Active safety features with Acura's AcuraWatch can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. An active safety system that is standard on the 2023 Acura TLX is Collision Mitigation Braking System. There are optional safety features on the 2023 Acura TLX which may add to the cost but should be strongly considered --- Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Assist.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
