2022 VW Atlas Cross Sport vs. 2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport

The even sportier version of the 2022 Atlas, the 2022 Atlas Cross Sport takes northern Colorado driving to the next level. Families will appreciate the updates that the 2022 model year of the SUV has been given compared to its 2021 version. Removing the base S trim from the lineup, Boulder customers will find the SE trim of the 2022 Volkswagen as their new go-to baseline option. New options on select trims of the Atlas Cross Sport add to the already exciting SUV.  


Directly imported from the 2021 Atlas Cross Sport, both the standard turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine and the available 3.6L V6 make any adventure across northern Colorado enjoyable in the 2022 version of the SUV. Whether customers have access to 235 horsepower from the base engine or 276 from the V6, there is plenty of performance to get families all around town without hassle. Effortlessly handled by the eight-speed automatic transmission, every ounce of performance is maximized for enjoyment and overall capability to handle any road condition. Both the standard FWD handling and the available AWD option make navigating Boulder or anywhere else in northern Colorado a more confident experience all year long. Customers who opt for the SEL trim level of the 2022 Atlas Cross Sport get AWD as the standard drivetrain.  

Exterior & Interior Features

A new eight-inch digital display cluster is now standard on the base SE trim level of the 2022 Atlas Cross Sport. For even greater versatility and convenience, the SE trim can have a trailer hitch attached if the customer opts for the available Technology package. Not only does the mid-range SEL trim get new 20-inch wheels, but it also comes with a new trim option. Known as the SEL R-Line Black, this version of the Atlas Cross Sport is adorned with a completely blacked-out exterior for a sensationally imposing appearance on the road. This is the ideal choice for the family who appreciates making a firm statement to those around them.  

Safety Features

Volkswagen always keeps its modern vehicles up to date with the latest safety and driver-assistance technology available. The 2022 Atlas Cross Sport is no exception as it provides the same array of excellent features as was present in the 2021 model year of the SUV. The front side of the SUV is highly monitored and protected through both Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking technology. With both Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitoring equipped as standard features as well, the same type of protection is found with the road behind the vehicle. When equipped with the available Adaptive Cruise Control system, drivers will find that their longest highway excursions are much more manageable thanks to the speed-related elements of the drive being handled by the SUV.
