The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas Earns a Top Safety Rating

Recently, it was reported that the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV had been awarded a 5-Star Overall crash safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is the agency's top possible rating and shows how committed Volkswagen is to your safety, as well as that of your passengers. Thanks to a wealth of advanced safety and driver-assistance features, the Atlas is well-equipped to keep you and yours safe on the Grand Rapids roads.

The Atlas features front and rear crumple zones to absorb crash energy, while the rigid safety cage redirects that energy away from cabin occupants. An Intelligent Crash Response System unlocks the doors, turns off the fuel pump, and activates the hazards when a collision causes the airbags to deploy, while Automatic Post-Collision Braking helps slow the Atlas down after a collision -- cutting down on the odds of additional impacts occurring.

The tire pressure monitoring system helps you make sure that your tires are inflated properly, which improves both efficiency and safety, while seven stability-enhancing systems make it easier to keep your Atlas on the road whether you're swerving to avoid debris or braking hard to prevent a collision.

Then there's the rear view camera system, which provides a clear view of any objects -- or small people -- that may have slipped behind your SUV. The wide lens offers a more encompassing view, adding to your sense of assurance when backing up.

The advanced safety features and high safety ratings are just two of the many ways that the Atlas outperforms class competitors.
