What Is the 2022 Volkswagen Atlas?
The three-row Atlas is Volkswagen’s largest SUV, positioned above the compact Tiguan in VW’s lineup. If you don’t need a third row but like the Atlas’ size otherwise, VW also sells a two-row Atlas Cross Sport with seating for five and sleeker styling.

Power comes from a standard 235-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 276-hp, 3.6-liter V-6. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and front- and all-wheel-drive models are available. Rivals include the Honda Pilot, Kia Telluride and Mazda CX-9.

The Atlas offers 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind its second row and 14 cubic feet behind its third row, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements. The Atlas Cross Sport, meanwhile, has 20.7 cubic feet of space behind its backseat. You can see how both scored in our Car Seat Checks here.

Should I Buy the 2022 Volkswagen Atlas?
The Atlas is an excellent choice for SUV shoppers who need a vehicle that can haul lots of people, cargo or a combination of both. Other highlights include a comfortable ride and the ability to fit three car seats in the second row. The cabin is a bit austere, however, and we were underwhelmed by the available V-6’s power.
