Atlas Gets Top Score in Latest IIHS Crash Testing


By: Evan Williams
The Volkswagen Atlas has earned a top rating in the latest crash testing from the IIHS.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is the independent group responsible for most of the best crash test videos you see on YouTube. Their staple was the offset front impact, but the institute has expanded to more tests including testing collision avoidance and even headlights.
The latest test, which started last year, is a low overlap test of the passenger side. Low offset is a glancing blow. Like hitting a power pole or a tree with the headlight. When you almost missed, but not quite. The IIHS started testing the passenger side because they said automakers were leaving the right seat in the cold.

The Atlas scored good across the board. That’s the highest score the institute awards. It was one of just three to rate a good overall and just two to get good in every category. The score means that in the test there was little intrusion of the structure into the cabin, the passenger space stayed intact, and the airbags also did their job of keeping the test dummy’s head off the dash and in the vehicle. Not something every vehicle in the eight-crossover test could say.
“Volkswagen’s commitment to safety is unwavering,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and After Sales for Volkswagen of America, Inc. “There’s nothing more important than keeping your family safe.”
