The 2019 Acura RDX is One Safe SUV

 

The all-new, redesigned 2019 Acura RDX has another big brag to add to its growing list of impressive features, accolades, and wins since its release just a few weeks ago. Along with being an affordable option for families, a luxury choice for discerning style icons, a sporty performance crossover for the adventurous, and a great all-around option for any Concord driver looking for their next compact SUV.

The 2019 Acura RDX was named a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick+. We are very excited to be able to share this news*, and it makes this model an even more tempting choice for shoppers.

The new 2019 Acura RDX's standard suite of AcuraWatch active safety technology was a driving factor in the luxury SUV's success at being named a top safety choice in 2018 for North Carolina.


2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick +

The 2019 Acura RDX was rated "Good" (which, though underwhelming, is the highest possible rating the IIHS gives) in every one of its crashworthiness tests during 2018, and its available premium headlights were rated "Good", as well. It was awarded a "Superior" rating in 2018 testing for front crash prevention in the Crash Avoidance & Mitigation.

One of the tests performed by the IIHS is a "roof strength test": force is applied to the roof until it collapses in five inches. For the 2019 Acura RDX, testers needed to use 21,000 pounds of force to compromise the roof--and for a vehicle that weighs about 3,800 pounds, that's impressive.

The 2019 Acura RDX was also given a "Good +" rating for ease of use of LATCH child seat anchors--perfect for families looking for a safe vehicle.
