Looking for a family-friendly SUV to get you and your loved ones to different events and activities around Newton, Hackettstown, and Sparta? You'll need something spacious and of course, a vehicle with plenty of technology to keep everyone occupied.

You also will want a safe ride that gives you more confidence and peace of mind while driving. To see which SUV covers all of this and more, our Volkswagen World of Newton team took two of the most popular 3-row SUVs and placed them side by side. Discover below what you'll get with the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas vs. 2021 Honda Pilot.

VW Atlas vs Pilot: Interior Space

When looking for a new SUV, chances are you need a spacious vehicle. Luckily, with either, you will have three rows of seating, which provides room for the whole family and even more.

Everyone will have a more comfortable ride inside the Volkswagen Atlas. That is because it comes with 154 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to the 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume inside the 2021 Pilot.

That difference will be felt behind the wheel, too. In the front row of the 2021 VW Atlas, there is 41.3 inches of headroom and 41.7 inches of legroom. The Honda Pilot has 40.1 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom in its front row.

They each can be converted to give you a great deal of space for cargo when you don't need to use all that passenger space. Inside the 2021 Pilot, there is 83.9 cubic feet of standard cargo volume behind the first row. With the rear seats folded down in the Volkswagen Atlas, you will get 96.8 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Making Your Ride More Personalized & Convenient

While both SUVs have a range of technology features, a little more personalization is provided in the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas. That is because it features the available Volkswagen Digital Cockpit. This high-resolution display gives you a customized view of everything you want to stay informed about while driving.

Right in front of you on your dashboard, this will be able to display your speed, fuel economy, travel time to your destination, and more. Beyond that, it can store up to four driver profiles, so all you have to do is select yours when you get in the 2021 VW Atlas and the vehicle will automatically adjust various settings and systems to your liking.

This display can even give you a full-screen view of the available navigation system, so you can easily see where you are and when your next turn is coming up. The Honda Pilot doesn't have a dashboard display that is capable of all the personal convenience you will have in the Volkswagen Atlas.

Driver-Assistive Features

While each SUV has a variety of safety technology, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas offers more standard and available driver-assistive systems. While only available in the 2021 Honda Pilot, the Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Traffic Alert come standard in the VW Atlas.

These systems are able to scan your surroundings while cruising along the highway or backing out of a parking spot. If they detect an oncoming car, they will alert you, so you can wait until it is safe to change lanes or continue reversing.

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is also the only one of these two models to offer available Parking Steering Assist. With this system, the VW Atlas can find an open parallel or perpendicular spot, then help steer the vehicle into the open space.
