Nearly all signs indicate that the 2009 RDX is reassuring in its occupant protection and accident avoidance.
Cars.com reports the RDX earns the IIHS' top rating of Good, a feat that earns a Top Safety Pick award.
Forbes Autos says safety is a part of its design. 'The hood is specially designed with collapsible hinges.'
Edmunds gives the nod to standard features such as 'front-seat side airbags' and 'side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor.'
Consumer Guide points out there are 'no factory options' on the RDX's order sheet. It's missing features becoming common on luxury cars, features like adaptive cruise control.
