Reliable, plenty of cargo and passenger space.
I got the SE V6, which handles very well. This is not a fast car from 0-to 60 in x seconds, because it is a heavy vehicle, but once it reaches cruise speed it is very responsive with good acceleration to pass comfortably in the freeway and will not slow you down in hill country. One minor detail was the phone wireless charging, not charging properly, I just removed the rubber cover, and it works perfectly, so I guess it is too thick. The wireless infotainment requires few seconds to get properly connected, so just be patient, because once it is connected it works just fine. After backing up, the camera stays on for few seconds, after switching to drive mode, but this dissapears once it it reaches 20mph , and at the same time the doors autolock. It is a nice safety feature. Mine has the ceiling moonroof, which is very nice. It is a reliable vehicle with proper handling for it's size with plenty of cargo and passenger space.
Fantastic car for the money
Car is a gem. Lots of room, handles well and has the power I need. I have the V6. When compared to the other cars of its size I drove including BMW, Mercedes and Audi. You get a car that has the German quality and sophisticated engineering yet saves thousands. I love it.
Big Design, Little Benefits - Bad Purchase
This is the least favorite car I’ve ever owned. The fuel economy is trending at 17 mpg and the gas tank is extremely small this leaves me in line for gas several times a week. The finishes on the car are of poor quality. The chrome detail on my head light is bubbling and I now found out it’s chrome foil. The dealership said it cannot be repaired so the light would have to be replaced at a $1300 cost. Since it’s a cosmetic detail, I’m certainly not fixing it.
Better Tham I Expected
Better than I expected. Great looks and tech. Plenty of room in the backseat and overall. A bit of interior plastic is a small disappointment but comfortable ride even with the 20” wheels. If you don’t need a third row the cross sport is the way to go! A value!
My Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport
