Volkswagen Atlas MPG
If you glance at the performance specs, these two SUVs might seem similar, and yet a quick look at the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas mpg numbers paints a different story: an SUV that can be both capable and efficient.
- The 2018 VW Atlas S 2.0T FWD earns an EPA-estimated 26 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city.
- The Hyundai Santa Fe, on the other hand, comes up with just 25 highway mpg and truly lags behind in the city at just 18 mpg.
Despite its superior fuel economy, the Atlas is also capable of towing as much as 5,000 pounds when properly equipped
Both the Atlas and the Santa Fe offer Naperville drivers access to rearview cameras, 4-wheel ABS, Blind Spot Warning, and more, but the Hyundai stops short of certain essential features:
- Standard Post-Collision Braking and Intelligent Crash Response are designed to prevent unnecessary harm in an accident, by applying the brakes, unlocking the doors, and turning off the vehicle’s fuel pump if it detects a collision.
- The Hyundai doesn’t offer post-collision braking or intelligent crash response, increasing the chances of additional impacts and making it harder for emergency crews to help victims.
