Have you ever found yourself stuck between the Volkswagen Tiguan and Volkswagen Atlas? If you have, then the new 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is the perfect combination of both.

According to Volkswagen, the Cross Sport is the first time Volkswagen has used their strategy of doubling up in the biggest SUV segments, a plan that will be repeated in the compact SUV segment with a vehicle that will fit the lineup beneath the Tiguan.

Chief Operating Officer of the Kelly Automotive Group, Brian Heney, was able to see the new SUV in person at this year's New England Auto Show.

So what is the difference between the current Atlas and the Cross Sport? The Cross Sport is 2.8 inches shorter and 2.3 inches lower. As far as cabin space goes, the Cross Sport has an impressive 111.8 cubic feet of passenger space, with 40.3 cubic feet of luggage space behind the second-row seats and 77.8 cubic feet with the second row folded.

Inside, you will find that the Cross Sport received upgrades over the existing Atlas. Those upgrades include a newer steering wheel, with more intuitive controls, new high-tech features such as available wireless charging, and available Fender Premium Audio System with 12 speakers.

Volkswagen takes the styling, which is similar to the current Atlas, to a new level. Car and Driver has said that the Cross Sport's steeply raked rear window and couple-like roofline make it the more stylish Atlas. In the R-Line trim, you can find unique bumpers and badging. Other notable features include sleek and efficient LED taillights, available 21” alloy wheels, and an available panoramic sunroof that is almost five feet long.

The 2020 Atlas Cross Sport will come in eight trim levels: S, SE, SE w/ Tech, R-Line, SEL, SEL R-Line, SEL Premium, and SEL Premium R-Line.


The Volkswagen 2020 Atlas Cross Sport is expected to be available Spring 2020.
