2019 Volkswagen Atlas Delivers Better Strength & Endurance

If you’re among those who desire the best of all worlds with your next crossover SUV, the choice is virtually made for you with the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. By “best of all worlds,” that is to include power, comfort, looks, and space. Perhaps most enticing of all is the mind-blowing amount of space inside the Atlas you won’t find with the competition.

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas comes in S, SE, and SEL trims, each of which delivers an impressive power package of its own.

One perk to buying with us is the Volkswagen of Gainesville Advantage. With this package, free with every vehicle purchase, you will enjoy such amenities as complimentary car washes every time you bring your vehicle in for service and a free oil change and rotation of tires. That’s right. Your first oil change service and tire rotation with us is on the house. The Advantage also includes a 3-day exchange guarantee and 10-year/100,000-mile warranty* on virtually every car we sell.

For much more information about the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and how it sizes up against – and excels over – its competition, like the Honda Pilot, continue reading.

Masculine Exterior Gels With Spacious, Comfortable Interior

When it comes to the stylish, confident look of the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, seeing is believing. And, trust us, those around you on the road will both see and believe. By comparison, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas has an 8-inch ground clearance, as opposed to 7 inches on the Honda Pilot. The Atlas’ extra inch gives it a distinct advantage when off-roading.

The interior, though, is where the greatest magic happens. In a world where we all need our space, nowhere will you find more room than inside the new Atlas. With genuine, comfortable space for up to 7, the Volkswagen Atlas is ideal for family outings or weekend getaways with friends.

Behind the 3rd row, there is 20.6 cubic feet of space. With the 3rd set of seats folded down, cargo space grows to 55.5 cubic feet, and with both rear sets of seats down, cargo space balloons to nearly 97 cubic feet.

Unlike the Honda Pilot, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas places more practical emphasis on space and comfort over dressy finishes. That doesn’t mean the Atlas lacks style. At the base level, quality cloth covers the seats. A synthetic leather is standard on the SE and SEL, while the SEL Premium trim treats you to genuine leather. Heated and cooled front seats are also standard or optional. A panoramic moonroof is also available at the SEL level.

To get the best feel for the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, you really need to experience it first-hand. Visit the preferred car dealership in Gainesville, FL for a test drive and claim your space on the road.

More Power, Better Performance

While you’ve read a lot about the remarkably-enticing interior of the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, what you’ll find under the hood is equally as impressive.

The Atlas begins at the base level with a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder, but higher trims feature a 3.6-liter V6, which doles out 266 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the Honda Pilot’s 3.5-liter V6 produces 262 lb-ft of torque. Also, the Atlas features an 8-speed automatic, as opposed to the standard 6-speed automatic for the Pilot.

When money matters, consider also that the Volkswagen Atlas gets an average of 24 MPG (city/highway combined), while the Pilot offers up about 22 MPG.

Innovative Tech Specs Keep You Ahead Of The Competition

Chances are, you’ll have a host of folks to entertain in the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. One of the best ways to do that is with the help of outstanding technology.

When it comes to infotainment, the Atlas rises to the occasion. At the base level, a 6.5-inch touchscreen is standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. At the base level of the Honda Pilot, the touchscreen measures in at just 5 inches. Higher trims on the Atlas increase the infotainment touchscreen to 8 inches. Premium Fender® audio is available at the SEL trim level, as is built-in navigation.

Multiple USB ports placed throughout, including the 3rd row on some trims, allows everyone to keep a full charge.
