The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has been named the Best Three-Row SUV by Edmunds and Parents magazine on their annual 10 Best Family Cars list. The 10 Best Family Cars list examines several key aspects of cars in each segment to determine which ones are the most functional for families.
Parents and Edmunds first narrow down the list by only including vehicles that have been chosen as TOP SAFETY PICKs by the IIHS and have received 5-star safety ratings from the NHTSA. Of all the vehicles released for the 2018 model year, 109 met these standards.
From there, Edmunds and Parents both examined the cars using their own areas of expertise. Edmunds looked at the specs and mechanics of all 109 vehicles and narrowed it down to 20 finalists, while Parents installed car seats in each model to determine how easy and time-consuming it was, as well as finding the most family-friendly features.
The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas was the three-row SUV with the best safety technology, specs, and family-oriented features, and it earned bonus points for its People First Warranty, a bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty that lasts 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. Pair all that with five versatile trim levels, and the Volkswagen Atlas truly has something for every family.
