The only thing missing with the Atlas is the diesel.
Don't get me wrong, the V6 is plenty powerful and smooth, but I love the fuel efficiency and torquey drive of a VW diesel. I strongly feel it's a mistake to pull VW's diesels from the US market, we still want them, and we want 50 mpg! Are you listening VOLKSWAGEN? This is a very large country over here, we can't drive electric cars everywhere, in particular a vehicle like the Atlas, which for me is meant to have long legs, and go to far flung places. But, anyway back to reviewing the Atlas as it stands. It drives like a hot knife through butter; for it's size it's nimble as can be, and has very good power. Love the interior, exterior, and the trim package of the SE. If I could change one other thing about the SE Atlas it would be to give it the Fender Audio option as I love that sound (we have a TDI SEL Sportswagon with Fender Audio), but I didn't care for the other SEL options, just the Fender Audio was missing from the SE, which is otherwise an excellent trim package.
