Smart Safety Features in the 2021 VW Atlas and Honda Pilot

Many local drivers ask our team about smart safety features when shopping for their next set of wheels. It’s an important consideration, for sure—you want to know that you and your family will get where you’re going as safely as possible.

That’s why we’re so excited that both the 2021 VW Atlas and Honda Pilot come equipped with several driver-assist features designed to improve driver awareness when out on the road. Standard and available systems you’ll find in both SUVs include:

  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Front collision warning systems
  • Lane centering and lane departure mitigation
  • Rear backup camera
Volkswagen Atlas Safety Features

The VW Atlas offers an additional feature that is especially useful when you reach your destination. This available system is called Park Assist and it helps you identify an available parking space that’s big enough for your VW Atlas. 

Then, it automatically steers the VW Atlas to park while prompting you to shift, accelerate, and brake.

Unfortunately, the Pilot doesn’t offer a similar feature. Thus, parking may be a bit more difficult than in the VW Atlas, especially when parallel parking on a busy city street.

VW Atlas vs Pilot: Interior Technology

Let’s move inside the cabin and have a look around at all the high-tech features available. In the cockpit of either the new Volkswagen Atlas or Honda Pilot, you’ll be treated to an infotainment system that can help you stay connected and entertained during work commutes or family getaways.

Both SUVs include available infotainment features, like:

  • A touchscreen display
  • Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility
  • Bluetooth® wireless device connectivity

The connectivity features integrate your smartphone with your car’s infotainment system. By doing so, you can stay connected to your favorite apps and respond to important phone calls on the go while keeping your phone safely out of your hands.

Volkswagen Atlas technology features

While these technologies are available to drivers of both the VW Atlas and Honda Pilot, there’s one feature that you’ll only find in the VW Atlas: Driver Personalization.

The advanced personalization settings let you create up to four unique profiles, so drivers can lock in their preferences for seating positions, radio stations, temperature settings, and more. It’s a handy tool if you regularly share the family car with your spouse or teens.

Without a similar feature, drivers in the Pilot may take a bit longer to get the perfect settings in place when switching drivers.
