Since its release earlier this year, the 2018 VW Atlas has earned rave reviews for its family-friendly functionality and versatility, impressive driving characteristics and abundance of advanced multimedia and safety features. The all-new Atlas was recognized again, as it was named one of Wards 10 Best User Experiences for Smart, Safe, Connected Vehicles.
Why did the VW Atlas win the Wards 10 Best User Experiences award?
For the 10 Best User Experiences awards, the editors at WardsAuto evaluated 22 vehicles and selected winners based on the overall user experience including user-friendliness of the controls and the availability and effectiveness of advanced driver assistance technology. With the VW Atlas, the WardsAuto editors cited its uncluttered central display, with its capacitive touchscreen and clean gauge cluster. Other highlights included its storage spaces and multiple connection points for devices, including four available USB ports on higher trims, as well as a 110-volt socket for charging. The 10 Best User Experience award for the Atlas will be presented at the second annual WardsAuto User Experience Conference on October 5, 2017 in Novi, Michigan.
