While the VW Atlas is a topnotch investment for any Texan, we understand there may be other three-row SUVs that are competing for your attention. To illustrate what sets our model apart, read on to learn a little more about how it compares to several similar vehicles.

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot

Cargo Capacity

Whether it's a week's worth of groceries for the family, or a full set of golf clubs for a day of hitting the links, the Volkswagen Atlas has ample cargo space behind its backseat to accommodate all of your important gear. Compared to the Atlas, which has nearly 21 cubic feet of cargo space available, the Honda Pilot has just 16 cubic feet.

Power and Performance

Volkswagen models are renowned for their engaging handling and smooth performance, and the new Atlas SUV is proof of the carmaker's commitment to delivering the power that drivers love. Depending on your preference and trim, there are two powertrains available for our SUV, including a turbocharged four cylinder with 235 horsepower and a V6 with 276 horsepower. Comparatively, the Honda Pilot has just one engine powering its entire lineup, a 3.5-liter V6 engine.

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Subaru Ascent

Interior Space and Comfort

Regardless of which row you sit in, you and your passengers will be more comfortable riding in the Volkswagen Atlas than the Subaru Ascent, thanks to greater amounts of interior space in the VW. For example, you can expect more headroom throughout the vehicle, as well as more front seat legroom, and extra third-row legroom, which means everyone will be happier and cozier, even on long road trips. Plus, not only does the Atlas have extra room for passengers, it also has a greater cargo capacity than the Subaru Ascent as well.

Standard Front-Wheel Drive

With the Volkswagen Atlas, front-wheel drive comes as the standard equipment, which is perfect for drivers here in the Grapevine area, where we don't regularly deal with snow, ice, or slippery conditions. All-wheel drive can come in handy when you want it, and the Atlas gives it to you as an option. However, the Subaru Ascent doesn't make it optional or give you a choice of whether or not you want all-wheel drive. Every Ascent gets is standard, which can cause added expense and headaches anytime you need new tires.

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Mazda CX-9

Engine Options and Performance

When you select the Volkswagen Atlas, you get your pick of either a turbo four-cylinder or a nice V6 engine. Both deliver the level of power that our customers want, with a higher output than comes standard on the sole engine option that's available with the Mazda CX-9.


Volkswagen knows what drivers like, and they deliver. When it comes to the Atlas SUV, there are several standard tech features that our customers appreciate, which aren't standard with the Mazda CX-9. These include a standard Wi-Fi hotspot and a standard power-operated liftgate.
