This looks pretty good for frontal offset...

In the 40 mph frontal offset test, the 2001 Acura MDX's occupant compartment "held its shape extremely well, and the dummy went squarely into the airbag. This is an example of very good performance," O'Neill says. "The dummy injury measures were all low, indicating that a driver in a similar real-world crash should walk away with nothing worse than minor injuries."
