With a good list of safety equipment and impressive (though not perfect) safety ratings, the 2011 Acura RDX is among the safer ranks in its class.

The RDX earns top 'good' ratings in frontal and side impact from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), though since the agency hasn't yet tested it for roof strength it hasn't yet garnered the Top Safety Accolade this year. The 2011 Acura RDX still hasn't been tested in the tougher, revised 2011 New Car Assessment Program, the federal government's crash-test program run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Under the former NHTSA tests, the RDX earned top five-star ratings, while in the new, revised test, the CR-V, which is still structurally related to the RDX, has earned four stars across the board.

The list of standard safety features lend further peace of mind. Traction and stability control, anti-lock brakes, active head restraints, and side and curtain airbags and a rearview camera are standard.

Although a few of the top-tech options, such as lane-departure warning systems or blind-spot detection systems-features that are becoming more common on high-end vehicles, aren't offered in the RDX.

Conclusion

Those who put the priority on safety should keep the 2011 Acura RDX near the top of the list.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
