Accompanying the engine is start-stop technology, which helps bolster fuel efficiency by shutting it down when coming to a stop and turning it back on when you release the brake pedal. Paired with the V6 is an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is accompanied by a Tiptronic shifter and Sport mode to simulate greater control over gear shifting. You can go with VW’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive for greater traction ability. Otherwise, you can stick with the front-wheel drivetrain, which helps the Atlas achieve its peak fuel economy numbers of 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.**
