The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Honda Pilot ranks among the very best three-row crossover SUVs; it’s all about the packaging. The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas does little wrong, but it's light on personality and a little low-rent inside—and it guzzles fuel. It's worth a look, but mostly rivals do more for less.
