Totally unexpected, Volkswagen has publicized that it will make the fair R-Line care accessible on its all-new seven-passenger Atlas SUV. The Chattanooga-built three-row Volkswagen Atlas will be accessible in five trim stages when it arrives in spring as a 2018 version, although the R-Line SUV collection will only be accessible later in the year and will come on the upper-end SE and SEL trims.
Thought on increasing an elegance of sportiness to the already well-equipped SE and SEL, the R-Line out care includes 20-inch aluminum-alloy twin-spoke wheels and unique front and rear bumpers, the front highlighted by breeze intakes and the rear with a baffle design. Increase nearly camouflaged side skirts and R-Line tagging.
Indoor features include a R-Line steering wheel and a R-Line trademark on the information and entertainment surface. The pedals wear a set of unblemished alloy covers. Sadly, none of the R-Line’s nonfunctional arrogance extends to the powertrain, which is the same as other Volkswagen Atlas versions, a 235-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four or a 276-hp 3.6-liter V-6. All use an eight-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive in four-cylinder design while 4MOTION all-wheel drive is elective with the V-6.
No pricing available, 2018 Atlas R-Line will make its entry at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
