Volkswagen unveils the new Atlas Cross Sport Suv Coupe
Only presented as a concept vehicle at the New York International Auto Show last year, the production version of the Atlas Cross Sport has now been unveiled in Chattanooga.
The successful SUV for North America, Russia and the Middle East is now available as a coupe version. The Atlas Cross Sport is Volkswagen’s third SUV derivative for the North American market.
The Atlas Cross Sport has a 235 PS, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine as standard, with a 276 PS V6 available as an option. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Like the Atlas, the SUV is based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform. The Atlas Cross Sport is also available with the 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
The Atlas Cross Sport is built alongside the Atlas and Passat at the Volkswagen Chattanooga Assembly Plant, the result of a $340 million additional investment by Volkswagen in the facility.
The Atlas Cross Sport is not available on the European market.
