Safety

Nearly all signs indicate that the 2009 RDX is reassuring in its occupant protection and accident avoidance.

 

The Acura 2009 RDX is perhaps the safest vehicle in its class.

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.
