2014 Acura MDX and RDX Are Certified 5-Star Vehicles on NHTSA Safety Test

2014 Acura MDX and RDX Are Certified 5-Star Vehicles on NHTSA Safety TestBoth the 2014 Acura MDX and 2014 Acura RDX have received five-star safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, designations that should help both crossovers remain popular as two of Acura’s most popular vehicles.

The 2014 MDX and RDX got five-star scores on the NHTSA’s frontal and side impact tests, and both got four stars in the rollover resistance test.  Aside from the two new models, the 2013 Acura RDX has also done very well in safety tests, receiving a Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.  The new 2014 Acura MDX is also expected to be a Top Safety Pick+ vehicle on the IIHS’ next tests.

All things considered, though, the 2014 Acura MDX and Acura RDX are in a class of vehicles that includes a lot of NHTSA or IIHS-certified safe vehicles.  The Audi Q5, BMW X3, Buick Enclave, Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Volvo XC60, for instance, have all gotten Top Safety Pick certification from the IIHS, while the M-Class and XC60 have gotten Top Safety Pick+ honors as well.  Comparing both Acura crossovers, the MDX comes with more notable safety features, such as collision mitigation braking and an innovative lane keeping assist onboard.
