When the Volkswagen brand unveiled it’s all-new, third-generation Touareg flagship back in 2018 at the Beijing Auto Show, it was clear that their intentions were to market the nameplate as a premium offering, even more so than the Arteon.

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport are three- and two-row mid-size crossovers, respectively, that use big space and value to appeal to wide American shoppers. They’re comfortable for up to eight (or five in the Cross Sport) passengers and offer a longer warranty than most competitors and a familiar VW subdued style.

The 2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport is expected to carry over with no changes after its debut in 2020. The Atlas Cross Sport fits just below the larger Atlas in VW’s lineup, with the two-row capability to the Atlas’s three. The two SUVs are based on the same platform, but the Atlas Cross Sport has a lower roofline and a sharper profile.

Those attributes give the Cross Sport an edge in the styling department. Flared wheel wells lend a touch of aggression, while the roofline brings some needed sportiness to the Atlas shape. The interior isn’t quite as sharp, but everything is functional and easy to use.

The two 2021 Atlas models (Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport) are siblings in almost every way this year. The three-row Atlas received a slight fluff and buff to its bumpers to bring it closer to the Atlas Cross Sport’s looks. The overall look is fine and a little tougher this time around, which we don’t mind. The interior is still pretty drab and only gets more interesting in some trims—although we’re still not sold. Starting from an average score of 5, we’ll ring the bell once on the interior and land at a 4 for style.

2021 Volkswagen Atlas Fuel Economy

2021 volkswagen atlas 05

Among big crossovers with two and three rows, the 2021 VW Atlas is competitive. Among other crossovers that offer hybrid powertrains or fuel-saving tech, the Atlas falls down.  The most popular Atlas has three rows, a V-6, and an all-wheel drive. The EPA rates it 16 mpg city, 22 highway, 18 combined. That’s a 3 on our fuel-economy scale.  Among family-focused, all-wheel-drive competitors, the Atlas is competitive but not the head of the class. The Honda Pilot and Kia Telluride rate up to 23 mpg combined, and the hybrid-powered Ford Explorer rate up to 28 mpg combined.
