      Holding out for a new Touareg is like waiting for them to bring back the air cooler cars. It ain't happening.
      I've worked for VW for 27 years and I still fail to see what anyone thinks these products can do that others can't for equal or less money. I'm truly baffled by it. Can anyone explain?

      You can build one on vw.de- a fully loaded one is over 120,000 EUROS! which is nearly $140k. Mind you that car had over 65 options/packages. Everything from matrix lighting to night vision to the 15" innovision cockpit. But still every single thing is an option like on a cayenne and it is insane how expensive it gets. Not to mention it only comes in a dainty diesel v6 right now.

      I read the Chattanooga factory is adding 1K workers and a 3rd shift in preparation for what they're calling the 2 row Atlas. Hopefully by then VW will have solved their V6 shortage.

      Yes, I know that, but typically for the US market they don't offer a la carte but trim packages. Not to mention we get a lower price, no MWST, etc. My 42k Golf R in the states costs 55k Euros in Germany. That is how I came up with my guestimated price.

      Plot twist. The Golf Mk8 will be called the Polo.

      Plot twist. You're going to make a thread asking us to compare this to a C-class, a Tesla and a hybrid Porsche. It will make no sense at all.
      Something witty will be in this exact spot soon.

      The 'reg is decently high-end but not ostentatious, and capable but not enormous. If you take value out of the equation (I don't think it was ever a value option so "equal or less money" isn't really the deal here) there's not much else like. But like I said I do think there's enough overlap with the Cayenne that it's absence from the US market isn't a total loss. It's just not replaced by the Atlas is all.

      The cross section of people who want to tow an Airstream and deal with a $100K VW is basically that dude

      Looking forward to this 2 row. If it comes in hybrid form...........................................

      Don’t exaggerate. They probably have hundreds of customers for a car like that.

      Haven't heard anything about this from the tech side; we're starting to get 2019 Atlas' with the VR6, got a link?

      Seems like the opposite: they appear to be pushing people to the VR6 by limiting the 2.0T to only the S trim level in 2019.

      You two are on point. TIL; people are masochist enough to purchase unreliable VWs to tow with. Bro, that's why Gawd made domestics. Simpler, more reliable and if it does break, everyone from the Big Bad dealer to Cleetus can get parts for it and fix it. Cleetus jus' gon shake his head and adjust his dirty, sweaty ball cap at your fancy German rig.

      Eh...

      Might look better in black. Or maybe in red. But in these shots, it kinda just looks like a white Tiguan.

      Edit: Eh it doesn't look too bad after looking at it some more. But it won't blow people away.

      -different bumper vents

      But the body is pretty much identical to the concept
