Acura TLX Sweeps Top Safety Ratings from Leading National Safety Tests
Acura earns top marks from three individual safety performance rating programs for the 2015 Acura TLX.
The Acura TLX has set itself apart from the competition by achieving the highest safety ratings from multiple safety administrations. The TLX has earned the highest Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and has received the highest safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Acura TLX is one of only three vehicles in the midsize luxury class to earn top NHTSA and IIHS safety ratings.
Acura’s Vehicle Safety Commitment
The remarkable safety performance of the Acura TLX is a result of Acura’s continued focus on passenger safety. The brand is committed to leading the automotive safety industry with innovative safety designs. In addition to top ratings from the NHTSA and the IIHS, the Acura TLX also received a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the U.S. government’s New Car Assessment Program.
“The Acura TLX truly embodies the dedication Acura has to safety innovation. The well-being of the driver and passengers is paramount, and we are so proud to have achieved such remarkable ratings from three of the top safety rating programs,” shares Acura Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Scott Westbrook.
