A Place for Everyone and Everything

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is able to fit seven people while ensuring that everyone has the necessary legroom that he or she needs. With its 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space, you’ll never need to worry if you’ll be able to fit a larger object into your vehicle again. Simply fold down the second and third rows and you’ll be good to go. The second row of the 2018 Atlas is also capable of having three child seats so nobody needs to sit in the way back all by themselves. Speaking of the back, getting into the third row of a vehicle has never been easier than it is with the 2018 Atlas. All you need to do give a little pull and push and the second-row seat will fold up. You can even do it with just one hand!

Technology Features of the 2018 Atlas

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has a digital cockpit feature that will remove all of the clutter that used to live on your dashboard. Instead, the 12.3-inch screen will give you a high-resolution digital display of whatever you want to see. Check your navigation system to make sure you’re going the right way, take a look at your fuel economy, and even store up to four different driver profiles so you don’t need to spend time trying to get your seat into the perfect spot after someone else has moved it. The 2018 Atlas also allows you to bring your favorite apps with you with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. To go along with these, and the many other technological features, the 2018 Atlas also has many different safety features to keep your peace of mind.


With its high-strength steel exterior body, the Atlas will be there to take a punch or two for you, although we hope it never has to. A safety cage paired with front and rear crumple zones will help to absorb any potential crash energy while the safety cage redirects the energy away from everyone inside. The available Front Assist feature uses a radar sensor in the front of the vehicle to help alert you if there are any pedestrians or other cars in your path. It can also apply the brakes if it ever needs to. The Lane Assist system monitors the position of your Atlas, and can warn you when you begin to drift out of your lane without using your turn signal. There is also an available Blind Spot Monitor system that alerts you when there is anything in your blind spot so you’re never taken by surprise when you try to switch lanes.

While these are just a few of the many features of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, we know that they are enough to fall in love with. If you would like to be one of the first people to test drive the 2018 Atlas, we encourage you to contact us here at Stevens Creek Volkswagen in San Jose.
