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.

2022 Volkswagen Atlas: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - August 16, 2021

Model Preview

The Volkswagen Atlas arrived in 2018, giving the German brand a more rugged-looking crossover to complement its existing lineup. As we head into the 2022 model year, the Atlas will be mostly a carryover model, save for some trim level and equipment changes.

On the outside, the 2022 Volkswagen Atlas will continue with the same upright look it’s had since its 2018 launch. This look nicely contrasts the brand’s more bubbly Tiguan and Taos models, giving buyers a traditional SUV design. The only changes to the 2022 Atlas’ exterior will be new machined 20-inch wheels on the SEL trim, and black 20-inch wheels and black R-Line elements on the SEL R-Line Black trim.

Inside, the Atlas is everything Volkswagen is known for: simple, functional, and clean. The dash is relatively featureless but has just enough styling to avoid being bland, while a flat-bottom steering wheel adds a little pizzaz to the straight-edge styling. We expect this styling to continue in the 2022 Atlas. That said, there will be a few feature updates, including a standard 8-inch digital gauge cluster on the SE trim and third-row USB-C ports on the SE w/ Technology trim.


Under its hood, the 2022 Atlas will continue with the same two engine options, starting with its standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that punches out 235 horsepower. Optionally, buyers will be able to get a 3.6-liter V6 with 276 hp.

Both engines currently pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. We expect this to remain the same in the 2022 Atlas.

In IIHS testing, the current Atlas just missed being a Top Safety Pick due to its “Marginal” standard headlights, but it received “Good” ratings in all crash tests. Standard safety gear includes automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitors, but buyers can add adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and a surround-view camera system. We expect the safety ratings and features to remain the same in the 2022 Atlas.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date yet for the 2022 Atlas, but it should arrive soon.

The 2022 Atlas will eliminate two trim levels, leaving just six trims: SE, SE w/ Technology, SEL, SEL R-Line, SEL R-Line Black, and SEL Premium R-Line.

Full 2022 Atlas pricing details aren’t available yet, but the lineup will start from $34,670 (destination fees included). If you want the V6 engine, that lineup will start from $40,590.

This midsize crossover will compete with the Honda Pilot, Chevy Traverse, and Ford Explorer.
