The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas earns a 'Best Large Utility' award from MotorWeek

Volkswagen set out to sell a more family-friendly vehicle when they introduced the Volkswagen Atlas during the 2017 model year, and from the get-go the three-row, seven-passenger SUV has been a hit with parents we serve from Germantown and beyond. And that's not simply us getting a bit biased, which is bound to happen when we're talking about our favorite brand.

Automotive organizations have also seen how well the Volkswagen Atlas performs and have rightly rewarded it. For the second year in a row, the Volkswagen Atlas was named the Best Large Utility vehicle for the 2019 MotorWeek Drivers' Choice award!

Award Breakdown

Admittedly, there are a lot of auto awards out there where it is clear the brand who pays the most in advertising is the brand that takes home the title. However, that's not the case with the MotorWeek award, as makers cannot simply buy their way to the title.

When MotorWeek sets out to name the victors, they take over 150 different cars, trucks, and SUVS and look at the following categories: performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency, and dollar value. This ensures that well-rounded models take the title in their segments, and that's exactly what happened to the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas!

Highlights on the Award-Winning Volkswagen Atlas

Below, we'll focus on three area's that Volkswagen shoppers tend to ask us about.

  • Performance: to get around Germantown, you'll have either a 2.0L turbocharged engine or a 3.6L V6 for additional power. You can also get available 4Motion® all-wheel drive for more traction control in all conditions.
  • Technology: all Volkswagen Atlas models have a standard touchscreen, as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®. You can connect to your three-row SUV with the VW Car-Net smartphone app, and for safer driving between the home in Leesburg VA and the office in Hagerstown, you can get advanced safety technologies like pedestrian monitoring, blind spot alerts, and more.
  • Practicality: people tend to buy three-row vehicles for the space, and loading cargo out back is a lot easier with the available remote power liftgate or the hands-free liftgate. It's also important to note that even adults will feel comfortable in all three rows.
