The car will be presented to the general public at the Chicago Motor Show in 2020.

On the eve of the United States held a closed presentation of the updated crossover Volkswagen Atlas. The car is the largest in the lineup of crossovers of the brand, and the updated version will add another 76 mm in length. Representatives of the brand said that the increase in length is associated with the new technology of the front bumper, which increases safety for pedestrians. The novelty received a significantly updated front end – in addition to the bumper, the changes affected the design of the navigation lights and the grille.

Inside the car, we note a new steering wheel in a sports style, as well as a new 8-inch screen of the multimedia complex.

 In the advanced R-Line configuration, the interior equipment looks richer through the use of high quality materials. Among the highlights is the ability to wirelessly charge a smartphone. The manufacturer did not change the engine range – it consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with a return of 235 hp, as well as a 3.6-liter engine with a capacity of 276 hp. Now, the all-wheel drive system also relies on the basic version of the engine.

┬áIn terms of security systems, the new Atlas has received a number of innovations. He has access to the proprietary Traffic Jam Assist system, which includes adaptive cruise control and a lane control system. Also, the car was “taught” the dynamic recognition of road signs. The debut of the updated Volkswagen Atlas will take place at the Chicago Motor Show in 2020, and it will go on sale in May next year.
