Hi there! Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jessica and I'm a new Atlas SEL R-Line owner, first time VW owner in fact! I've had it about a week now and I love everything about it. I really wish it was the SEL Premium but unfortunately that isn't available with R-Line for some strange reason and I had to have R-Line!! Hate the black trim around the bottom so R-Line all the way! I also work at a VW dealership in Maine so if anyone has any questions about Atlas as far as product info and sales go I may be able to help!

Hello and welcome! I have the SEL Premium all Black. Love it too as does my whole fam.

Since you work at a dealership have you heard anything about when the Arteon will hit the sales floor? Still have another VW to upgrade. :)

Congrats on getting an Atlas. It still surprises me by how many of these are being sold. VW wanted to make more north american focused models and it seem they hit it on the nail with this.

What other vehicles were you looking at before finally deciding on the Atlas?

The dealership I work at is a VW and Ford dealership so I was initially looking at a Ford Explorer Limited. I loved that vehicle also and was so close to buying it. With the rebates and my employee pricing, it was an awesome deal. Plus I had owned two previous Fords, and Escape and an Edge and they were both great vehicles. But, a few days before I was due to turn in my lease and get the Explorer, the Atlas R-Line showed up on the lot and I fell in love with the style of the exterior. The Atlas doesn't have as many features as the Explorer so that is one thing that I sacrificed but the look more than makes up for it. I only wish I coulda got the R-Line on the SEL Premium. I do miss my real leather seats already.

I'm not really sure about the Arteon but I'll try to find out for you. I deal mostly with our other brand, Ford, but I'll ask a VW specialist to see if they have heard anything.

Jessica, I have a 2.0L SEL Atlas, have you heard of any other 2.0L SEL's out there, I was told mine was the only one the factory built.

VW's website suggests it will be a 2019 product. With the round of autoshows coming up it will likely be announced at one of them. I have my bet on the Detroit show

Congrats! I also think the black skirts and wheel arches are a poor design decision but in the end, we went with the SEL Premium for the digital cockpit and added safety features. Just took delivery yesterday!
