There is a long list of things that an SUV must do and have in order to live up to expectations, and the new 2020 Volkswagen Atlas marks off every box with ease. Our VW dealers serving Parkville, MD at Heritage Volkswagen Catonsville are firm believers that in order to show the value of our VW models, we have to put our money where our mouth is and pit them against some of their leading competitors.

Of all the SUVs out there worth competing with the VW Atlas, the Toyota Highlander is at the top of the list. The 2020 Toyota Highlander is a decently built, full-size SUV with plenty of power and space. However, it pales in comparison to the VW Atlas. 

Interior Space

When it comes to interior space, the VW Atlas blows the competition out of the water. The Toyota Highlander does provide some pretty stellar interior cargo room, maxing out at 84.3 cubic feet. However, it falls short of the VW Atlas, which boasts 97 cubic feet of cargo room as a maximum with both rear seats folded flat. As a result, the Volkswagen Atlas is far more comfortable for both passengers and cargo. 


The VW Atlas near Parkville, MD and the Toyota Highlander share similar engine offerings and ratings, however, the systems that support each ride is where they differ. The Volkswagen Atlas, for example, integrates Active Control with its 4MOTION® all-wheel-drive system. The Toyota Highlander, while it does offer all-wheel drive, fails to integrate a similar system. The VW Atlas comes standard with both hill descent control and hill start assist, but the Toyota Highlander only provides hill start assist as standard equipment.
