Bob Howard Acura knows that vehicle safety ratings are one of the most important factors to consider when shopping for a new car. That’s why we’re pleased to inform you that the 2017 Acura MDX has earned the TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from IIHS. In fact, it’s the fourth year in a row that the MDX has earned this recognition!

Additional eyes on the road

Helping the 2017 MDX to achieve its outstanding safety rating is the AcuraWatch™ suite of active safety and driver-assistive technologies. Two technologies that are integral to this package are the MDX’s Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system. They act as "additional eyes on the road" and work in concert to help alert, avoid, or reduce the severity of an unavoidable impact by supplying a sound alert to warn the driver of a potential hazard and then applying hard braking if no action is taken by the driver.

AcuraWatch™ also includes Road Departure Mitigation (RDW) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) that’s designed to warn you if your MDX strays from its lane or the road itself, as well as Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF).

AcuraWatch™ is standard equipment on the MDX and provides additional peace of mind that helps deliver an exceptional and safe driving experience each and every time you get behind the wheel.

In addition to AcuraWatch™, all new Acura models come with a multi-angle rearview camera as standard equipment. Additional standard safety equipment on all models include Advance Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), side curtain airbags (some vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor as well), advanced front airbags, and front side airbags.

Peace of mind that drives you

While it’s easy to associate Acura with outstanding luxury, quality, and performance, the 2017 MDX with standard AcuraWatch™ is a helpful reminder that Acura is also a top leader in safety ratings. After all, taking risks with safety and the safety of our loved ones is a luxury none of us can afford.
