When the Volkswagen Touareg was discontinued in North America the German carmaker brought in the Atlas model as its replacement.
The Touareg was a true SUV presented as a luxury vehicle with a high-level of comfort and safety features as you would expect from an Audi.
This replacement model is a crossover SUV which means that underneath is a chassis from a car (the same used in the Golf) that isn't really designed for off-road capability.
Though being based on a car's platform does give the Atlas the benefit of being lighter and less costly to run, an important factor with today's car-buying public.
Although the car was designed for the American market it is sold in several other regions (such as China) as the Volkswagen Teramont.
Buyers could choose between a choice of engines ranging from a modest 2-litre in size to the sporty 3.6-litre V6.
Transmission of the power to the wheels is done by a 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission powering the front or all four wheels.
Sales of the Volkswagen Atlas continue to grow year on year in all regions especially China as the rapidly growing middle-class seek out Western luxury brand imports.
