With its comfortable and roomy passenger accommodations, expansive cargo area, and numerous appealing amenities, the VW Atlas offers one of the most well-rounded and family-friendly experiences in the midsize three-row SUV class. It's bold and stylish, enjoyable to drive, and offers a comprehensive roster of advanced safety technologies. And its seven-passenger cabin provides reclining seats and enough room for adults in all three rows. If you're seeking a handsome, versatile, and nicely equipped minivan alternative for your Germantown or Gaithersburg family, you can find the VW Atlas here at Fitzgerald Volkswagen Frederick. Here's a quick look at a few notable attributes of the 2022 model.

Standard Features

The VW Atlas has streamlined its features to six trim levels for 2022, with the SE tier assuming the role of the entry-level model. But despite its position in the lineup, the Atlas SE is pleasingly equipped with many amenities. Standard exterior features include 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights with low-speed corner illumination, roof rails, heated mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, and proximity keyless entry. On the inside, Atlas SE offers amenities like a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, second-row sunshades, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

The 2022 Atlas SE also comes standard with many tech and safety features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone, Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.


The VW Atlas is powered by a standard 2.0L Turbo four-cylinder (235 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque) paired with an 8-speed Tiptronic transmission. More internal motivation is available via a 2.6-liter V-6, which boosts output to 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft.

For improved confidence and control in all driving conditions, the 2022 Atlas offers VW's surefooted 4MOTION® all-wheel drive system—optional for SE trims and standard on higher tiers.


A 60/40-split second-row bench slides, reclines, and tilts forward, giving passengers convenient access to the rear seats. With all seats in use, Atlas reserves 21 cubic feet for your groceries or luggage. The third row folds effortlessly into the floor, providing 55.5 cubic feet for cargo. And when you need more room to carry your errands or adventures, the second row does the same, expanding capacity to a cavernous 96.8 cubic feet.
