TAMPA, FL, January 30, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The 2014 Acura MDX and RLX have earned top marks from several safety agencies, including Top Safety Pick+, which is the highest collision rating awarded by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).(1) The pair have also recently earned five-star front and side impact scores and four-star rollover resistance scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).(1) Both of these award-winning vehicles can be found at Ferman Acura of Tampa.
Acura didn't have to rely on sheer mass to achieve high levels of safety. Actually, the MDX and RLX use the manufacturer's Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) structure to lighten each vehicle by 275 pounds. In addition to helping these vehicles be as safe as possible, the lighter weight improved fuel economy.(1) The front-wheel drive MDX now gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway, and the RLX with a gasoline engine is rated at 31 mpg.(2)
The latest versions of the MDX and RDX include a long list of high-tech safety features. In particular, only vehicles that earn top scores in the IIHS crash tests along with having forward collision warning and/or braking systems can get the Top Safety Pick+ designation.(1)
The MDX and RDX have these systems to assist the driver in case of a potential accident, as well as available lane departure warning, blind spot information, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow and multi-view rear camera.(1) These vehicles can be outfitted with all these safety systems and more at Ferman Tampa dealerships.
