The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
A new powertrain and crisp (but conservative) styling mean the Traverse is once again a contender in the three-row crossover race. The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas does little wrong, but it's light on personality and a little low-rent inside—and it guzzles fuel. It's worth a look, but mostly rivals do more for less.
