2017 Acura TLX blue exterior model

Holding turbocharged power as standard or an available V6 engine, the 2017 Acura TLX is renowned for its sporty performance, but that doesn’t come at the cost of safety. The Acura TLX is known as a luxury sedan able to fulfil your need for a thrilling ride without sacrificing the space and safety you’d demand from a family-focused model. It continues to walk that line with distinction for 2017, earning top crash-test scores in the process.

5-Star Overall Safety Rating* From the NHTSA

The NHTSA is tasked with putting new vehicles through an exhaustive set of crash-test simulations, with top scores awarded in Rollover, Front Crash, and Side Crash categories. Whether equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD) or front-wheel drive (FWD), the 2017 Acura TLX earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating* from the NHTSA. Opt for the TLX AWD Technology Package for added convenience while you enjoy your peace of mind!

There are full-sized SUVs that don’t supply such protectiveness, and that’s probably because they lack the Acura TLX’s pioneering ACE (Advanced Compatibility Engineering) body structure, which intuitively directs impact energy away from the passenger compartment in the event of a collision. Combined with a front seatbelt e-pretensioner system and an array of cutting-edge airbags, it provides truly exceptional protection.

  • 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
