We already know the almost definitive image of the 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport Concept after the presentation of a prototype that is practically already a reality.
If a few days ago was presented with some illustrations recreated by computer, today we have seen as a prototype very close to the final version of Serie. So close that you can expect minimal changes. Taking advantage of the new York Hall 2018, Volkswagen has shown the Atlas Cross Sport concept, a model that will reach the market possibly in 2019… and which, it seems, aspires to become a more economical rival of the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupé.
So far, yes, we will have to make sure to see this new SUV coupe in pictures, since its market will be the United States. And, as we told you a few days ago, the planned project for Europe of a VW Tiguan coupe has been cancelled for the time being. However, it seems that this plan will have a place in North America in view of the first images we have known of this Atlas Cross Sport concept.

And yet the length reaches 4.84 meters. It’s a product by and for Americans. Finally, to increase your dose of aggression, the entire front grille is used in this prototype as daytime lighting. Inside, the absolute protagonism for digital systems, with its 12.3-inch screen.
Developed by and for the United States, but also on the MQB platform that gives place to Tiguan, Seat Ateca or Skoda Kodiaq, this new variant of the VW Atlas will also be manufactured in the brand plant in Tennessee, where Volkswagen has already invested in the last few years M nothing Enos than 900 million of dollars for its manufacture, that of the Atlas and that of the American variant of the Passat.
