First of all, if you are looking for power and performance, both models have an admirable amount of power. Even so, the Honda Pilot does have more power and torque than the VW Atlas.

As you can see in the table above, the 2019 Honda Pilot delivers more space than the 2019 VW Atlas. This is apparent in the seating capacity. The VW Atlas can seat up to 7 people, but the Honda Pilot takes things a step further with its 8-person seating capacity.

You can see more advantages of the Pilot in the available technologies. You’ll have a convenient keyless ignition system and adaptive cruise control standard even in the base trim of the Pilot. Unlike the Honda model, the VW Atlas doesn’t have these two technologies standard in the base trim, so you’ll need to pay more by moving up a trim if you want these two technologies in your new SUV.

There are many more advantages of driving the 2019 Honda Pilot. Unfortunately, we couldn’t fit them all into a small table.
