  • Fourth year in a row that the three-row #suv has received a PARENTS magazine honor for its family-friendly features

Herndon, VA — #volkswagen of America, Inc. is proud to announce that PARENTS magazine has named the 2021 #volkswagen #atlas to its list of Best Family Cars 2021 as the best three-row #suv.

It shows that #atlas provides families with the features, capability and value they need most.”
