2020_atlas_cross_sport

The Atlas Cross Sport is an exciting new mid-size SUV that is generating excitement in the crossover market in Canada. Known for its power options and handling, it offers a driving experience that takes on many top competitors such as the 2020 Honda Passport. Here, we line up and compare both vehicles in key areas to help with your research.

The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport has your back

One of the greatest values in purchasing a new vehicle is the warranty. Volkswagen offers a four-year / 80,000 km (whichever comes first) new-vehicle limited warranty on all Atlas Cross Sport models. You won’t find a warranty that goes that long on the Passport, which is only three years / 60,000 km. You will have a better peace of mind over the years knowing that the Cross Sport has extended confidence from Volkswagen.

When you test drive the Atlas Cross Sport and compare it to the Pilot, you will notice some differences when both vehicles handle turns and curvy roads. The height of the Passport (+112 mm) combined with its significantly narrower wheelbase (-163 mm) may cause the Pilot to feel top-heavy and less nimble. The Atlas Cross Sport’s lower center of gravity, wider wheelbase and greater length create a more stable platform, giving you the confidence to take on many roads with your family inside.

The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport offers engine options for your needs

The Atlas Cross Sport provides the choice of two capable engines. The Trendline and Comfortline include a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that generates 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The Execline and Comfortline (optional) trims feature a 3.6L six-cylinder engine that generates 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. The Honda Passport includes a single engine - a 3.5L six-cylinder that produces less torque. If you want a variety of engine choices, the Atlas Cross Sport provides options.

All Atlas Cross Sport trims also receive AWD, an advanced eight-speed automatic transmission, a start/stop system with regenerative braking, speed-sensitive power steering, Driving Profile Selection and electronic parking brake.

The Atlas Cross Sport offers an impressive line of interior features, including more rear legroom than the Pilot.
