ATLAS VS. EXPLORER
The new 2019 Volkswagen Atlas is a large, stylish 7-passenger SUV built for families and their stuff! The Atlas stands out from its competition with its roomy 3rd row, tons of cargo space and America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty!
The 2019 Atlas has 20.6 cu.ft of space behind the third row – only .4 cu.ft less than the Explorer. But VW’s Atlas makes up for that with its overall cargo space, offering a total of 96.8 cu.ft with both the second and third rows folded down. There’s only 81.7 cu.ft of overall cargo in the 2019 Ford Explorer.
Go with the SUV that was built for family and fun. The great, big Atlas can comfortably seat up to seven passengers with its spacious three rows. And there’s plenty of head-and legroom in all three rows. Autotrader had this to say about the roomy SUV, “Third-row seating in many crossovers is a cramped and awkwardly accessed affair. Not in the Atlas. ...It isn't just for kids back there.”.
