    2020 Acura TLX Safety Features and Rating

The 2020 Acura TLX is a performance luxury sedan with plenty of thrills behind the wheel and amenities in the cabin. Car and Driver says the TLX “boasts equal amounts of comfort and capability.” The TLX is made for the adventurous and the refined, but it also comes with a number of safety features and gets high safety ratings from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). Let’s take a closer look at why the 2020 Acura TLX is one of the safest sedans on the road.

Safety Rating

The Acura TLX has earned high safety ratings from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. The ratings reflect extensive testing on crashworthiness, headlight quality, and crash avoidance and mitigation, along with other criteria. The Acura TLX scores high thanks in part to its design and to its driver-assistive technology features.

Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

The Acura TLX scores high in crashworthiness because of the Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structures. The innovative design utilizes a network of frame structures to absorb impacts and distribute crash energy away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin. Because the body structure absorbs the impact, it transfers less force back to the other vehicle involved, minimizing the damage done to both sides of a crash.

Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines

Every model of the Acura TLX comes with a multi-view rear camera with dynamic guidelines. The camera allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up, and the guidelines can help steer you out of a tight space. There is also a convenient top-down view that is perfect for parallel parking.
