The following are the drive models that you can pick from:

  • On-road mode

  • Off-road mode
  • Off-road custom mode


The shorter Atlas Cross Sport has 2 rows of seats instead of 3, and it gains a big cargo area behind the rear seats with 40.3 cubic feet of area. Folding down the second row opens up the cargo area to 77.8 cubic feet. With its 3 rows, the Atlas has 20.6 feet of cargo area behind the third row and 55.6 cubic feet behind the second row.

Other than the seating arrangements and the cargo area, the Atlas Cross Sport and the Atlas are very similar inside.
