VW Atlas SUV Heading To Russia Next Year With Small 2-liter Diesel

#Volkswagen is reportedly getting ready to export their new Atlas to the Russian market, from the United States, late next year, but does that mean that it will eventually go on sale in Western Europe too?

Well, according to an inside source who spoke to AutoNews during the 2016 LA Auto Show, the answer is "unlikely", but Russia on the other hand remains a viable solution, with the car company's Sales and Marketing chief, Juergen Stackmann saying: "Russia is one of the markets we're considering."

Built at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Volkswagen Atlas, the brand's largest ever passenger vehicle with a length of more than 5,000 mm (196,85 in), will apparently go on sale in its new market in late 2017 powered by a 2.0-liter diesel engine, which could be offered in several output levels. By comparison, the US version can only be had with a 2.0-liter or a 3.6-liter petrol unit, delivering 238 HP and 280 HP, respectively.

Additionally, Volkswagen also introduced the Atlas on the Chinese market last month, where it's known as Teramont. This version uses a 2.0-liter petrol mill, with 186 HP and 220 HP, and can also be had with a 2.5-liter V6.
