    Engine Dynamics

    You’ll be happy to know that you have your choice from not one but two engines in the 2022 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport to level up your travels. Its base 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder delivers outstanding power, with 235 horses propelling it forward, while 258 lb-ft of torque gives it the power it needs to excite you. If you want a little more out of the Atlas Cross Sport, we recommend upgrading to the available 3.6L V6 engine for a boost of power. With 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, this engine gives it the strength it needs to tow up to 5,000 lbs. No matter which engine you choose, know that you’re able to harness an impactful performance, one that you won’t be able to find in many of its midsize rivals.

    Performance Enhancements

    When your travels take you over bumpy roads and through inclement weather, it helps to drive a vehicle that can adjust to these changes with precision. Thankfully, the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport offers 4MOTION all-wheel drive capabilities to effortlessly deliver maximum traction and stability in any travel condition. Adjust to your journey with four distinct drive modes, like Snow Mode, On-Road Mode, Off-Road Mode, and Off-Road Custom Mode, for more confidence, even in dangerous weather conditions. For example, utilizing Snow Mode reduces the amount of power going to the wheels so that you’re able to maintain ideal control over the vehicle. Off-Road Custom Mode allows drivers to tweak the vehicle's settings for optimal handling, especially when utilizing all-wheel drive.

    Sporty handling, advanced all-wheel drive capabilities, and an engine selection that offers power and excitement make the 2022 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport a winner with drivers near and far. In addition to showcasing a thrilling ride, this Volkswagen staple is also highly fuel efficient. This is a must for drivers who find themselves frequently traveling because the last thing you want to do is have to take time out of your day to stop by the gas station. Combine this efficiency with all the other performance elements you get to enjoy, and you’ve got one talented vehicle in the VW arsenal.
