2005 Acura MDX Earns 5-Star Ratings in NHTSA NCAP Frontal Crash Tests
 Date: April 04, 2005 16:52
 Submitted by:  Tuan
 Source: Honda Press Release
 Credibility Rating: N/A


The 2005 Acura MDX earned the highest possible ratings awarded during the most recent NCAP frontal crash tests conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The MDX scored the top rating of "five stars" for both driver and front passenger safety. Acura's hot-selling SUV had already achieved 5-star ratings during NHTSA's SINCAP (side impact) tests.

"We are extremely pleased that the MDX is being recognized for its outstanding safety structure," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. "When combined with the recent top scores for the new RL luxury performance sedan, this 5-star designation from NHTSA is an acknowledgement of our continuing commitment to safety through innovation in all Acura vehicles."

The 2005 MDX has demonstrated continued sales growth for Acura since its debut in 2000. Standard safety features include Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), side curtain airbags, dual-stage, dual-threshold front airbags, front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), and rollover sensors designed to trigger the side curtain airbags in the unlikely event of a rollover.
