2020 Volkswagen Atlas for Sale in West Warwick, RI
With three rows of seating, plenty of space, and ample power, the six- or seven-passenger 2020 Volkswagen Atlas is the dream vehicle for a lot of people. Since this model debuted so recently (in 2018), nothing major has changed for this model year. There’s been some expansion of the technology features, though: VW Car-Net is now standard on all trims along with an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, and the SE with Technology R-Line receives a foot-activated liftgate and rear parking sensors.
Trims and Powertrain
Just as it did last year, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas comes in these trim levels: S, SE, SE with Technology, SE with Technology R-Line, SEL, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium. The S, SE, SE with Technology, and SEL get a standard powertrain made up of a 235 horsepower (258 lb.-ft. of torque) turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. A 3.6-liter V6 (276 hp and 266 lb.-ft. of torque) with 4MOTION all-wheel drive and the same eight-speed automatic is the available upgrade for those trims, but that larger engine comes standard on the SEL Premium, as does 4MOTION. When it’s properly equipped with the V6, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
Comfort and Convenience
The base S is supplied with roof rails, heated side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, automatic LED headlights, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 60/40 split-folding second-row bench seat, and a 50/50 split-folding third row seat. Opting for the SE will let you enjoy features like heated windshield washer nozzles, fog lights, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry with push-button ignition, simulated-leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. The SEL with Technology comes with a remote liftgate, remote start, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Second-row captain’s chairs and a panoramic sunroof are available with this trim.
The SEL gets the panoramic sunroof, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, a hands-free liftgate, and memory functions for the outside mirrors and driver’s seat. Both the SE with Technology and the SEL are available with the R-Line upgrade, which yields the hands-free liftgate and a few unique exterior elements, including special alloy wheels and stainless-steel pedal caps. The topmost trim, the SEL Premium, is loaded with genuine leather seating, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, and an around-view camera system.
Safety and Technology
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas was awarded a five-star safety rating. For even more confidence on the road, the S and SE get forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. The SE with Technology adds adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist, while the SEL is upgraded with front and rear parking sensors. The SEL Premium rounds out the safety tech with automatic parking assist.
The S comes with a generous slate of technology. The base infotainment system has a 6.5-inch central screen, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, a USB data port, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The SE and SE with Technology each get two USB data ports, two rear USB charging ports, an 8-inch touchscreen, HD radio, and satellite radio. With the SEL, integrated navigation is provided, and the SEL Premium receives a premium 12-speaker Fender audio system.
