Volkswagen Atlas: Fuel Efficiency Breakdown
Depending on which trim level you pick, you’ll enjoy different fuel efficiency capabilities as well as power.
For example, the configuration that we outlined above is the VW Atlas S trim level. Its 2.0L Turbo engine gives you those fuel efficiency specs as well as up to 235 horsepower. However, with the 3.6L V6 engine, you’ll achieve an EPA-estimated 17 city/23 highway MPG.2 As for the VW Atlas V6 SE, this model rewards its drivers with an EPA-estimated 17 city/24 highway MPG.3 With the 3.6L V6, the Volkswagen Atlas delivers a robust 276 horsepower.
Fuel-Saving Technology in the VW Atlas
What enables these VW Atlas trim levels to offer you such great fuel efficiency? Well, it utilizes fuel-saving technology in many of its performance systems!
Its first notable feature is an 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode. The advent of eight different speeds makes for better efficiency and performance during every mile of the journey.
There’s also 4MOTION® with Active Control, the all-wheel drive technology that tailors your SUV’s performance settings to whatever the road demands, promoting efficiency in a variety of settings.
Tips and Tricks: Improving Your Fuel Economy
The VW Atlas comes equipped with fuel-saving technology to help you stop at the gas pump less, but what can you do as a driver? Here’s a list of six tactics, three for in the garage and three for behind the wheel:
- Keep up with maintenance and repairs.
- Make sure your tires are properly inflated.
- Park somewhere out of the sunlight.
- Don’t carry around any unnecessary weight.
- Take it easy—don’t accelerate too rapidly
- Don’t idle for more than 60 seconds.
Of course, these strategies are just the icing on the cake. The most important thing that you can do is to pick an inherently fuel-efficient vehicle, such as an SUV like the Volkswagen Atlas. Contact us today!
