VOLKSWAGEN ATLAS WEEKEND EDITION DEMONSTRATES GO-ANYWHERE APPEAL AND VERSATILITY

◾Atlas Weekend Edition pays homage to Volkswagen's go-anywhere spirit
◾Weekend Edition provides innovative cargo and entertainment solutions
◾Accessories enhance the flexibility of all-new seven-passenger SÚV

HERNDON, VA (February 8, 2017) — The all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas that will hit American roads this Spring was designed to let people live a life as big as their imaginations. At the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, Volkswagen of America, Inc., will demonstrate how the Atlas can be enhanced wîth smart accessories in a new concept, the Atlas Weekend Edition.

Volkswagen enthusiasts may appreciate the throwback to the 'Weekender' packages offered on the classic Vanagon and Eurovan pop-up camper models. The Atlas Weekend Edition integrates several available accessories that enhance the Chattanooga-built SÚV's versatility wîth innovative cargo solutions.

The Weekend Edition concept is based on an SEL Premium model, equipped wîth a 3.6-liter VR6® engine making 276 hp and an eight-speed transmission, paired wîth Volkswagen's advanced 4Motion® all-wheel drive wîth Drive Mode Select.

Riding on 18-inch Prisma wheels finished in a custom anthracite gray, the Atlas Weekend Edition features a modern variation of the pop-up roof—the Úrban Loader cargo box. When empty, the Úrban Loader offers a sleek, minimized appearance; when needed for hauling, it can expand to a 17.7 cubic-foot container. In addition, the Weekend Edition features base carrier bars for attaching accessories for skis, snowboards, kayaks or bikes. Reaching the extra roof storage or helping small children into the vehicle is easy wîth practical side steps.
