How does the new Atlas compare to the 2018 Tiguan?

The full-size SUV class has arrived to Volkswagen in the form of the 2018 Atlas. The Atlas joins the Tiguan and the Touareg as one of the three SUVs in Volkswagen’s lineup. Its high-powered engine and luxurious feel have made it a coveted buy in the few months, but how does it compare to the Tiguan? The Tiguan has been around for the better part of the last decade as Volkswagen’s premier compact crossover SUV. Our team here at Neftin Volkswagen has some of the basic information on each vehicle, so keep reading to compare and contrast!

The new Atlas measures much larger than the Tiguan, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. At 198 inches long, it is more than a foot longer than the compact Tiguan. While the Atlas features more powerful engine options, it still sports a respectable fuel economy that is pretty competitive with that of the Tiguan. Each vehicle can seat up to six passengers plus the driver, so even if you do check out the Tiguan, know that you aren’t missing out on seating capacity. The bottom line here is that both of these SUVs start at affordable prices, show off strong engines, and are fuel efficient.
