The 2021 VW Atlas Blends Performance, Technology, and Practicality 

Drivers in the Stamford area expect a lot from a modern SUV. Beyond offering enough room for friends, family, and their gear, a mid-size SUV needs to rise to the challenge of keeping everyone connected and safe while also providing a fun driving experience in the Greenwich, CT area. The 2021 VW Atlas absolutely shines in each of these areas.

Choosing the 2021 VW Atlas will offer you two engine options. We have a turbo 2.0-liter inline-four base engine that produces 235 horsepower. VW Atlas upgrades to a 3.6-liter V6 option that cranks out 276 horsepower. Both engines pair to an automatic eight-speed transmission.
