Serving Milwaukee, WI

For the 2021 model year, Volkswagen has introduced several exciting improvements to the popular Atlas. The Atlas is a three-row crossover with an infinite appeal, and the latest updates may make it an irresistible option for your next purchase. However, before you pick out your new Atlas from our inventory, take a moment to learn about the mid-year updates that are found in the 2021.5 Atlas.


You can appreciate essential updates to the capabilities of the Atlas in the 2021 model year, but there are no mid-generational improvements in this area that you need to be aware of. For 2021, optional all-wheel drive and the turbocharged four-cylinder engine’s availability across the trim levels are new. The two powertrains, however, are unchanged. These are a 376-horsepower, 3.6-liter, V6, and a 235-horsepower, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine.


The 2021 Atlas also shows off several style updates throughout the exterior and interior, but there are no mid-year design changes you need to be aware of. In 2021, the Atlas has a fresh look at the front and rear. The new styling emphasizes the linear design theme that carries throughout the exterior and the interior. The subtle improvements to the interior and the new material options add a modern touch to the cabin of the Atlas.


While the 2021 Atlas shows off the updates to the performance abilities and style, the 2021.5 Atlas has several new features that you need to check out. These are Travel Assist, the MIB3 media system, and Emergency Assist. Equipment that is standard or available in the 2021 and 2021.5 Atlas includes a powered panoramic sunroof, LED ambient lighting, a navigation system, V-Tex leatherette seats, smart device connectivity, a digital cockpit, wireless device charging, a keyless ignition, keyless access, and other gear.
