To qualify for the esteemed Top Safety Pick+ award in 2023, a vehicle must meet a rigorous set of criteria established by the IIHS. These requirements include a good rating in the Institute’s updated side test, as well as in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, and original moderate overlap front tests. Additionally, vehicles must feature acceptable or good headlights as standard across all trim levels and a front crash prevention system that garners advanced or superior ratings in both the daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

This feature underscores Volkswagen’s commitment to reducing accidents and protecting vulnerable road users. Furthermore, both the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport offer two available headlight systems, both of which earn good ratings, ensuring optimal visibility in varying driving conditions. Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE® advanced driver assistance technology is standard on all 2024 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport models, and features hands-on semi-automated capability. In addition to IQ.DRIVE, the 2024 Atlas family has standard Exit Warning, and available Park Distance Control, Park Assist (Parking Steering Assistant), Dynamic Road Sign Display, Head-up Display, Predictive ACC, Light Assist (High Beam Control for headlights) and Area View (Overhead View Camera).
