When Volkswagen introduced the Atlas Cross Sport in 2020, it was designed as a two-row version of the popular Atlas crossover. As a midsize crossover SUV, the Atlas Cross Sport is placed in the same class as the Ford Edge. The Edge is also a two-row SUV, and it has a slightly higher base MSRP.

This crossover SUV's exterior also boasts chrome accents, molded fenders over the front and rear wheels, and two crisp definition lines through the sides. The Ford Edge's exterior, on the other hand, shows off a segmented look on the front end. The hexagonal grille is separated from the three-piece lower air vents and the pointed headlights. The sides' personality lines have a slight angle, and the roof remains flat from front to rear.
