Acura is the first car company ever to receive Top Safety Picks designations from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for every one of its vehicles. All five 2009 Acura models, both passenger cars and SUVs, earned "good"-the highest score possible-on frontal, side and rear crash tests.
Acura is the only luxury brand to receive five-star crash test safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)* for all of its models, as a result of the government's front and side impact tests.
*Government star ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) New Car Assessment program (www.safercar.gov). Model tested with standard side-impact airbags (SABs).
