Test Drive the Volkswagen Atlas in Houston TX
Just because you own a three-row SUV doesn’t mean that all of the seats need to be occupied at all times. This is one of the greatest conveniences that the Atlas has to offer, plenty of flexible space.
Able to seat up to seven, you’ll never have to worry about leaving anyone behind or not having enough room. And don’t worry about clambering behind the second row and being stuck in the way back. The second row has a lever that will fold and slide the seats forward, creating a wide enough entryway.
All of this roomy passenger space doubles as cargo space as well. Depending on the number of occupants in your VW Atlas, second and third rows of seating can be folded down, creating a maximum of 96.8 cu-ft of storage space. A cross-bar system can also be fitted to the roof of the Atlas, helping to improve your ability to haul larger equipment like bikes, skis, kayaks, etc.
Large and in charge, the Volkswagen Atlas isn’t designed to be bulky or cumbersome; instead, its design is sporty and menacing. Sleek and curvy, the Atlas is able to cut through the wind while delivering a responsive and lively ride.
As soon as the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas becomes available in Houston, Texas, we would like to welcome you to Archer VW for a test drive. Families in search of a modern and flexible means of transportation, the Atlas might be exactly what you’re looking for!
