Acura ZDX | 2011 | Pole Crash Test | NHTSA High Speed Camera | CrashNet1
A small-sized adult female crash test dummy is placed in the
driver's seat and is secured with a seat belt. The test vehicle,
angled at 75 degrees, is then pulled sideways at 20 mph (32km/h) into
a 25-cm diameter pole at the driver's seating location. This
test mimics a side impact crash involving a narrow, fixed
object like a utility pole or tree.

Overall vehicle score and frontal crash ratings should ONLY be compared to
other vehicles of similar size and weight. Side crash rating results can be
compared across all classes because all vehicles are hit with the same
force by the same moving barrier or pole.
Thumbs up for the crash dummies!

Acura 2014 MDX Prototype Makes World Debut at North American International
2014 MDX Prototype provides glimpse at luxurious third-generation MDX
The 2014 Acura MDX Prototype made its world debut today at the 2013 North
American International Auto Show, offering a strong indication of the
styling and design direction for the third generation of the popular,
7-passenger Acura MDX performance luxury SUV, launching by mid-2013 in both
all-wheel-drive and front-wheel-drive layouts.
"Our goal is to advance on MDX's already great dynamic performance while
improving fuel economy and luxury comfort," said Mike Accavitti, vice
president of national marketing operations. "Building on the great momentum
we established in 2012 with the launch this year of our flagship RLX,
followed later this year by a terrific new luxury SUV in MDX we are very
excited about the direction of the Acura brand. And we are truly looking
forward to a great 2013."
The "Aero Sculpture" styling of the 2014 MDX Prototype pursues the
direction of a smart, compact and premium appearance with low, wide and
sleek proportions; a clean, efficient and uncluttered design; and elegant,
premium detailing, including the signature Acura Jewel Eye™ LED
headlights. This "aero" image also reflects significant gains in
aerodynamic efficiency, up 16 percent compared to the outgoing 2013 MDX,
achieved through extensive testing in Honda R&D Americas' new wind-tunnel
laboratory in Raymond, Ohio -- where the vehicle is being created.
The 2014 MDX Prototype's sculpted exterior and arcing roofline (1.5-inches
lower than the outgoing model) encase what will be an even more spacious
and versatile cabin compared to the outgoing 2013 MDX. The 2014 MDX
Prototype features a longer wheelbase that enhances ride quality, increases
second-row legroom, and improves third-row seat access.
"While we aren't showcasing the interior today, I can assure you it will
further improve the already great functionality in the cabin and cargo area
while really amping up luxury, comfort and quiet," added Jon Ikeda, chief
designer, Acura Design Studio. "And that's really the focus of this new
MDX, delivering outstanding luxury performance and family capability in a
more refined and alluring package."
In response to strong demand from consumers in warm weather markets Acura
also will, for the first time, offer a front-wheel drive version of MDX in
addition to the all-wheel drive (SH-AWD) model that has earned MDX a
reputation as a leader in dynamic handling and all-weather performance for
a luxury SUV.
The 2014 MDX will also feature an all-new, more rigid and lightweight
chassis, including new front and rear suspension designs that deliver a
more refined, confidence-inspiring, and sporty driving character. An
all-new, direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC SOHC V-6 engine with Variable
Cylinder Management (VCM) will deliver improved torque and more spirited
performance while realizing a significant increase in fuel efficiency to
class-leading levels. Special attention was also paid to improving cabin
quietness, which is greatly enhanced by the vehicle's all-new chassis and
body design and new sound-deadening techniques.
The 2014 MDX also will be equipped with a broad array of advanced safety
technologies, including the next generation Advanced Compatibility
Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and the available Forward Collision
Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems, as well as
visibility technologies such as the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and the
available Blind Spot Information (BSI), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS),
and Active Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow. Further, the 2014
MDX is designed to achieve top-level safety ratings, including a 5-star
Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the
IIHS. All 2013 Acura models other than the outgoing ZDX achieved at least a
TOP SAFETY PICK safety rating, while the TL sedan was one of the first two
vehicles in the industry to achieve TOP SAFETY Pick+ status.
The new MDX will also feature a full array of advanced information
technologies, including the next-generation AcuraLink cloud-based connected
car system featuring Pandora® connectivity, SiriusXM™ radio, SMS text
messaging, and cloud-based Aha™ by Harman connectivity that brings
thousands of personalized news, information and media feeds into the
vehicle via the customer's compatible smartphone and data plan. A premium
Acura/ELS® audio system will be available on the new MDX. Next-generation
AcuraLink will also be available with a host of fee-based convenience,
assistive and security features, such as automated crash notification,
remote locking/unlocking, emergency "SOS" call feature, and live-operator

New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.
