Finding the Perfect Volkswagen for Sale at a VW Dealership Near You in Houston

You can’t go wrong with a Volkswagen SUV. That much has been proven over the years. If you still need convincing, you can reference the many awards and industry-leading ratings VW has racked up. Better yet, ask the person you know with a Volkswagen SUV. We know you know one…

Back? Great! We knew you would be.

Now for the real dilemma – narrowing your selection down to one choice. We’ll talk about many options, but the VW Atlas and VW Atlas Cross Sport are all the rage right now at new car dealerships.

People ran to VW dealers for the Atlas starting in 2018, making it one of our top-selling VW models for the past few years and leading the way to both the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport being on Consumer Reports Recommended SUVs list.

So, what should you expect when you visit your local Volkswagen dealer here at VW Clear Lake in Houston? And how do the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport Volkswagen SUVs measure up against one another?

Let’s break this down.

Volkswagen Atlas SUV

The 2022 Atlas redefines what a spacious car looks like. Gone are the days of having to choose between space and style. The 2022 Volkswagen Atlas combines the two gracefully. It offers drivers up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity and can accommodate up to 7 passengers. Its beautiful interior includes an expansive sunroof and LED ambient lighting for wherever the night takes you.

Of course, the Atlas wouldn’t be a Volkswagen SUV worth bragging about without superior performance and safety features. Whether you go with the V6 or the 4-cylinder, you will appreciate the power of the Atlas. An 8-speed engine featuring Tiptronic mode allows for manual shifting and can provide enough power for trailer towing or hauling your boat to the lake. This Volkswagen for sale doesn’t skimp on power.

With extra passengers and cargo, comes extra responsibility and VW has you covered in that regard as well. Safety is a core value for Volkswagen, and the Atlas illustrates that with features like the rear-view camera and stability systems to prevent accidents.

VW also has you covered in the event a collision is unavoidable. The Intelligent Crash Response system reacts when drivers and passengers can’t by turning off the fuel pump, unlocking the doors, and activating hazards anytime the airbags are deployed. Additionally, the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System helps slow the vehicle down after impact in hopes of reducing additional collisions.

The Volkswagen Atlas boasts other notable features including:

  • IQ.Drive
  • 4Motion with Active Control
  • VW Digital Cockpit
  • Fender Premium Audio System
  • App-Connect

Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport SUV

We understand that not everyone necessarily needs to accommodate seven people in their vehicles. Enter: the VW Atlas Cross Sport, which offers drivers the chance to fit all of the greatness of the Atlas into a less crowded lifestyle.

Think of the Atlas Cross Sport as a slightly scaled down version of the standard Atlas. Reducing the max storage down to 77.8 cubic ft. paves way to a much more modern and sporty design that you can expand on with an R-Line package. In VW SUV fashion, this design still boasts the power, performance, and safety of the Atlas.

Drivers will get up to 266 ft-lb. of torque, 276 horsepower, and a fantastic fuel economy of 21 mpg city/25 mpg highway. Additionally, it has a max towing capacity of 5,000 lbs., giving you plenty of muscle for hauling trailers. Contact or stop by VW Clear Lake to test drive this game-changing Volkswagen for sale.
