family rides in 2019 Volkswagen Atlas

The VW Atlas is a spacious SUV with three rows of seating and plenty of fun features for the whole family. And while Glenview and Evanston families rave about the stellar performance of this midsize vehicle, it’s the VW Atlas MPG that surprises many Chicago drivers. With the standard 2.0-liter engine, you’ll enjoy up to 26 mpg on the highway*. Why is the VW Atlas fuel economy so impressive? Find out with Jennings Volkswagen, and check out our new Atlas inventory while you’re here!

VW Atlas Fuel Economy

Under the hood of the Volkswagen Atlas, you’ll find the type of exceptional German engineering that has made VW such a global phenomenon. But, there’s more than one way to experience the latest Atlas. With two choices of powertrains to pick, which will you choose to drive home?

  • The 2.0L Turbo engine generates 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque with premium fuel, along with fuel economy figures of 22 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*
  • Need more power on your morning commute? Check out the available 3.6L V6 engine with 276 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. This powerhouse generates 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.**

The Bottom Line: On the highway, the VW Atlas mpg is strong no matter which engine you choose. However, drivers who spend a lot of time on the streets of Northbrook or Park Ridge might consider the base 2.0-liter engine a smarter buy.

Volkswagen Atlas Specs

What Volkswagen Atlas specs should you be aware of if your primary concern is the VW Atlas MPG? First off, the VW Atlas fuel tank size is 18.6 gallons. Since the Atlas also offers up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo volume with the rear seats flat, you’ll never have to make a second trip. Together, these two facts mean you’ll spend less time at the pump!

You may have heard that the Volkswagen Atlas engine won’t be able to achieve its best performance with regular gas, but is premium fuel really required for your daily drives around Chicago? The answer is no. Although drivers who choose premium fuel might see small increases to their VW Atlas specs, you can use regular fuel without any major consequences. Using one or the other type of fuel shouldn’t affect your VW Atlas fuel economy.

Volkswagen Atlas MPG and Performance Features

While the Volkswagen engine design optimizes fuel economy at every turn, it’s not the only innovative technology onboard the latest VW Atlas. The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which provides a smooth and efficient driving experience while improving your Volkswagen Atlas mpg. If you’d like a little extra control, use Tiptronic® mode to shift manually or try Sport Mode for a fun challenge.

The VW Atlas specs also include available 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive, which includes four different modes. While your Atlas will automatically adjust its power output to meet the needs of your journey, you can also use preset modes like Snow and Rain to anticipate any bad weather ahead.
