The competition is faster, that should be reason enough. Also, they call it a cross SPORT, where is the sport?!?!?
But being "sporty" doesn't necessary mean fast though. There are plenty of car trims named Sport that just add design pieces with no performance upgrades. Cross Sport just means it's sportier design of the crossover. Doesn't mean it's trying to be an Atlas R.

Some photos from LA from carscoops.com. Is this the first non-R-Line example?
Nah, I posted that non r-line a while ago. They showed it at the Chattanooga plant during the debut.

Here's some non R-Line love from the plant. Noticed it doesn't have REST mode (resid heat) on the climate like the full size. And no fogs whatsoever. Gets a hitch cap.












And more R-Line

I'm not really in the market for an SUV, but I really like this thing. The only thing holding me back from putting it on my list is how slow it is. It needs at least another 50 HP to be passable and another 100 to be head and shoulders above the competition.

It's a shame VW is skipping right to EVs because a PHEV version of this would be great.

Me too.

There's something plastic-y and gross about the whole exterior design.*

*yes i'm aware I sound like a high school girl :eek:
Other than the front and rear bumper caps, and relatively minimal (standard SUV) gray plastic trim, there appears to be no more/no less exterior plastic than most other contemporary vehicles.

I like the exterior design and the massive cargo space but the interior is cheap and lord it seems pricey.

The new Kia Sorento will probably blow it out of the water.

Can't get past the nasty interior plastics in the Atlas. It's especially grim in the back seat. I'm not sure the Cross Sport will address this.
