The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is an all-new midsize crossover. It slots in between the compact Tiguan and high-end Touareg in Volkswagen's lineup. The Atlas is actually larger than the Touareg, but it doesn't offer the same level of features or options.

PROS
Spacious interior offers ample room for passenger in all three rows
Great compromise between precise handling and everyday comfort
Straightforward cabin design makes everything easy to use

CONS
Fuel economy lags that of some competitors
Not very quick to accelerate, even with the optional V6

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is unchanged.The 2018 Land Cruiser comes fully loaded apart from a rear-seat entertainment system. It's likely something you can skip if you use tablets and other devices to keep your family entertained.

PROS
One of the most off-road-capable SUVs around
Surprisingly comfortable ride and capable handling for a big SUV
Commanding view of the road ahead

CONS
A Toyota badge at a price that matches luxury marques
Poor fuel economy
Second- and third-row seats lack space and versatility

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is a conundrum: it’s way better on-road than its off-road credentials suggest it should be, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.

Pros
Proper off-road cred
Great ride quality
Decadent interior
Dripping with personality and heritage
Strong V-8

Cons
Ponderous steering
Ghastly expensive
The Lexus LX 570 exists, too
Miserable fuel economy
Do you really need all those off-road toys?
