2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

When you’ve got a big family to take to soccer games in Evanston or anywhere around Glenview, then you understand the value of comfort, space, safety, and entertainment features. The all-new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan and all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas both bring these to the table with features like Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto, a Fender® Premium Audio System, and VW Car-Net® Security & Service. There’s quite a bit that sets these two SUVs apart, though, so check out this guide before choosing your new VW SUV near Chicago.

Performance & Fuel Economy

Find Out Which VW SUV is Better Suited for Your Auto Needs

There’s a lot to like about both the new VW Tiguan and new VW Atlas, but at the end of the days it comes down to your budget and needs. The Tiguan will likely prove the better pick for families looking for extra accommodations but who also want to be careful with their budget. The all-new Atlas, meanwhile, delivers copious amounts of power and space at a slightly higher premium.
