The new Volkswagen Atlas Weekend Edition will have a familiar feel for Volkswagen enthusiasts. With available accessories that provide clever cargo solutions, the new SUV is reminiscent of the Volkswagen Weekender packages on the classic Vanagon and Eurovan pop-up camper models.

Kupper Automotive has all the details on it for you here.

Modern version of the pop-up roof

The Atlas Weekend Edition features the Urban Loader Cargo Box, a new twist on the classic pop-up roof. The flexible container expands to 17.7 cubic feet to haul your weekend gear. When not in use, the Urban Loader collapses for a sleek, minimal appearance. The base carrier bars can also accommodate accessories to carry skis, snowboards, bikes, and kayaks. Side steps make the roof easy to reach and make entry into the vehicle easier for kids.

Interior innovations

Clever solutions continue on the inside. A substantial cargo divider behind the second row creates a safe, comfortable, pet-friendly area. The second row is equipped with a tablet mount that will keep passengers connected and entertained, while the available Atlas Media Control feature uses Wi-Fi technology for Android and IOS tablets and smartphones. Other impressive Weekend Edition features include available window and hood deflectors, a heavy-duty trunk liner with seat-back coverage, privacy cargo cover, and more. It’s everything you need for the perfect weekend getaway.

Plenty of power, too

The Atlas rides on 18-inch Prisma wheels and is powered by a 3.6-liter VR6® engine. With an 8-speed transmission and Volkswagen’s advanced 4Motion® all-wheel drive with Drive Mode Select, the Atlas delivers a respectable 276 horsepower, perfect for getting you to wherever your next adventure calls.
