Advantages of the 2019 VW Atlas

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas excels when it comes to pleasing its drivers. To start, the MSRP of the Atlas is much lower than the Passport. The Atlas also provides better fuel economy in the city and on the highway. This creates potential for drivers to save more money on gas. If you want to bring the whole family, the Atlas seats up to seven people with its three rows of seating. The Honda Passport can only seat five as it doesn’t offer the third row. For driver protection, the VW Atlas comes ahead in warranty. The bumper to bumper warranty is doubled compared to what the Passport offers. The powertrain warranty for the Atlas is 12 months/12,000 miles longer than what the Passport protects for. Finally, safety should come standard. The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas provides a blind-spot monitoring system to keep you safe as you drive. The Honda Passport doesn’t give you the option to add this safety feature.
