      That's what am thinking. I'm considering ordering 3, 1 white, 1 Reflex Silver and 1 Tourmaline Blue. Pick the one I like best and I'm sure the Dealer can flip other 2 right away to people off the street. Not sure that allowed but if they can't show us real life paint samples then how are we to be sure?

      This is the first real world example of the tourmaline blue I have seen - just a 1 second snap at the end but looks pretty nice! - https://www.instagram.com/p/BR35iA6jOv5/

      It was tagged #vwatlas

      My guess is that they are using it to shoot some advert/feature. Tanner Foust seems to have done some work for VW prior.

      Thank you so much! It looks much darker than the cgi examples; I love it. Very similar to my tempest blue jsw

      I think the second one in the row is blue.

      The 2nd one here is definitely a blue - the blue changes shade quite a bit based on lighting - https://www.instagram.com/p/BSb7ubgF-DK/

      VOLKSWAGEN LAUNCHES AMERICA’S BEST SUV BUMPER-TO-BUMPER TRANSFERABLE WARRANTY ON 2018 VOLKSWAGEN ATLAS AND TIGUAN
      Apr 11, 2017

      Six-year/72,000-mile “bumper-to-bumper” New Vehicle Limited Warranty beats all peers
      Transferable warranty means peace of mind for new and used buyers
      Demonstrates Volkswagen’s commitment to best-in-class value

      NEW YORK (April 11, 2017) — When the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas and 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan arrive in dealerships over the next few months, they will carry the best transferable bumper-to-bumper warranty among SUVs in America: Volkswagen is offering a six-year or 72,000-mile (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty, with coverage that’s transferable beyond the first owner.

      “We specifically designed and built the all-new Atlas and Tiguan for American customers. This warranty further addresses the needs of American buyers head-on,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and Chief Executive Officer of Volkswagen Group of America. “We’re confident in the reliability and workmanship of these SUVs, and we want our customers to be confident in their purchase. We believe this warranty will lead to reduced cost of ownership for Volkswagen owners.”

      The 2018 Atlas and 2018 Tiguan’s six-year/72,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty includes powertrain coverage for their engines, transmissions and optional 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system. Major competitors to the Atlas—Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder among them—offer a three-year/36,000 mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty. Major competitors to the Tiguan also offer a three-year/36,000 mile basic warranty with a five-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty—such as Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4.

      Not only is the Volkswagen SUV bumper-to-bumper warranty longer than its competitors, but all of its elements can be transferred to subsequent owners up to 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever occurs first. While Hyundai and Kia offer a five-year/60,000 mile basic warranty and a higher time and mileage limit on their powertrain limited warranties, if the car is sold to a second owner, the powertrain limited warranty is not transferable beyond five years or 60,000 miles from the date it was first sold new.

      Don't count out the Titanium Beige R-Line too early...

I checked again last night and the two-tone is gone. Oh well.....I guess it's gonna be all black then.

      Only two-tone on the SEL premium according to this: http://www.emichvw.com/assets/misc/9...rder_guide.pdf
