There's a lot to love about the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. Literally, there's a lot of it. At 78.3 inches wide, the Atlas is about 5 inches wider than the Toyota Highlander, but still a fraction of an inch narrower than the Honda Pilot. Of course, VW's horizontal design language emphasizes and exaggerates the width, giving it a broader appearancethan the Honda on the road.
The Atlas' 198.3-inch length leaves decent room for legs in its third row of seats (33.7 inches). I wouldn't call it spacious back there -- it's a squeeze for taller humans, especially with just 38.3 inches of headroom. But, aside from the lack of USB charging ports on the third row, it's not a bad spot for a small adult or child to spend a road trip, and actually quite generous for the class.
And, with both of its rear rows folded flat, the Altas bests the Highlander, Pilot and Mazda CX-9 for cargo capacity, at 96.8 cubic feet. If you're looking for space in your, ahem, "small sport utility vehicle," the Atlas is a fine choice. (How the EPA counts the Atlas as "small" while the Audi Q7, which is just 1.3 inches longer, is a "standard SUV" is beyond me.)
