2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2019 Subaru Ascent

Full-size SUVs need to accomplish a lot. They need 3-row seating, a large adjustable cargo space, onboard technology infotainment and driver assistance features, a powerful engine to haul all passengers and luggage, and a fuel economy that is still efficient for its size.
