2023 Acura Safety Ratings

The three 2023 Acura IIHS awards were the Top Safety Pick+ choices from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). 

2023 Acura Safety Ratings: Integra Four-Door Sedans

The four-door Acura Integra offers speed, handling, and performance as well as a Top Safety Pick+ from IIHS. Almost every aspect of safety earned a Good or Superior rating, keeping you and your family safe. AcuraWatch™ driver-assist technology helped this sedan earn its rating, as well as every other suite of Acura’s safety tech.

2023 Acura Safety Ratings: MDX Midsize SUV

The midsize luxury Acura MDX SUV earned all Good or Superior ratings when earning its Top Safety Pick+ IIHS award for 2023 cars. This AWD SUV stays on the road even under challenging conditions. You’ll get Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with Advanced Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), much like you would in the Integra.

2023 Acura Safety Ratings: RDX Crossover

Want an SUV that feels like a car? The 2023 Acura IIHS awards include the RDX. This SUV has similar Good and Superior ratings with the IIHS ratings. You’ll get a great, family-friendly vehicle that handles well on the road and even in challenging conditions off the road near Cedar Rapids when you want to take a weekend wilderness adventure.
