Bayside drivers love their weekends, judging from all the boats and travel trailers we see being towed around every Saturday morning. That’s why so many of Platinum Volkswagen of Hicksville customers have been impressed with the Volkswagen Atlas towing capacity. The new Volkswagen Atlas SUV can haul a whopping 5,000 lbs when decked out with the available 3.6L V6 engine, which is more than enough for a fishing boat, a couple of ATVs, or a camper trailer. You can stop by our showroom and see for yourself. We’ll be happy to talk to you about our financing or Volkswagen Atlas lease options. In the meantime, here’s some more details about this powerful SUV.

The Volkswagen Atlas SUV

There are two powerful engines available for the Volkswagen Atlas SUV. The standard 2.0L Turbo engine is optimized for performance, providing 235 horsepower (with premium fuel) and 258 lb-ft of torque (with premium fuel). It gets an EPA-estimated 26 miles to the gallon on the highway and 20 miles to the gallon in the city. The available 3.6L V6 engine gets an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, but performs at 276 horsepower with 266 lb-ft of torque. No wonder the Volkswagen Atlas towing capacity is so impressive.

It’s Not All About the Power

There’s plenty to love about the Volkswagen Atlas. Towing capacity is just the tip of the iceberg, and fortunately, you won’t have to sacrifice comfort to experience the power of this SUV. Three rows of seats provide plenty of leg and headroom for seven passengers. Those seats easily fold down to provide an incredible 98.6 cubic feet of cargo space. With 17 cupholders, individual climate control for every passenger, and 2nd row captain’s chairs, your passengers will be rolling in style. It’s no mystery why the Volkswagen Atlas SUV is so popular with Hempstead drivers.
