Specifically, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named both popular models as 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ vehicles. This is the top safety award offered by the association, and the 2022 Acura MDX has also recently been named a 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ vehicle as well.

The 2022 Acura MDX’s Safety Features
