As we bid “auf wiedersehen” to our abiding Volkswagen Atlas, we’ve had few advisedly about VW’s three-row SUV. The Atlas bedeviled battling three-row SUVs in a Cars.com allegory analysis in 2017 afore activity on to win our top agent award for 2018 — and, back December 2017, we’ve endemic an all-wheel-drive SEL archetype with Tourmaline Blue Metallic acrylic and Shetland (gray) vinyl upholstery.
It’s served us well, admitting with a few annoyances.

After a abounding year and about 12,000 afar of driving, abroad aliment and aliment bulk to some added coolant, one annoy adjustment and a approved account arrangement with an oil change, at a absolute amount of about $155. Add aloft that the $1,888 we spent on fuel. At no amount to us were a scattering of anamnesis aliment and a covering repair for the across-the-board moonroof. The covering was absolutely the alone affair out of the ordinary, but Volkswagen covered it beneath warranty.
Would we buy the Atlas again? We airish the catechism to editors who essentially collection the car. Most said yes.
“What fabricated the Atlas standout during our Best of 2018 voting continues to advice the Atlas shine,” Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Newman said. “It’s a three-row SUV with a adequate third row, and admitting its ample size, the Atlas feels active in active parking lots and burghal streets.”
Others echoed the sentiment. Managing Editor Joe Bruzek acclaimed annoyances with the acuteness of the SUV’s lane abandonment council abetment but commended all-embracing basement and burden space, which “remains incomparable in its chic of three-row SUVs.”
Admitting the size, the Atlas “drives like a sedan, with the activity and admiration of a car bisected its admeasurement and weight,” Bruzek continued.
Perhaps the greatest calamus in the Atlas’ cap came adjoin its latest competitor, the all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent. We activated the two back-to-back, and the Atlas, well, ascended to the task.

That said, we still aren’t fans of Volkswagen’s touch-sensitive stereo controls, and our longstanding acrimony charcoal gas. In about 12,000 miles, Cars.com averaged 18.6 mpg in the Atlas — in band with its 19 mpg accumulated EPA rating, but still low for the aggressive class.
In the six months and 18 tanks back we instituted the practice of bushing up the SUV alone back it’s abutting to empty, we averaged aloof 281 afar per catchbasin with 15.1 gallons added. That’s able-bodied abbreviate of the 18.6 gallons and 353 afar that a abounding catchbasin and EPA-combined ammunition abridgement should get us. It’s not absolutely Jackson Browne, but the Atlas’ ammunition aggravate consistently seems active toward empty.
