VOLKSWAGEN ATLAS NAMED CARS.COM‘S “BEST 3-ROW SUV OF 2017”

 
Volkswagen of America, Inc. is pleased to announce that the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has won Cars.com’s Three-Row SUV Challenge and was named “Best 3-Row SUV of 2017.”

The Cars.com 2017 Three-Row SUV Challenge put four family haulers through intensive testing to determine the best option for shoppers. Contenders included the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, 2017 Honda Pilot, 2017 Toyota Highlander and 2018 Volkswagen Atlas.

“Volkswagen’s first SUV with a standard three rows of seats won this competition by one of the larger margins in Cars.com Challenge history,” said Jennifer Newman, Cars.com editor-in-chief. “The all-new three-row SUV stole the show with its refined driving manners, ample passenger and cargo space, and easy-to-use technology.”

“We are so proud of this win for the all-new Atlas,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Volkswagen of America, Inc. “Adding a three-row SUV to our lineup has been a long time coming, so it was paramount to get it right. Coming out first in a head-to-head comparison with several key competitors is evidence that we are doing just that.”

For the Challenge, vehicles tested could not exceed $46,000 MSRP, including all options and destination charges. Judges awarded points in 12 categories: interior quality, front-seat comfort, second-row comfort, third-row comfort, cargo storage, in-cabin storage, multimedia, powertrain, ride quality, noise, visibility and value. Each model was also awarded points for advanced active safety features and for its Cars.com Car Seat Check, which gauges the accommodation of various child-safety seats.
 

Testing resulted in the following ranking:

    1. 2018 Volkswagen Atlas (SEL V6 4Motion model tested)
    2. 2018 Chevrolet Traverse
    3. 2017 Honda Pilot
    4. 2017 Toyota Highlander

This is the second recent win for Volkswagen in a Cars.com Challenge. The redesigned Volkswagen Tiguan was ranked No. 1 in the 2017 Compact SUV Challenge.
