A look at the latest outdoor adventure-mobiles, ranging from compact crossovers to three-row SUVs to heavy-duty pickups
VOLKSWAGEN: ATLAS CROSS SPORT
Introduced in 2020, the Atlas Cross Sport is a fastback-styled, mid-sized SUV that still offers plenty of cargo room, despite its rakish lines and sloping roof. The optional panoramic sunroof also adds to the sense of interior space. Living at the upscale end of this category, this vehicle leans more toward comfort and handling, and is less suitable for off-roading than similar five-passenger SUVs. Notably for 2021, the Atlas Cross Sport has been updated with a new infotainment system, and additional driver aids.
