I didn’t really catch how low those are when integrated into the body line there - now that you mention it, I can’t unsee it, thanks :laugh: but I really like it overall, and think they’ll do well with it.The door handles being that low looks so stupid. And everything about it still reeks of cost cutting. But it's a good effort compared to the regular Atlas.
It's still a concept so it that could still change. I don't really see the other cost cutting that he's saying it reeks off, unless I'm just not seeing it.I didn’t really catch how low those are when integrated into the body line there - now that you mention it, I can’t unsee it, thanks :laugh: but I really like it overall, and think they’ll do well with it.
I guess the easiest comparison to make is the difference between the Ford Explorer and Ford Edge.
The rise of electric cars will once again make big ass radiator grilles seem silly.
As someone else said, there's way more to it. For example, I don't think a regular Atlas would fit in my garage with all the other stuff I have in it. Atlas CS would comfortably. We are only planning to have 2 kids... as long as the trunk can hold all our baby stuff we don't need a 3rd row.
http://www.vw.com/models/tiguan/Hells yes. Was pissed the Tiguan wasn’t coming here but this is in line with the general design so happy to see something like it come to the states. Next vehicle for sure.
Yuuuup. Mercedes has been showing stuff like that off for the past couple years; look at the EQ concepts they've released.It might not be full width "light bars", but I can certainly imagine LED screens that have an image of a traditional grille, that can also display messages to other drivers/pedestrians. This would also be useful for announcing the arrival of ride-share cars, food delivery, etc....
The Cross Sport Concept is only 8" shorter in length than the current Atlas, and it's an inch wider.As someone else said, there's way more to it.

Plus to me, as vain and superficial as this is, 3 row crossovers and minivans represent complete submission to me. A 2 row with some concessions for style says "I have a family and value practicality but style still matters". Whether or not that's dumb or pointless is up for debate, but to me something like the regular Atlas might as well be a school bus. There are exceptions of course like the CX-9 but that is still too big for us
That could easily make all the difference in the world. As I noted recently my business partner had to cut out a section of drywall to get his F150 in his garage and can only park it in there because of the rear proximity sensors letting him know how close he is. Without that he would've cracked the drywall a long time ago, perhaps done more damage.The Cross Sport Concept is only 8" shorter in length than the current Atlas, and it's an inch wider.
I'm not disagreeing that it's a far more aesthetically pleasing vehicle than the regular Atlas, but if I'm conceding to needing a vehicle this big already, I'd hate to lose the functionality of the vertical cargo space that the squareback SUV shape offers over the fastback.
probably online browsing for The North Face goods.Should someone check on Turbio? There's been at least 3 VW threads this week and he hasn't stopped in to do his normal shtick of "VW is terrible as a business and the design is too boring and everyone should buy a Subaru instead".
Seriously. Where is he?
I literally lol'd. :beer:America: RAWWWWR VW IS EVIL. TDI DESTROY ENVIRONMENT. ANGER. RAGE. ARGHHHH. DESTROY ALL VW.
VW: Okay, we'll stop making TDIs. Here are 3 new bigger SUVs instead to replace the previous Tiguan and the Touareg which you guys thought were too small. They're... uhh... yeah. You can have them.
Dude. I know why you feel the way you do. The new T-Reg is amazing. I would love one. I loved the v8 gen 1. I loved my friends mk'3' tdi.Just give us the ****ing Touareg :facepalm:
Yeah, the back end treatment on the Cross Sport gives a sportier profile to it. I like it too.It's OK if they don't release the touareg here. This Atlas Cross Sport is good looking enough to take top model SUV for a while. Not the current Atlas though. The current Atlas is indeed quite ugly.
