Can the 2020 Toyota Highlander in Albuquerque NM Compare to the 2020 VW Atlas?

 

Being that both the 2020 Toyota Highlander in Albuquerque NM and the 2020 VW Atlas are outfitted with modern exteriors, spacious interiors, and advanced safety and technological amenities, which SUV would be the best fit for you?

The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas presents a sophisticated yet sporty exterior with oversize fender flares. The 117.3-inch long wheelbase provides a smooth ride while maintaining its composure at high speeds. Heavy crosswinds don't stand a chance against the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas; steering remains steady. With the twist of a knob drivers can meet the challenges of dirt roads and winter weather with ease by choosing from various traction control modes. Adult passengers can be accommodated in all three rows of the 2020 VW Atlas and the SUV is still able to fit easily inside a standard garage. 

Three trim levels are offered on the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas: S, SE, and SEL.  Standard amenities included on all trim levels include cloth upholstery, Car-Net infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android auto compatibility, safety features, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Automatic braking, blind-spot monitors, and rear cross-traffic alerts are standard safety features included with every 2020 VW Atlas. These features helped earn the 2019 VW Atlas high crash test ratings from the IIHS. For even more peace of mind, Volkswagen offers a four-year/50,000-mile warranty, which includes maintenance and oil changes for the first two years. 

The 2020 Toyota Highlander in Albuquerque NM has been redesigned with a sleeker exterior look. The trim levels offered are L, LE, XLE, Limited, and Platinum. The 2020 Highlander can accommodate seven or eight passengers based on the trim level. With a length of 194.9-inches long, 2.36-inches longer than the 2019 model, the interior is more spacious than before. Unfortunately, it still doesn't beat the comfort of the Atlas. Drivers can choose from Mud & Sand mode or Rock & Dirt mode to maximize traction, though it lacks Snow Mode offered in the VW Atlas. Based on trim level, the 2020 Highlander has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Standard amenities on all trim levels include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Alexa In-Car compatibility, and 18-inch alloy wheels. This list cannot compete with the lengthy feature list of the VW Atlas. Toyota does, however, offer a one-year complimentary subscription for Toyota Safety Connect on all trim levels along with select Toyota Safety Sense 20.9 features.
