Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport than in the Lexus UX 250h, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus UX 250h.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus UX 250h 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus UX 250h 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 Lexus UX 250h carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus UX 250h 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. If you go with the Lexus UX 250h, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Handling
The Lexus UX 250h has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus UX 250h and the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Warranty
The Lexus UX 250h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.
