Which Should You Get?

It depends on what you want out of your new Volkswagen SUV. If space is the deciding factor, not cost, then the Atlas is the way to go. Don’t need a three-row SUV? Then the Atlas Cross Sport or two-row Tiguan is a good option. If you want something more than a turbo-charged four-cylinder engine, then the V6 Atlas and V6 Atlas Cross Sport variants are right up your alley.  Every vehicle has its own pros and cons, so consider each carefully.
