Meet the 2025 VW Atlas Cross Sport in Albuquerque, NM


Blending the roominess and style of the larger Volkswagen Atlas SUV with a sportier look, the 2025 VW Atlas Cross Sport in Albuquerque, NM is an outstanding two-row midsize crossover SUV that has quickly earned top reviews and praise among auto experts and customers. If you and your family are shopping for a new ride, here are some of the main features that will get you excited to visit us and check out the new Atlas Cross Sport up close. 

What’s New for 2025 

Launched for the 2020 model year, the Atlas Cross Sport is still a relatively new offering from Volkswagen. It received a significant design refresh for 2024, including reworked front and rear ends, revised headlights and taillights, a new engine (with more power than the prior engine),  premium interior materials, and new standard safety technology. With rumors of big changes coming for 2026, we anticipate few, if any, changes for the 2025 models. 

Power and Performance

Now equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that provides 269 horsepower, 273 lb-ft of torque, and  more fuel efficiency than the previous 6-cylinder, the 2025 Atlas Cross Sport is available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. There are five trim levels, each paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, rating an EPA-estimated 20/27 MPG city/highway. 

You can adjust this SUV’s performance with Driving Mode Selection and control gear changes with the Tiptronic steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters. The available 4MOTION all-wheel drive directs torque to the rear wheels for better acceleration and stability when needed. 



Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE promises to heighten your awareness and reaction times with technology that monitors your car’s position, trajectory, and surroundings. It’s no surprise that every new Atlas Cross Sport is equipped with Auto Emergency Braking with Cyclist & Pedestrian Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Assist, and other functions for navigating the busy streets of Albuquerque.

2025 VW Atlas Cross Sport in Albuquerque, NM: Comfort

Setting itself apart from its similarly named VW Atlas sibling by dropping the third row of seats in favor of a sleeker look, the Atlas Cross Sport has more room for passengers and more room for cargo behind the rear seats. The Atlas may be best for larger families, but the Atlas Cross Sport is more suitable for retirees, younger couples, and families with one or two children.

With ample seating for five, the Atlas Cross Sport offers nearly 42 inches of legroom in the front seats and 40.4 inches in the back row- much more than its rivals. And even with all seats occupied, you’ll still have a cavernous 40.3 cubic feet of cargo room for your gear or shopping purchases. What’s more, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats allow you to expand the cargo space to a maximum of 77.8 cubic feet if you need more.

In addition to so much space to stretch out in, the Atlas Cross Sport adds to your comfort with plush seating and a cool, serene cabin. Every trim level provides power-adjustable lumbar support and heating for the driver, which is handy on those long trips. You’ll also stay nice and cool, even on those sweltering 100° days, thanks to the Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control and ventilated V-Tex leatherette front seats. 

Infotainment and Connectivity

Every version of the Atlas Cross Sport comes equipped with Volkswagen’s signature App-Connect software, with wireless smartphone integration, wireless device charging, a 12-inch touchscreen, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and lots of USB ports. A popular option for music lovers is the Harman-Kardon premium audio system with amplifier and subwoofer.
