Unpacking Value: The 2024 Volkswagen Atlas at Military AutoSource Lakenheath Commissary


Introducing the refreshed 2024 Volkswagen Atlas, available at [Military AutoSource Lakenheath Commissary](INSERT LINK TO HOME PAGE). This year's model is not only more compelling in terms of value but also comes stacked with numerous features even at the entry-level SE trim.

Stacked Features in the SE Trim:

The 2024 Volkswagen Atlas SE trim offers an exceptional array of standard features, making it an attractive option for value-seeking customers. Notable features include ventilated front seats, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and adaptive cruise control, all of which were optional in the previous models.

However, it's worth noting that the traditional control buttons have been replaced with touch-sensitive ones in this year's Atlas. While these new controls undoubtedly add a sleek, modern touch to the interior, they require a bit more attention to use while driving.

Upgrade for Technology and Style:

If you're inclined to further enhance your driving experience, consider upgrading to the SE with Technology. This trim not only offers a significant aesthetic upgrade but also introduces practical features like a hands-free power liftgate and parking sensors. These additions are crucial, especially when manoeuvring this sizable SUV into tight parking spots.

A Trim for Every Preference:

The 2024 Volkswagen Atlas is available in four primary trim levels: SE, SE with Technology, SEL, and the fully loaded SEL Premium R-Line. Additionally, customers have the option to choose the new Peak Edition sub-trim for both the SE with Technology and SEL levels. This new edition introduces off-road-themed features and designs, catering to the adventurous driver.

Engine and Performance:

Each trim of the 2024 Atlas comes equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, boasting 269 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain guarantees a smooth and robust driving experience. All trims except for SE and SE with Technology offer standard all-wheel drive, providing additional stability and control on various terrains.

Feature Highlights Across Trims:

SE: This base trim offers 18-inch alloy wheels, adaptive LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors, keyless entry, and ignition, among other standard features. It also boasts advanced driver aids like adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with automatic braking.

SE with Technology: Upgrading to this trim introduces 20-inch wheels, hands-free power liftgate, front and rear LED light bars, and illuminated VW badges.
Peak Edition SE with Technology: This off-road-themed sub-trim includes all features from the SE with Technology and adds 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires and adjustable ambient cabin lighting.

SEL: The SEL trim builds off the SE with Technology, introducing upgraded headlights, a panoramic sunroof, heated second-row seats, and an integrated navigation system.

Peak Edition SEL: This edition is a unique combination of the SEL and Peak Edition features, with distinctive wheels, exterior trim, and upholstery.

SEL Premium R-Line: As the top-of-the-line option, this trim offers 21-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, and an automated parking system.

Customize Your Seating:

All trims except the SE can be customized with second-row captain's chairs, reducing the seating capacity from seven to six but offering a more comfortable and spacious seating arrangement for passengers.
