Experts Believe the Hype

Experts are anticipating the arrival of the new Volkswagen Atlas to liven up the crossover segment with its sleek looks and awesome features, helping you stand out on West Hollywood and Los Angeles roads!

  • Edmunds: “Access to the two third-row seats is made easier thanks to middle seats that slide and tilt forward. Unlike in most rival SUVs, the third-row seats can accommodate adults.”
  • Car and Driver: “Volkswagen’s all-new three-row crossover with room for seven arrives next spring—it should be worth the wait…Giving it some distinction among its established competitors are a body-side crease that rises over the wheels and standard LED headlamps underscored by LED daytime running lights.”
