Volkswagen Atlas MPG and Power

The new VW Atlas can appeal to families whether they’re looking for generous power as standard or the more thrilling performance that comes with an available V6. Here’s how output and efficiency specs compare between the vehicle’s two engines:

  • 2.0L Turbo Four-Cylinder: Delivers up to 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque while achieving up to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
  • 3.6L V6: Delivers up to 267 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque while achieving up to an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

Volkswagen Atlas Performance Features

Edmunds.com comments that the 2019 VW Atlas, “feels light, quick and precise, but it also manages to avoid feeling disconnected like so many overboosted steering systems.” That kind of responsive ride is owed to several high-end performance features, with highlights including:

  • 8-Speed Automatic Transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport Mode: Having eight transmission speeds ensures pitch perfect efficiency and performance whether cruising at speed on the highway between Astoria and Flushing or crawling through Bayside traffic.
  • 4MOTION® with Active Control: The turn of a dial lets you switch between four different all-wheel-drive modes to adapt around changing weather and road conditions for maximum stability and dependable traction. Drive modes include Dry, Rainy, Snowy, and Rough.

When you want to tow trailers, boats, or ATVs, a properly equipped VW Atlas will live up to its name by towing up to 5,000 lbs.
