TLX Receives NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score

We’re proud to receive a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score safety rating from NHSTA37, in part due to our Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. ACE uses ultra-high strength steel to disperse front impact energy so less force is transferred inside.
