2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2017 Honda Pilot

Before recently, Volkswagen wasn't able to offer customers a three-row crossover but with the addition of the all-new 2018 VW Atlas customers now have that option. The Atlas was built for the modern American family meaning that the Atlas reserves one of the top spots for family-hauling crossovers. Take a look at this 2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2017 Honda Pilot comparison to learn more.

The 2018 VW Atlas actually has two engine options. The base engine is the 2.0-liter Inline 4 engine with 238 horsepower but it is available an available 3.6 V6 engine with 276 horsepower. The Atlas can also handle towing up to 5,000 pounds which is a great number for a family looking for an SUV with towing capacity that doesn't greatly affect fuel economy.
