2020 Acura RDX Earns Highest Possible Safety Award from IIHS
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the 2020 Acura RDX the highest possible safety rating; TOP SAFETY PICK+. The 2020 RDX earned a top rating in all crashworthiness tests and a “SUPERIOR” rating for its Collision Mitigation Braking System.
The 2020 RDX is equipped with the newest generation of Acura’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure which includes new high strength steel door stiffener rings and eight airbags. The RDX also features standard AcuraWatch™ driver-assistive technologies including Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow, and Road Departure Mitigation. Acura’s JewelEye™ LED headlights also helped the RDX receive this rating.
To earn the 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must earn good crashworthiness ratings in all test modes, including the challenging passenger-side small overlap test. It also needs available front crash prevention (standard on RDX) that earns an advanced or superior rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing and standard good- or acceptable- rated headlights.
