VW Atlas vs Subaru Ascent: Interior Space

When looking for a new 3-row SUV, you'll want to make sure you have as much space as possible. That's so you can make sure the whole family is comfortable and there's room for any supplies or gear you need to pack into your vehicle.

Plus, third row of the VW Atlas is more spacious with 38.3 inches of headroom and 33.7 inches of legroom. In the 2022 Ascent, the third-row seats have 36.2 inches of headroom and 31.7 inches of legroom.

Features Found in the 2022 VW Atlas vs Subaru Ascent

Along with the space they provide for passengers and cargo, both SUVs also comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen display. This will let you choose the entertainment you want for the ride, whether that's your favorite radio station or a custom playlist you made.

Another digital display is also standard in the Volkswagen. That would be the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit. This gives you a great view right on your dashboard of key driving information you want to be alert of as you drive. Unfortunately, this isn't a feature you'll find in the Subaru Ascent.

Subaru Ascent vs Volkswagen Atlas: Safety Features

Both SUVs are designed to help you get from one place to another safely. That's because they each have their own bundle of driver-assistive features that are ready to help keep you alert as you drive and take action when needed most.

On top of the standard driver-assistive features this Volkswagen SUV has, the 2022 VW Atlas offers available safety technologies, which include:

  • Travel Assist: This offers hands-on semi-autonomous driving for added confidence and an even more relaxing commute along the highway.
  • Park Assist: This can help you determine if a spot is big enough for your vehicle and then provide steering assistance to safely fit your car into the space.
  • Dynamic Road Sign Display: This can display information from traffic signs you pass, so you always know what the speed limit is and aware of other road information.

While the Subaru Ascent has EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, it doesn't offer any of the features listed above that you can get with the VW Atlas.
