Prepare to be Impressed by the New Volkswagen Atlas

We at Walker Volkswagen in Metairie are thrilled to introduce to you the new Volkswagen Atlas. It can go where a car goes with the seating capacity of a van and the towing capacity of a truck. With this SUV, you will sacrifice absolutely nothing; it has it all. 

What's New for 2021?

The new 2021 Volkswagen Atlas features a redesigned front and rear body, adding athletic flair to an already sporty and agile SUV.  Perfect for daily driving and fun with the whole family, the new Volkswagen Atlas is the best of both worlds for drivers seeking the ultimate versatility in adventure.  Abound with a luxurious suite of upgraded interior appointments, the first-generation Volkswagen Atlas shines with intelligence as it rolls into 2021.

Every single detail was meticulously thought out, and every inch was designed for optimum safety, comfort, and convenience. There are seven different trim levels to choose from, so there is something perfect for every driver in the Marrero area. They are:

  • S
  • SE
  • SE with Technology
  • SE with Technology R-Line
  • SEL
  • SEL R-Line
  • SEL Premium

Powerful Performance Features

The standard engine on the S trim level is a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 235 horsepower and 158 pound-feet of torque. Evert other trim level features a 3.6-liter V6 engine with an impressive 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but you can opt for all-wheel drive for more confident handling around Westwego and New Orleans. Every trim level's engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Like the other vehicles in our new inventory, the Volkswagen Atlas is powerful.

Important Safety Features for Both Driver and Passengers

Safety and technology come together in the Volkswagen Atlas to provide the most impressive protection and driving assistance available with up to nine driver-assistance systems:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: This feature allows the cruise control to adjust to the surrounding traffic.
  • Blind Spot Monitor: This monitor will alert that another vehicle is in your blind spot when you're attempting to change lanes.
  • Park Assist: First determining whether a parking space is big enough for your Atlas, the Park Assist will then help steer you into the perfect spot.
  • Area View: An available overhead camera can give you an aerial view to help you get a better idea of what's going on around your vehicle.
  • Lane Assist: This feature will be able to detect when you're swerving into another lane and assist you to steer back to a centered position if needed.
  • Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking: When trying to squeeze out of a tight parallel parking situation, this feature can help you gauge the distance and alert you if you're baking too close to another car.
  • Rear Traffic Alert: Operating with sensors, this system can alert you if a car is about to cross behind you when you're trying to back out of a space.

Always feel secure driving around Marrero in the Atlas knowing that an Intelligent Crash Response System also protects you and your loved ones. In the event of an accident, this system will automatically unlock the doors, turn off the fuel pump, and turn on the hazard lights. Inclement weather is also a non-issue for the Atlas since it comes with 4Motion Active Control, which allows you to switch between four different all-wheel-drive modes depending on road conditions.

2018 Volkswagen Atlas 

Cutting-Edge Technology for Connected Gretna, LA Drivers

Technology is at the forefront of the Volkswagen Atlas' design. The ground-breaking Volkswagen Digital Cockpit display shows you all the information you would normally get from various instruments all on one high-resolution screen. It can even save the personal preferences of up to four different drivers and also includes AppConnect which allows you to pair your favorite apps on your smartphone with the vehicle for connected drives around New Orleans.

Once your smartphone is paired with your Atlas, use the available VW Car-Net Security and Service. Your phone will be able to tell you if you've left the sunroof open, a door open, and even assist you in finding your vehicle in a crowded parking lot. The audio is equally impressive with a 480 watt Fender Premium Audio System. Control it all with a touchscreen sound system on a 6.5-inch display screen that includes an SD card reader and smartphone compatibility to complete your musical experience. Some of our recent used models have these high-end features.

For optimum convenience, of course we couldn't leave out the available remote start to heat the vehicle on those frosty mornings or cool it down on a smoldering afternoon in Metairie. Once inside, the temperature will be perfectly regulated with the Climatronic three-zone automatic climate control. This feature offers temperature control in three different zones of the vehicle-no more fighting over the AC.

Stylish Exterior and Interior Style and Design

Its unique look and style can easily identify any Volkswagen, and the Atlas is no exception. It has a bold and athletic look with 20-inch triple five-spoke alloy wheels and both a Hands-Free and Remote Powered liftgate for convenience in any situation.

The interior is just as impressive as the exterior, boasting a panoramic sunroof that spans almost the entire length of the three rows of seating for exciting views of the outdoors and night sky. The seating itself is luxurious and comfortable, accommodating up to seven people. There is even room in the second row for three car seats, or add the optional captain's chairs for optimal comfort.

The perfect family vehicle, we can't leave out the 17 cup holders (that's right, 17), and highly versatile cargo space. You can fold down the third row for a little extra room or both the third and second rows for some serious space. With all those people on board, the wise designers at Volkswagen haven't forgotten about their devices. At least one USB port comes standard with the Atlas, with the option of adding up to three more so that no one gets left out.
