The 2024 Volkswagen Atlas is being recognized for its elegant looks, enhanced interior design, a new turbocharged engine and spacious interior. You can’t ignore this SUVW, which packs a stylish, spacious and powerful punch. In this blog, we’ll explore the 2024 Volkswagen Atlas and break down the engine, towing capacity, interior design, technology and safety.
What's New for 2024?
The most notable change in the 2024 Atlas is the overall look. From the revised front fascia with new headlights to the updated wheel design, the Atlas received a glow-up in the 2024 version. When it comes to the change in power, Volkswagen now offers the Atlas with only a 269-hp turbocharged inline-four powertrain (previously had a 276-hp V-6). However, despite a difference in power, the max towing capacity remains at 5000 pounds.
As for the interior features upgrades, Volkswagen included a heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats as standard equipment. The 12.0-inch infotainment screen is also new, a significant upgrade from the previous 8.0-inch unit.
There are also more options for exterior colours, including Avocado Green and Pure Gray.
Engine, Transmission and Performance
Whether you are a commuter or a city driver, the VW Atlas provides a smooth and reliable drive. As mentioned, an upgraded, turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the 2024 VW Atlas with a boosted 269 horsepower. Power flows through an eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® paddle shifters.
The VW Atlas has both front-wheel drive (FWD) or 4MOTION® all-wheel drive (AWD), depending on whether you want higher fuel efficiency or greater all-season handling confidence.
