Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Volkswagen Atlas

Kimberly Smith
Automotive Editor - February 4, 2020
  • 2020 Atlas is here; 2019s still available
  • Cashback: Unadvertised discounts available
  • Finance: From 1.9% APR for 60 months
  • Lease: From $319 per month for 39 months

2020s arriving:

The 2019 Atlas tends to be well-stocked, so you’ll likely have several to choose from at any one dealership.

These are also now being joined by the 2020 Atlas, which is mostly a carryover, although it does include a new two-row variant called the Atlas Cross Sport, which is expected out this spring and will offer a more sloped roofline for a sportier look.

Current offers are regional and available through March 2, 2020. Our examples are based on those for Western States.

Extra credit:

You won’t see it advertised, but dealers are being incentivized to discount in-stock inventory by as much as $4,000 for 2019 V6 SEL trims, or $1,750 to $4,000 for other 2019 trims. For 2020 models, the amount is $2,000 regardless of trim.

These discounts aren’t available in connection with the promotional financing rates featured below, though there’s a similar dealer financing bonus valued at up to $3,000 that you can try for if you want to take advantage of those rates. Neither dealer incentive is automatic, so it’s up to you to make sure you get that deal.

In addition, a $500 bonus is available for qualified military and first responders, and new college graduates (i.e. graduated in the past 24 months) with proof of permanent, full-time income are eligible to receive a $500 credit on new financing or lease contracts signed with Volkswagen Credit.

Get 1.9% APR:

Well-qualified shoppers can finance a new 2019 or 2020 Atlas from 1.9% APR for up to 60 months.

There's also room to negotiate up to $3,000 for 2019 V6 SEL trims, or $1,750 to $3,000 for other 2019 trims. That’s the amount dealers are being incentivized by the manufacturer for new financing, but they’re not required to pass those savings onto you.

For all 2020 models, the dealer bonus is $1,000.

Similarly, if you’re shopping in an area without access to these low rates, be sure to be a strong negotiator on price because dealers in those regions have been authorized to discount their Atlas inventories instead.

Lease special:

Leasing a 2019 Atlas SE 2.0T starts at $319 per month for 39 months with $3,999 due at signing. The offer comes with an allowance of 10,000 miles per year but is not a good value.

Outside of Western states, leases tend to be around $10-20/month more expensive. Opting for all-wheel drive often adds about $30-40/month in most cases regardless of where you live.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - August 15, 2019

Model Preview

The Volkswagen Atlas was an all-new three-row crossover in 2018, and the only changes it saw in 2019 were a few new trim levels. The 2020 VW Atlas will be mostly a carryover model, but it will gain a few new pieces of tech and feature shuffling within its seven trim levels.

In terms of design, the 2020 VW Atlas will hit showrooms as a virtual twin to the current model. With a keen eye, buyers can catch a few updates, including new standard 20-inch wheels on all SE w/ Technology and higher trims and 21-inch wheels on the SEL Premium trim.

Inside, the Atlas’ roomy cabin will carry over in terms of its design. There will, however, be some new tech sprinkled in, including the next-generation Car-Net infotainment system and standard in-car Wi-Fi.

On top of the key changes mentioned above, the 2020 VW Atlas will see some feature shifting in the SE w/ Technology R-Line trim, which will now have standard front and rear parking sensors and a power liftgate.

2019 Volkswagen Atlas

The 2020 VW Atlas will retain its standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pushes 235 horsepower through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Optionally, buyers will be able to get a 276-hp 3.6-liter V6 engine that will also pair to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive will come standard, but the V6-equipped Atlas will have optional all-wheel drive.

The VW Atlas nailed every IIHS crash test with “Good” ratings and aced the front-crash prevention test with a “Superior” rating from its standard automatic emergency braking system. That said, it missed out on being an IIHS Top Safety Pick due to the pesky headlight test, which netted it “Marginal” and “Poor” ratings. With no changes coming to any of its safety equipment, we expect the 2020 VW Atlas to carry the same ratings.

>The 2020 VW Atlas will battle the Chevrolet Traverse, Honda Pilot, and Nissan Pathfinder.
