The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, when equipped with forward collision warning and AEB (front assist), earned a 2017 Top Safety Pick (TSP) award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The car must also have earned at least an advanced rating for front crash prevention for its AEB. The 2018 Atlas received a ‘Superior’ rating on the AEB test.
