Utility Features in the Volkswagen Atlas SUV

The VW Atlas is a three-row VW SUV, and so when it comes to hauling cargo, you won’t always have to hook up the trailer. The spacious and flexible 2019 Atlas interior can handle a payload of 1,396 to 1,495 pounds, depending on the weight of the trim you choose, and even with all seats upright, you can easily fit a full load of groceries for a family:

  • Cargo Volume Behind 3rd Row – 20.6 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind 2nd Row – 55.2 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind 1st Row – 96.8 cubic feet

With so much space to utilize, you’ll be able to haul just about anything you can think of! What’s more, standard 60/40 split-folding 2nd-row seats and 50/50 split-folding 3rd-row seats make it easy to transition between passenger space and cargo space on the fly. Last but not least, you’ll want to check out the secure under-floor cargo storage area, complete with felt lining, beneath the cargo bay.
