Volkswagen unveiled the 2024 model year Atlas at the beginning of 2023 and improved the big crossover that was based on the same MQB platform as its smaller sibling, the Golf.

Using a common base for more vehicles allowed Volkswagen to produce them at lower costs. The increased ground clearance and the available all-wheel drive system allowed the Atlas to perform well in a market that craved SUVs and crossovers. And, after five years on the market, the big VW got its well-deserved facelift.

At the front, the Atlas featured a new adaptive front-lighting system (AFS), which surrounded the headlights with a DRL strip. In addition, an illuminated lightbar connected the headlamps. On the main grille, the illuminated round VW logo took center stage, thus creating a premium look for the big crossover. But the automaker didn't stop there and also added a redesigned bumper that sported a set of triangular side scoops pointed inwards. From its profile, the Atlas revealed a muscular stance thanks to the enlarged wheel arches. Finally, at the back, the tilted forward tailgate sported a roof spoiler on its upper side.

Inside, the German automaker created a new cabin with an upgraded dashboard. Atop the center stack, Volkswagen installed a 12" touchscreen for the infotainment system. At the same time, all versions were fitted with a 12.5" digital instrument panel fronting the driver. Like its predecessor, the 2024 model-year came with three rows of seats and room for seven adults.

Underneath the hood, the engine cover left the impression that there was a transversely-mounted V8. But that was only an illusion since the car was powered by a turbocharged inline-four that produced 269 hp (273 PS), which was more potent than the previous VR6 was capable. Power went to the front or in all corners of the car via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
