Handling Ranked 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SE 4Motion AWD with Technology better.
"Steering felt more responsive for the Atlas. Both vehicles had a good turning radius, and the Highlander may have felt like a lower center-of-gravity, but it also felt floaty in response to steering, while the Atlas was precise. "
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SE 4Motion AWD with Technology worse.
"The Highlanders front seats are pretty even in seat quality and comfort, but the interior is better wrapped around the driver than the Atlas. One caveat is that the Atlas provides more room for larger drivers, but the Highlander is a bit more comfortable for most drivers. "
Back Seats Ranked 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SE 4Motion AWD with Technology better.
"This was the easiest call. The Atlas has three rows of adult-size seating. While they dont try to cram three seats into the back row, you can actually sit two full-grown adults in both the second and third row, while the Highlanders back row is toddler-sized only. "
