Acura Leads Luxury Market with Safest Cars of 2015
Acura vehicles have been one of the most popular options for luxurious, affordable, and safe cars and crossovers among Wisconsin drivers, and we are proud to say that the Acura lineup has reached a new level of safety, featuring some of the safest cars 2015 has yet seen.
Now that the 2016 Acura RDX has earned a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), we can say that the whole Acura lineup has earned top marks in government safety tests. In addition to the RDX, the 2015 TLX, 2016 MDX, 2016 ILX, and 2016 RLX have all earned Five-Start Overall Vehicle Safety Ratings.
Acura’s Current and Past Safety Records
Having a vehicle lineup that has earned Five-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Ratings from the NHTSA across the board is something to be proud of, but this isn’t the first or even the second time Acura has earned such an honor. It’s the sixth, more than any other auto manufacturer.
In response to the news, the Vice President and General Manager of the Acura Division, Jon Ikeda, said, “Customers expect luxury vehicles to have top safety performance and Acura is leading the way with advanced safety and driver assistive technologies that helped us earn the top safety rating across the entire Acura model line. Providing leading safety performance and technology has always been a core characteristic of the Acura brand and our commitment to Acura customers.”
In addition to earning such high marks from the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program, three Acura vehicles earned recognition from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as well:
- 2016 Acura RLX models have been bestowed the IIHS’s highest award: Top Safety Pick+.
- 2016 Acura MDX models with available frontal crash prevention through AcuraWatch have also earned Top Safety Pick+ (standard models earned Top Safety Pick).
- The newest addition to the Acura lineup, the 2015 TLX, also earned Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with frontal crash prevention technologies (and Top Safety Pick on standard models).
