Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Transit Connect will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Transit Connect as you will with the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford Transit Connect is a better financial choice over the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Ford Transit Connect is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Transit Connect has a lot less horsepower than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Powertrain
The Ford Transit Connect has much lower torque than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Transit Connect seats a lot fewer people than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Ford Transit Connect than that of the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.
