2019 VW Atlas vs Pilot: Interior Features

2018 Volkswagen Atlas Interior TechnologyThe 2019 VW Atlas and Pilot are known for their impressively roomy cabins. Each has three rows of seats, and these seats are incredibly roomy. With over 40 inches legroom in the front rows and roughly 38 inches of legroom in the second rows, you'll find plenty of space to accommodate adults.

Look to the third rows, and you'll find the Pilot's best saved for kids, with just 31.9 inches of legroom. That falls short of what most adults will need to keep their legs limber and lithe. The VW Atlas, however, offers a third row that can seat adults in a pinch with 33.7 inches of legroom.

Both rides come standard with cloth upholstery, but you can upgrade to stylish leather for a more deluxe experience-and seats that are incredibly easy to clean.

2019 Volkswagen Atlas Review

Under the Hood: SUV Performance Specs

Equip the Volkswagen Atlas and Honda Pilot with their V6 engines, and you're in for a robust drive on any road. These powerhouses crank out roughly 280 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, which'll give you all the acceleration you need to merge on highways and pass other vehicles with ease.

It's also enough power to tow up to 5,000 pounds in either vehicle, so you can hitch up a small hard-side RV and make your way to your favorite camping destination.

The available 8-speed and 9-speed automatic transmissions in the VW Atlas and Pilot, respectively, shift smoothly and make for a refined ride. However, only the transmission in the Volkswagen SUV offers Tiptronic® mode for manual transitions and more control.

Cargo Space & Storage

With the immense size of the 2019 VW Atlas and Pilot, you might expect they'd have roomy cargo holds-and you'd be correct. Let's look at the specifications:

Volkswagen Atlas

Honda Pilot

Cargo Behind 3rd Row (ft3)



Cargo Behind 2nd Row (ft3)



Cargo Behind 1st Row (ft3)



As vast as the Pilot's cargo bay is, the VW Atlas exceeds it in every way, no matter whether the rear seats are in use or folded. You can fit plenty of furniture, outdoors gear, and storage bins in the Pilot… but even more in the Volkswagen SUV.

You'll be pleased that both vehicles offer an available hands-free power liftgate. When your hands are full of items you need to store in the trunk, just kick your foot under the rear bumper (while the key fob is in your pocket) and the liftgate will rise on its own!

Volkswagen Atlas vs Honda Pilot: And the Winner Is….
