Trim Lineup for the 2021 VW Cross Sport

Even after figuring out the engine and drivetrain you want, it’s also important to see what trims and features you can choose from. This is where you are really able to customize, especially in terms of outright style. The base trim, S, comes standard with a six-speaker sound system, 18-inch wheels, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, LED headlights, LED taillights, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Another trim, called SEL, adds in a navigation system, adaptive headlights, a panoramic sunroof, a digital instrument panel, and a heated steering wheel. Extra luxury can be found with the SEL Premium model. Here you’ll find leather seating, power-folding mirrors, an upgraded audio system, heated and ventilated front seats, and rear sunshades.

What safety features come with the Atlas Cross Sport?

With the engine sorted, and the trim level is chosen, it’s time to see what Volkswagen is giving this vehicle for safety. The first thing we want to note is some of the standard features, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and forward collision mitigation. Beyond that, we want to mention adaptive cruise control, parking sensors, adaptive headlights, and a navigation system. All of these safety features combine to make sure that you and your passengers are in good hands at all times, no matter the conditions or environment.
