Those searching for a new Volkswagen Atlas for sale around Bethlehem will find it has plenty of impressive tech, features, and power. But how does it fare against the competition? Take a preliminary look at the new VW Atlas vs. Honda Pilot comparison before we dive deeper:

  • An improved city highway mpg efficiency in the VW Atlas makes it a better selection for cruising through Allentown.
  • The Volkswagen Atlas interior affords greater connectivity and more cargo and passenger volume.
  • The unassuming 2021 Pilot pales in comparison to the striking 2021 Atlas redesign.

Take a closer look at the full specifications, pricing options, and features in the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot matchup with Young Volkswagen below.


Volkswagen Atlas vs. Honda Pilot: Interior Features

The VW Atlas vs. Honda Pilot head-to-head comparison reveals both come well-appointed with great connectivity and entertainment features, such as a multi-function steering wheel, rear view camera display, dual-zone climate control, and USB ports. However, comfort in the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas interior is enhanced a number of standard features not found in the 2021 Pilot base trim: 

  • Auto-dimming interior rearview mirror
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility
  • 3 power outlets
  • Volkswagen Car-Net® Remote Access with 5-years standard
  • Volkswagen Car-Net® Hotspot with 1-month/1GB trial subscription

Also note that the standard 5-inch entertainment display on the 2021 Honda Pilot is woefully inadequate compared to the 6.5-inch Color Composition display in the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas interior.
