How fuel efficient is the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas? 

Buying a new SUV is great for carting people or cargo around, but in some cases, it can be disastrous for your wallet when you stop at the gas pump. Unless you have super cool friends (or particularly precocious children) who always pay you back for gas, you’re the one throwing away money just because you have a vehicle that can fit seven people. If you’re driving the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, you won’t have to spend as much time worrying about all the gas you’re going through.  

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is everything you could want in a midsize SUV. You have plenty of interior space for cargo, a wide array of technology features, and excellent fuel economy. Despite the 2018 Atlas being a larger vehicle with a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, it still achieves an estimated fuel economy that is better than others in the same class. With 25 miles per gallon on the highway and 18 mpg in the city, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas will have you spending less time at the pump, and more time doing the things you want to do.

One of the reasons the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has such great fuel economy is because of the engine. The standard Atlas, which will be made available at a later point, has a 2.0L Turbo four-cylinder engine with 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It hasn’t been rated for fuel economy since it is yet to be released. The other engine, which is standard on all other trim levels of the 2018 Atlas, is the one that is providing such great fuel economy. This engine is a 3.6L V6 that offers 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.
