2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport US Release Date

It is becoming a reality! Photos of the nearly-production model are now available, but we still expect final tuning on the 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport. This is going to be a 5-seater version of the largest SUV with Volkswagen badge. The Cross Sport version is slightly smaller, and it will appear in the Asian market at first. Soon after, European customers will also get their version. For the US the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport could replace Tiguan. It is still not confirmed since it can take a position between it and standard Atlas.

The prototype of the 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport also pulls some other conclusions. The 2020 VW Atlas Tanoak truck will also arrive soon. This is what everyone expects since these two concepts shared a lot of in common. What’s more, we still don’t know what will be under the hood of the new SUV. Hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and standard petrol unit, all options are still open. Various markets could get different configuration. One thing is sure – leaked images are not showing the PHEV model.

2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport Hybrid

There are few options for the 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport Hybrid and PHEV vehicles. Experts started their prediction from the existing SUV in the USA. That means the new vehicle will combine either 2.0-liter turbo-four or a 3.6-liter V6 with an electric battery. It is likely that VW engineers will opt for a larger displacement. It is going to pair a couple of electric motors. The system will be good for 355 hp (265 kW). Standard setup can make 275 hp.

This power will help 2020 VW Atlas Sport accelerate to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. Max speed is going to be limited to 130 mph (210 kmh). A dual-clutch auto gearbox transfers the energy to either front or all wheels.

The electric battery alone will be able to supply the SUV with power. However, the range of an 18 kW pack is not stunning, with an estimated range of 42 miles before the recharge. However, this is also good as an optional possibility. Finally, the 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport could get a mild-hybrid system with a small 2 kWh battery as the last option.

2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport Spy Photos

All we know about the upcoming 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport are the spy photos. Without camo, leaked images are showing definitely something that could be the production model. We can se a coupe-like SUV. However, the spied vehicle changed a few things on the concept model, but it still keeps the main idea of an aggressive and appealing SUV. Rounded front fascia gets a new bumper and grille.

So, the 2020 VW Atlas Sport will be different than its sibling from the US. Although it is going to be a coupe, the roofline is not so tight. This means occupants on the rear bench will have enough space for heads. The back of the SUV is the part where we will spot the most noteworthy difference between this and US model. Body color is unique, with special finishes. So, we have another change compared to standard Atlas.
