Best SUV you can buy

I have owned the Atlas SE 2024 for 6 months and loved it 100% the digital controls is like a smart phone, you will get used to it once you know where everything is at. The best car I have purchased in 30 years

5.0

Don’t miss out.

Our 24 Atlas SEL rline premium is more than we expected. The fuel efficiency and premium comfort makes this actually a great value with how expensive some of the other cars are.

2024 Volkswagen Atlas review: Our expert's take

By Joe Bruzek

The verdict: The 2024 Volkswagen Atlas adds a surprising number of standard features you wouldn’t expect in this class and a notable boost to the interior’s quality, though there’s one potential deal breaker.

Versus the competition: The Atlas pairs its gargantuan interior with better interior quality and device-pairing features for 2024, areas where the Atlas began to trail competitors over the years.

When it launched for the 2018 model year, the Volkswagen Atlas three-row SUV was immediately one of our favorite family SUVs thanks to its roominess and features for the money. The Atlas received Cars.com’s Best of 2018 award and was named Family Car of the Year multiple times, mantles that the deservedly excellent Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade have since taken over.

For 2024, the Atlas is ready for another go with a glowed-up interior, a significant boost to its standard technology features and a new standard engine, improvements that address many of the reasons why it’s taken a backseat in recommendations to Hyundai and Kia. Despite one potentially major annoyance, the Atlas is a much more compelling option for 2024. For this review, I focus on the three-row, six- or seven-occupant Atlas, but an Atlas Cross Sport with two rows and room for five also is available; it’s mostly the same updated vehicle with minor tweaks to packaging and pricing.

The Atlas’ previous interior was no-nonsense, utilitarian and sparsely appointed. I don’t think anyone looked at it and went, “Oh, that’s nice.” No, it was more about its space efficiency, being significantly larger on the inside than competitors without being significantly larger on the outside. It also offered smart functions and features for families.
