Safety Offerings

When it comes to industry safety ratings, the Acura MDX wins the day by a clear margin.

For its exceptional performance in crash tests, the MDX has received a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which is the highest rating that entity grants. The QX60 was a rung lower on the IIHS ladder, being named only a Top Safety Pick (no “plus”).

In crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the MDX received 5 stars in frontal crash test performance and 5 stars in rollover performance, while the QX60 received only 4 stars in both of these categories.

In terms of safety features offered onboard these vehicles, the MDX offers various protective amenities as standard at the base model level that are not found in the base model MDX, including:

  • Active head restraints
  • Third-row head restraints
  • Daytime running lights
  • Remote-activated perimeter lighting
