Trims, Powertrains, and Fuel Economy

The ‘23 Atlas Cross Sport is a five-passenger crossover that VW presents in these trim levels: SE, SE with Technology, SEL, SEL R-Line Black, and SEL Premium R-Line. Most of those are set up with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 235 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The SEL Premium R-Line, however, gets a more potent 3.6-liter V6 making 276 hp and 266 lb.-ft. of torque; this engine is optional for the SE with Technology, SEL, and SEL R-Line Black. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the rule for both engines, and while front-wheel drive is the default in the SE and SE with Technology, all-wheel drive (which is standard in the remaining trims) is available. As determined by the EPA, the 2023 Atlas Cross Sport with FWD and the 2.0-liter engine returns an estimated 21 mpg around town and 25 mpg on the highway. With AWD, it achieves 20 city/24 highway. Regardless of the drivetrain, Atlas Cross Sports with the V6 achieve 18 city/24 highway.

Headlining Equipment

The SE comes with heated side mirrors, 18-inch wheels, keyless entry, heated front seats with driver power adjustments, synthetic leather upholstery (seats and steering wheel), two USB-C ports, and an 8-inch digital gauge cluster (Digital Cockpit). The SE with Technology welcomes a better slate of features, including a hands-free liftgate, remote start, 20-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, three extra USB-C ports, a 10.25-inch configurable digital gauge cluster (Digital Cockpit Pro), and a wireless phone charger.

The SEL is appointed with an adaptive front lighting system, heated washer nozzles, a reverse gear tilt-down passenger-side mirror, roof rails, a panoramic sunroof, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, position memory for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, ambient interior lighting, a heated steering wheel, and a drive mode selector (Snow, On-Road, Off-Road, and Off-Road Custom). The standout SEL R-Line Black gets exclusive black exterior styling elements and a sportier steering wheel, while the SEL Premium R-Line shows off 21-inch wheels, power-folding side mirrors, a trailer hitch, authentic leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and heated second-row outboard seats.

Advanced Safety Systems

VW’s IQ.Drive suite is standard in the ‘23 Atlas Cross Sport, with the higher trims receiving additional technologies. The SE has forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking (Front Assist) and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. At the SE with Technology level, front and rear parking sensors (Park Distance Control) and adaptive cruise control are added. The SEL and higher are sweetened with a dynamic road sign display, automatic high beams (Light Assist), a semi-automated driving system (Travel Assist), lane departure warning with steering assist (Lane Assist), and driver attention warning (Emergency Assist). The SEL Premium R-Line gets an overhead camera system and automatic parking assist (Park Assist).

Multimedia and Connectivity

When it comes to infotainment, the ‘23 Atlas Cross Sport makes a real impression. The SE gets a sleek 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (App-Connect) and Bluetooth hands-free audio streaming, while the SE with Technology moves up to an 8-inch touchscreen with HD and satellite radio (SiriusXM) and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SEL and above have navigation installed, and if you’re interested in an elevated auditory experience, take note that the range-topping SEL Premium R-Line boasts a premium Fender sound system with a subwoofer.
