Safety is a big part of reliability for Syosset car shoppers, and we have the team at U.S. News to thank for proving that Acura goes further than their Lexus counterparts. To determine the safest brand, they took the average of each brand’s safety scores for each model. They found that:

  • Of the seven Acuras in their rankings, six of them had safety scores which averaged out to 9.8 out of a possible 10 points. The Acura RLX flagship luxury sedan and Acura RDX compact luxury SUV both contributed a full 10 points to the total.
  • Of 16 Lexus vehicles, only 10 had safety scores that averaged out to 9.5 out of 10.
