Volkswagen Atlas Engine and Towing

The Atlas is built for performance. The standard 2019 Volkswagen Atlas S with a 2.0L engine clocks in at 235 horsepower and can tow up to 2,000 pounds. Starting with the Volkswagen Atlas V6 with 4MOTION®, you get the extra traction of 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive with Active Control, but that’s just the beginning of how this Volkswagen keeps you and your trailer moving down the road, safe and steady when properly equipped. A factory-installed hitch and available 3.6L V6 engine with 276 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque creates an exceptional towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, plenty for small RVs and boats.

Volkswagen Atlas Cargo Space

There’s plenty of room inside the 2019 Atlas for carrying smaller cargo. With the second and third row of seats folded flat, you get a spacious 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space. The upcoming model is no exception. Car and Driver gave the 2020 Atlas their carry-on bag test and it came out a winner, topping even the much-larger Honda Pilot with capacity for four carry-on suitcases behind the third row of seats. With the second and third row folded down, they found that the Atlas can hold a whopping 38 carry-ons.
