2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: 2012 Model Is An IIHS Top Safety Pick
December 15, 2011
Turns out the Acura TSX Sport Wagon doesn't just look great; it's also one of the safest vehicles in its category. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) just gave the 2012 TSX wagon its Top Safety Pick award; this award recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting occupants in front, side, rollover, and rear crashes. The TSX wagon earned the highest-possible score of "Good" in frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength crash tests conducted by the IIHS.
The 2012 model is a carryover from the 2011 model, but gets additional cargo-area storage space thanks to a compact tire repair kit. The 2012 wagon also gets a new Special Edition package that offers some sporty styling upgrades.
Acura's 2012 TL sedan (only TL models built after September 2011 qualify), TSX sedan and MDX crossover were also recognized as being Top Safety Picks in their respective categories.
