Atlas Power and Tiguan Versatility

The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is smaller and more compact, with a lower starting price, than the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. The 2019 Tiguan is renowned for being a sophisticated yet capable vehicle, with a sharp modern interior. This vehicle is ideal for those who want a sleek, balanced compact crossover SUV that looks and drives great while carrying over some of the extra room, storage capacity, and performance features of a bigger SUV.

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, on the other hand, is the largest crossover ever produced by VW. This reflects in the standard 7-passenger seating capacity, the large cargo volume, and the impressively muscular towing capacity. It also carries a higher starting price. This is the vehicle to go to for drivers with higher towing or hauling demands, regular seven-passenger carloads and/or bigger cargo transportation needs.

The 2019 Atlas even boasts seventeen cupholders, so you can have quite a party in there (though please be responsible)!

Both vehicles come with Volkswagen’s “The People First Warranty,” which is good for six years or 72,000 miles, and transferable for free if you sell the vehicle. They also both have available 4Motion All Wheel Drive.
