In the autumn last fall, the German automobile company Volkswagen presented its new SUV atlas 2018-2019 model year. It will be a big and powerful machine, equipped with three rows of chairs. It is planned that the new Volkswagen ATLAS will take the leading position among the cars of the company in the SUV category. Now at the top is a less dimensional Touareg SUV.

The lattice of the falseradiator and the front optics form a single stylistic element. A similar idea has already been used by the new Tiguan. You can even think that it is it, only more. But with a more attentive review, it becomes clear that the drawing of the lighting parts here was individually worked out and modified to a unique state.
The front headlights and rear lights have a modern LED filling. Almost all car brands began to move on LEDs. Working Optional Rear LED Backlight has a 3D effect, can automatically turn on when the outer illumination is reduced, and during operation creates spectacular patterns that serve as a real decoration of the car.
