Right now, there are dozens of dealerships in South Florida with Memorial Day sales on SUVs. Before you get too excited about those deals, be sure to do your research. Our South Florida families tend to consider SUVs due to their many benefits. SUVs are meant to seat more people more comfortably, carry more cargo efficiently, are designed to be safer and typically have towing capabilities. It’s possible you’ve considered the 2019 Toyota Highlander; we ask you to reconsider.
If you are looking for a large SUV with ample space, you’ll be disappointed to learn the Toyota Highlander’s third row is cramped. Children may fit easily, but adults would have a hard time getting comfortable. The new 2019 VW Atlas boasts space for 7 passengers with back rows large enough to seat adults comfortably. In the 2019 Toyota Highlander, KBB says, “If you’re trying to make the very most of your space, rivals like the Honda Pilot and VW Atlas have a bit more room.”
When it comes to the Toyota, you may also be dissatisfied with the lack of technology. The new SUV still doesn’t have smartphone app integration. That means no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. It’s also been noted that the controls are hard to reach because of their placement; many drivers report having to stretch to reach them. On the other hand, the Volkswagen Atlas has a beautiful cabin, a large touch screen with Apple Car Play and Android Auto as well as easily accessible dashboard controls.
The 2019 Toyota Highlander has a total of 83.7 cu. ft. of cargo space – which falls on the smaller side for its class. A better option would be the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas with a maximum of 96.8 cu. ft. of cargo space.
Forget the 2019 Toyota Highlander. This Memorial Day, consider another option. The 2019 VW Atlas makes for a better SUV for South Florida families. And it’s on sale, now through Memorial Day with extra incentives, special finance options and a low lease payment. Visit your local South Florida Volkswagen dealer for specials on new cars, trucks and SUVS like the spacious and tech-savvy 2019 Volkswagen Atlas.
