Acura Models Named Top Safety Pick

While all Acura vehicles include a suite of the latest in passive and active safety features to protect you and your passengers, certain models have achieved special recognition as an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick. To earn this distinction, vehicles must undergo a series of tests and receive good ratings in terms of crashworthiness and crash avoidance/mitigation systems.

Here, drivers in the Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, and Aliso Viejo can learn more about the Acura models that have obtained this accolade. At Norm Reeves Acura of Mission Viejo, we're proud to say that the entire Acura lineup has received the highest rating.

About the IIHS Top Safety Picks

The IIHS has two awards: Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+. To be named a Top Safety Pick, the vehicle must achieve high scores in multiple tests: moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, head restraint, and small overlap front tests. To obtain the title of Top Safety Pick+, the vehicle must meet all of the above requirements as well as earn a high rating for crash prevention.

Below is a list of the Acura models and their distinction from the IIHS along with a few of the innovative safety features that helped get them there. This isn't a complete review of every vehicle's safety technology. However, you can find more information by visiting our Acura Safety Features page or click on the model name below.
