IIHS Headlight rating

So looks like the Atlas SEL Premium got some marginal ratings regarding headlights on the IIHS review.


I'm wondering what some actual owners on here think about the visibility with their headlights? We're choosing between an Atlas and an Ascent and this is one of the "differences" between the two.

I own the new VW Atlas only for 3 days, but I've already drove in the dark and the headlights does not seem bad at all. Anyways it's seems much brighter than headlights of my previous SUV 2015 Chevrolet Traverse.

I agree. I've had mine since Monday night and lights are fine with me. But look at the bright side. Jeep Cherokees have 6 "lights" and they still suck. Don't own one, but drove one. I have a 09 Liberty but it's lifted and I put some Phillips bulbs that are rated the brightest you can install w/o going to high def lights. Added a few LED offroad lights that will light up your world. One thing I thought was odd though. VW used LED's everywhere except the driving lights. They are still "yellowish" halogen. I'm going to look for replacements that are either brighter or LED style.
