Volkswagen’s microbus was one of the first SUVs, even though the term hadn’t yet been coined. Boasting room for an entire Cub Scout pack and their gear, it was also a great grocery-getter. With a top speed in the mid-60’s, if you were rolling down a very steep hill, it wasn’t fast but it was fun. Fast-forward to the all-new VW Atlas. This square-jawed SUV is ideal for family road trips or hauling a load of backyard project supplies much more quickly and in much more comfort. The sleek and stylish Atlas is easy to maneuver, even in tight parking garages. The top-of-the-line R package features beefy 21” wheels and tires propelled by a 3.6 liter, 276-hp V6 engine. Although 2-wheel drive is standard, check off the 4Motion all-wheel-drive option for maximum performance. The interior is roomy and comfortable, with three-row seating. The unique panoramic sunroof provides passengers a great view of the outdoors while they are swaddled in blissful comfort. Remove the third row and you’re ready for trips to the home improvement store or the nearest garden center; VW.com.
