Volkswagen's new three-row 2018 Atlas mid-size SUV will be available as a Weekend Edition that enhances cargo management with a roof-mounted cargo box and divider to keep pets secure, the company announced.
The Atlas Weekend Edition will debut at the Chicago Auto Show and go on sale with other Atlas models in the spring. It will be based on the SEL Premium trim grade. Volkswagen has announced SE and SEL Premium trims, and will offer a "performance inspired" R-Line appearance package.
The Atlas Weekend Edition adds the Urban Loader cargo box that can expand to 17.7 cubic feet; base carrier bars to carry skis, snowboards, kayaks, or bikes; a pet-friendly barrier behind the second row; and a tablet mount attached to the headrest of the front-row seats.
