2019 Acura RDX Safety Features

2019 Acura RDX Safety Features

The 2019 Acura RDX is a versatile crossover SUV with power, capability, and available AWD on the road and luxury, technology, and comfort inside the cabin. But as a five-passenger SUV that’s a great option for families, the RDX keeps safety as a top priority. Kelley Blue Book says that “one of the best attributes about the new RDX is its roster of safety and driving systems, collectively known as AcuraWatch.” AcuraWatch is standard on every model of the RDX as is a host of other passive and active safety features. Drivers who want to explore the upper trim levels will find even more safety technology.

  • Active and passive safety as the standard
  • AcuraWatch systems on every model
  • More safety technology throughout the trim levels

Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

Safety in the RDX starts with the Next-Generation Advance Compatibility Engineering Body Structure. The design utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.

Passive Safety

The RDX includes a list of passive safety features such as seat belts, airbags, and security systems that are there for you when you need them most.

  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags
  • Front Knee Airbags
  • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) child-seat mounting system
  • Theft-Deterrent System with Electronic Immobilizer

Active Safety Features

Safety meets performance with active safety features that ensure the RDX is operating at its best, even in inclement weather or less that ideal road conditions. These features help the RDX to maintain good tractive control of the road, come to a complete stop more quickly and safely during an emergency braking situation, and prevent skidding across the road.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering

  • Agile Handling Assist

  • 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System

  • Electronic Brake Distribution

  • Brake Assist

  • Electric Parking Brake

  • Automatic Brake Hold


AcuraWatch is a package of driver-assistive technology that helps drivers stay safe. AcuraWatch comes standard on every model of the RDX and includes systems that warn, prevent and mitigate impacts.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System – The RDX can detect when another vehicle is dangerously approaching the RDX and can engage the brakes to mitigate an impact.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow – Drivers select their desired speed and the distance interval with the vehicle ahead and this system automatically adjusts to changes in the flow of traffic.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System – If the RDX veers out of its lane on the highway, this system can nudge the steering to bring it backinto the center of the lane.

  • Road Departure Mitigation System – If the RDX rolls over lane lines and road markings, this system can engage the braking systems to prevent the RDX from going off the road.

  • Forward Collision Warning – Front sensors detect when an oncoming vehicle or other object is dangerously heading towards the RDX and they issue a warning for the driver to take swift action.

  • Lane Departure Warning – If the RDX begins to sway out of its lane on the highway, this system warns the driver to correct its course.

More Safety Technology

Throughout the packages and trim levels, drivers will find even more technology that helps drivers stay safe and ensures the RDX is clearly visible to other drivers. And the Maintenance Minder System can help you keep track of oil changes and other maintenance needed to keep your RDX running optimally.

  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
