Atlas Cross Sport R-Line 0-60 & More Power Specs

We know this is an SUV and not a sports car, but that doesn't mean it can't impress in all the same ways a sports car does. The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport R-Line and its sister car, the VW Atlas, have both been powerful and impressive since their inception. This means that not only will your latest model years impress, but any variant in our selection of the used Atlas will wow you, too.

The SEL R-Line comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine that's mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic. It can go 0-60 in 8.7 seconds. The SEL Premium R-Line with the 3.6L six-cylinder engine decreases that number a bit to just 8.2 seconds. The SE with Technology R-Line can hit the mark in just 7.2 seconds with the turbocharged engine option.

Whether you want the Cross Sport to be your home away from home or you're looking for that super comfy vacation in your driveway that we mentioned earlier, there are interior options that are perfect for you. On the basic SEL R-Line trim, you can choose from three color combinations: Stone Blue and Titan Black, Titan Black, or Dark Beige and Titan Black.

For the room and dimensions, you can seat five passengers and fit up to 77.8 cubic feet of cargo in your vehicle when the rear seats are folded. Otherwise, you can still fit a hefty 40.3 cubic feet inside. There's plenty of headroom, legroom, and shoulder room to go around, so load up the crew or go at it alone and enjoy seemingly infinite space all to yourself.
