Why Atlas?



We know you're interested in the Santa Fe, but the long-awaited 2018 Atlas is not only Volkswagen’s newest vehicle, it’s also VW's biggest. Even bigger than the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. The Atlas has a cargo capacity of 96.8 cu.ft. versus the Santa Fe’s 80.0 cu.ft. That means the Atlas can hold more than 16.0 cu.ft. of cargo vs. the Santa Fe. More cargo space means more room for you and all your stuff!

Not to mention, when you’re not using the second and third row seats to store cargo, you can fit up to 7 passengers comfortably. The Atlas leads its class in 3rd-row legroom with 33.7 inches. The big Hyundai can only hold up to 6 passengers with 30.9 inches of 3rd-row legroom.

Both the Atlas and Santa Fe come close in the battle of gas mileage, but the Atlas comes out on top! Get an estimated 23 mpg highway with the VW Atlas compared to 22 mpg’s for the Hyundai Santa Fe.

The Atlas and Santa Fe offer similar safety features including parking assist, blind-spot monitoring systems and lane departure warning. But I think we both can agree, the Volkswagen wins in the ‘looks’ department.

For many years Hyundai has been the industry leader in new car warranties, but Volkswagen has just stepped into the ring to claim that title. Volkswagen’s People First Warranty now offers new Volkswagen owners six years or 72,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper transferable coverage (including powertrain components). Hyundais only have 5 years/60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and it’s not transferable.
