2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, The Best In The Market

What elements do you look for in an SUV? Our clients consider design, performance, and capabilities as aspects their SUVs must touch on. Others, who appreciate thrilling rides, will also need a sportier design. Whichever element you have in mind, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport covers it. A question we often get at our dealership in Fort Collins is if the Volkswagen Atlas is similar to the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. The two are different. The main alteration you will notice is that the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport has two rows of seats, while the Volkswagen Atlas has three rows. Similarly, the Cross Sport has a sportier design compared to the Volkswagen Atlas. There are also features of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport that make it unique:


Denver drivers will access two engines; a 235 hp inline-4 2-liter turbocharged engine with 258 pound-feet torque and a 276 hp V6 3.6-liter engine with 266 pound-feet torque. Both engines are powerful enough to run the SUV efficiently. The inline-4 engine best suits Westminster drivers who wish to save more on fuel. Power in the front wheels achieves EPA ratings of 24 mpg highway and 21 mpg city. The V6 engine can only achieve 23 mpg highway and 17 mpg city when power is available to the front wheels. An automatic eight-speed transmission is made available in all engines, while power to the front or all wheels is optional to the buyer. The driving modes in the all-wheel-drive are Sport, Eco, and Normal. In just 7.5 seconds, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport can achieve 60 mph. This is a slight improvement of the Volkswagen Atlas.

Safety and Technology

Volkswagen ensured that the technology you enjoy in the 2021 Cross Sport is modern. The standard touchscreen is a 6.5-inch screen, which can be 8 inches large in higher models. The SUV's modern technology also comes with smartphone connectivity, US ports, automatic climate control, a driver's power-adjustable seat, heated front seats, and a power liftgate.

Safety technology for the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport includes a front assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and a new emergency assist and travel assist. However, the emergency assist and travel assist are only available in the SEL trim, while the rest of the safety features are standard in every 2021 Cross Sport model. For Volkswagen, front assist is simply automatic emergency brakes when the SUV detects a possible collision. Adaptive cruise control is active on long rides. It ensures that there is a safe distance between the SUV and other cars ahead.


A big update made to the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport interior design is giving the SUV two rows of seats in its cabin, unlike the Volkswagen Atlas. If you live in Fort Collins and need more room in the back seats, then this is the way to go. The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport provides an extra three inches of legroom for second-row occupants than in the Volkswagen Atlas. Volkswagen also gives you better headroom in the Cross Sport than that of the Atlas. The cabin is attractive due to the high-quality materials used as upholstery. Controls around the cockpit area are also easily accessible making driving convenient.

The cargo area is pretty generous even without folding the second-row seats. The volume is 40.3 cubic feet, which is more than the volume recorded in most midsize SUVs. Therefore, it can fit all family members and their suitcases without folding the second-row seats. Folding the second-row seats expands the volume to 77.8 cubic feet.

Volkswagen designed the 2021 Atlas Cross Sport to be better in every way imaginable. Also, the SUV is not restrictive in terms of trim configurations. Therefore, you can turn your life around by taking a test drive in this SUV following its debut.
