2018 Volkswagen Atlas near Los Angeles CA

In recent years we’ve seen Volkswagen release updated editions and trims of its most famous model lines, but it’s a rare sight to see the iconic manufacturer introduce a totally new nameplate outright. That’s exactly what happened late last year, and we can announce that the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is set to arrive on dealership lots (including ours in Los Angeles CA) by springtime! The full-size SUV, named after the legendary Greek titan who lifted the world on his shoulders, is set to usher in a new era of power and strength across the entire VW family.

In anticipation of the Atlas’s release, our team here at  Winn VW Woodland Hills Volkswagen wants to help you learn as much as possible about its features and capabilities. Let’s jump right in and see what Volkswagen’s newest addition to the family can do for you and yours! So folks if you are in the market for a 2018 Atlas let Winn VW Woodland Hills make that deal for you. We are located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley near the communities of Encino, Tarzana, Pacoima, Reseda, West Hills, Canoga Park and lets not forget Topanga and Malibu.

Engine Options

With the Atlas’s bigger size and weight comes a need for more power under the hood, something that is readily available to you as a driver. You have the choice of two engines, either a 2.0-liter turbocharged Inline 4 or a 3.6-liter VR6 V6. These engines can produce plenty of punch: up to 238 and 279 horsepower respectively!



Of course, the new Atlas (and its available Weekend Edition) is being built to be able to handle life both on and off the road. Its 8-speed automatic transmission helps you read and react to all conditions, and 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive available with the VR6 engine package provides torque to all the right wheels, greatly increasing your grip on the pavement!



The 2018 Atlas comes with pure refinement inside and out. To accommodate even more passengers than ever before inside, the athletic and confident exterior gives way to a third row of seating inside, allowing up to seven passengers to fit comfortably! In turn, once the 2018 Atlas is released its sure to be endearing to all who step inside.

Interior features of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
