The Atlas Weekend Edition will be based on an SEL Premium model, equipped with a 3.6-liter VR6 engine producing 276 horsepower and an eight-speed transmission, paired with Volkswagen’s advanced 4Motion all-wheel drive with Drive Mode Select. The Weekend Edition will feature a modern variation of the pop-up roof. When it is empty, the Urban Loader cargo box offers a sleek, minimized appearance and when needed for hauling, it can expand to a 17.7 cubic-foot container. The Weekend Edition will also feature base carrier bars for attaching accessories for skis, snowboards, kayaks or bikes. There will also be practical side steps for easy reach of the roof storage.
