#245 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport; Coronavirus Affecting Auto Shows

published 3 weeks ago by Consumer Reports

Consumer Reports has rented a 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, and we give our first impressions on this 2-row midsize SUV, compare it to the regular Atlas, as well as other 5-seat SUVs. With the cancellation of the Geneva Auto Show due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, we discuss the future of auto shows worldwide, and whether they make practical sense for manufacturers anymore. We also answer audience questions about how CR car experts are able to retain information to compare different vehicle generations, if a manufacturer's warranty will transfer with the sale of a used car, and why the world of LED, HID, and halogen headlights seems more confusing than ever.     ----------------------------------- Take our survey here: CR.org/TalkingCarsSurvey   Have a question for our experts?
