In the status of the prototype, the Volkswagen novelty will not be delayed for a long time: the model will be sent to the series next year, it will be produced at a factory in the American Chattanooga, which today produces a three-row Atlas. The main market for the novelty will be the United States.
The five-seater Atlas Cross Sport received a coupe-like body, also it has a different front design and other lights. The radiator grille and the brand emblem have LED backlighting. The car stands on 22-inch wheels. In the interior under the touchscreen of the multimedia system, a touch-sensitive console appeared, with which you can control, for example, the climate control settings, turn on / off the seat heating.
Like the commodity Atlas, the concept is built on the MQB platform. The length of the prototype is 4,846 mm, which is 190 mm smaller than the seven-seater serial SUV, the width is 2,029 mm (+40 mm compared to the three-row Atlas), the height is 1,734 mm (-44 mm). The wheelbase for both cars is the same – 2,979 mm.
VW Atlas Cross Sport is equipped with a hybrid installation, which included 276-hp gasoline VR6 3.6 (a motor is also available in the seven-seater Atlas), a pair of electric motors and a lithium-ion battery of 18 kWh capacity (it was placed in the central tunnel). The battery can be charged from the mains. The cumulative impact of the all-wheel drive concept is 359 hp (670 Nm). From the place to 96 km / h the prototype accelerates in 5.4 seconds, the maximum speed – 209 km / h. Only on electric power Atlas Cross Sport can pass about 42 kilometers.
In addition, for a five-seat crossover, a hybrid installation is provided without the possibility of recharging: these are the same motors, but their combined power is 310 hp, and the battery capacity is only 2 kWh.
