2022 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport for Sale in West Warwick, RI
The Atlas Cross Sport joined the three-row Atlas as a more compact yet just as practical and capable SUV in the VW lineup. With a coupe-inspired body style, two rows of seating, and plenty of cargo space, it’s gotten the attention of outdoorsy types, commuters with active lifestyles, and singles as well as families. For model year 2022, the trim lineup has been streamlined to five (down from eight), and the new entry-level trim (the SE) now gets Volkswagen Digital Cockpit as standard equipment. Also, the SE with Technology trim with the V6 engine now gets a standard trailer hitch, and the SEL comes with all-wheel drive and 20-inch wheels.
Mechanical Specs and Towing
The trim lineup from base to most loaded is SE, SE with Technology, SEL, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium R-Line. Every ’22 Atlas Cross Sport except for the SEL Premium R-Line gets the standard powertrain, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (235 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The SEL Premium R-Line gets a power boost with its 3.6-liter V6 (276 hp and 266 lb.-ft. of torque), which is optional for all of the other trims except the SE.
Front-wheel drive is standard on the SE and SE with Technology, which are eligible for the 4Motion all-wheel drive that the other trims get standard. The four-cylinder FWD Atlas Cross Sports fulfill an EPA-rated 21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway; the AWD trims achieve 20 city/24 highway. The fuel economy rating for the V6 versions is 18 city/24 highway regardless of drivetrain. If you want to pull a trailer, note that the ’22 Atlas Cross Sport has a 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity.
Standard Features and Options
The base SE is outfitted well, starting with its sophisticated lighting system featuring automatic LED headlights with a Coming/Leaving Home feature and low-speed corner illumination. It also has heated side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, silver roof rails, keyless entry, and 18-inch wheels. The SE with Technology makes life easier with remote start and a hands-free liftgate, and its wheels are increased to 20-inchers. The additions to the SEL are adaptive LED performance headlights, a panoramic sunroof, heated windshield washer nozzles, and exterior mirrors with position memory. The SEL R-Line shows off dark graphite wheels plus bumpers and badging that are unique to the trim. The SEL Premium R-Line has those R-Line elements as well, along with 21-inch two-tone wheels and power-folding side mirrors.
The SE has a power-adjustable driver’s seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, simulated leather upholstery, three 12-volt power outlets, two USB-C ports, push-button start, and VW Digital Cockpit. Its infotainment system consists of a 6.5-inch touchscreen Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a basic sound system. App-Connect is also standard, as is VW Car-Net, a remote services system that lets you access certain controls related to your vehicle directly from your smartphone.
The SE with Technology has a 115-volt power outlet, dual-zone automatic climate control, three additional USB-C ports, and wireless smartphone charging. The infotainment system is enhanced with an 8-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The SEL and SEL R-Line are more luxurious with their ambient interior lighting, heated steering wheel, driver’s seat memory, integrated navigation, and Digital Cockpit Pro (which is not only larger than the basic Digital Cockpit setup but is also customizable). The top-end SEL Premium R-Line receives ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, and genuine leather upholstery. Its multimedia setup is ramped up with a premium Fender sound system.
Safety and Technology
The IQ.Drive suite of driver-assist technologies comes standard on each trim, although in configurations that grow as the trim level rises. The SE gets a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. The SE with Technology earns its name with more of these state-of-the-art features – adaptive cruise control and park distance control with maneuver braking – while the SEL and SEL R-Line are bolstered with a dynamic road sign display, automatic high beams, travel assist, lane assist, and emergency assist. As the top of the line Atlas Cross Sport, the SEL Premium R-Line comes with an overhead view camera system and park assist.
