2018 Kia Sorento vs. 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

There's a war brewing in the midsize SUV class, as two models from this ever-popular segment are staking a claim as two of the top models of the lot. While the 2018 Kia Sorento comes from familiar stock, and is well-known for being a safe and rugged vehicle with plenty of room on the inside, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is a bit of an enigma, as the vehicle is in its first model year. We'll take the guesswork out of the comparison possibilities and compare them side-by-side!

The 2018 Atlas occupies a narrow space for VW, as the automaker already has a small SUV in the Tiguan and a midsize SUV in the Touareg, although the 2018 Atlas is priced lower than the Touareg and is marketed toward growing families. It carries an MSRP of more than $30,000, while the 2018 Kia Sorento is less than $26,000 MSRP at Friendly Kia, and we have VIP Prices that discount thousands off MSRP for all trim levels and save you money compared to the Atlas!
