Good Cruiser
As a family vehicle or daily driver, the Atlas works well. The cabin is quiet even at highway speeds, admitting very little road or wind noise. The ride is comfortable and the suspension does an excellent job absorbing road imperfections without feeling floaty or jouncy. The steering and brakes are commendable, but when pushing this big crossover on a twisty road, the vehicle’s mass really shows itself through considerable understeer. The Atlas is not a sporty vehicle, and it wasn’t designed to be; it serves its purpose as an excellent cargo and people hauler.
