Volkswagen Atlas is the new large SUV from the German manufacturer. It was presented recently, and in principle only be sold in the united States and China. Although it seems that this model of seven-seater could reach other places soon. The brand would be considering the possibility of bring it also to Europe. For the moment the only thing confirmed is that it will be available in Russia throughout 2017.
Elmar-Marius Licharz, product manager at Volkswagen, has dropped that the Atlas could have presenia in some countries of the old continent. To get here, what to do with the engine 2.0 TDI of 190 HP, a mechanism more suited to the european standards. Do not forget that in the united States is only available with two petrol engines, a 2.0 TSI with 238CV and a VR6 naturally aspirated 3.6-liter with 280 HP.
Though still there is considerable controversy on the arrival of the automobile Atlas Europe. Although it sits on the MQB platform, this SUV measured 5,03 meters long, 1.98 a wide and 1.77 meters high; which means a size too large for european tastes. Reach would have to coexist with the current Volkswagen Touareg, although it would be a step above.
we will Have expect to confirm if it finally comes or not our continent. In any case, the expansion of the Volkswagen Atlas to other markets appears safe and already speaks of its landing in the Middle East in 2017. In any case, the SUV seven-seater will continue to be manufactured in the factory Chattanooga, Tennessee (united States) and from there exported to the rest of the markets that will be incorporating.
