2021 TLX A-Spec

The 2021 Acura RDX and 2021 Acura TLX have both earned the highest possible safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a Top Safety Pick+ Rating.

Both Acura models qualified for TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) by earning a top rating of “GOOD” in all crashworthiness tests, a “SUPERIOR” rating for the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), part of the standard AcuraWatch™ safety and driver-assistive technology and standard “GOOD” rated headlights.

All Acura Sedans and SUVs feature the AcuraWatch suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment, including Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and Road Departure Mitigation.

The 2021 Acura RDX and TLX feature Acura’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, designed to enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions with a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle and reducing the forces transferred to the passenger compartment. Acura JewelEye™ LED headlights help both models achieve its best-in-class ratings.

To earn the Top Safety Pick+ Award, a vehicle must earn GOOD crashworthiness ratings in all test models, including the child passenger-side small overlap test. It also needs available front crash prevention that earns an ADVANCED or SUPERIOR rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing and standard GOOD or ACCEPTABLE rated headlights.
