How the Atlas Stacks Up Against Its Rivals

Atlas 2018

New for the 2018 model year, the Volkswagen Atlas SUV has already made waves in the crossover segment thanks to its bold styling, roomy interior and standard technology features. Below, we’ll compare VW Atlas with its rivals, so you can learn just what sets this stylish ride apart from the competition.


In the crossover segment, most of the competition – like the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Highlander and Honda CR-V – have adopted narrow headlights and rounded edges in an effort to optimize aerodynamics. This has lead to reduced interior space and a bland exterior look. However, there’s one three-row crossover that’s not settling for anything less than bold, and that’s the 2018 VW Atlas.

The front end is squared off with sharp corners, standard LED headlights and a bold grille, giving Atlas a powerful and muscular appearance. Creased lines on the sides highlight the wheel arches, while the roof rails add a touch of athleticism. In the rear, Atlas is designed with a chrome strip above the trunk and a rectangular shape for a look that’s distinctly Volkswagen.

Interior Space

When designing a crossover, cutting corners is a big no-no, but as you already know, most CUVs are built with rounded-out edges. Thanks to the 2018 Atlas’s meaner, boxier design, it doesn’t skimp on interior space, giving you more room for passengers and cargo. In fact, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas took home MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Best Large Utility award. Its maximum cargo volume with both the second and third rows folded down is 96.8 cu. ft., making it one of the roomiest SUVs in the large crossover sphere.


These days, technology is what sells cars. Unfortunately for other SUVs in the crossover class, Volkswagen Atlas comes with a full range of tech-savvy features that are sure to impress. Standard on the 2018 VW Atlas, the Composition Color touchscreen sound system helps you stay connected on the go, while Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect lets you use select apps by linking a compatible smartphone with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or MirrorLink capabilities.
