Just like the Audi Q8 is the shorter, sportier two-row variant of the three-row Audi Q7, Volkswagen created a sportier two-row version of its large three-row Atlas crossover SUV .
The German automaker revealed the 2020 Atlas Cross Sport on Friday at its factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where it will build the two-row crossover SUV. The Atlas Cross Sport will be offered in eight trim levels when it goes on sale in spring 2020.
Previewed in concept form at the 2018 New York International Auto Show, the production Atlas Cross Sport is only 2.8 inches shorter than the full-size Atlas, chopped off the rear overhang for a more bulldog-like stance.

An aggressive front bumper, a three-bar chrome grille, and chrome trim complete the look, while R-Line models get their own bumper and available 21-inch wheels.
