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.

Fair, but by comparison the Highlander sold about 244K units in 2018, Explorer sold 250K, Pilot sold about 160K, etc. Relative to the popularity of the segment, that's quite low.

Closing the thread because it seems no point in discussing this anymore.
