Volkswagen of America is pleased to announce that the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas received a “Good” rating during the IIHS passenger side small overlap test. It’s one of only three midsize SUVs to earn that honor, making it one of the highest performing compact vehicles currently on the market.  One of the first things to look at when you search for a new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas in Bensenville, IL is if it has a high safety rating. The small overlap crash happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another object, such as a utility pole or tree. Volkswagen is committed to securing your family on the road. That’s why the Atlas was designed explicitly for American families in mind. Between the exceptional structural integrity and extensive driver assistance options, you’ll have peace of mind taking your family on the road. Let’s take a look and see what makes 2018 Volkswagen Atlas such a great choice for your family vehicle.

High Safety Ratings Protect You

Just like the entire Volkswagen lineup, the Atlas comes with many passive and active safety features. It has a total of six airbags: driver, passenger, full-length curtain plus drive and passenger side. These come standard with several electronic safety systems as well. The Atlas also comes standard with the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. This system brakes once the airbag detects a collision. With this action, residual kinetic energy and additional damage is reduced.

The Atlas also has Volkswagen’s 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system which optimizes stability and traction. Other driver assistance features include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring (Front Assist), Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, front and rear Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking (ParkPilot), Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist), Overhead View Camera (Area View) and High Beam Control (Light Assist).
