Get to Know the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas in Fort Collins

When it first debuted in 2018 as a new, spacious, three-row option at Ed Carroll Volkswagen, the Volkswagen Atlas SUV immediately generated a lot of buzz and piqued the curiosity of drivers throughout the Denver area. Now, this top-rated, mid-sized SUV is arriving for 2021, and it continues to build on the promise of topnotch quality and refinement.

Eye-Catching Design and Head-Turning Appeal

Still in its first exciting generation, the 2021 VW Atlas continues to give drivers in Boulder and Westminster an appealing option for SUV driving. It's large, with a commanding view of the road, but it's also a manageable size, perfect for parking in crowded lots or maneuvering in traffic on the highway.

As part of the 2021 model year, the front and rear ends of this seven-passenger SUV get a slight refresh. This includes redesigned headlights, bumpers, taillights, and a new front grille. Plus, on the inside, the interior design also gets a tweak, with a new steering wheel and a few other updated elements. The overall effect is an SUV that continues to deliver on the promise of its debut model year with the size and space drivers want, but with a slight overhaul to keep it fresh and modern.

The Tech and Creature Comforts Thornton Drivers Want

Many are even listed as standard across all trim levels, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, in-vehicle Wi-Fi capability, a touchscreen interface, and a nice audio system with six speakers.
