July 27th, 2021 by

Red 2022 Acura MDX A-Spec Luxury SUV

Acura has a long-standing history of producing well-designed luxury cars and SUVs that are packed with technologies. Through their exceptional engineering and Acura’s focus on innovation, the 2021 Acura RDX and the 2021 Acura TLX were recognized by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety by being named 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ vehicles. The next-generation 2022 Acura MDX has also been named a 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ vehicle.

The 2022 Acura MDX’s Safety Features

While last year’s MDX was well-appointed, the fourth-generation MDX steps things up a notch with exciting improvements from end to end. As a result of some of these improvements, the IIHS has given the crossover a rating of “Good” for crashworthiness and “Superior” for the other categories. The AcuraWatch™ safety technologies may be one of the attributing factors to the safety recognition that the MDX has received. The AcuraWatch™ technologies are assistive features that combine to reduce the chance of a collision, and that could reduce the severity of a collision in some cases. These features include smart cruise control, collision mitigation braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic detection, and more.
