2018 Atlas vs 2017 Touareg Standard Technology Features

Depending on your budget, the Atlas may stand out to you. However, it's important to note that both the 2017 Touareg and the 2018 Atlas are SUVs with over 200 standard horsepower and standard features like Bluetooth compatibility and folding rear seats for versatility in packing the cargo space.  The Touareg's interior seats up to five, and the 2018 Atlas has seating for eight. On top of that, the maximum cargo space inside the 2018 Atlas offers over 30 more cubic feet of space than the 2017 Touareg 

The 2017 Touareg obviously offers more power, with a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces 280 hp, but it comes at the cost of a might higher starting MSRP. For those looking for plenty of space and a more affordable starting MSRP, the Atlas might be the better option. Both SUVs have plenty of style, and the same Volkswagen functionality that we've come to know and love.
