Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 VW Atlas prioritizes space above pace, which makes it a must-see for families.

Pros
Exceptionally spacious
Comfortable ride quality
Slide-forward second row
Decent value
Excellent warranty

Cons
Neither fast nor frugal
Low-buck interior trim
No AWD with turbo-4
Ungainly styling

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas ranked #8 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Volkswagen Atlas has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Three rows of spacious seats
Lots of cargo space
Intuitive infotainment system
Drives like a smaller vehicle

Cons
Sluggish acceleration
Some cheap cabin materials

By: 
usnews.com

Volkswagen has made few changes to the Atlas for its sophomore year and mostly it's just a shuffling of standard equipment. Automated emergency braking, forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, and heated exterior mirrors are all now standard across the lineup. The mid-range SE model receives three-zone automatic climate control as standard this year and the top-spec SEL trim now comes standard with a digital gauge display, LED taillights, navigation, and a heated steering wheel.

Pros
Expansive cabin,
lively handling and velvety ride,
cutting-edge infotainment.

Cons
Unimpressive acceleration and fuel economy,
functional but uninspired interior.

Fuel economy lags that of some competitors

Pros
Above-average cargo space for the class
All-wheel drive can be ordered on every trim level
Widespread availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Sync 3 infotainment interface is fast and easy to use

Cons
Aside from blind-spot monitoring, advanced safety features aren't available
Below-average fuel economy
Base engine can struggle while carrying passengers and cargo
Choppy, jittery ride on most surfaces

By:

Very little is new on the EcoSport for 2021, but it does get an updated appearance package, a standard power driver’s seat on the top SES 4WD trim (oddly, it didn't have one before) , and techy faux-leather seat coverings in the Titanium model.

Pros
Affordable, compact and maneuverable, easy-to-use infotainment.

Cons
Disappointing fuel efficiency, sleep-inducing acceleration, lacks interior space.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2021 Ford Ecosport small crossover forsakes its name and doesn’t offer much by way of driving excitement or efficiency.

Pros
Easy to park
Big enough back seat
Cargo space isn’t bad

Cons
No active safety tech
Spartan base model
Hardly a value
Built to a budget
Cheap, but somehow still too much
