Atlas engines are known for being great. Even with an empty cabin, the optional V6 engine’s performance is passable off the line.  The Atlas test vehicle’s 8.5-second 0-60 mph time is slower than that of many competing three-row SUVs. The Atlas’ standard four-cylinder model, unexpectedly, was faster, reaching 60 mph in 8.1 seconds. Other than that, considering its size, the Atlas is comfortable to wheel around. The smooth brakes and transmission shifting make this a simple SUV to drive every day. It is collected and stable when navigating corners.

In the front, there is plenty of space for everyone, and the second row is broad enough to fit three adults across. Additionally, the third row comfortably suits adults who are 6 feet or shorter. The Atlas receives praise for its second-row seat, which also offers good rear sight. The digital gauge cluster that is offered on the Atlas requires some getting used to, but once you do, you get more comfortable.

Final thought

The Atlas is a roomy and comfortable three-row SUV. An easy-to-use infotainment system and helpful driver aids are also part of the appeal. Subpar acceleration from both of the Atlas’ available engines is a drawback, but overall this is a compelling choice for a family-friendly SUV. if you are looking for a SUV for family purpose, this would be a right choice.
