The V6 option is a 3.6L and kicks it up 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of rotational force and is available in both front and all-wheel drive. Properly equipped, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas can tow around 5,000 pounds, perfect for those road trips around Los Angeles.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Interior

The interior of the 2020 Atlas is spacious and stylish, just what Manhattan Beach drivers want. With more than 117 inches in wheelbase, it’s one of the most spacious models in its class and provides plenty of legroom in all three rows. Even the third row can comfortably accommodate adult passengers. There is also plenty of cargo space for all of your gear. With about 20.6 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and an overall cargo capacity of up to 97 cubic feet, you can easily stash away all of that camping and fishing gear.

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta will offer the same 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the 2019 model. With 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, this standard six-speed manual transmission engine will excel on the roads of West Hollywood.
