When will the VW Atlas be available?

Every once in a while, an automaker releases a new vehicle, but when Volkswagen does it, they do it with style. Customers are expecting a lot from the VW Atlas, and we know it will deliver. If you are not sure what this new model is, or if you simply want to know when will the VW Atlas be available, we have your answers right here.

Is the Volkswagen Atlas an SUV?

Not only is the Volkswagen Atlas an SUV, but it will have a third row. In fact, the Atlas is set to be the largest SUV ever sold by VW in the United States. The Atlas joins the other two VW SUVs in the lineup with the Touareg and the Tiguan.

The Atlas is even more revolutionary than it seems. It is based on an entirely new platform, which will also make its way into the Tiguan for the 2018 model year, marking a big change for the entry level VW SUV.
