The largest Volkswagen ever assembled and sold in America is almost here. The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas definitely lives up to its name as it carries the Volkswagen brand into the family SUV segment. The seven-passenger Atlas will offer class-competitive levels of technology and spaciousness while continuing the Volkswagen tradition of creating vehicles with unmatched driving dynamics. And while a manufacturer’s suggested retail price has not yet been announced, Volkswagen has promised the 2018 Atlas will be sold at a price aimed at drawing customers’ attention away from other family SUVs. Put a different way – it’s going to be affordable for today’s families. So, while we wait, let’s check out all we know about the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas release date and its power and safety features.
