Although Atmel's PICs are much more popular for simple automated devices, I can't imagine them being good for car use.
Should be Microchip PICs. Microchip acquired Atmel back in 2016. And the PIC product line is pretty broad with embedded controllers ranging from 8 bit to 32 bit data bus widths. The controllers have all kinds of built in peripherals and can run at a wide range of frequencies, allowing a designer to trade off power consumption vs. performance.

I'm working on a project with a PIC right now with a controller that dates backs to around 2004. Kind of blew my mind when I was given the hardware.
