Whether you are buying your first SUV or want the latest upgrades for the Glenview roads, the idea of a 2021 Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot matchup has probably crossed your mind. Both come from storied manufacturers known for producing capable vehicles at great prices, but in a side-by-side comparison, the dimensions of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas interior as well as its standard performance perks really stand out. Jennings Volkswagen covers the details below.

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot: Interior Features and Space

With either the Pilot or the Volkswagen Atlas interior, you’re given a great assortment of tech bells and whistles that make Chicago trips easy on passengers and drivers alike. For all their similarities, Volkswagen has assured you many of these at the base trim.

  • Standard on both the Atlas and Pilot: Multi-function steering wheel, rear view camera display, and USB ports
  • Standard on Altas (requires upgrades on Pilot): Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, roof rack, dual-zone climate control, 3 power outlets
  • Cargo Space: If you want a truly versatile SUV, the fold-down seats in the Volkswagen Atlas interior result in a very usable 20.6 cubic feet of max cargo space, a decent amount of space more than the Pilot, with its 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space.

The features, cargo space, and even the superior passenger legroom on the Volkswagen Atlas interior, aren’t just competitive with the impressive Pilot — they are even better.

2021 Volkswagen Atlas vs. 2020 Honda Pilot: Engines and Performance

In the performance department, there’s a lot to love whether your purchase the Honda Pilot or the Volkswagen Atlas for sale:

  • Fuel Economy: In this department, these SUVs are close, with the 19 mpg city on the Pilot being slightly less than the 20 mpg city on the Atlas.
  • Towing Capacity: Like interior features, the base trim of the Atlas gives you things you have to upgrade the Pilot to see. Both have max towing of 5,000 pounds, but that spec requires the AWD upgrade on the Pilot.
  • Transmission: The Pilot offers Northbrook drivers great control with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but the Atlas can provide even more breezy drives with 8-speed automatic transmission.

The little details add up, and the latest specs on your Volkswagen Atlas lease will leave you rest assured that it’s money well-spent!

2021 Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot: Price

Whether you get the Volkswagen Atlas for sale or take out a Volkswagen Atlas lease, you’re saving a little more money than you would on the Pilot.

  • 2021 Volkswagen Atlas S Starting MSRP: $31,545
  • 2020 Honda Pilot LX Starting MSRP: $31,650

Though priced very closely, remember that the base trim of the Atlas comes with all those features mentioned above, making it even more useful for Park Ridge trips!
