2013 Acura TSX Road Test and Review: Safety and Ratings
- No changes for 2013
Acura has some work to do with regard to the TSX’s safety features. Aside from a standard package of equipment offered by just about every car regardless of price point, the only item of note here is a reversing camera. And it’s not even standard equipment.
2013 Acura TSX Crash-Test Ratings:
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2013 Acura TSX is a “Top Safety Pick,” the result of achieving the highest possible ratings in moderate overlap frontal-impact, side-impact, rear-impact injury prevention, and roof crush strength tests. This, however, is the last year the TSX will achieve the laurel. Starting next year, vehicles must also achieve a favorable rating in the Institute’s new small overlap frontal-impact test, for which the TSX rates “Marginal.” Without structural modifications, this car will not improve on that front.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not performed crash tests on the 2013 TSX.
