Do all 2020 Cross Sport SE w Tech V6 come with the same front license plate bracket?
The bracket is thin and the mount plugs are mis-aligned with the holes in the license plate.
Ideally I am looking for something beefier with the plate recessed into the bracket.

The front license plate is a dealer install. I supervised the install of my front plate, since I bought my car in another state that didn't require a front license plate, but my state does. Most dealers put the front plate bracket on when the car is delivered. In the oicture you showed, the bracket looks look too low.

Barry T -
Thank for the reply.
This was also dealer installed and now I am not likely to change bracket location as holes are now drilled in the bumper facia.
Looking for an adapter or better bracket to replace in same location.

I have a car in Florida which doesn't have a front plate anymore. It is barely noticeable. However, I would go back to the dealer and have them redo it. You have nothing to lose. Another option is there are license brackets that screw into the tow hook on cars. I am not sure about SUV's. The tow hook might be under the car.

Has anyone found the tow hook mounting bracket for this car. Seems like its too new and most sites dont even have the atlas sport listed as an option. Wondering if a different model tow hook dimensions match that of the cross sport 2020?

Just bought my 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport SEL R-Line yesterday. I requested the dealer not drill into the bumper as i was planning to mount the front plate via the front tow ring thread.
1 - Does this vehicle have a bumper port for a tow ring? It looks like it does on the passenger side of the front bumper.
2 - Has anyone mounted a plate in this manner? I am having trouble finding any info on this.
3 - As rayram23 mentioned - Wondering if there is a different model tow hook with dimensions that would match that of the cross sport 2020?

Thanks!

Looks like most of the vehicles does not have such option ... there is a hole but it is not possible to screw into it. If You have no tow hook in a trunk I bet there is no option ... at least for now :( Licence plate holder and plastic ties worked for me :)

It does have a tow eye mounting screw hole. I haven't use this yet since I don't have my permanent Illinois plates. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076VXV4DP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
