The 2014 Acura MDX has already received its fair share of attention. Designers at the automaker decided to re-envision their popular SUV from the ground up, despite its past successes. And in doing so, they managed to develop a vehicle that is getting all of the attention, especially for its high safety.
The 2014 Acura RLX, on the other hand, is one of the most stunning sedans on the road today, the mixture of engineering and intuition into a streamlined, powerful middleweight car. That it tops the safety ratings of the IIHS is just icing on the cake.
Yet both of these vehicles, in addition to their incredible status as leaders in their class, are also some of the safest on the road. The Top Safety Pick+ award was just recently developed, and it only goes to vehicles that score the best possible rating of “good” in moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests.
Additionally, each vehicle has to earn a good or acceptable rating in the small overlap front test and include some level of high-tech features that can help prevent an accident. They don't hand these out to just anyone.
