SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal, side, rear impact; 'good,' roof strength
IIHS

Five stars Overall Five stars frontal and side impact
NHTSA




The 2014 Acura RDX already has some great crash-test ratings--as well as a top-notch set of safety equipment.

Front, side, and side-curtain airbags are standard on the RDX, along with anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, daytime running lights, a backup camera, and a rollover sensor to trigger appropriate airbags. The RDX is missing some of the advanced active-safety features of the larger (and pricier) MDX, however.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the RDX a five-star Overall Rating, as well as top five-star scores in frontal and side impact. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the RDX top 'good' ratings in all frontal, side, and rear tests, along with roof strength; although it hasn't yet been tested in the new small overlap frontal category.


Conclusion

A solid set of standard equipment and some of the best ratings in this class for safety make the 2014 RDX a secure pick.

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.
