2022/2023 Volkswagen Atlas Comparison - Emich VW in Denver, CO

2023 VW Atlas vs. 2022 VW Atlas 

In the 2022 model year of the Atlas SUV, the Volkswagen saw its previously standard S trim level removed to make way for the SE trim as the new baseline option. For the 2023 iteration of the Atlas, Volkswagen has kept the vehicle relatively unchanged. Trim levels above the base SE trim get the excellent 10.25-inch display for the VW Digital Cockpit Pro system as the new standard instrument display for drivers to take advantage of.  

Performance Differences 

A 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine is carried over from the 2022 model year Atlas to the 2023 version of the SUV. This 235-horsepower engine makes getting around Colorado a vibrant and reliable experience for any driver in any situation. Coupled with an excellent eight-speed automatic transmission, the acceleration in the SUV is seamless. Select upper-level trims can be equipped with an even more dynamic V6 engine that offers 276 horsepower and the same transmission. FWD is the returning drivetrain for the standard 2023 Atlas, while 4Motion® is available on select trims as well.  

Interior Differences 

The most noteworthy update made to the 2023 Atlas is found within trim levels above the standard SE version. In these trims, drivers get to take command of the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit Pro system. Through the 10.25-inch display, all relevant and desired information a driver could want while on the go is presented clearly. The best part is that this system becomes the standard implementation for the Atlas in these versions of the SUV.   

Safety & Driver-Assistance Differences 

Modern Volkswagen vehicles are renowned for their diverse array of driver-assistance features. The 2023 Volkswagen Atlas enjoys all the excellent features that were found in the 2022 iteration of the SUV. Autonomous Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning are standard features that ensure the road in front of the SUV is appropriately monitored. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert & Blind Spot Monitoring provide similar coverage to the road alongside and behind the vehicle. Opting for Adaptive Cruise Control makes the Atlas a premier family vacation taker.
