The 2015 Acura MDX has One of the Highest Safety Ratings

September 1st, 2014 by

If you’re looking for a stylish, practical family vehicle in the Chicagoland area, you want it to be safe, right? And that’s why we’re proud to offer the 2015 Acura MDX. It’s one of the safest vehicles on the road today, equipped with some of the best safety features on the road. Let’s take a look.

Earning a Five-Star NHTSA Rating

The highest rating that a vehicle can earn on the NHTSA safety scale is five stars, and we are proud to say that the 2015 MDX earned Five-Star ratings on every New Car Assessment Program front and side crash safety test performed by the NHTSA, including:

  • Frontal Barrier Crash (both front passenger and driver)
  • Side Barrier Crash (with both front and rear seating positions)
  • Side Pole Test (with front seating rating)

If that’s not enough, the MDX also earned the coveted Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score, based on the results of the above crash tests as well as an NHTSA rollover resistance test.

How Does Acura Build a Safe Crossover?

Building a safe crossover or SUV is no easy task, but Acura has done their research. The core of the MDX spreads from the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, built to do more than just crumple in the right places: it redistributes crash energy away from occupants.

To help enhance child safety, the MDX features LATCH-compliant seating in the second row, allowing you to safely and securely hook up LATCH-compatible child safety seats. And all of the windows and the moonroof of the MDX feature auto-reverse to prevent them from pinching any fingers. It’s the broad strokes and the details.
