For Collegeville drivers in the market for a full-size SUV, it’s worth taking the time to compare the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and the 2020 Honda Pilot. Both offer the comfort, power, and capacity needed for family life in the Phoenixville area. Wynn Volkswagen takes a look at the Honda Pilot and VW Atlas interiors, engines, fuel economy, and features so you can decide which suits your driving style. 

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot: Engine and Power

Under the hood, the Volkswagen Atlas has a smaller engine but better gas mileage:

  • Engine: At the base level, the Atlas gets a 235-hp 2.0L inline-4 engine, and the Pilot gets a 280-hp 3.5L V6 engine.
  • MPG Ratings: The 2019 VW Atlas earns an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway, while the 2020 Honda Pilot earns 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway.

The Atlas comes equipped to tow 5,000 pounds, while the Pilot needs an additional towing package to tow more than 3,500 pounds around Phoenixville.

Honda Pilot vs. Volkswagen Atlas: Interior 

An SUV’s power is necessary for getting everyone and their gear where they need to be in the King of Prussia area. While the Atlas has a higher towing capacity than the Pilot, that’s probably not an issue on the days when you’re just looking for enough interior cargo space to cover all your errands. The Volkswagen Atlas again beats the Honda Pilot with 96.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, as opposed to the Honda Pilot’s 83.9 cubic feet. The VW Atlas features a hands-free Easy Open power liftgate, making it a cinch to access your ample cargo space when your hands are full. 

In addition, the VW Atlas interior includes these features: 

  • 3 front power outlets
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Optional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit (includes a 12.3-inch display with driver personalization and a wide map navigation view)
  • Available panoramic sunroof
  • Second row designed to hold three child safety seats.
