2007 RDX earns TOP SAFETY PICK Award

Acura's RDX is only one of three luxury SUV's from a total of 13 to win a TOP SAFETY PICK Award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This award "recognizes vehicles that perform best in protecting passengers in front, rear and side crashes based on their ratings in the Institute's tests."

"Like the entire Acura lineup, it features the application of front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), side curtain airbags for front and rear outboard seats and Vehicle Stability Assist(TM) (VSA(R)) as standard equipment. In addition, RDX utilizes Advanced Compatibility Engineering(TM) (ACE(TM)) body structure which helps to disperse collision forces over a larger frontal area."

The RDX is unique to the other Acura's because it is the first vehicle to be equipped with Acura's first turbocharger and intercooled engine. The RDX is also the first SUV to use Acura's Super-Handling All Wheel Drive system (SH-AWD), which made a market debut on the 2005 Acura RL.
