NHTSA Gives 2014 Acura MDX, RDX 5-Star Ratings

Brands SUVs Aimed at Safety

Acura's two SUV models, the 2014 MDX and smaller RDX have just been awarded the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's 5-star overall vehicle safety score, meaning both vehicles got a 5-star rating in frontal and side impacts, and a 4-star rating in the rollover test. Although the vehicles have not yet been tested for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's tough small overlap test, Acura is anticipating a Top Safety Pick+ in the category for the new MDX.
The only other large or midsize SUVs that have been earned the TSP+ designation are the 2014 Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Volvo XC60. Other midsize or large premium SUVs that have earned a 5-star overall NHTSA rating are General Motors' Lambda-platform triplets, the Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse, the Cadillac SRX, and the Ford Explorer. To earn a 5-star overall ratings, vehicles need to get five stars in frontal and rear crash testing and at least four stars in the rollover test.
We reported yesterday on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee earning a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS. The agency said the vehicle will be tested later in 2014 for the small overlap test, which could make it eligible to get the coveted TSP+ designation.
