Three Acura Models Win IIHS Top Safety Ratings
Three Acura models have earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) pinnacle Top Safety Pick+ rating.
Top Safety Pick+
Each model achieved the highest possible rating of “GOOD” in all six IIHS crashworthiness tests. In addition, all feature AcuraWatch™ driver-assistive and safety technology as standard equipment, earning “SUPERIOR” ratings for vehicle-to-vehicle frontal crash prevention.
All Acura vehicles benefit from Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, designed to protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems, such as pretensioning front seatbelts, and front, side, knee and side-curtain airbags.
To earn the 2022 TSP award, a vehicle must earn “GOOD” crashworthiness ratings in all test modes, including in the challenging passenger-side small overlap test. A top-rated vehicle must also offer front crash prevention that earns an “ADVANCED” or “SUPERIOR” rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing, as well as “GOOD” or “ACCEPTABLE” ratings for available headlights though TSP+ rated vehicles must achieve the same “GOOD” or “ACCEPTABLE” rating for their standard headlights.
Separately, every Acura model that has been fully evaluated in the NHTSA’s 2022 model year NCAP testing has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score.
