The Rigorous Standards

To secure the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, these SUVs had to excel in various IIHS tests. From the updated side test to driver-side and passenger-side small overlap front tests, they had to demonstrate exceptional performance. Additionally, acceptable or good headlights must be standard across all trims, and a front crash prevention system must earn advanced or superior ratings. 

Volkswagen’s Safety Arsenal: IQ.DRIVE® 

Equipped with Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE® advanced driver assistance technology, the 2024 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport take safety to a new level. IQ.DRIVE® features hands-on semi-automated capability, offering lane centering and a capacitive steering wheel for effortless highway driving. In urban environments, it keeps a vigilant eye on unexpected obstacles, enhancing safety. 

Front Assist: A Guardian on the Road 

Front Assist, part of IQ.DRIVE®, warns drivers of potential frontal collisions and provides automatic braking assistance. It detects vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians, even those traveling parallel to the vehicle. The system issues warnings and, if necessary, automatically applies brakes to prevent or mitigate a collision.
