With all their space and technology features, the choice for families in Irvine, Garden Grove, and San Juan Capistrano looking for a new SUV might come down to the Volkswagen Atlas vs. Hyundai Palisade.
Our team here at Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Irvine is ready to help you decide which of these two models is best for you. Start by learning more about what each car offers in our comparison of the 2020 VW Atlas vs. Palisade below.
Cargo Space of the Volkswagen Atlas vs Hyundai Palisade
No matter if you’re just grabbing groceries, doing a big shopping trip at Irvine Spectrum Center, or packing up gear for your day at the beach, you’ll need an SUV with plenty of versatile space to fit everything you need to take with you.
While both these models come with plenty of room for friends and family among all three rows, the VW Atlas has more room in the back for additional items. Behind all three rows, there’s 20.6 cubic feet of cargo volume. The Hyundai Palisade has 18 cubic feet of cargo volume in the back.
If you need more room for your bags or supplies, you can fold down the rear seats in either SUV to use more interior space for your cargo. The 2020 Palisade gives you 45.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and up to 86.4 cubic feet of cargo volume when all the back seats are folded down.
The Volkswagen Atlas has even more space for cargo with 55.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 96.8 cubic feet behind the front row.
We’ve all been there: scanning the streets as we look for the closest spot to the beach or going up and down rows of a parking lot wondering where there’s an open spot. Then, when you come upon an opening, you might second guess if your car is too big to fit into that space.
Thanks to the technology in the 2020 VW Atlas and the 2020 Palisade, parking is a much simpler task. The Hyundai Palisade will help you pull in or back into a parking spot with the help of Parking Distance Warning. With its standard reverse sensor and available front sensor, this system will help you avoid any other car or object when parking.
The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas can help even more when you’re trying to park. Available Park Distance Control will also scan your surroundings, while available Parking Steering Assistant can actually steer your car into a parallel or perpendicular space for you. It even will signal when it finds a space along the street that your SUV can fit into.
Picking Between the Volkswagen Atlas vs Hyundai Palisade
While both cars offer a lot of similar features when it comes to your entertainment options, safety, and overall performance, the difference in space and everyday convenience of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas is something drivers in Irvine, Garden Grove, and San Juan Capistrano aren’t going to want to pass up.
