The chart above highlights several similarities between the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and the 2019 Honda Pilot. The Atlas comes out just slightly ahead in two of these cases. It gets a slightly better overall fuel economy, and if you are a city driver you will be pleased to know that it gets three mpg better in the city than the Pilot. Next up is the Starting MSRP category. Again, the Atlas comes out slightly ahead, but not necessarily enough to make a huge difference. Engines may be a matter of some preference. With the Pilot, you’ll get a larger engine capacity, but the Atlas has a turbocharged engine for optimal performance. Lastly, they both have a variety of exterior colors, including neutrals and shades of blue and red.

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas comes out ahead in the warranty category too. There’s a reason its warranty is advertised as America’s best bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. It is because The People First Warranty, which covers almost all new Volkswagen vehicles, can cover a vehicle longer than its competition. With the purchase of a new Volkswagen vehicle, The People First Warranty will extend for up to six years or 72,000 miles, whichever one comes first. The standard for the 2019 Honda Pilot is basic for a vehicle warranty. It lasts for up to three years or 36,000 miles, which means you only get half the coverage that you would with the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas.
