Spitzer VW compares Atlas to Mazda competitor

New Volkswagen SUV doesn't shrug off challenge

AMHERST, Ohio., Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is a bona fide hit among the manufacturer's lineup of crossover SUVs available in the Spitzer VW showroom. In the few months that the all-new Atlas has been for sale in Amherst, it has been recognized across the industry for being among the best options available in a tightly packed segment of the automotive world. As a crossover SUV, the 2018 VW Atlas has had to work pretty hard to be noticed. In order to help raise its profile among potential, the sales staff from Spitzer Volkswagen has directly compared the 2018 Atlas against the 2018 Mazda CX-9, another well-respected member of the class. 

It's pretty easy to how the 2018 VW Atlas is able to outperform the 2018 Mazda CX-9. The 2018 Atlas uses a 3.6-liter, V-6 engine attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Drivers will have 276 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque to work with. By comparison, the 2018 Mazda CX-9 tops out a 250 horsepower.  

On a more practical level, this disparity in overall performance becomes clear when towing capacity is taken into consideration. When properly equipped, the 2018 VW Atlas can pull up to 5,000 pounds; easily dwarfing the 3,500-pound capacity found on the CX-9. 

Technology is another area where the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas outshines the new Mazda CX-9. The ability to integrate applications for today's most popular smartphones is a must-have feature. The all-new Atlas offers this capability on almost every available trim. Mazda has yet to adopt this technology for its customers.  

Anyone can view the entire Spitzer Volkswagen inventory by visiting the dealership's website, www.spitzervw.com. The showroom is located at 160 North Leavitt Road, Amherst, OH 44001. Customers can schedule a test drive with the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas today by calling 855-249-3849.
