The all-new 2018 Atlas is going to quickly become a staple family vehicle. This three-row SUV excels at space, technology, and, most importantly, safety. At Pohanka VW, our first concern is always with the customer service we provide to everyone who steps foot inside of the door, and our staff is here seven days a week to make your visit convenient. Give us a call at 855-979-5533 if you have any questions prior to coming in!

Let’s really delve deep into the safety aspects of the Atlas. It always starts with a good foundation, and the Atlas definitely has that. The exterior strategically uses specially alloyed high-strength steel to increase sturdiness. Front and rear crumple zones are designed to absorb the energy from a crash and, especially when paired with the rigid safety cage on the Atlas, can reduce the amount of impact that reaches you and your passengers. What about preventing accidents, though? That’s the ultimate goal, and the Atlas was clearly designed with that in mind. Safety starts from little to big aspects and, before you even back out of your driveway, you’ll be aware of your SUV’s condition. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System1 lets you know when you’re running low on air, so you can help prevent popped tires. The moment you gear into reverse, the Rearview Camera System1 will display on the center stack, alerting you to obstructions. It even has an Overhead View Camera1 so that you can get a grasp of your surrounding before tapping the accelerator.

The Atlas also boasts a number of driver-assist features for while you’re on the road. While you’re cruising down Addison Road South, you’ll love the Blind Spot Monitor1 for giving you an extra dose of confidence while switching lanes, and the Pedestrian Monitoring1 is ideal for city driving. Do you have a long commute in the morning or like to take weekend road trips? You’ll definitely want to equip your Atlas with Adaptive Cruise Control1. Not only does this feature give your ankle a break, but it also keeps a set following distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you for safer driving all around! Finally, find and situate yourself in a parallel spot in the city can be a pain, but with Park Pilot, it won’t be. Sensors are equipped all around the Atlas to make your parking job a cinch!

Are you ready to see the new 2018 VW Atlas safety features in Capitol Heights, MD, in action? We at Pohanka VW are ready to show them off! Swing by our location at 1720 Ritchie Station Court in Capitol Heights, MD, today!

I recently discussed a potential purchase or leasing of a VW with Josue Febres. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. He is a good salesperson who listens to the client and tries to find the right solutions. I was impressed by the proactive social media and texting, that constantly kept me up to date on scheduling. Josue cares and is also professional in his demeanor. Recommend any potential buyer give him a call. Ron K

Amazing service. If I could give them 10 stars I would. Victoria and her management helped me get into an awesome car. I got a really great price point for a top of the line vehicle. This is honestly the first time I didn't feel rushed and swindled into buying a car. Buy here-- trust me when I tell you that you will be glad you did.

Pretty good service. I took my car here to get a tire replaced under my Fidelity warranty which is unfortunately something that I've had to do every year elsewhere in the DMV. Service was local, quick and easy. It was done to my satisfaction within a day because I needed a new wheel as well. Thanks again!

5 stars for Josue Febres, my Sales Consultant, and Jay Adelson, Director of Finance, for making the car shopping and buying experience informative, thorough, fun, super friendly, and with zero pressure. Everything was transparent, Josue was super patient with me asking 1000 questions, taking my time to make any decisions, and looking at other options, both new and pre-owned. He asked the right questions and listened to understand what it is that I was looking for, needed vs. wanted, he did not waste my time with suggestions that were off the mark or too expensive. They certainly have customer service in the bag. I purchased a 2019 e-Golf SE after they worked with me and gave me several discounts. I can't speak to the other Sales Consultants, but I highly recommend Josue no matter what you are looking for. He will do his best to find you something that you like. It's a big dealership with a huge lot, 3 showrooms, and tons of inventory.
