2019 Volkswagen Atlas vs. Chevrolet Traverse
In the days before the internet, you needed an atlas to carve your path for your adventures far and wide. The same can still be said if you need a family-friendly SUV for your next road trip: You need the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. When pitted against esteemed competitors like the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse, it becomes clear why the Atlas is the superior choice for your journey.
You know that the Atlas will have you covered longer than other SUVs when it’s protected by The People First Warranty, otherwise known as America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty.* The Volkswagen Atlas gets a 6-year/72,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which doubles the length and mileage of the basic warranty offered with the Traverse.
Better still, if you purchase your 2019 Volkswagen Atlas from Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati, you’ll also get our Joseph Complimentary Limited Powertrain Warranty. This covers major engine, transmission, and drivetrain components for the full life of the vehicle as long as you own it. If you want the ultimate in protection, you want the one-two punch of America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty and the Joseph Complimentary Limited Powertrain Warranty.
You need to be confident that your SUV will take care of you and your family in the event of a collision. The Atlas gives you more of that confidence than the Traverse can, boasting a higher Overall Front Star Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In New Car Assessment Program testing, the Atlas earned five stars overall for driver and front passenger safety while the Traverse only scored four stars. The Atlas also scored better in the Rollover Resistance test with NHTSA determining a 15.9 percent rollover risk compared to the Traverse’s 16.9 percent risk level.
The Atlas also boasts standard Front Assist and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System technologies. Front Assist includes Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, which monitors traffic in front of you and can bring your Atlas to a slow or a stop when needed. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System helps bring your Atlas to a stop after a collision, reducing the probability of an additional impact.** Forward Collision Alert and Forward Automatic Braking are only available on higher trims of the Traverse, and the Traverse does not offer its own version of the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System.
When you factor in the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas’ winning style, exhilarating performance dynamics, and top-of-the-line technologies, there’s no question that it’s the superior choice for your next family-friendly SUV. Experience the new Atlas at Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati.
