All the sources consulted by TheCarConnection.com’s editors raved about the 2008 Acura MDX’s remarkable safety levels.

Car and Driver's comment about few equaling the safety of the 2008 Acura MDX is an understatement. They report the MDX Acura includes all of the standard "active features" that are usually found on today's vehicles, which include ABS brakes with electronic brake force distribution, stability control, and traction control. In addition, standard (not optional) safety equipment reported on this site includes two-stage front airbags, front side-impact airbags, height-adjustable front seatbelts with pretensioners, and three-row curtain airbags with integrated rollover sensing.

The Auto Channel reports that the 2008 Acura employs the company's patented Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) in the vehicle's structure and design. In case of a head-on impact, ACE construction distributes the force in such a way as to keep the MDX's passenger cabin from collapsing. What is marvelous here, however, is that the designers were not thinking only of the vehicle's occupants, but others as well. The hood design is specially designed to minimize injuries to any pedestrians that may be hit, and the bumpers are at a level that will do the least damage to other vehicles. In addition, one will find suspension stability and traction control devices that greatly improve driver control.


Conclusion

If safety while driving is your primary concern, the 2008 Acura MDX is absolutely a top choice.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
