Why do you say itís a sales failure? Do you know VWís targets?
Last year, the Atlas sold about 80K units in the US. Pretty decent for a manufacturer thatís a niche player in the US.
This car would have the same passenger room for five passengers (wheelbase is the same) just physically shorter so no 3rd row. The Atlas was never cramped.
