Volkswagen ATLAS Cross Sport GT 2022. Volkswagen plays with charged crossovers: Atlas Cross Sport GT shown.

The car of the German brand is presented in the status of a concept. Such a «hot» SUV (with a prefix in the form of letters GT to the name) will not go into the series.

VW launched its Atlas mid-size crossover for the US market in 2017. In some other markets, including Russia, the model is known under the name Teramont.

In 2019, the manufacturer introduced a «short» five-seater version, which in the States was called Atlas Cross Sport (and, for example, in China, the model name is Teramont X).

Over the past difficult year due to the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, American dealers have sold 29,069 copies of the two-row Atlas.

This year, the figure will definitely grow: in the first half of 2021 alone, customers bought 25,828 crossovers.

Hot hatchbacks Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R of the new generation entered the American market.

To draw attention to this event, as well as to once again «promote» its five-seater crossover, another concept was presented in the USA — the VW Atlas Cross Sport GT, created by local brand enthusiast Jamie Orr.

Note that the German company does not plan to launch this car into mass production.

The SUV with an attachment in the form of the letters GT to the name was created on the basis of the standard Atlas Cross Sport in the top-end SEL Premium R-Line configuration.

He was left with the «native» 4Motion all-wheel drive system (with a clutch on the rear axle).

However, the standard «filling» was replaced: the concept received an engine from the previous generation Golf R «hot hatch», we are talking about a 2.0-liter «turbo» TSI series EA888 with a return of 304 hp, which is paired with a seven-speed «Automatic» DSG.

Recall that the basic version of the «regular» Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, presented in the American market, is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, its power is equal to 238 hp.

The top-of-the-line SEL Premium R-Line is offered with a 3.6-liter VR6 engine with 280 hp. Both options come with 8АКП.

The Atlas Cross Sport GT concept has lowered suspension and Tarox front brakes with eight-piston mechanisms.

Visually, the car differs due to the bright blue color of the body in combination with black glossy elements (in the «normal» crossover they are made in chrome).

The profile is adorned with 22-inch ABT Sport HR wheels wrapped in Yokohama Advan sports rubber.

There are also many distinctive elements of the GT concept in the cabin: there are four separate Recaro sports seats with upholstery in microfiber and leatherette.

They are complemented by a blue gear lever top, matching seat belts and floor mats with matching piping.

Bold color accents are scattered throughout the interior, including the steering wheel and door panels.

To date, the price of the basic version of the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is $ 30,855 (equivalent to about 2.28 million rubles at the current exchange rate), and for the top-end SEL Premium R-Line, customers have to pay at least $ 50,025 (about 3.69 million rubles).

Note that sales of Teramont have been suspended in Russia for the time being. Probably, cars will continue to be supplied to our market from the USA, which means that customers will find a restyled crossover with the design of the current Atlas.
