The 2020 Honda Pilot has already been released on the roads near Scottsdale, but the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas continues to hold its own in this important matchup. Comparing the Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot on utility, price, and performance, you’ll see that the VW is the perfect three-row SUV for your daily drives. Here’s why:

  • Cargo Space and Utility: The Atlas offers more cargo space than the Pilot, whether your rear seats are upright or laid flat.
  • Pricing and Value: The Atlas isn’t just more affordable than its Honda rival. It’s also the more reliable choice, according to the experts at J.D. Power.
  • Performance and Fuel Economy: Comparing the Atlas vs. Pilot in their base trims, you’ll see that our SUV is much more efficient in the city.

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot: Cargo Space and Utility

Three-row SUVs are perfect for families who need to be ready for anything, but when you’re comparing the Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot, which one is actually bringing more utility to the roads near you? Compare their cargo space dimensions here:

  • Cargo Space Behind 3rd Row
    • VW Atlas – 20.6 cubic feet
    • Honda Pilot – 16.5 cubic feet
  • Cargo Space with Rear Seats Folded
    • VW Atlas – 96.8 cubic feet
    • Honda Pilot – 83.9 cubic feet

As you can see, there’s really no contest at all! Whether you’re traveling with a cabin full of passengers, or your moving furniture with a friend, the Atlas is going to make your daily tasks and errands a whole lot easier.

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot: MSRP and Value

The 2019 VW Atlas is less expensive than the 2019 Honda Pilot, meaning you’ll likely enjoy lower monthly lease payments with the Atlas. Here’s a quick look at their base-level and range-topping trims’ prices:

  • 2019 VW Atlas S: Starting from $30,895 MSRP
  • 2019 VW Atlas V6 SEL Premium w/ 4MOTION®: Starting from $48,395 MSRP
  • 2020 Honda Pilot LX: Starting from $31,450 MSRP
  • 2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition: Starting from $49,620

Whether you opt for the base trim or the range-topping option, the 2019 Atlas costs less than the 2020 Honda Pilot. Remember, you can save even more by taking advantage of our Volkswagen Atlas lease specials! Interested in keeping your vehicle for years to come?

Comparing the Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot on reliability, we find yet another advantage: The Atlas received a J.D. Power predicted reliability rating of 3 out of 5! The Pilot, on the other hand, has been rated at just 2.5 out of 5. That’s below the industry average.

Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot: Performance and Fuel Economy

All Honda Pilot models include a V6 engine! With the Atlas S baseline trim, you’ll have a choice between an Inline 4-cylinder engine and an available V6. Although the V6 is standard on higher-end models, we love that VW gives drivers the freedom to choose.

  • If you opt for the Volkswagen Atlas I4, you’ll enjoy up to 22 mpg in the city! Since the V6 Pilot can only manage about 19 mpg on the roads of Paradise Valley and Fountain Hills, the Atlas is better for daily errands.
  • If you decide to go for the Volkswagen Atlas V6, you’ll enjoy 266 lb-ft of torque, compared to 262 lb-ft in the Pilot.

Comparing the Honda Pilot vs. Volkswagen Atlas on Features

We’ve provided plenty of coverage on the important specs and details in this Atlas vs. Pilot match-up, but which vehicle offers the features that will bring a smile to your face? Will you have more fun inside the Honda or inside the VW? Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • Every Atlas includes an 8-speed automatic transmission with a manual mode, so you can take control when the mood strikes. The Pilot only offers a 6-speed automatic, which isn’t as engaging to use.
  • Only the Atlas includes a standard blind-spot monitoring system, heated side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and auto-leveling headlights, so you can relax and enjoy the road.
  • Remote engine start is optional right in the base VW Atlas trim level, so you can cool your cabin off before you get in the driver’s seat on the Cave Creek-area’s hottest afternoons. You’ll need to pay for a more expensive trim to get the same feature in a Pilot.
