Space Inside the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas vs Subaru Ascent

When looking to buy a new SUV, one thing you may be specifically looking for is a spacious interior that gives you the versatility to fit multiple passengers and cargo inside the vehicle. With both of these SUVs, you will get three rows of seating to fit everyone that is coming along for the ride comfortably.

You can also adjust the seats and how they are arranged to utilize the space for cargo. Both allow you to fold down the second and third-row seating to access the extra space. The Atlas goes further with the ability to simply slide the second row forward to get to the third row easier.

In the 2019 Atlas, there is a greater amount of room to fit your cargo with a maximum of 97 cu. ft. of cargo volume. The Subaru Ascent only gives you up to 86.5 cu. ft. of cargo volume with 47.5 cu. ft. behind the second row. The VW Atlas provides more room behind the second row with 55.5 cu. ft. of volume for cargo. So, you can fit both passengers and whatever items you need to bring along for the day in the Atlas!

Each of these vehicles have passive and active safety features that can help you remain out of harm's way when driving. These include advanced driver-assistive technologies that allow the vehicle to aid you in various driving situations you may come across. A few of these features are standard in the 2019 Atlas that require an upgrade to have in the Ascent.

These includes Blind-Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Blind-Spot Monitor will let you know when there is a vehicle currently in your blind spot.
