The 2010 Acura TL is firmly at the front of the class in crash testing, securing five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in frontal and side impact performance for both driver and passenger and earning the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick designation by virtue of its excellent performance in front, side, and rear crash tests, plus its standard electronic stability control. Acura equips all TLs with a full complement of six airbags.
Beyond industry-leading scores in the various crash tests, the 2010 Acura TL boasts an array of standard safety features that work together to provide a safe ride. Edmunds reviewers note that all "Acura TL models come with antilock brakes with brake assist, stability and traction control...and active front restraints," while Cars.com highlights "side curtain airbags [and] front-seat side-impact airbags" on the list of the TL's standard safety features.
Driver visibility from within the 2010 Acura TL is another strong point noted in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, rating it among the best of any sedan on the road. Edmunds points out that the "large flip-up headrests provide protection for occupants, while clearing rear vision when nobody's back there." ConsumerGuide reports that the "slim front roof pillars provide good forward visibility." When visibility is impaired by rear-seat occupants or cargo, Automobile Magazine highlights the available "rear-view camera, [a] part of the...technology package" on the 2010 Acura TL.
