2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2018 Honda Pilot

2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2018 Honda Pilot

For those with a big family, there are really only 2 vehicle options available. You can get an SUV or a minivan. However, while minivans can be comfortable and spacious, they also lack the grit, power, and fun that an SUV provides.

Therefore, you need space, power, and size. That means you need a full-size SUV, not just a compact that only seats up to 5 passengers. From the SUV class, there are only a handful of models that fit that description. Luckily, we've got 2 strong contenders that fit that mold, and we're going to compare them today. It's the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs the 2018 Honda Pilot!
