Safety Features of the 2018 Acura RLX

According to the experts at Motor Trend, the 2018 Acura RLX is “perfectly suited for both road trips and daily commutes,” and that’s not all of its appeal. The RLX’s safety features make it the perfect luxury sedan for drivers who are always on the move, and it’s available now for Chicagoland drivers.

AcuraWatch Safety Suite

The celebrated AcuraWatch safety suite includes some of the most advanced technology features available today! The features grouped in this package process information from the RLX’s motion sensors and radar systems and work automatically to keep you and your passengers safe.


  • Road Departure Mitigation: The Acura RLX’s Road Departure Mitigation System keeps track of the road’s edge and makes sure that you don’t slip over the shoulder. If it senses danger, it will gently nudge you back in the right direction.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: In the RLX, a Lane Departure Warning and a Lane Keeping Assist System work together to keep you planted firmly in your lane of choice. If you move toward a dividing line without activating your turn signal, your steering wheel can help you stay centered.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: Head-on collisions can cause a lot of damage, but in the RLX, you’ll enjoy several layers of high-tech protection. This vehicle’s Collision Mitigation Braking System can bring you to a stop automatically after alerting you to the danger with the Head-Up Warning on your windshield.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: If you’re tired of shifting in and out of cruise control on your commutes, then you’ll love the RLX’s Adaptive Cruise Control. When you set your preferred speed and follow distance, the RLX will automatically adjust to remain within the flow of traffic.
  • Traffic Jam Assist: Next time you get caught in heavy traffic, simply activate the RLX’s Traffic Jam Assist feature and let this sedan’s computer go to work. It will keep you moving forward with the other cars around you, leaving you freer to relax during these stressful situations.

Enhance Your Visibility

The best defense against accidents has always been great visibility! In the RLX, you’ll receive numerous safety features that can enhance your vision and knowledge of the road.


2018 Acura RLX Blind Spot System

Blind Spot Information System: Small indicators on either side of the cabin will light up to let you know when another vehicle enters your blind spot. When you activate your turn signal, the system will beep to alert you if there’s another vehicle blocking your path.

2018 Acura RLX Rearview Camera

Surround-View Camera System: Whenever you’re maneuvering in tight spaces, you’ll be able to check all angles using the RLX’s surround-view camera system. It’s a standard feature in the Advance Package.


2018 Acura RLX Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Every RLX comes standard with a multi-angle rearview camera that offers normal, wide-angle, and top-down views. Dynamic guidelines also come standard, and they make parallel parking a breeze!

2018 Acura RLX LED Running Lights

LED Daytime Running Lights: You won’t miss a thing on the road when these LED daytime running lights are active. When night falls, you’ll be able to take advantage of automatic on/off headlights. It’s standard with both RLX packages.

Stability and Handling Capability

Acura’s engineers have made sure that the RLX fosters safety and stability where it counts the most—at the points where your vehicle makes contact with the road. A number of standard safety features and drivetrain options allow this year’s RLX to handle like a dream.

2018 Acura RLX Vehicle Stability
Vehicle Stability Assist: The RLX comes standard with Vehicle Stability Assist, Traction Control, Motion Adaptive Steering, and Agile Handling Assist. Together, these systems transfer power, torque, and braking pressure to the wheels that need them the most, ensuring superior control when you’re going around a curve or making a turn.
2018 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Super Handling AWD
Sport Hybrid Super Handling AWD: The Sport Handling AWD upgrade increases horsepower, torque, and fuel efficiency, but that’s not all it can do. Its three electric motors can direct power to each wheel independently, thereby maximizing your traction and stability, even in less-than-hospitable driving conditions.
2018 RLX - Precision All-Wheel Steering
Precision All-Wheel Steering: Precision All-Wheel Steering comes standard on the baseline RLX. Although these models are technically powered by front-wheel drive, P-AWS allows the rear wheels to respond to your commands.
