I'm not disagreeing that it's a far more aesthetically pleasing vehicle than the regular Atlas, but if I'm conceding to needing a vehicle this big already, I'd hate to lose the functionality of the vertical cargo space that the squareback SUV shape offers over the fastback.
I personally have absolutely no use for a third row now, so I'd take the shorter package even if they were the same price.

That being said, the Atlas is helping VW stay in the US and if it takes killing the Treg and bringing more Atlas based SUV's and trucks, I'm all for it.
If the onslaught of SUV's and etc push the sales numbers to (and I'm pulling this number out of the air) 600k a year consistly, they might be willing to take a loss and bring back the T-reg. Meanwhile, skip the Atlas and get a Atlas Sport or what ever they call it. It's a great looking SUV.
The BLOATED ATLAS SPORT or whatever they f*cking call it will never even come close to my T1 V8 capability. My wife has this Airstream fetage and it looks as if we may pull the trigger. The ATLAS will be unable to tow the Airstream model we want
Looks as if I'm hanging on to my V8 for the next couple of years as we all wait to see if Volkswagen brings the Touareg back to the North American Market. What a ****ing mistake on Volkswagen! Really dissapointed with Volkwagen!
If not, I'm sure BMW or M-B have something that'll do the trick, since you seem committed to staying with a German brand.
At least he isn't calling for the Amarok to be sold here.
If you can go easy on the options, the price-differential isn't as big as one might think, and IME the Cayenne is quite a capable and durable vehicle. Not sure what you'd need to tow that airstream, but if the Cayenne checks out, that would be one good looking setup.
This past summer I test drove a new Touareg at VW's Wolfsburg off road course. Fully loaded they cost $90k to $100k, still want one?
