Why Baby Boomers Love the Volkswagen Atlas
Baby Boomers have a great deal of affection for their cars. After all, they got you where you needed to go and gave you a lot of fun memories along the way. When you think of Volkswagen, you might think of iconic cars like the VW Beetle, which you affectionately called “The Bug” in your college days. Or you might picture pop culture symbols like the VW Bus, the backdrop for flower children from across the country you knew throughout the turbulent 1960’s era. But at this stage of the game, with kids heading to college and retirement looming, is there still a Volkswagen made for you? Well, have you considered a Volkswagen SUV?
That’s right – we’re talking about the Volkswagen Atlas! This brand-new addition to Volkswagen’s line up was released as the 2018 model last year and is ready for grown-up flower children like you in your life now.
This spacious SUV offers you everything you’ve come to expect in a Volkswagen: quality, luxury, and style. Apple CarPlay means you have access to your music, your apps, and your contacts hands-free while driving. The Atlas also offers a VW Digital Cockpit featuring all of the instruments that will make driving it a pure pleasure. There’s the potential for almost 100 cubic feet of rear cargo space for hauling bikes and camping gear. There are three benches of seats, and the second row is spacious enough for three child safety seats! Triplet grandchildren on the way, anyone?
The Atlas engine definitely has enough get-up-and-go to get you where you need to be. One option is a turbocharged four-cylinder dream, outfitted with 235 horsepower. Or choose a 276 horsepower model with 266 torque!
Obviously, the Atlas is designed to carry all of the people in your life, and Volkswagen wants to keep them all safe. In fact, Volkwagen received the IIHS “Top Safety Pick” rating after high scores in all five “crashworthiness” tests and they also got a “Superior” rating on a front crash prevention test.
