2018 VW Atlas Models Get Price Bump

After making the Tiguan more affordable in the United States last week, Volkswagen has now done the exact opposite to the larger Atlas.

The price increase makes the entry-level model $250 more expensive than before, reports CarsDirect, as it can be had from $31,675, moving further away from the base Tiguan and its $25,495 starting price.

Previously available from $33,590, the Atlas SE now costs at least $34,765, or $7,115 more than the equivalent Tiguan, whereas the top-of-the-line trim, called Atlas SEL Premium, moves extremely close to the $50,000 mark, with a $49,415 starting price, or $925 more than before.

Despite having to pay more for a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, customers won't get any new standard features, so ticking some options from the list, such as the four-wheel drive system, panoramic sunroof, or garage door opener, will bump the price furthermore.

Powering Volkswagen's 7-seater SUV is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 235hp and 258lb-ft (350Nm) of torque, or a 3.6-liter V6 with 276hp and 266lb-ft (361Nm) of torque. Both units can be had with AWD.
