If you are considering coming to check out the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas at our dealer serving the Bryant area, then you’ve made a great choice. This is a new larger SUV that has challenged some of the more popular models by pushing the limits of what you can do in terms of space and comfort. It’s a great family vehicle that checks off all the boxes. The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas Comfortline 3.6 FSI model is not afraid to take on popular options like the Honda Pilot EX either thanks to a bevy of impressive features. Let’s see how these SUVs match up one on one.

Bryant Area Drivers Get Plenty of Room in 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Any good family SUV needs to be able to get things done, and that means having a reliable powertrain that can do some heavy lifting from time to time. The Honda Pilot provides a solid option here, but doesn’t deliver in the same way that the Atlas does for shoppers at our Bryant area Volkswagen dealership. A slightly larger V6 engine delivers more torque than its counterpart thanks to a double overhead camshaft design. If you plan on needing to use this vehicle to tow a boat or trailer, the VW Atlas can tow up to 5,000 lbs., which dwarfs the Pilot’s 1,500-lb towing capacity. It has plenty of power, but the 2018 VW Atlas also gives you peace of mind through confident handling and control. The 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® is matched with 4MOTION all-wheel drive with Active Control, which distributes torque to the wheels that need it most for supreme control in adverse conditions.

The interior of the new Atlas also opens up a world of possibility with three rows of seats, which offer more space than the Honda Pilot can, especially to third-row passengers. Everyone gets to enjoy leatherette seats as well, and when it comes to loading the whole family up, it’s the Atlas again that offers more cargo room to make sure there’s room for your luggage. When you factor in the modern styling, sharp design accents, and an impressive basic warranty, it’s clear to see why so many shoppers are choosing the new VW Atlas over the competition.
