New Volkswagen 2019 VW Atlas vs. 2019 Honda Pilot for Sale in West Warwick, RI

Overview: 2019 Atlas vs. 2019 Honda Pilot

When it was launched in 2018, the seven-passenger Volkswagen Atlas became the largest Volkswagen vehicle sold in America to date. That puts it into direct competition with the very popular Honda Pilot, which can seat either seven or eight, depending on the second-row configuration (a pair of captain’s chairs or a bench seat). Here, we’ll compare the major attributes of the 2019 versions of these vehicles.

Overall, the Atlas is more spacious than the Pilot, especially with headroom (take note, taller folks), yet it has a smaller turning radius and is therefore a tad more maneuverable. Each can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, but the Atlas can fit far more cargo inside. While the Pilot is in its third generation and hasn’t been refreshed since 2016, the Atlas is only in its second year of existence and retains that totally new look and feel. The top Atlas trim, the SEL Premium, comes standard with 4MOTION all-wheel drive, which is available on all of the other trims save for the base level. Similarly, there are five Pilot trims available, with AWD standard on the highest and available on all of the lower four.


Engines

The biggest differentiator between these two SUVs is that the base trim of the Atlas has an economical turbo-powered engine, a 2.0-liter 235 hp four-cylinder that achieves about 22 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Its other five main trims have a 276 hp 3.6-liter V6 that is rated by the EPA for 17 mpg city and 24 highway. The Pilot is powered by a 3.5-liter 280 hp V6 that’s rated for 19 city/27 highway. The Pilot has a six-speed automatic transmission, but the Atlas has an eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic for “manu-matic” shifting, plus a Sport mode that holds gears just a tad longer to keep the RPM higher for more exhilarating driving.


Standard Features

The base MSRPs and standard equipment offerings are closely matched on these two family-friendly vehicles. The Atlas, with a base MSRP of $30,895, is slightly lower than the Pilot’s base price of $31,450, and their highest-level trims are also very close in price. Each comes with a backup camera, but only the Atlas has all of its trims coming standard with a blind spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert (those features are available only on higher trim levels of the Pilot).

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas also comes with superior warranties. The VW fully transferable People First Warranty covers the whole vehicle for 72 months or 72,000 miles, while Honda gives just half that amount: 36 months or 36,000 miles. Volkswagen covers the Atlas against corrosion for 84 months, which is two years longer than the Honda covers the Pilot for. Both manufacturers supply 3 years of 24-hour emergency roadside assistance coverage.
