2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs. 2018 Honda Odyssey

For decades the minivan was seen as the perfect model of transportation for families. Today, that has changed. Now families are looking for something a little different than the traditional minivan. The demand for large, three-row crossover SUVs has exploded and auto makers are rising to the occasion by offering even more options.

The 2018 Volkswagen is a perfect example of this. It's all-new for the model year and is the first three-row crossover SUV in the Volkswagen lineup. Take a step inside the cabin and you will find a spacious, premium interior packed with a generous array of high-tech entertainment and convenience features. Standard features are plentiful and include a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, power mirrors, a rearview camera, dual-zone manual climate control and much more. But how does the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas compare to minivan competitors, like the 2018 Honda Odyssey?

Inside the cabin the 2018 Atlas also feels much more high-end thanks to premium materials and high-tech features.
