Safety

Acura keeps a focus on safety by designing the TLX with the next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering. The ACE™ design enhances occupant protection by distributing frontal crash energy so less force is transferred inside. The TLX received a 5-star overall vehicle score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).** The suite of advanced safety and driver-assist technologies, AcuraWatch™, comes standard on all TLX vehicles. This suite includes blind spot and rear cross traffic monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, and vehicle stability assist.
