Volkswagen Atlas in Year Two

What’s new in the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas?

You may recall all the buzz the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas received. It was the launch of the new midsize SUV, and it received a lot of praise from drivers and critics alike. Most vehicles don’t change much (if at all) between their first and second years on the market. However, the Atlas is a little different.

New trim levels for the 2019 Atlas

It may only be year two in the existence of the Atlas, but Volkswagen is already shuffling around the trim levels. The Launch Edition trim has been replaced with the R-Line trim. The R-Line is a sportier trim across all Volkswagen models, and it’s offered in the middle of the trims so drivers can get the benefit of a sportier appearance while staying relatively low on price and still getting premium features. The trim levels are now, from least to most expensive:seating in the 2019 VW Atlas

The base S trim has a few more standard features that include Front Assist (forward collision warning and autonomous emergency braking), blind spot monitor, rear traffic alert, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and heated side mirrors. Even with these new features, the MSRP has only been raised slightly to $30,895. Other upgrades include a standard Volkswagen Digital Cockpit in the SEL and tri-zone automatic climate control in the SE.
