Volkswagen Safety Ratings

2023 Volkswagen Atlas
 

As roads become more crowded, safety becomes increasingly important to car buyers. We all know Volkswagen makes cars that are fun to drive (and good-looking), but are Volkswagen vehicles safe? You bet! Volkswagen safety ratings are consistently excellent.

In what follows, we take a closer look at the safety ratings achieved by four models: the Tiguan, the ID.4, the Taos, and the Atlas. As you’ll see, there’s never been a better time to bring a Volkswagen SUV home to Franklin or Brookfield.

 

 

Volkswagen Safety Ratings: IIHS

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is one of the most trusted names in the automotive industry, and for good reason. Each year, they evaluate the performance of the most popular cars and SUVs and select the models that they believe are the safest on the road.

The 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 have both received the agency’s Top Safety Pick+ designation—the highest honor that they give out! Although the Taos and the Atlas were not given the same award, they both performed admirably during testing.
