Read more here.The marketing hype train never stops over at Volkswagen with the announcement of the seven-seat Volkswagen Atlas. Hot off the heels of Paris Motor Show, and with new Golf models to be unveiled in November, we've now got a new car to talk about. Unfortunately, the Atlas won't be available in the UK as this is a USA-only car that is "fully tailored to American needs". Sitting between the Tiguan and Touareg, Hinrich J. Woebcken, Volkswagen CEO of North American Region said, "This is the biggest and boldest Volkswagen we have ever built in the United States, delivering the distinctive design and craftsmanship we're known for, now with room for seven." Inside, the Atlas makes maximum use of its dimensions to offer space for seven adults and their luggage. The third row can be easily reached by an innovative folding seat solution. Clear, driver-centric displays enhance the driving experience. In addition, the optional Active Info Display (called the "Volkswagen Digital Cockpit" in the USA) allows drivers extensive options for configuring the display. The new Volkswagen Atlas arrives with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder TSI turbo charging (238 PS) or a 3.6-litre VR6 engine (280 PS). Both engines route power through an eight-speed transmission. We can only hope that the VW Atlas will come to the UK in the future.
