2013 Acura TSX Safety

8.0
Safety

Even though the 2013 Acura TSX is a step smaller than the TL sedan, we see it as being just as strong of a pick for safety-minded shoppers. Although the TSX's feature list is missing some of the active-safety options that are becoming expected in a luxury-brand vehicle.

 

The 2013 Acura TSX has reassuring ratings, but its features and options lists lack active-safety extras.

While the TSX has earned top 'good' results in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests, as well as the IIHS Top Safety Pick designation in prior model years, the TSX hasn't been tested in recent years by the federal government.

 

The TSX is behind the ball in terms of safety technology. Blind-spot monitors, active cruise control--they're nowhere to be found. A rearview camera is offered, but the TSX already has pretty good outward vision.
