We’re thrilled to share yet another reason why we’re excited to have the 2019 Acura RDX in our Acura showroom, the place where you’ll find all the latest Acura models. This compact luxury SUV has earned an impressive honor from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Every year, the IIHS evaluates vehicles in various automotive classes for safety by performing a series of crash tests that also involve an examination of the cars’ headlights and front crash warning and intervention systems, assuming one is available for a given automobile. Based on the way a vehicle performs in these tests, the car earns a score which indicates how safe it is relative to the other automobiles in its class. The highest award a vehicle can earn is Top Safety Pick+, which is the rating the 2019 Acura RDX received.

“The 2019 Acura RDX excelled in our six crashworthiness evaluations, including the roof strength test. Our testing apparatus applied over 21,000 lbs of force to the…roof [of the Acura RDX] before it crushed five inches. That’s more than five times the weight of the vehicle,” said the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

“The 2019 Acura RDX offers the highest level of standard safety and driver-assistance features in its class, so earning class-leading safety ratings is a strong proof point of the technology and design innovation we’re bringing to the game,” said Jon Ikeda, Acura vice president & general manager.
