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.
