24: Volkswagen Atlas
Ever since Diesel-Gate, Volkswagen has been trying to get back on a good footing with consumers. Killing off the Beetle and several other models was the first step, but a new SUV is not the answer. The VW lineup is already cramped with cars that garner questionable sales figures, and the Atlas might just add to the confusion.
The Atlas provides the same kind of exceptional German driving experience that you’d expect, but is it enough to sell? We’re not sure, yet we do know the Atlas hasn’t lived up to all of the expectations. This is just a larger Toureg in a lot of aspects, and when innovation is key, that is not a good thing.
