If you're looking for a vehicle with plenty of room that's sure to make an  impression no matter where you go, then you need a full-size SUV. These vehicles are beasts on the road, granting you a commanding vantage point higher than a sedan or crossover. There are plenty of impressive SUV models to choose from, so finding the right one for your needs can be a fun yet difficult challenge.

One of the best options available is the new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. This incredible SUV has all the performance, interior features, and technology you could want in an SUV-and then some. This 2018 Atlas review from the team Fred Beans Volkswagen of Doylestown will give you an in-depth look at what the vehicle has to offer, both under the hood and inside the cabin, so you can decide whether it would be a good fit for your unique lifestyle needs.

2018 Atlas Performance

SUVs have to be powerful to deal with the extra space and weight, and the 2018 Atlas doesn't disappoint. The base level 2.0L turbocharged engine can deliver 235 horsepower, so you have plenty of strength, even when you opt for the standard model. You can always upgrade, however, to the 3.6L V6, which increases the power to an impressive 276 horsepower.

Don't be afraid to push through rough terrain. The 2018 Atlas' 4MOTION® system allows you to easily conquer wet, snowy, and rough surfaces. It works by distributing power between the front and back wheel, depending on what the terrain calls for. This increases your traction and stability. All you have to do is turn the dial to the appropriate setting.

Volkswagen Atlas Interior

The first thing you might notice inside the 2018 Atlas is the panoramic sunroof. This huge sunroof spans virtually the entire cabin, allowing plenty of natural light to pour inside. The massive cabin of the 2018 Atlas features up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space with all the seats folded down, so you might need to get more stuff to experience its full capability.

Passengers are comfortable, too-and that includes all five of them in the rear seats. Second-row passengers can enjoy 37.6 inches of legroom, while third-row passengers still get 33.7 inches of legroom. While less than the other rows, the third row space is typically more limited than that on your average SUV.

2018 Volkswagen Atlas Technology

Volkswagen has a well-earned reputation as a technological innovator, and the 2018 Atlas is a perfect example. It features a digital cockpit, which is a completely digitized 12.3-inch instrumentation display that's fully customizable. It can even save profiles and automatically adjust to the preferred settings of whoever is driving.

Rearview cameras are fairly standard now, so the 2018 Atlas goes a step further. Using information gathered from multiple cameras mounted around the vehicle, you can get a bird's eye view of your Volkswagen Atlas as you drive. With this, you can see behind you and to the sides, including your blind spots, with ease like never before.

Test Drive the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

With its advanced performance, interior, and technology, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas stands to be one of the best SUVs you can buy in the Doylestown, Philadelphia, and New Britain areas. You can't fully understand all it can offer until you experience it for yourself, however.
