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. Put all that together, and a full-size SUV still needs to be made available at an affordable price for consumers.
For that, we look at two prominent SUVs on the market. First, there is the first-year model of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas that should be expecting its 2019 model soon. Second, there's the 2019 Subaru Ascent with its new year updates. Let's find out which is the superior purchase for drivers. It's the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs the 2019 Subaru Ascent!
