For the 2020 model year, the Volkswagen Atlas has earned a spot on Car Seat Check Honor Roll. This is the second year in a row that the family-friendly SUV has made the list.

“Volkswagen has grown our SUV family to fit the needs of America’s families,” says Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing and Strategy. “Being recognized for the family-friendly features of Atlas is a sign that we’re getting it right.”

So how does determine which vehicles are eligible for their honor roll system? Certified child passenger safety technicians evaluate vehicle LATCH systems by installing a rear-facing infant seat, rear- and forward-facing convertible, and a high-back booster seat into each car. To qualify for the 2020 Car Seat Check Honor Roll, vehicles must receive straight A’s across all categories. The 2020 Atlas scored straight A’s across the board for the seven-passenger model and six-passenger Atlas with second-row Captain’s Chairs.

“Families looking for a roomy SUV that easily handles car seats will find plenty to like with the Volkswagen Atlas,” says Jenni Newman, editor-in-chief and certified child passenger safety technician. “It’s loaded with family-friendly features, has a roomy third row and when equipped with the second-row bench seat, it easily fits three car seats.”

Earlier this year, named the Atlas the Family Car of the Year for its impressive driver-assistance features, spacious seating, and Volkswagen’s fun-to-drive character.
