2021 Volkswagen Atlas for Sale in West Warwick, RI
Not many three-row, eight-passenger vehicles are able to match the Volkswagen Atlas in terms of spaciousness, practicality, and value. For the upcoming 2021 model year, VW ups the ante with a minor refresh on this popular SUV. This time around, it comes with new front and rear fascias (increasing its length by nearly 3 inches), a new three-bar grille, and revised LED headlights. R-Line models flaunt special badging, a unique body kit, and either 20- or 21-inch rims. Inside the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas, there’s a new steering wheel, upgraded stitching on the seats, and a new infotainment touchscreen that’s compatible with the latest VW Car-Net smartphone application. To top it off, every 2021 Volkswagen Atlas – including the ones with the base four-cylinder engine – will now be eligible for all-wheel drive.
Trims and Powertrain
There are eight trim levels to choose from with the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas: the S, SE, SE with Technology, SE with Technology R-Line, SEL, SEL R-Line, SEL Premium, and SEL Premium R-Line. The base engine powering the S and SE, front-wheel drive SE with Technology, and all-wheel drive SEL and SEL Premium is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 235 hp. All other models receive a 3.6-liter V6 that cranks out 276 hp. Front-wheel drive is standard across the board, but all-wheel drive is optional.
