TOTAL SURPRISE - GR8 FOR TALL DRIVERS

TBH, 06/15/2020
V6 SEL Premium 4MOTION 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
78 of 80 people found this review helpful

Full disclosure - did copious research and this car wasn't even on my radar (I actually didn't know it existed) and came within literal minutes of buying a Hyundai Palisade when the dealer "forgot" 2000 worth of extra fees. Goodbye. Sat in a Lexus RX350 and it was tight but fine but still didn't feel comfortable. (I'm 6'5" 260) and it wasn't cheap by any means. Dejected I decided to start my search over and stumbled on a reddit review by a 6'7" driver who SWORE that the Atlas was the most comfortable he had ever been in a car in his life. Started doing research on said Atlas and stumbled across the new Cross Sport - which is literally the Atlas without a third row and a MUCH nicer interior. I ended up getting the V6 SEL and I have to say it's absolutely stunning for the price point. I literally saved 8000 dollars over the Palisade and I like the look and the engine better. MOST OF ALL I have never been more comfortable in the driver seat of any car I have owned - Murano, FX35, Q70L included. The center console pillar is low enough to not block your right knee (a huge deal for tall people) and the seat moves in every direction AND the steering wheel tilts and telescopes at a 65 degree angle (so no getting "caught" when getting in and out. In essence this means I am more comfortable in this car than I was in the Q70L which has three inches more leg room (on paper) This is not a sports car and doesn't drive like one, but it is gorgeous inside and has cavernous 2nd room legroom and more shoulder and hip room than the Palisade (and it ain't close) This car is flat out redonkulous for the price.

Great SUV

Having been a Mercedes GL owner for years, it was a nice change to drive a vehicle that was half the price with more room than you can imagine. Thank god they finally built a SUV without the third row which gives you plenty of cargo space and extra room for the passengers in the back. With the R model you get 360 view camera's with over the top view. Heated/cooled seats and a very friendly navigation system. Lane tracking is good, not Mercedes good, but enough. The seats are very comfortable and everything else is very well made. It is an Audi lite; minus some leather and other little things, but for the money it is 5 star. Only thing I would change is to offer a V8.

Interior Space, Styling & Comfort Prevail!

After researching SUVs for about year we decided on the Atlas Cross Sport. Here's the main reasons why, 1) Huge interior space (I'm 6'4" and have a tall family), 2) Rear legroom is 40.4" with rear heated seats, 3) We didn't need a 3 row, 4) Styling is unique & has a macho truck like appeal (people pause to look at this SUV), 5) Very quiet & smooth ride, super comfortable, 6) Engine has the power I wanted, 7) 8 speed trans. (I didn't want a CVT). The only downside is the fuel economy isn't great but the all the 'pros' outweigh this. Fuel economy is similar to all your friends driving F-150's, Ram's or Silverado's. VW just needs to lighten this vehicle with more aluminum and it will get better. Other than that it's great!! very happy so far!!

VW hit a homerun with this one!

My wife and I have been shopping for a mid size SUV for the last 2-3 months. We test drove the new Toyota Highlander, Chevy Traverse, Subaru accent, and a Honda Pilot. Right away we both said the Chevy Traverse is out, and the Subaru accent. American cars are just lacking in so many way's these days. The cars do not feel tight, and in general feel cheap. The Subaru felt very top heavy, and just did not drive well at all. The engine of that car is very up and down it's not smooth. So After some thought we were left with the VW Atlas Cross sport and the Toyota Highlander. Right off the bat the VW offers a better warranty, and we got 3 times or 30,000 miles of maintenance covered. The VW has loads of room compared to the three row Highlander. It feels and rides like a land yacht, but handles with the precision of a sport SUV. The Toyota was nice, but room felt tight even though it was one row bigger than the cross sport. Also I know this is objective, but me personally the Cross Sport looks sooooo much better than the highlander. The only thing that Toyota beats the VW in is the gas mileage. My wife and I ended up going with the VW Cross sport and we couldn't be any happier. For all the features that VW comes with and a price tag of high 30's to low 40's to me personally there is not a better SUV on the road for the money. If you are in the market for a midsize SUV you need to put this at the top of your list!

Love the Cross Sport

I wasn’t even aware the Cross Sport came out by VW. We drove the full-size Atlas about 2 years ago and loved it but just felt it was a bit big for what we wanted. When we came back in the market for a car now, I reached out to our VW salesperson who swore I’d love the new Cross Sport... I was thinking Tiguan or Honda CRV!! Heck no once I drove those and then drive the new Cross Sport...it was an easy decision. I love the features of the SE Tech model and got the 20” tires with the panaramic sunroof. So worth it! The IQ headlights are awesome for driving as well as the wireless Apple car play. I have the black and gray interior. The VW paint is like no other also!! Plenty of space and luxury in this vehicle and looks great!
