What is the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas R-Line?
When you think of the new Volkswagen Atlas, you probably think of a family-friendly large SUV that steals the show when it comes thundering down the road….and the last thing you would associate it with is the race track. Volkswagen knows that the Atlas is so much more than just a family vehicle, that’s why they are giving it performance-inspired treatments via the R-Line package.
What Comes with the Volkswagen R-Line Treatment for the 2018 Atlas?
Available on the Atlas SE and SEL trims only, the R-Line will consist of various exterior and interior design elements that work to give it an even more dynamic appearance. The new trim package augments the Chattanooga-built SUV’s sportiness and helps to show off its full potential. The Atlas R-Line comes with the following features and accenting:
- 20-inch aluminum-alloy twin-spoke wheels
- R-Line badging
- Unique front and rear bumpers
- R-Line side skirts
- An R-Line logo on the start screen of Volkswagen’s Modular Infotainment Platform (MIB II).
- R-Line steering wheel clip
- Stainless-steel sport pedal covers
Just like the standard Atlas models, the R-Line Atlas models will come with your choice of two engines; a four-cylinder TSI® turbo or a 3.6-liter V6 engine. Both engines then come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Volkswagen’s advanced 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system is available on V6 engine R-Line models.
While the exact date of R-Line availability for the Atlas is unknown, the R-Line package goes on sale later in the year.
