We take great responsibility to ensure our driver assistance technologies get smarter,” said Volkswagen of America’s Senior Vice-President, Product Marketing and Strategy, Hendrik Muth. “The Atlas is an example of our ongoing commitment to offering these features and we are proud to have received this recognition.”
