  • Small overlap front: driver and passenger side
  • Moderate overlap front
  • Side

These ratings are partly due to the SUV's strong build and its advanced safety options that we'll cover more in-depth below.

Active Safety Features

The VW Atlas offers tons of active safety features to help prevent you from getting into an accident. This includes several stability-enhancing systems, one of them being the standard Electronic Stability Control that can adjust engine throttle and apply corrective forces to the wheels that need them most.

There are also loads of driver-assisting technologies available to warn you when anything may be amiss. They can even step in and take over if needed.

For example, Front Assist comes standard to help monitor traffic and send alerts when you're getting too close to a pedestrian or another vehicle. If you can't brake in time, the system can do it for you. Then there's the available Park Assist that can help steer your vehicle into a parking spot. You simply accelerate and brake when needed and this feature will do the rest.

Passive Safety Features

If you happen to get into an accident, you can rest assured the Volkswagen Atlas will help keep you protected. It starts with the six airbags that work to keep all occupants secure during a collision. Furthermore, not every collision brings a car to a stop. That's why it's important to have a feature such as the standard Automatic Post-Collison Braking System in place. It will help slow down your VW Atlas to help reduce the chance of any additional impacts.

This SUV also comes standard with the Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS). If you're in a collision that deployed the airbags, ICRS could:

  • Turn off the fuel pump
  • Unlock the doors
  • Activate the hazard lights

Overall, the vehicle can help react to emergency situations if you're not able to.
