The Volkswagen Atlas gallantly rolled into the U.S. marketplace with a lot of fanfare, and it has certainly lived up to the hype. It’s a solid SUV fit for families who want to travel in comfort and style. There are plenty of competitors, however, including the Honda Pilot. If you’re looking for the right SUV, we want to help your decision with a comparison of the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas vs the 2019 Honda Pilot.
Both of these vehicles come from heavyweights in the automotive industry, and they have quite a lot to offer. But after you take a look at the chart, you may have your mind made up.
|2019 Volkswagen Atlas||vs||2019 Honda Pilot|
|20 City / 26 Hwy MPG||Base Fuel Economy||19 City / 27 Hwy MPG|
|96.8 Cubic Feet||Maximum Cargo Capacity||83.9 Cubic Feet|
|Standard On All Trims||Apple CarPlay™ / Android Auto™||Standard on Higher Trims; Unavailable in Base Model|
The 2019 Atlas comes with a lower starting price than the 2019 Passport, which makes it all the more curious why Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are not standard right out of the gate with the Pilot but those functionalities are standard on every trim of the 2019 Atlas with the inclusion of Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect. These impressive functions allow you to synchronize your compatible smartphone to the vehicle and use certain apps, including navigation. So, even if your vehicle doesn’t have navigation built in, you can still navigate based on the map applications you have in your phone.
Also as standard features, you can enjoy a rearview camera system, Bluetooth® technology for audio streaming, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist), Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, and more. As you climb up the trim ladder of the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, you can find other such technology features as available Remote Start, available Adaptive Cruise Control, and so much more.
This is all just a taste of what you can find. These stats speak for themselves. Contact us if you’re in the area and would like to drive the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas today.
