2019 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2019 Volkswagen Atlas

If you’re in the market for a new SUV, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan are likely high on your list. These models offer up-to-date features like LED taillights and available all-wheel drive, but one might serve Arlington families better than the other. Explore their differences below.

Specs and Fuel Economy

When it comes to performance and efficiency, the Tiguan and Atlas both offer different options. Check out their specs before you visit Alexandria Volkswagen for a test drive:

  • Efficiency: Both SUVs offer strong efficiency numbers. The 2019 Tiguan reaches 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway in EPA estimates, while the 2019 Atlas returns 22 mpg city/27 mpg highway in EPA estimates.*
  • Performance: Equipped with a 2.0L engine, the new Tiguan produces 184 hp throughout the model line. The Atlas offers the choice between a standard 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine or a 3.6L V6 with up to 276 hp.
  • Drivetrain: Either model can be equipped with 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive for enhanced traction on Arlington city streets, and that means both fit into our VW AWD lineup.

Cargo and Passenger Room

Inside both Volkswagen SUVs are interiors that balance form and function. However, one offers more cargo room than the other. It’s worth deciding if you want more cargo space or a smaller vehicle that may be easier to park on Springfield streets.

  • Cargo Room: With the second and third rows folded down, the 2019 VW Atlas interior can carry up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo. The Tiguan is able to carry up to 65.7 cubic feet with all seats folded.
  • Passenger Capacity: Both vehicles can carry up to seven passengers, but the Atlas has a third row standard in all configurations. A third-row package can be added to all 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan configurations, but it only comes standard if you settle for front-wheel drive.
  • Interior Volume: The Atlas offers up to 153.7 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the VW Tiguan interior reaches 123.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. This gives an edge over other compact SUVs, including the Honda CR-V.
