Top Safety Features on the VW Atlas

Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)

The Atlas is there for you in case of a collision thanks to ICRS, which is able to turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and turn on the hazard lights automatically when the airbags go off.

Stability Enhancing Systems

These seven systems include Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD), and many more.

Pedestrian Monitoring

This feature recognizes when there is a pedestrian moving into the pathway of the vehicle. It warns the driver and intervenes by automatically braking with full force when the driver fails to apply them in time.

Safety Ratings

The Atlas received an IIHS top safety pick, as well as a best overall five-star safety rating from the NHTSA.

Driver Assistance Atlas Safety Features
