2019 Volkswagen Atlas Vs. Volkswagen Atlas

A silver 2019 Volkswagen Atlas whizzes around a curve on a highway by a lake.

The Volkswagen Atlas just debuted for the 2018 model year, which usually means not too many changes are going to be made for the next. However, in this case there has been a bit more done for 2019 than we would usually expect. But that’s Volkswagen- always going above and beyond.

The main changes for the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas have come in the form of newly-standard driver-assistance features. The trim lineup has also been changed up; there are two more trims this year, while the 2018 Launch Edition has been (understandable) kicked out. The seven trims available for the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas are: S, SE, SE w/ Technology, SE w/ Technology R-Line®, SEL, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium.

New Driver-Assistance on the 2019 Atlas Base Trim

New standard driver-assistance features starting on the base trim of the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas include:

  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • Pedestrian Monitoring
  • Rear Traffic Alert

More additions to the base trim of the 2019 Atlas include automatic headlights, heated side mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers. Altogether, the base 2019 Atlas now has a more premium feel than its predecessor.

Newly Standard Features on 2019 Atlas Trims

Other trims also get feature additions for the 2019 model year. These include:

  • The 2019 Atlas SE trim adds tri-zone automatic climate control.
  • The SE w/ Technology trim now offers a panoramic sunroof, garage door opener, and 20-inch alloy wheels.
  • The 2019 Atlas SEL trim gains the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, Media Control, a heated steering wheel, LED taillights, and an upgraded infotainment system with built-in navigation.

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It- Still the Atlas We Love

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas carries over the best traits from the 2018 debut of this admirable machine. Among these, it still has a gargantuan amount of space for both humans and cargo, maintaining those excellent transportation abilities that are so valuable in a good SUV. It also again gets impressive safety scores, showcasing the dedication Volkswagen holds for keeping you and your family secure out on the road.
