Introducing to Racine: The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport!

New features and release date of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport 

The Volkswagen model family has been in need of a well-built crossover-styled SUV, as thanks to the larger footprint of new Tiguan and Atlas models, crossovers are the only industry left untapped by the iconic German manufacturer. For the 2020 model year, this will thankfully change, as VW has just announced its newest vehicle to the market – the Atlas Cross Sport. It’s more compact than its larger Atlas brother, but still brings the same innovative and strong qualities that have made the standard Atlas such a coveted model since 2017. 

We’ve got some info to show you, so come with Boucher VW and check out the new features and release date of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport – we think you’ll love it just as much as we do! 

New design cues of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport 

The 2020 Atlas Cross Sport will be quite the impressionable model both inside and out – its exterior is dominated by a raked roofline, LED headlights and taillights, and 21-inch five split-spoke machined alloy wheels. Altogether, it’s a menacing yet sleek piece of engineering that begs to let loose on the pavement.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport tech innovations 

Much like the rest of its VW brothers, the 2020 Cross Sport will be a bona fide superstar in the tech department as well, offering wireless smartphone charging and a 10-inch Volkswagen Digital Cockpit for you to utilize. Also, it’ll bring plenty of top-end driver assistance features to the table, including Pedestrian Monitoring, Blind Spot Monitoring, and class-exclusive Traffic Jam Assist, just to name a few.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport engine specs and towing  

If the Cross Sport has power ratings that sound familiar, that’s because it offers the same high adrenaline found in the Atlas. Under the hood lies an available 3.6-liter V6 engine (able to tow up to 5,000 pounds with a factory-installed towing hitch), able to crank out 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. With 4Motion All-Wheel Drive leading the way, there’s no terrain you can’t conquer!
