2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Trim Levels

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Gray driving past green grass on downhill grade

The year 2020 brought a few new vehicles, including the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. As you probably already know, the Atlas Cross Sport is based on the well-known Volkswagen Atlas, but it is modified to appeal to those who don’t need the third row of seating found in the Atlas.

The Atlas Cross Sport is a little shorter than the full-size Atlas, but it remains a mid-size crossover overall. It was made with three basic trim level concepts that subdivide for a total of eight trims. Each trim is listed in the chart that follows with a couple of each trim’s most signature features highlighted beside it. Use the chart to determine which is closest to your vehicular needs.

Trim Level Comparison Analysis

Since there is no exact middle trim when there are eight total options, the middle trim comes down to either the SEL or the SE with Technology R-Line. Since most of the benefits to the SE with Technology R-Line are visual and aesthetic, many will prefer the SEL as the ideal middle-ground. That doesn’t mean the S is a worthless trim, it still has plenty of modern conveniences and creature comforts as standard features. Younger shoppers will probably make better use of the technology in the SE with Technology and higher trim levels. The highest trim levels do have more luxury features and a stunning Fender® brand sound system, but not everyone will appreciate these features.
