The 2022 Volkswagen Atlas delivers more interior space
Space is important in a large family vehicle. And not only does the Atlas give you and your passengers more personal space, it also pushes the limits in terms cargo volume so your tribe can bring everything you need on those weekend getaways. For example, when it is full of passengers, the Kia Sorento leaves only 357 litres of cargo space. If you fold the passenger rows, you can increase this space to 2,139 litres.
The Volkswagen Atlas provides much more. When all three rows are full of passengers, you can fit 583 litres of cargo in the year. Fold the rows and get a whopping 2,741 litres of space to fit everything you need.
Your passengers will also take advantage of a superior cabin in terms of fit and finish. Volkswagen uses some of the best materials and textures in order to enhance driving experience for everyone on board. On the other hand, the Sorento resorts to hard plastics and very basic textures.
