2018 Volkswagen Atlas Henderson NV

What comes to mind when you see or hear the word “atlas?” Do you imagine a great big map, plotting endless trails across lands both discovered and untouched? This makes perfect sense when it comes to the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas in Henderson NV. The all-new, full-size SUV was made with American families in mind—families with a knack for adventure, both in their everyday routines and on their weekend excursions.

The Atlas is a three-row SUV that can seat as many as seven people. If you do not need seating for that many, you can opt for the two available second-row captain’s chairs, which offer a bit more space for each individual passenger. The Atlas also offers an available panoramic sunroof that runs nearly the full length of the vehicle, allowing passengers to take in the amazing views of all your journeys. Let’s explore the Atlas some more.
