Default 2005 Acura MDX Earns 5-Star Ratings in NHTSA NCAP Frontal Crash Tests

Torrance, Calif. - Apr 04 —

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.
