Atlas Named 2018 Best Three-Row SUV For Families by Parents Magazine and Edmunds

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has been named Best Three-Row SUV in the 10 Best Family Cars for 2018 list by Parents magazine and Edmunds. Volkswagen’s midsize SUV has been praised for spaciousness, driving dynamics and the People First Warranty.

The People First Warranty

*6 years/72,000 miles (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty on MY2018 and newer VW vehicles, excluding e-Golf. See owner’s literature or dealer for warranty exclusions and limitations.

Editors at Parents magazine praised the Atlas for third-row legroom, the six-year or 72,000 mile warranty and ease of maneuverability. “We rated the steering 5 out of 5,” said Dan Edmunds, head of vehicle testing at Edmunds (but no relation). “It drives a lot smaller than it is.”

“We are so proud to be named one of the 10 best cars for families by Parents magazine and Edmunds,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Volkswagen of America, Inc. “The 2018 Atlas was designed and assembled in America specifically with American families in mind. Three rows of highly configurable seating with the latest tech features and Volkswagen’s trademark style and driving dynamics is definitely a winning combination.”

To compile the annual list, Parents and Edmunds first looked at safety ratings, narrowing contenders to the 109 that were a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or received a 5/5 star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration. Edmunds rated the mechanics of each of those vehicles, and Parents installed car seats and looked for family-friendly features in the 20 finalists.

Designed specifically for the American family, the 2018 Atlas is available with two engine options—a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.6-liter V6—and in five trim levels: S, SE, SE w/ Technology, SEL, and SEL Premium.
