2019 Honda Pilot vs 2019 Volkswagen Atlas

Buying a family car used to be a bit of a bummer for most customers. The only options out there were big, boxy minivans that lacked any style. Thankfully, our options have expanded a lot since then. You have a lot more options when it comes to picking a family car.  

The more important thing, now, is figuring out which vehicle has the style and substance for you. Many families opt for an SUV instead of the traditional minivan. SUVs offer the space and efficiency needed, but are a lot more adaptable and flexible. There are a lot of SUVs claiming to be the perfect fit, so how do you know which one really is? Well, let’s take a look at the 2019 Honda Pilot and the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas to see if we can figure it out.
