The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is a full-sized SUV. Its large size and seating space for 7 has been a very appealing factor for families and carpooling. However, the Atlas is no longer alone in the Volkswagen catalog for spacious seating features. Now that the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan offers a 7-seat ride for passengers, that puts it on par with the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas.

However, seating isn’t the only big factor of an SUV model. Signature draws of an SUV are its strong build, its high ride height, its powerful engine, and a large amount of space. And, when people talk about how much room is in an SUV they don’t just mean seating. They mean seating and cargo space. So, along with 7 seats, how much cargo space can be found in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas? 

2018 Volkswagen Atlas Storage Capacity 

SUVs have 2 types of cargo capacities. This is because they have the ability to remove or fold down seats. Therefore, we’ll be listing 2 storage measurements for each SUV model. The ‘initial cargo capacity’ is when all seats are in place. The ‘maximum cargo capacity’ is when the max number of seats are removed.

For comparison, let’s see how the 2018 Atlas stacks up against the rest of Volkswagen’s catalog. The 2018 VW Tiguan has an initial capacity of 12 ft³ and a max storage capacity of 56.1 ft³. However, the Tiguan is still a compact SUV compared to the larger size of the Atlas. How about the Touareg, which the Atlas replaced as a model? The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg has an initial capacity of 32.1 ft³ and a max capacity of 64 ft³. 

So, how does the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas stack up? The 2018 VW Atlas has an initial storage space of 20.6 ft³, which is less than the 2017 Touareg. However, it’s maximum cargo capacity reaches an immense measurement of 96.8 ft³!
