Hey Everyone! In today's versus film I'll be reviewing the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas against the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL. Both are amazing MidSize SUV's, but one is the winner! From the Exterior to the Interior I'll be checking it all out! Also I'll spend a few minutes hopping into the 3rd row seats of both cars and lets see if my 6.1FT and 230Pounds fits with some comfort.

If you'd like to purchase either vehicle in the video feel free to contact the dealerships.

Vehicles filmed at Dealerships are For Sale. Make sure to visit the dealerships website for detail info about each vehicle. If your watching a video thats older than 90 days you can expect that vehicle to most likely already being sold, unless its a new car.

FYI - Charleston Car Videos on YouTube Started in 2011. Back in 2008 is when I started filming cars as a car salesman to give people a better way to see a new or used vehicle. Over the years I ended up selling over 450 vehicles from doing videos. Today 1000's of vehicles have sold from people using my car videos to sell cars at dealerships all over the South East Region.

I'm Chad Dolbier the creator of CCV. After High School I was unsure of what to do for a career as many young adults are. Instead of going to college I decided to start working in the car business in 2000. My first car job was at Acura of Charleston being a car detailer/washer. In 2003 our Acura store started to clear land next door and built Audi of Charleston. After a few years passing and still detailing Acura's & Audi's in 2005 I was asked to be a car salesman. In 2006 I started the Internet Department for Acura & Audi. Then in 2008 is when the car videos all started up! 2010 is when I left Acura & Audi and started my own car dealership video business. So far today I've built YouTube channel for over 18 car brands & dealerships. So enjoy my channel and hopefully you can learn something new! As always I enjoy learning from you as well so make sure to send me your feedback!

      I had a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder and I just recently got a 2019 VW Atlas (yesterday πŸ˜‚). I will say though that the Pathfinder has 3rd row speakers and the VW did not. Moreover I prefer Nissans way of getting into the 3rd row, how the seats collapse easily.

      +CharlestonCarVideos I purchased the SE R Line. I think that's the trim level i have. Also it does have a sunroof package and towing capabilities. I dont know if those come with the SE trim level or those are extra. This Vehicle is a huge upgrade over the Nissan Pathfinder (SV 4wd) even with it's small drawbacks.

      Well congrats on your new purchase of the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. If you don't mind me asking which trim level did you end up picking out? I really enjoyed all the time I spent in the Atlas back in 2018, but VW did seem to cut corner to make the car affordable to attract more new customers from other brands. I believe they achieved what they were trying to do, but those hard core VW Touareg drivers surly do seem to tell everyone how much they hate the Atlas. Which I can understand when you Google 2019 VW Touareg and see just how beautiful it is and being only sold outside the USA.

      Good video, in Canada the hitch and wire harness come standard in the SL package and up, towing capacity changed to 6,000lbs in the later years which may not seem like a lot but the extra 1,000 pounds towing compared to most of the competition can account for the passengers and the gear your hauling which its quite a lot. I used to have a Pathfinder SL and loved the 360 around view monitor with moving object detection and rear cross traffic alert, not to mention having kids, those extra cup holders high up on the door in the back are awesome!!!!

      Being a former VW owner and a current Nissan owner I would go 100% for the Pathfinder. It may not look as modern as the Atlas but I feel they are more reliable, with a better value for the money and cheaper maintenance.

      If you upgrade the SL with the Tech Package you get the Towing Hookup/Bose/Navigation. Without the Tech package upgrade, there is no towing hookup.

      I think that VW Atlas is the best SUV in this Segment. And of course German engineering the best in the World πŸŒŽπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ Very good review πŸ‘πŸ˜€

      VW: unreliable as hell, no resale value proposition, i can go on...and i had german cars in the past (BMW)..so talking from experience....german engineering is not a thing of pride IN MY OPINION, i am not sure why everyone brags 'German engineering'.

      Also in my SUVs I like the tow and the Pathfinder can tow up to 6,000 lbs and the nissan doesnt look anything like a 2007-2018 sequoia

      Toureg would be a nice option if your looking to tow at a towing capacity of 7,716 "8 speed auto 4 motion 3.6l" as you probably figured out I have a huge Volkswagen bias. I just feel they deserve a chance. Maybe not enough people take the time to check them out for the Volkswagen name associated with the cars. It makes since. However I do love Nissan Sentra. I think that car is very sharp and above many in its class.

      I would prefer the Nissan Pathfinder because it has more combined legroom in all rows and passenger volume and I like Nissan not Volkswagen

      I prefer the Atlas probably because it's newer and cleaner inside. However the smooth curves of the Pathfinder do look quite good for many angles. The Pathfinder though has certainly become much more of a soccer mom car compared to the off-road machine it was in the early 2000s. None the less both great options just comes down to personal preference. That's why people have to get out on the road and drive each option for themselves before purchase.
