Are you thinking about getting behind the wheel of a three-row SUV? Here at Capistrano Volkswagen, we encourage you to take a look at the 2019 VW Atlas, with its roomy and well-equipped interior, superb driving dynamics, excellent performance, and generous warranty coverage. See how the 2019 Atlas stacks up against the three-row SUV competition in this 2019 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2019 Mazda CX-9 comparison.
On the performance front, the Atlas offers the available 3.6-liter VR6 engine, which churns out 276 horsepower. The CX-9 comes equipped with the turbocharged SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine, which generates 250 horsepower. The Atlas is the better option for towing, with a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, compared to 3,500 pounds for the CX-9. While both SUVs offer an available all-wheel drive system, the Atlas uniquely has an Active Control function, with four different modes for various terrain conditions.
Another advantage of the Atlas is its roomy interior. While both SUVs can seat up to seven passengers, the Atlas offers more passenger space, with a total passenger volume of 153.7 cu-ft, compared to 135.1 cu-ft for the CX-9. The Atlas also offers more storage space, with a maximum cargo capacity of 96.8 cu-ft, compared to 71.2 cu-ft for the CX-9.
Do you place a premium on warranty coverage? The 2019 Atlas has the backing of a very generous 6-years/72,000-miles Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty. The 2019 CX-9 has a 3-years/36,000-miles basic warranty and a 5-years/60,000-miles powertrain warranty.
