With the Atlas Cross Sport, Volkswagen takes the coupe SUV concept, which was previously only found in the luxury segment, and offers it up to mainstream buyers at dealerships like the Pismo Beach Volkswagen dealer. Think of the 2022 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport as a version of the regular Atlas with a sleek, coupe-like profile and a sloping roofline. Now remove the third row, and you’ll get the picture. While the 2022 Atlas Cross Sport is smaller than the Atlas, it still provides ample space for passengers and cargo. We’ll look at the Atlas Cross Sport’s different trim levels and see what each one brings to the table.
