If you’re in the process of shopping for your next vehicle, you can’t go wrong with a safe Acura in Houston. Acura makes the safety of its drivers and passengers a top priority, which is evidenced by the many awards that the Acura brand has acquired over the years. Take a closer look at the impressive awards that Acura has earned with John Eagle Acura.

Safety has been at the forefront of the Acura design since 1987 when vehicles began offering a front driver’s airbag in the Legend Coupe, 11 years before it was required by law. Then in 1989, airbags became standard on all Legend models. Acura also led the way with the anti-lock braking system (ABS) that appeared in the 1988 Legend, and was then integrated into other models.

The most recent Acura awards were given to the 2017 ILX, TLX and RDX, and the 2016 MDX and RLX. Each of these vehicles earned a five star rating from the NCAP front crash and side impact tests as well as five star overall vehicle scores. The 2017 MDX and RLX have not been tested yet but we can expect great performances from those vehicles in the future.

In 2009 Acura was the first luxury brand to receive a five star rating from the NHTSA for front crash and side impact tests for every model in its lineup, which is quite the accomplishment. The same year, Acura was the first car company to receive a Top Safety Pick title from the IIHS for every model in its vehicle lineup. The tradition of excellence continues with the 2016 ILX, RLX, MDX and RDX, that all received the Top Safety Pick+ rating, which is the highest rating given by the IIHS.

With great safety features like these, it’s easy to see why drivers choose Acura to transport friends and family around town.
