As you prepare for your next crossover SUV purchase, you are understandably focused on finding a spacious, capable model with the style and features you expect. With this in mind, you have narrowed down the options to the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas and the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Atlas has a slightly lower starting price, and many other differences will be identified when you take a closer look.


The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas has a road-conquering façade defined by long, elegant lines and modern angles. On the front of the Atlas, the three horizontal bars flow into the LED headlights to create a seamless look. The linear design on the front end is enhanced by chrome bars that run through the lower fascia. These accent pieces are also found on the lower side panels and the lower rear fascia. The additional exterior features of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas include fog lamps, integrated cornering headlights, up to 20-inch wheels, a remote power liftgate, dual exhaust tips, and others. The exterior design and features of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee are also modern. However, the Grand Cherokee’s exterior shows signature Jeep elements, such as vertical bars throughout the grille and sharp character lines throughout. The fog lamps, grille, and headlights are all separated from each other. The Grand Cherokee also has metal accent pieces, heated side mirrors, and other equipment.


The Atlas offers a third-row functionality, and the second and third rows can fold down as needed. The contemporary feel inside the Atlas cabin is brought to life by modern features like a Fender audio system, remote start, a digital infotainment system screen, a digital instrumentation display, USB ports, a navigation system, a wireless charging pad, and others. The two-row Cherokee has a few of these features. For example, it has a digital display screen and a sound system.


The broad appeal of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas continues with its robust suite of protective gear. Advanced features in the Atlas include lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, an overhead monitor, road sign assist, and more.
