There are four basic levels to the 11 overall VW Atlas trims, and each is capable of taking your crew far and wide. Here's how the four levels organize all the trims within their own groups and some of the key elements to the S, SE, and SEL categories.

Volkswagen Atlas S

The Volkswagen Atlas S trim puts together versatility and vivacious grit that makes for a car that comes up big from top to bottom. You'll be able to switch from TiptronicĀ® and Sport mode and take advantage of available 4MOTIONĀ® all-wheel drive to take your big car to the big time. An eight-inch display runs the entire show in just a couple of swipes on the dashboard up front, and there are upgrades galore for extra relaxation inside the cabin. Heated front seats, for example, are available to turn every frosty morning into a warm and welcoming beginning.

Volkswagen Atlas SE

The SE trim has a media touchscreen sound system that seamlessly connects the best parts of your smartphone to your car for an in-cabin experience that doesn't require needless phone-fumbling. Make the young ones think you have magic powers when you open up the available power opening and closing liftgate without pressing a button. Add optional 20-inch alloy wheels to complete the look, and secure it all through forward collision warning and emergency braking features that are built to keep your cabin safe.

Volkswagen Atlas SEL

Distinguished luxury dresses the VW Atlas SEL model from bumper to bumper, and a couple of standard features make this trim level an outstanding choice. You don't have to buy a fancy package or sacrifice just to get premium features in your vehicle. Make one of the spaces you spend the most time in each and every day the best it can be through a digital cockpit geared toward the future of technology. In the VW Atlas SEL trim, you'll enjoy features like a wireless smartphone charger that keeps your battery fresh without tangled cords, a panoramic sunroof that connects you to the sky in a couple of seconds, and even adaptive cruise control for those long treks far from home.
