What You Need to Know About the 2019 VW Atlas

Ample Seating

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas’s three rows of seating accommodate up to seven passengers. That means everyone can find their preferred spot. The second row is spacious enough to hold three child seats, or you can opt for the available captain’s chairs to provide your passengers with more space and added comfort.

When you need to increase your cargo space for larger items, you can fold down the second- and third-row seats to access up to 96.8 cu. ft. of space. As you approach the rear of the Atlas with your hands full, you can simply kick your foot under the rear bumper to open the available hands-free Easy Open power liftgate.
