Safety Prowess on Display in 2018 Volkswagen Atlas with IIHS 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK Award

Aug 4, 2017 was a memorable day for the all-new, seven-passenger 2018 Volkswagen Atlas The full-size, family-friendly SUV from the People's Car moniker earned a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for its equipment with available Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) features.

But it wasn't just that 2018 Atlas proudly put under its belt a highest rating of "Good" in frontal impact moderate overlap, frontal impact small overlap, side impact, roof strength, and head restraints categories. To get the IIHS's 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK, a vehicle must employ autonomous emergency braking with at least an "Advanced" front crash prevention rating. 2018 Atlas earned a step-up "Superior" rating.

What's more, Volkswagen's flagship is the only vehicle in its class with Automatic Post-Collision Braking not only on offer but standard on all its S, SE, and SEL trims. The tech applies brakes when airbag sensors detect a primary collision, resulting in energy reduction and, thus, collision mitigation.
