A smaller, more stylish version of the standard Volkswagen Atlas with a raked roofline and unique design touches, the 2022 Atlas Cross Sport is yet another option in VW’s expanding crossover SUV lineup.

The Cross Sport is shorter in length than its three-row sibling, and it doesn’t have quite as much cargo space. But the Cross Sport does set itself apart from the regular Atlas with its emphasis on style.

The Cross Sport offers two available engines: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (235 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque) and a 3.6-liter V6 (276 hp, 266 lb-ft). Both are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and, depending on the model, either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

The SE is the new base model and starts off with:

LED headlights
Proximity keyless entry and push-button start
18-inch alloy wheels
Power liftgate
Dual-zone automatic climate control
Power-adjustable driver’s seat
Heated front seats
Simulated leather upholstery
6.5-inch touchscreen
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
Six-speaker sound system
Digital gauge cluster display


Standard safety features on all Atlas Cross Sport models include:

Forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
Blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert (warns you if a vehicle is in your blind spot during a lane change or while reversing)


SE with Technology trim introduces some features:

V6 engine becomes available
20-inch wheels
Hands-free liftgate
8-inch touchscreen
Wireless connectivity for CarPlay and Android Auto
Remote start
Adaptive cruise control (maintains a driver-set distance between the Cross Sport and the car in front)
115-volt household-style power outlet
Wireless charging pad
Front and rear parking sensors


SEL A more tech-savvy trim level that makes the Atlas Cross Sport a borderline luxury vehicle:

Adaptive front lighting (provides better illumination in curves)
Panoramic sunroof
Ambient interior lighting
Heated steering wheel
Larger digital instrument display
Integrated navigation system
Power-adjustable front passenger seat


The SEL also comes with the full IQ.Drive suite of semi-automated driving features, adding:

Lane keeping assist (steers the Atlas Cross Sport back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)
Blind-spot intervention (automatically steers the car back into its lane if you try to change lanes while a car is in the vehicle’s blind spot)
Emergency assist (with adaptive cruise control and lane keeping system active, can detect an unresponsive driver and bring the Tiguan to a safe stop)


SEL R-Line Takes the features from the SEL and adds R-Line design:

Sportier exterior styling
20-inch alloy wheels in dark graphite finish


SEL R-Line Black Enhances the SEL R-Line with black accents and unique design touches:

20-inch alloy wheels in black finish
Dark-tinted headlights and taillights
Blacked-out exterior trim and badging


SEL Premium R-Line The top-of-the-line Atlas Cross Sport is fully loaded with:

V6 engine and all-wheel drive are standard
21-inch wheels

Ventilated front seats
Heated rear seats
Rear side window sunshades
Fender premium sound system
