The Volkswagen Atlas gets a few cosmetic updates for 2021, most notably a more aggressive-looking front fascia complete with redesigned headlights. The same four- and six-cylinder engines remain, but all-wheel drive now comes standard. Depending on your selection, you can expect to tow either 2,000 or 5,000 pounds. As a three-row midsize SUV, the Atlas can accommodate up to seven people. If you want a sportier variant, albeit with two fewer seats, check out the Atlas Cross Sport.
