All-New 2013 Acura RDX Awarded "Top Safety Pick" by IIHS
The IIHS award means the RDX did a good job at protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes, plus rollover performance based on ratings in the Institute's tests.
Acura can also boast with the 2012 TL, MDX, and TSX sedan and Sport Wagon, which have all earned IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick rating.
To secure the rating for rollover crashes, the RDX’s roof has been enhanced with several new structures that enhance the strength of the pillar areas.
Standard safety equipment on all Acura models includes Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control, ABS, dual-stage/multiple-threshold front airbags, front-side airbags with passenger side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), side curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions, front seats with integrated active head restraints, front seatbelts with automatic tensioning system and load limiters, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Daytime Running Lights (DRL).
