2012 Acura TSX Safety

8.0
Safety

The 2012 Acura TSX is an IIHS Top Safety Pick--reassuring if you're choosing it as a family vehicle--although we've found outboard visibility to be a little tough.

Its features set is impressive, with all the expected items, plus active headrests, but it's missing some of the leading safety-tech options like blind-spot warning or active cruise control; a rearview camera system is optional, though. 

The 2012 Acura TSX doesn't boast any of the active-safety extras offered in some luxury-brand rivals, but its ratings are assuring.
The TSX keeps its "good" ratings from the IIHS in all categories, including the new-roof crush test; but it hasn't yet been rated in the revised federal NCAP tests.
