2018 Nissan Armada vs 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Recent market trends have seen the full-size SUV fall largely out of favor with a growing subset of the population, mainly due to gas prices still higher than is comfortable to most, and also because of an increased emphasis on fuel efficiency and punch for the budget. That doesn't mean that there aren't still SUVs out there that demand your attention; today we're looking at the 2018 Nissan Altima and 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, relative newcomers to the industry, but unparalleled in the strength and sophistication they provide for consumers of all ages.

Our team at Fenton Nissan of Tiffany Springs is dedicated to bringing you a purchasing experience that's both comfortable and informative, so we've compiled some information on the Armada and Atlas models. Let's jump in and see how these two machines stack up head-to-head!

2018 Nissan Armada Kansas City MO

The first thing you'll notice about the 2018 Nissan Armada in Kansas City MO when compared to the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas model is how much better it can do in terms of power and precision. Its larger V8 option is capable of hauling much more than the Atlas can handle, and its stellar body size leads it to be able to hold up to 8 people inside (on premium leather stitched seating), one more than its counterpart can lay claim to. Though the Atlas does feature a 12.3-inch Digital Cockpit and other advanced tech features, there's no denying the Armada's clout in this regard. Its Intelligent Rear-View Monitor, a first in its class, allows you to see everything behind you in clarity, and a host of other driver assistance features onboard ensure that your drive is safe and secure. Some of these include:

  • Intelligent Cruise Control with Intelligent Distance Control
  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane Departure Warning with Intelligent Lane Intervention
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention
  • Intelligent Back-Up Intervention
  • Many more!
