      I'm 95% sure that I will be buying my wife an Atlas R-line VR6 with my TDI buyback cash later this year. I'm a sucker for blue so I'm wondering if anyone has any real-world pics of the new Tourmaline Blue Metallic on an Atlas yet. The cgi examples on VW.com are a bit underwhelming...

      OT, but my brother saw the R-line in the flesh yesterday and sent me this picture...

      White will be option #2

      Did he see this at D.C. Auto Show? If so, I'll head there this week and check them out. Think I still might buy a Touraeg TDI Executive though.

      Is it just me or does the Atlas look like a Grand Cherokee lookalike??

      Yes he did

      Yeah, I can see the resemblance from some angles but it's a good looking vehicle in its own right, imo. MQB-based, three rows, vr6 and 4motion is a winning combination for me regardless of looks.

      Slightly related but I love that for both the Atlas and Tiguan were getting some color choices back. Hopefully the localized production starts to bring more color across the lineup.

      What does MQB based mean? I guess what it really comes down to is why the huge price difference between this an Touraeg. Touraeg is smaller, no 3rd row, and almost the size of an Audi Q5 but for ridiculous high price. I want Atlas but will only lease, not buy.

      MQB is VW/Audi's new modular architecture. It underpins the Mk7 Golf/GTI/R, upcoming Tiguan, Audi A3/S3 etc.

      This rear view pic doesn't show the bulging out on rear over tires that you see in some of their other pics. That was particularly the part which turned me off but in this rear view pic it's straight and smooth which looks awesome

      So glad that the Atlas is down at the DC Auto show. I'm heading down there tomorrow to check it out. I wonder if they have the 2018 Tiguan on display too?

      Cool. Please take some photos and post them here! I'm interested in all the details that the standard stock photos don't cover. Rear seat climate control, spare tire space, key fob, etc.. if they have any real VW employees there, try to get info on when they're going to release all the US trim and pricing info. Canada's has already been released.

      Negative. That's what my brother was hoping to see but they didn't have one.

      If I heard correctly, and I will double check today, the entire lineup starting with the Atlas.

      Also, the Atlas Weekend Edition will be revealed in the flesh at the Chicago Auto Show at Noon on Friday. The new Tiguan will also be at the show which opens to the public on Saturday.

      I will post pictures when I get them.

      Sweet, if true. I'm almost positive that we're going with the Tiguan to replace my 2-door MKV GTI. This makes it that much more attractive since we plan to keep our next car for as long as possible.

      I was thinking of a crossover next year myself, and if they up the warranty they may have just won me back.

      Thanks for the info and the forthcoming pics! If the 6 year warranty does pan out, it's the clearest indication yet that VW is starting to get this market. Makes my decision to get an Atlas much, much easier.
