Volkswagen will offer 2018 model year fleet incentives for its Atlas mid-size SUV and Tiguan long wheelbase compact SUV, the automaker has announced.

Volkswagen will offer $1,000 for the Atlas and $750 for the Tiguan. Volkswagen will announced additional incentives for its lineup at a later date.

The 2018 Atlas is VW's largest SUV to date, and two vehicles signal an expansion of utility vehicles in an automotive market that's seeing a shift away from passenger cars to crossovers.

Volkswagen is also offering two Tiguan vehicles, including the new model that's nearly 11 inches longer than the existing Tiguan. It's available with three rows.
