Top-Tier Ratings

Stay in Control Behind the Wheel

Every Acura RDX comes with antilock brakes, a full suite or airbags, and a rearview camera, but that’s only the start! The 2017 Acura RDX has also been equipped with some innovative safety features that will help keep you in full control even when you’re tasked with navigating more difficult conditions:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) – When you’re driving on unpredictable surfaces or in inclement weather, the VSA® system protects you by decreasing the amount of power and braking for individual wheels when necessary—essentially reducing the dangers associated with understeering and oversteering.
  • Agile Handling Assist® – Working alongside the Vehicle Stability Assist™ system, Agile Handling Assist® is able to recognize your driving maneuvers and send braking power to the inside wheel when you’re taking a tight curve in order to help you maintain confidence.
  • All-Wheel Drive – If you decide to opt for the RDX’s available all-wheel drive system, you’ll enjoy increased traction and control behind the wheel—even on slippery surfaces and in bad weather.

Advanced Safety Technologies

Plus, this crossover has even more in store for you. The 2017 Acura RDX is also offered with a number of driver assist safety features, including:

  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Multi-View Rear Camera
