Editor’s note: This Car Seat Check was written in May 2019 about the 2019 Volkswagen. Little of substance has changed with this year’s model. See what’s new for 2020 or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.
The verdict: The new-for-2018 Atlas is roomy, loaded with family-friendly features and excels when it comes to car seats. When equipped with a bench seat, its second row has three sets of Latch anchors and three car seats installed easily and fit well. For this Car Seat Check, we tested a seven-passenger model with a second-row bench seat and a six-passenger Atlas with second-row captain’s chairs. The SUV scored straight A’s across the board with both seating configurations.
Does it fit three car seats? Yes
