Honda Pilot vs Volkswagen Atlas: Which Is Safer?

By  | 

The Volkswagen Atlas is the newest vehicle to hit the midsized SUV market and it has got the figures to challenge the current segment-leader, Honda Pilot. But unfortunately for the Atlas, it has failed in one particular field and that is safety.

The Atlas had just completed a safety test at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and it achieved Top Safety Pick. This is a great accomplishment if you are consider that there aren’t many German cars that are able to pass the safety test with flying colors.

But then again, the Atlas is still behind the competition on the safety score. The Honda Pilot, Mazda CX-9 and Toyota Highlander are all awarded with Top Safety Pick Plus, which means that they are safer than the Atlas.

However, it is not too bad for the Atlas as the only thing that prevented them from getting Top Safety Pick Plus is their headlights. You can check out the test video below.
