Interior Cargo Dimensions: VW Atlas vs Palisade

Both the VW Atlas and the Hyundai Palisade are great SUVs for grabbing the whole family and hitting the road. Both vehicles fit seven people with plenty of space left over for luggage.

The Hyundai Palisade has a total of 86.4 cubic feet of cargo space. With all seats up so no one is left behind, the Palisade still has an impressive 18 cubic feet of cargo space. You can fit the rough equivalent of six large suitcases.

The VW Atlas has even more room for cargo with a total of 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space. With all seats up and occupied, you still get 20.6 cubic feet of space-roughly equaling seven suitcases. That amount of space can make the difference between someone riding with luggage on their lap and a comfortable road trip.

VW Atlas vs Palisade: Technology

Both the VW Atlas and Hyundai Palisade have a ton of technology to keep you connected on the road. Each vehicle comes standard with an infotainment system and touchscreen.

With these infotainment systems, you can connect your smartphone to your SUV with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. You can stream your favorite music, use your smartphone's navigation, and answer calls or texts through your SUV.

Where the VW Atlas begins to separate from the Palisade is with the available Volkswagen Car-Net®. Volkswagen Car-Net® is a mobile app that gives you access to your VW Atlas when you are not in your vehicle. You can remote start your VW Atlas, get parking information, Family Guardian alerts, and more.

Safety and Driver-Assist Features: VW Atlas vs Palisade

So you can have peace of mind while you're on the go, the VW Atlas and Palisade both come equipped with safety and driver-assist features. The Palisade suite of features is called Hyundai SmartSense.
