The Volkswagen Tiguan
When it comes to young families buying a vehicle that will fit their growing family comfortably, many are looking at the compact crossover segment for the right fit. The loyal, reliable, and hardworking VW Tiguan has fresh lines and exciting performance.
Crossovers are popular for a number of reasons. They are comfortable, safe, spacious, and versatile — in other words, the perfect vehicle for a young family. Equipped with Front Assist, Side Assist, and Rear Traffic Alert, the Tiguan is one of the safest places a young family could be.
The Volkswagen Atlas
Comfortably seating seven passengers, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas has the headroom, legroom, and space to keep you and your nearest and dearest comfortable.
Based on a survey that the staff at Cars.com used, the Volkswagen Atlas was voted to be the best family SUV of 2020. The Ford Expedition landed in second place, and the Hyundai Santa Fe came in third. So, wow, the Kia Telluride didn’t even make the list.
The best family SUVs are ranked according to safety crash test ratings, value, comfort, space, family accommodations, family-friendly features, and versatility. The Atlas seems to top the list for its large interior, comfortable ride, and the long list of standard safety features.
Combining in-car technology with the spacious three rows of seating, the 2020 VW Atlas is your best choice for a family car. The Atlas provides the comfort and room to take the whole family with you wherever you go.
The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport
The Atlas Cross Sport is an all-new addition to the Volkswagen lineup for 2020, slotting into the same mid-size-SUV segment as the regular Atlas on which it is based.
The Cross Sport is among the roomiest vehicles in its class. It has the same 117.3-inch wheelbase as the 5.2-inch longer three-row Atlas. With a spacious front seat and wide center console with a deep storage bin, the Atlas Cross Sport achieves its goal toward more passenger and cargo space.
Controls include an easy-to-use touch screen and buttons and dials for climate, volume and tuning.
Atlas Cross Sports are equipped with automated emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. Some of the key safety features include:
- Standard automated emergency braking with forward-collision warning
- Standard blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross-traffic alert
- Available adaptive cruise control with a semi-autonomous driving mode
The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport starts at $31,565 (all prices include the destination charge) for the 2.0T with front-wheel drive. The SEL model we tested was $42,700, and it packs in a lot of similar features and styling upgrades as a comparable 2021 VW Atlas 2.0T SEL with all-wheel drive for $950 less.
