2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
It's been a big year for Volkswagen with the introduction of the all-new Atlas and then the reveal of the updated Tiguan. The Atlas was designed for the modern American family making it a great choice for families needing an SUV but the Tiguan too offers great qualities for families as well as other customers looking for an SUV. Take a look at our 2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan comparison to see the differences between the two and to get a better idea of what one is the right choice for you.
The Volkswagen Atlas was the automaker's first three-row crossover SUV but VW surprised us all by adding the option for Tiguan customers to choose an optional third-row to expand its seating capacity to seven. The Tiguan is smaller in size when compared to the Atlas so customers that really need the three-rows of seating will find that Atlas's interior more spacious and comfortable for passengers.
