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:

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.

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Two new trim levels debut.Expanded availability of features for 2019.

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

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

By:

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility has been added to Pilots with the 8-inch touchscreen (EX and above). Otherwise, the Pilot carries over unchanged.

Pros
A versatile, roomy interior with spacious rear seats
Ride is smooth and compliant in most conditions
Better fuel economy than rivals
Multiple clever storage compartments

Cons
Nine-speed automatic transmission lacks refinement
Collision warning and adaptive cruise control are overly sensitive
Third-row access is narrow
Touchscreen interface isn't very intuitive

The 2017 Honda Pilot ranks 3 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. Though it’s a little more expensive than other midsize SUVs, its standard V6, roomy cabin, and available active safety features make the 2017 Honda Pilot a smart choice.

Pros
Plush, roomy seats
Adult-friendly third row
Cavernous cargo bay
Great safety scores

Cons
Complicated audio and climate controls

By:

The 2017 Honda Pilot is a capable, refined crossover SUV with all the goodness of a minivan, save for the sliding doors.
The Honda Pilot was one of the first big crossovers to completely shun the old SUV idiom. No blocky, bluff styling, no truck-like frame, no rugged low-ratio transfer case or knobby off-road tires. The first Pilot had slim roof pillars, a cushy Civic-like cabin, and lots of seats.

Pros
The boxy look's been banished
Lavish new interior light-years ahead of the old
Better seats, better cargo space
Android interface, lots of ports for plugs
Gas-mileage gains

Cons
Maybe not as distinctive in styling
9-speed automatic can get confused
Blind-spot monitors only on most expensive model
One-touch seats only on EX-L and pricier models
