Room for Seven in Largest VW

With room to comfortably seat seven adults, the 2018 VW Atlas will be the largest VW ever assembled in North America. “This is the biggest and boldest Volkswagen we have ever built in the United States, delivering the distinctive design and craftsmanship we’re known for, now with room for seven,” said VW North America CEO Hinrich J. Woebcken. The Atlas marks a brand new journey for Volkswagen to enter into the heart of the American market.” Already with a compact SUV in the Tiguan and the midsize Touareg in the lineup, VW thinks there is plenty of room for the full-size Atlas. Expect the new SUV to show up in the Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale showroom sometime next year.

Comes With Choice of Powertrains

The new VW Atlas offers a choice between a 2.0L turbocharged four cylinder or a naturally aspirated V6 3.6L engine. No EPA fuel estimates have been released yet, but the V6 produces 280 horsepower, while the four-cylinder delivers a very respectable 238 horses. 4Motion all-wheel drive will be available only with the V6. Both engines will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission to deliver maximum power when needed along with outstanding fuel efficiency.

New Atlas Loaded With Technology

The new Atlas will have the latest version of the VW Car-Net telemetry and infotainment system that powers all your audio, communication and navigation needs. Listen to your favorite music through the upscale Fender premium system that pumps 480 watts through 12 speakers. Whether you need Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or MirrorLink, the VW Atlas will work with any smartphone to deliver a limited number of apps. Car-Net also provides a safety net with the ability to contact an operator in the event of an emergency. You can use your smartphone to access certain features of your car, such as locking or unlocking the doors. It also comes in handy to find your new Atlas in a sea of vehicles at a crowded parking lot. You can feel safe driving the new Atlas, as it has a number of driver assistance features that help avoid accidents and minimize injuries. Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring and Autonomous Emergency Braking work together with a specially designed frame that diverts energy away from the cabin.

Built in USA Green Facility

The new Atlas will be built in the United States at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga, Tennessee facility. This is the only manufacturing plant in the world to be certified “Platinum” by the U.S. Green Building Council because of its overall attention to the environment. Make sure and stay in touch with Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to see when the new Atlas will make its first appearance.


Flagship Utility Vehicle All About Comfort

As the flagship SUV in the Volkswagen lineup, the Touareg is full of luxury features and technology that make your daily drive pure pleasure. With a new Wolfsburg trim package that includes sophisticated touches like two-tone leather seats, stainless steel accents, racing pedals and heated and ventilated front seats, the 2017 VW Touareg is designed with the occupants in mind. The new Touareg is also packed with a suite of driver assistance safety features and offers the RNS 850 navigation system that utilizes an 8-inch touchscreen that delivers your route in stunning HD with 3D graphics. See how special the new Touareg is by taking a trip to Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

V6 Teams With Standard All-wheel Drive

The new Volkswagen Touareg is powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.6L V8 that produces 280 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. As an integrated part of a powertrain that includes an automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, the engine has more than enough power for most recreational needs, as well as the ability to power through mountain passes with a family full of occupants. Different driving modes let you tune the response based on your desires and road conditions. A clever bit of technology reduces the engine’s rpm by approximately 30 percent when you hit the top gear, increasing fuel efficiency.

Enjoy Cabin Built for Royalty

Once you sit behind the wheel of the new VW Touareg, you may not want to get out. Soft LED lighting creates a seductive mood as you slide into the plush seats. An ergonomic layout of controls makes sense, putting everything the driver needs within easy reach. A high-powered audio system includes a 60 gigabyte hard drive and connectivity to your iPod or MP3 player to effortlessly stream concert quality sound. Step up to the Executive trim level and you get a 620-watt system with 10 speakers to envelope you with your favorite music.

Safety Technology Incorporates Modern Technology

From the specially-designed chassis which diverts damage away from the cabin to the suite of driver assistance features, the new Volkswagen Touareg is built with safety in mind. The pros at Chapman Volkswagen will give you a complete explanation of all the features, which include a rollover sensor system, automatic post-collision braking and cruise control that automatically maintains a safe distance between you and the vehicle directly in front. When you’re considering a full-size SUV, make sure and put the new Touareg on your list.
