We have been sharing a lot about the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas on our blog, and it will be available at our dealership *very soon! Even though the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is still on the assembly line, we have been talking with customers who are curious about this new large crossover, and one of the most frequent questions that we are asked is if the VW Atlas or the long-time favorite VW Touareg is right for them. We are equally enamored with both of these vehicles, but we are excited to share the differences so that you will be completely happy with your purchase.

What are the Differences Between the 2018 VW Atlas and 2017 VW Touareg?

One of the most noticeable differences between the 2018 VW Atlas and 2017 VW Touareg is their size. The 2017 VW Touareg is 188.8 inches long and is classified as a midsize crossover. It can seat up to five passengers and has a 32.1 / 64-cubic foot cargo space. This makes the 2017 VW Touareg a great choice for singles, couples, and smaller families who are active and need plenty of cargo space for daily living and weekend adventures.

The 2018 VW Atlas, on the other hand, is much longer at 198.3 inches. As a full size crossover, the 2018 VW Atlas has three rows of seats that can accommodate up to seven passengers and offers a 20.6 / 55.5 / 96.8-cubic foot cargo space. The 2018 VW Atlas is the perfect choice for larger families or those who live by the motto, “the more, the merrier”.

Another difference between the two crossovers is their engine options. The 2018 VW Atlas is available with either a 235 horsepower 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder (2,000-pound towing capacity) or a 276 horsepower 3.6L V6 (2,000 to 5,000-pound towing capacity). These engines are strong enough to tow a trailer loaded with ATVs or supplies for that big DIY project.

For heavier loads like large boats or a livestock trailer, there is the 2017 VW Touareg, which can tow up to 7,716 pounds with the help of its 280 horsepower 3.6L V6 engine.

Like we said, we love the 2018 VW Atlas and 2017 VW Touareg equally and each model can work perfectly for you in a variety of ways. If you have any questions, please stop by our dealership and talk to our sales team.

*Please note that the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is expected to arrive at Douglas Volkswagen in May 2017.
