For our drivers who are conducting SUV research and undecided between popular VW sport utility vehicles like the new Volkswagen Tiguan and Volkswagen Atlas, our sales experts are here to assist you in making the best decision possible when it comes to driving home a new Volkswagen to the family. See below some of the differences between the Volkswagen Tiguan and it's larger counterpart, the Volkswagen Atlas.


Why Consider the Volkswagen Tiguan?

For the compact SUV seeker who wants the most for their money in a midsize and fuel-efficient package, the Volkswagen Tiguan is a popular vehicle choice for a variety of reasons. Look to a wonderful lineup of trims like the Volkswagen Tiguan S, S with 4MOTION, SE, SEL, SEL R-Line, SEL Premium, and more! Take on the roads of White Plains with the 184-horsepower 2.0-Liter Turbo engine, and opt for a trim that offers the 4MOTION all-wheel drive for enhanced traction and control when up against the icy or wet streets of Yorktown Heights.


With ample comfort within a variety of leather trim interior seating options, the Tiguan is a great vehicle for single drivers or small families who are searching for enough comfortable space for up to five or opt for the available third-row seating. The rear seats also fold forward and make enough room for up to 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space for the five-passenger Tiguan model.


Why Choose the New Volkswagen Atlas?

Of course the Volkswagen Atlas comes with similar technology and trims offered by the Tiguan, but if you're interested in more power and interior space with versatility, the new VW Atlas is one step up from the Tiguan. Drivers take to the highways with top-notch performance power from the 235-horsepower 2.0-Liter Turbo engine, and with the available 276-horsepower V6, with available all-wheel drive, you'll hold ample power and traction, unlike any other vehicle you've owned before!

The Atlas offers the same tech with connectivity through the Volkswagen Car-Net® App Connect® with the standard 6.5-inch entertainment center screen, and whether you carry Apple or an Android smartphone, look to the quick and responsive Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Holding similar available driver-assist features offered by the Tiguan like the Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor, and Lane Assist to name off just a few, the Atlas does, however, offer more interior space.


Compared to the smaller and less powerful Tiguan, the Volkswagen Atlas gives SUV seekers up to a total of up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space which is ideal for bringing home larger store items, or when packing in the family's camping gear. Also, with the innovative second-row seating, drivers can fit up to three car seats across the bench making it great for new parents or growing families who require additional space in a vehicle.
