Each year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reviews every new model and rates them accordingly depending on its level of safety. There are six vehicles on the Acura lineup, and four of them can be found at the top IIHS-rated vehicles for the 2017 model year. The 2017 Acura MDX earned TOP SAFETY PICK+ for the fourth year in a row. The 2017 RDX also received the same rating when equipped with available AcuraWatch.
The 2017 Acura ILX received a TOP SAFETY PICK when it has AcuraWatch, and the 2017 Acura RLX also received the same rating for the base model. Acura is one of the leading brands when it comes to safety ratings for new 2017 vehicles, and AcuraWatch is definitely part of the success. This suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies includes the following features: Collision Mitigation Braking System with forwarding Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
