drive Assist Features
The 2021 Atlas now gets stronger in terms of safety measures that also help in the act of driving for the one who sits behind the wheels. The list of enhanced safety and driver assistance features include technologies like adaptive cruise control, to avoid collisions during a traffic release. On the other hand, the engines receive stop-and-go capability.
The lane-assist feature works in tune with a 360-degree camera that alerts the driver of the presence and positions of other vehicles that can come in the way, while changing the lane. It also helps the in centering the vehicle in its original drive lane. Additionally, a traffic-sign recognition system joins the list of safety features along with other advanced technologies like automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert, all that are offered on the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas models as standard equipment, assured the staff member who attended us throughout our stay at the premise of the Volkswagen dealer Salinas showroom.
