Expert Quotes:

Good," frontal offset test; "good," side impact test

Five stars, frontal impact; five stars, side impact

Incorporates Acura's Advanced Compatibility Engineering body technology

The 2010 Acura TSX comes with all the safety equipment of its peers, including front side airbags, side curtain airbags, vehicle stability assist, active head restraints, and three-point seat belts for all five seating positions. The TSX earns a Top Safety Pick, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and five-star ratings in every category from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

For 2010, Acura earns NHTSA's highest rating of five stars for the TSX in front and side impact tests for both passengers and driver. IIHS results also give the 2009 Acura TSX top marks, scoring "good" for both frontal offset and side impact tests. In fact, the IIHS finds the Acura TSX's survivability good enough to award the 2009 model a Top Safety Pick; the 2010 model is not yet rated by the IIHS, but it's essentially identical to the 2009 model. The high crash ratings are in part due to Acura's "Advanced Compatibility Engineering body technology," which Cars.com says ensures the "car's crumple zones are fully utilized."

Beyond top-notch crash-test scores, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the 2010 Acura TSX also comes with a strong array of standard safety gear. Standard gear includes anti-lock brakes with brake assist, stability control, and traction control, as well as front, side, and full-length side-curtain airbags. Cars.com points out the TSX's "active head restraints for the front seats" and "backup camera" that comes with the "optional navigation system." Upgrading to the optional navigation system gets you a backup camera, helping to compensate for outside mirrors that are "on the small side," according to ConsumerGuide.


Five-star and Top Safety Pick crash ratings mean you can drive with confidence in your family's safety, but a standard backup camera would be a nice addition.

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.
