Default First Drive: 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SEL Premium

It was an inevitable question from a colleague of mine at the launch of the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas , the brand's first three-row SUV that takes aim at such industry standards as the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander : "Was the Atlas originally planned to have a diesel engine option?" Cue shifty eyes, forced smiles, and some guttural throat clearing from the assembled VW personnel on hand. Of course, all one really needed to do was open the fuel filler door to see the curiously wide space beside the fuel filler neck where a diesel exhaust fluid filler would have existed to learn the answer.
