I'm wondering if anyone own a 2018 or 2019 Toyota Highlander and can compare it to the Atlas. I own a 2018 Highlander and I'm not loving it. I almost bought an Atlas but was worried about longevity and resale value as compared to the Highlander. I love to hear comparisons if anyone has some.

There were many comparisons out there by the car magazines and you tubers car enthusiasts. The majority chose the Atlas in their comparison. in 2020 a revised highlander is coming but that is still a bit way out. The new one has some improvements and some redesigne but still basically the same looks department. Before I vought the Atlas I looked at all but in the end the Atlas won me over. In the end it is a matter of preference. To me resale value takes a back seat as if the car gets hit once and the car history reports are there then the resale of any car takes a hit. The VW gets a 6 yr limited bumper to Bumper warrantee (toyota 3 years basic and a 5 year power train warrantee) so If one decides to keep the Atlas 4 to 5 years then a resale would actually benefit from this as the buyer still has some assurance on the cost repairs if needed. The Toyota ends after 4 years.

For me, the Atlas has so far been 7 months of trouble free ownership

Can’t speak on that year but I had a 2016 highlander and recently got a 2021 atlas and although worried about reliability I like the atlas more. It feels smaller, the highlander felt bigger and that I didn’t like as a small 5’2. I have 3 kids and although sometimes space them apart, they will all sit in the middle row and my oldest said the atlas has more space and it’s more comfortable for him being in the middle with his sisters car seat and brothers booster on end seats.
