Comparing the base model 2019 Honda Pilot LX with the Volkswagen Atlas S, it's easy to see that right out of the gates, the new Pilot offers better value thanks to a more powerful engine, more interior seating and more advanced safety technology included as standard equipment. 

One of the highlights of the 2019 Honda Pilot is the is the inclusion of the Honda Sensing® suite of safety equipment on all trim levels. While the VW Atlas does offer a number of similar high-tech and innovative safety features, you won't be able to find them included as standard equipment - especially on the base model!

The Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety technology includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Road Departure Mitigation System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control and the new Traffic Sign Recognition System.

The 2019 Honda Pilot also offers an available Rear Electronic Parking Aid (with camera) that you won't find on any 2018 VW Atlas models.
