The 2018 Atlas offers its own set of advantages. One of the biggest is its spaciousness, for it’s the largest Volkswagen ever built in the United States. While the Tiguan is 10.6 inches longer for the 2018 model-year, it can't match the cavernous 153.7 cu-ft of total passenger volume and 96.8 cu-ft maximum cargo capacity of the 2018 Atlas. The new Atlas also boasts the more powerful engine options, with the 238-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or an available 276-hp 3.6-liter VR6 engine. In comparison, the 2018 Tiguan's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces an output of 184 horsepower.
Ultimately, your choice between the VW Tiguan and VW Atlas comes down to your specific needs: the lower price and higher fuel economy of the Tiguan vs the larger size and more powerful engines of the Atlas. Either way, you'll get a refined and sophisticated SUV with world-renowned Volkswagen craftsmanship.
