Thanks to its versatile seats, you'll be able to configure the perfect cargo area no matter how big, small, or how many people you need to haul as well. The second row of the Atlas has been crafted to be large enough to hold three child seats! No more having to put a third child in the third-row. Each child will have plenty of space, and the 17 cupholders in the Atlas mean they'll have plenty of places to put their drinks.

Test Drive the 2018 Atlas Near Portland, OR

Don't get us wrong, the 2017 Subaru Outback is a great vehicle in its own right, and it was an amazing competitor. There were just a handful of areas where it wasn't able to stack up against the 2018 Atlas. Room for two more people means that even when you don't have a full vehicle, you'll be able to enjoy much more room to store all of your belongings and gear needed for your trip. The available safety technology on the Atlas is perfect for ensuring that your family remains as safe as possible on the roads during trips of any length. The Lane-Departure Monitoring system, for example, is capable of detecting your precise location on the road, and can warn you if you unintentionally leave your lane.
