How much Passenger Room does the 2018 VW Atlas have?

September 12th, 2018 by

The new VW Atlas – a new three-row SUV from Volkswagen – is almost here. For families and those who need a larger SUV with decent capabilities, this is a very welcome sight. However, you may be wondering exactly how much room is inside the 2018 VW Atlas. If that’s the case, take a look below and we can go through the total passenger volume of the 2018 VW Atlas as well as its cargo capacity.

2018 VW Atlas Passenger Volume

The 2018 VW Atlas seats seven passengers, at the standard level, in its three rows. Sure, lots of different vehicles out there can boast a similar number of seats, but the Atlas goes above and beyond with its roomy interior to make sure that people are also able to stretch out comfortably. The 2018 VW Atlas has 153 cu.ft. of total passenger volume. Additionally, you can make sure everyone gets even more space to themselves if you choose to add the second-row captain’s seat option to the Atlas. While this does bring your total number of passengers down to six, many find it worth it due to how comfortable the seats are.

Cargo room inside the 2018 VW Atlas

The 2018 VW Atlas is also an excellent choice for those who want to move more than just passengers. The Atlas has 21 cu.ft. of cargo room when every seat in it is occupied, but you can also customize the balance between open seats and room for hauling goods. For instance, you can fold down the 50/50 bench in the third row to make room for more luggage. Still not enough? The 40/20/40 bench in the second row (or captain’s chairs) can also be folded down in any combination, eventually allowing 96.8 cu.ft. of total room.
