The tight grip of Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) on the automotive industry is good news for the safety-conscious car customers. Last week, the press release described 2015 Acura TLX getting top safety picks from IIHS. The model has been listed as one of the high safety rated car in the mid-size luxury segment. The top reasons are its advanced safety assists, forward collision avoidance, active accident preventive technology, and radar in the model. Other models in the top safety picks are from Audi, BMW, Volvo and others.
The minute autonomous driving characteristics of 2015 Acura TLX model has made it possible for drivers to drive safely on the highway and city roads. The advanced system of model takes charges of steering to for protection while decelerating car for preventing collision. The application of the brake is also supported by inbuilt system in the emergency cases and collision scenario.
Recent development in the field of safety assists is expected to improve the performance. The major hits by IIHS are Honda’s new technology for bicycle recognition, pedestrian recognition, standard collision avoidance and much more. The new testing codes of IIHS are released for manufacturers. The companies including Audi and BMW are already in the race to develop advanced safety assists.
The 2015 Acura TLX has got many other appreciable points of attraction for safety conscious consumers, including lane-departure warning; airbag surrounded cabin with side support of curtain for protection against sudden hits. The newer trims of TLX might not have all such features as optional packages will be given based on the choices of buyers. The Honda’s new Accord and CAR-V might stand against 2015 Acura safety ratings as they are as impressive as TLX due to their early lane departure warning and forward collision detection technology, combination of which make it a perfect safety hit.
