The Atlas Cross Sport retains its sporty exterior styling. For 2023, Volkswagen is making one minor equipment change: The SE with Technology trim now gets the 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro gauge cluster standard.

Standard equipment for all trims includes heated front seats, leatherette seats, LED lighting, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, automatic emergency braking, a blind spot warning system and rear cross-traffic alert. Heated rear seats, leather seats, 20- or 21-inch wheels and a hands-free rear hatch are available. Volkswagen’s IQ.Drive semi-autonomous driver-assistance technology suite is also optional and includes lane-centering steering, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control and emergency assist.

A 235-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder continues as the Atlas Cross Sport’s base engine. Meanwhile, a 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 276 hp is available in the SE with Technology and SEL trims; it comes standard in the SEL Premium R-Line. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2023 Atlas Cross Sport with the four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive gets an EPA-rated 21/25/23 mpg city/highway/combined, with all-wheel-drive versions losing one mile in all three categories at 20/24/22 mpg. V-6-equipped variants with both FWD and AWD come in the lowest at 18/24/20 mpg.
