Comparison Review

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is clearly the choice over the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.
