In the market for a new SUV? That's great! With so many options on the market today, you'll want to find the right information on the models you're interested in, such as the Volkswagen Atlas and Honda Pilot. That's where we come in.

Our team at Fred Beans Volkswagen of Devon has taken these two great vehicles and put them side by side in this Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot vehicle comparison. This allows our drivers in Devon, Wayne, and Paoli to easily choose the one that's right for them. Check out the interior space, engine options, safety ratings, and features of the VW Atlas and the Honda Pilot, and decide for yourself which model will better suit your lifestyle.

VW Atlas vs Honda Pilot: Interior Space & Design

When looking at the interior room of the VW Atlas and Honda Pilot, there's no question that both offer great space for their class. With three rows standard in both models, you'll find 37.6 inches of legroom in the rear row of the Volkswagen Atlas, and 31.9 inches in the Pilot, so even your tallest riders will find comfort to stretch out.

In terms of cargo space, the 2019 VW Atlas takes the lead here once again, with a massive 96.8 cubic feet of room for, well, pretty much anything! The 2019 Pilot follows with 83.9 cubic feet of space.

If it's technology you're looking for, both SUVs come with an available 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, so you can always be connected. Bluetooth® connectivity is standard, allowing you to listen to your favorite tunes or access other apps while on the road.

VW Atlas vs Pilot: Power & Performance

When it comes to power and performance, you'll want to get the most out of your next SUV. Luckily, both the VW Atlas and Pilot come standard with powerful V6 engines, both producing at least 276 horsepower. But when it comes to torque, the Volkswagen Atlas provides slightly more strength with 266 lb-ft of torque compared to the 262 lb-ft of torque in the Honda SUV.

The VW Atlas and the Honda Pilot are neck and neck when it comes to fuel economy, but one does provide more bang for your buck. The Volkswagen Atlas has an EPA-estimated 22 city/26 highway MPG,* while the 2019 Honda Pilot offers an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway MPG. With either option, you'll be getting to your destinations with ease and fewer stops.

However, both models are tied when it comes to towing capacity. You can pull up to an extra 5,000 pounds with both the Volkswagen Atlas and the Honda Pilot, so don't be afraid to bring the trailer on both on your next family vacation!

Safety Features

We saved the best category for last, as the most important features to look for in your next SUV are the safety features.

Both the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and the 2019 Honda Pilot come standard with a rearview camera. However, the VW Atlas also adds in the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System as a standard safety feature. The models have plenty of available additions, as well. With features like these, you'll feel like you have a personal assistant while on the road!
