Good," frontal impact; "acceptable," side impact
The 2007 Acura TSX doesn’t have some of the bells and whistles that might come with a higher-end car, such as swiveling headlamps and laser cruise control, but it provides good active and passive safety.
Cars.com points out that "side curtain airbags and all-disc antilock brakes are standard. Side-impact airbags include a passenger-sensing system. An electronic stability system is also included." ForbesAutos has more or less the same information, choosing to call out that "antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control systems, and front side and side-curtain airbags are standard." ConsumerGuide also offers that the 2007 Acura has "good all-around visibility."
Edmunds focuses on the basic safety features offered in the 2007 Acura TSX. "The 2007 Acura TSX boasts a long list of standard safety equipment including four-wheel antilock brakes with brake assist, traction control, side airbags for front passengers, front and rear side-curtain airbags and a tire-pressure monitoring system."
Crash-test scores are mixed. The 2007 Acura TSX receives the top score from the IIHS in its frontal offset crash test, but the organization rates the TSX only "acceptable" in side impact. NHTSA testing tells a similar story, with the TSX earning a perfect five-star rating on all counts except for rear side impacts, where it receives four stars.
The 2007 Acura TSX doesn’t stand at the top of its class, yet it offers a lot of standard safety features.
