The Volkswagen Atlas is the choice of families in three-row SUVs here in the Twin Cities. From its capable 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system to the Driver Confidence Package, the Atlas has become the choice in its class, satisfying families with its space and performance.

Our customers at Volkswagen of Inver Grove asked us how it compares with its contemporaries. For many reasons, we believe our Atlas is better than any SUV in its class.

How? Take a look at this comparison between the Atlas and the Kia Telluride.

There are many reasons why you should consider the Atlas over the Telluride:

  • More expansive cargo area
  • A roomier passenger area for seven passengers, including a larger third-row seating area
  • Excellent connectivity through Car-Net, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink
  • Smooth and pure V6 power with an eight-speed automatic transmission for superior passing and provides ease of operation overall
  • German engineering and technology
  • A New Vehicle Limited Warranty* covering 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever occurs first
