As one of the Toyota brand’s flagship models, the Toyota highlander is but one of many capable SUVs. With seating for up to eight passengers and a wide range of trim levels, there’s a model out there for anyone in the Enfield, CT area.
Even when compared to its competition, the 2021 Toyota Highlander stands out for its capabilities. One such model is the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas, which is known for its premium features. At Gale Toyota, we provide a comparison of the two midsize three-row SUVs below:

Between the 2021 Toyota Highlander and the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas, drivers receive a better overall experience with the Highlander when it comes to performance offerings. When comparing base engines, the model offers a standard 3.5-liter V-6 compared to the 2.0-liter Turbo in the VW Atlas. The added size offers up 295 horsepower and a more impressive estimated 29 Highway MPG. Meanwhile, the engine only needs regular unleaded fuel, saving you even more money at the pump. Although both models offer all-wheel drive capabilities, the 2021 Toyota Highlander also adds standard Adaptive Cruise Control inside its enhanced Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5+ system.
