Default RDX: All-New 2013 Acura RDX Joins Acura Line-Up of IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Vehicles

The all-new 2013 Acura RDX has received the highest possible safety rating of TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS award recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes, plus rollover performance based on ratings in the Institute's tests.


The all-new 2013 RDX, along with the 2012 TL, MDX, and TSX sedan and Sport Wagon, have all earned IIHS 2012 TOP SAFETY PICK ratings and the highest possible score of GOOD in all four Institute tests, including the rigorous roof-strength test.


For 2013, a revised 4-wheel disc brake system on the RDX teams with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Brake Assist to further enhance safety and greater driver control. To meet the federal government's new standard (FMVSS 216) for roof crush resistance, the RDX body incorporates several new structural enhancements in the roof and side pillar areas.


All models in the current Acura line up utilize the Advanced Compatibility Engineering? (ACE?) body structure. ACE is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. The ACE design utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This enhanced frontal crash energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment.


Standard safety equipment on all Acura models includes Vehicle Stability Assist? (VSAŽ) 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).


Acura's "Safety Through Innovation" initiative is based on the brand's commitment to leadership in safety? and excellent safety is a paramount element in every new vehicle that Acura builds. The initiative's goal is for all Acura models to provide a high level of safety regardless of size or price of the vehicle.
