Safety Features of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is a midsize crossover SUV that seats up to five passengers. It boasts ample interior space, a notable collection of comfort and technology features, remarkable performance features, and a bold design. At Team Gunther Volkswagen of Daphne, AL, we elaborate on the safety features of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Features Included with the IQ.DRIVE® Advanced Driver Assistance Technology

The IQ.DRIVE® Advanced Driver Assistance Technology system uses a front and rear radar, a front camera, and ultrasound sensors to keep an eye out for obstacles in your path and surrounding areas. This system ensures a safe driving experience. Some of the features included under this technology are listed below.

The Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring system warns you of an imminent frontal collision with vehicles or pedestrians. If you fail to heed the warnings, it also provides automatic braking assistance.  

The Blind Spot Monitor uses radar sensors placed at the rear of your 2021 Atlas Cross Sport to scan the oncoming traffic. It warns you of vehicles present in adjacent lanes.

The Rear Traffic Alert is of great help when you’re reversing. It offers a 180° view of the back of the car with an impressive range of 65 feet. If it anticipates a collision with a crossing vehicle, it alerts you with audio-visual warnings.

Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a predetermined speed and a set distance from the vehicle ahead of you. This feature is especially useful while driving on highways.

The Lane Keeping System identifies visible lane markings and checks if your 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is veering off its lane without giving a turn signal. It also countersteers the vehicle to center it in the lane.

Emergency Assist continually monitors your attentiveness by checking the input of your hands on the steering wheel. If it doesn’t detect any input, it first gives you audio-visual warnings or brake jolts to alert you. If you still fail to react, the system will reduce the speed of the vehicle bringing it to a gradual stop in its lane.

Passive Safety Features on the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport comes standard with the Automatic Post-Collision Braking system. This system applies the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors. Thus, it reduces the residual kinetic energy, which in turn, lessens the chance of any further damage. The Intelligent Crash Response System turns off the gas, unlocks the doors, and activates the hazard lights if a collision occurs.
