The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is a two-row version of the Volkswagen Atlas that fits right into the mid-size crossover class beautifully. For those who know they want to buy the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, there is only one question left worth asking, what trim is best?

The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport SEL is one of the middle-most trims. Since there is an even number of trims (eight), there is no exact middle trim. The SEL represents the best balance between value and features and should be high on the list of anyone trying to find out which version of the Atlas Cross Sport to buy. The table below illustrates the most significant features and important specifications for your reference and comparison purposes.

Trim Level Analysis

Although there are plenty of other trims to choose from, you should start your search here. If the price is too rich, go down in trims until you find the right match. If you need more features, try the SEL R-Line or SEL Premium trims. The two powertrain options on the SEL make little difference torque-wise, but the horsepower change will be noticeable. There are plenty more features than can be listed on one page, but suffice it to say the SEL is a great example of what the Atlas Cross Sport can be without showing off every possible feature.
