What's New For the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas?

Since the Atlas debuted in 2018, Volkswagen decided it's not due yet for a significant design change. That's just fine with consumers, as evidenced by the SUV's popularity and award-winning features. However, the SUV still gets subtle changes for 2020 to stay as competitive as possible. This year, the Atlas features a two-year free maintenance plan. It also receives a 50,000-mile or four-year warranty.

Aside from those changes that cover all trims, there are some model-specific changes to enjoy, too. This includes the addition of a standard 2.0 Car-Net infotainment system. A WiFi hotspot is now standard as well. The SE Tech, a variant of the SE trim, gets standard 20-inch wheels. Larger 21-inch wheels are standard on the SEL Premium. The SE Tech R-Line now includes backup parking sensors and a motion-activated liftgate. Despite all these changes, The VW Atlas remains a family-friendly SUV with plenty of style and multiple seating configurations no matter which enticing trim level you choose.
