Acura’s Commitment to Sound Safety in Each of Its Vehicles

Monday, June 13th, 2016


 Acura gives the highest priority to safety along with performance in all its cars. Even in pursuit of high performance and best passenger experience, Acura ensures that safety is never compromised.   Most of Acura’s cars have received the highest ratings of safety from rating institutions in America. Its commitment to safety is well known.

Acura has considered the safety and peace of mind of American drivers and their passengers from the time when it first debuted in the market. In 1987, less than a year after its appearance, Acura offered a front driver’s airbag in its “legendary” Legend coupe, almost 11 years before it became mandatory in the USA. From 1989 onwards, airbags were made standard on all Legend models and trims. Acura had developed an Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) system and trademarked it. It first appeared in the 1988 Legend but was soon used in other models of Acura’s lineup as well. Countless additions and alterations have been made to create the perfect safety net in all Acura cars.

The 2015 Acura RDX and MDX models had received 5 stars on all the NCAP side impact and front crash tests. They also received 5-star overall vehicle scores along with the ILX model for that year as well. 2009 was a very successful year for Acura. It received the NHTSA awarded 5-star crash safety ratings for all its models lined up, that year. The same year Acura became the first company to have all its models receive a ‘Top Safety Pick’ rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). After 2012, all its vehicles have received the highest possible rating of “good” in all the crash safety tests.
