2022 Acura MDX Safety Rating & Features Post


The all-new 2022 Acura MDX features the AcuraWatch™ suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment. Showcasing Acura's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, the MDX is designed to increase occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions.

Top-Rated Safety

The 2022 Acura MDX has earned the highest possible safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The MDX qualified as a TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) by earning a top rating of “Good” in all crashworthiness tests, a “Superior” rating for the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), and standard “Good” rated headlights. To earn the 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must receive good crashworthiness ratings in all test modes, including the challenging passenger-side small overlap test. It also needs available front crash prevention that earns an advanced or superior rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing and standard good- or acceptable-rated headlights.

Next-Level Safety Technology

AcuraWatch™ helps enhance driver awareness, avoid collisions, and mitigate the severity of an impact. Standard on all packages, AcuraWatch™ includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Pedestrian Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition, and Traffic Jam Assist. Alongside AcuraWatch, additional available driver-assistive technologies include a surround-view camera, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), rear cross traffic monitor, and low speed braking control.

Additional Safety Features

The 2022 MDX’s anti-lock brakes automatically sense when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and will modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. Stability control automatically senses when the vehicle’s handling limits have been exceeded and reduces engine power and/or applies select brakes to help prevent the driver from losing control of the vehicle. The premium performance SUV has front-impact, side-impact, overhead, and knee airbags for optimal protection. Seatbelt pretensioners automatically tighten seatbelts to place the occupant in the optimal seating position during a collision, and anti-whiplash head restraints respond to rear collision forces, cradling the occupant’s head to reduce injury.
