The Volkswagen Atlas has impressed us again and again with each passing year. Every model manages to improve in a myriad of ways on the incarnation that came before, often in an unexpected fashion. It’s no wonder that we, and many of you out there, can hardly wait to get our hands on the 2020 iteration of this highly acclaimed line.

We don’t know too much about the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas. With the German automaker keeping us in such suspense, we’re all understandably on the edge of our seats and wondering: when will the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas be released?

It’s estimated that production of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas will begin in August 2019, which leads us to expect a fall 2019 release date. However, nothing has been officially announced. As of this writing, there is no official release date for the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas.

We don’t have much information on a 3-row 2020 Volkswagen Atlas. What we do know about is something called the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. The Cross Sport is a 2-row SUV aiming to compete with vehicles like the Honda Passport and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

When will the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport be released?

The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is expected to debut in the third quarter of 2019.

What is the 2020 Atlas Cross Sport?

Whispers of the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport have been in the air since 2015. It’s similar to a vehicle that Volkswagen recently debuted in China, the Teramont X, but will have some styling changes for the North American market. These include a unique lower bumper design, different wheels, and slightly different headlamps.

The rear window is forward-canted for a dash of sportiness. In a Car and Driver test, it recently defeated the Subaru Ascent in a head-to-head matchup. The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is certainly a vehicle to keep your eye on, especially if you’re in the market for a two-row SUV with a little more sportiness than usual to accompany its wide-ranging capability.
