Award-Winning Performance Make the VW Atlas a Must-See Seven Passenger SUV

San Francisco area buyers looking for a three-row SUV need to look no further than the Volkswagen Atlas. For two years in a row, this seven-passenger family vehicle has been named the Best Large Utility Vehicle by MotorWeek, and with its combination of capability and comfort, it comes as no surprise.

Power and capability

When it comes to peak performance, the Atlas is running on all cylinders. The exact number of cylinders is up to you, as the base model is available with either a four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 235 horsepower, while all other options offer a 276-horsepower naturally-aspirated V6 capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds.

On all V6 models, Sonoma County drivers will have the 4MOTION® all-wheel drive system available to them for even more capability, and every model of the Atlas is mated with an eight-speed automatic gearbox for versatile performance.


When it comes to family SUVs, one of the most important things for San Rafael buyers to consider is interior space. This SUV’s seven-passenger capacity has been well noted, but it also boasts 96.8 cubic-feet of cargo space with the second- and third-row seats folded down. That’s excellent versatility for handling whatever cargo Oakland drivers need to carry.

To keep everyone comfortable, available Climatronic® three-zone automatic climate control lets everyone on-board be comfortable, even if they can’t agree on how to get there. Other available interior features are:

  • First- and second-row heated leather seats
  • Front and Rear USB ports
  • Overhead camera view
  • Volkswagen Digital Cockpit
  • Eight-inch infotainment display


When it comes to keeping your family safe on the road, the Atlas offers a wide range of advanced technologies to help Sonoma County drivers stay aware and in-control of every situation.

On the road, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and autonomous emergency braking all work to alert Marin County drivers of hazards around them, and will apply the brakes if an emergency situation is detected in front of the vehicle.

In tight situations such as parking lots, a rear traffic alert and park distance control features help you keep track of objects in your immediate vicinity so you can park and reverse with the confidence that you won’t accidentally strike a nearby object or vehicle.
