2019 Acura RLX: One of the Safest Luxury Cars Available

The 2019 Acura RLX’s safety rating makes it one of the safest luxury cars on the road–and you don’t have to take our word for it. As a result of the RLX’s perfect performance in every round of crash testing, the experts at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have awarded this superior sedan with a 5-star overall score! More and more of Wisconsin’s drivers are taking notice, and once you’ve had the chance to explore its generous array of safety and Driver Assistive technologies, you’ll have no trouble seeing why it stands out.

2019 Acura RLX Safety Features: AcuraWatch, Standard

The 2019 Acura RLX is priced at just $61,900 MSRP*, but since every model comes standard with standard AcuraWatch safety features, Acura’s premium luxury sedan remains a remarkable value. The next-generation technologies grouped under the AcuraWatch heading combine built-in cameras, sensors, radar, and AI-powered processing in order to prevent collisions and mitigate the dangers posed by lapses in attention.

  • Head-Up Warning System: Every RLX features a system that displays important vehicle information and settings directly on your windshield. When you’re in motion, you can use the system to receive AcuraWatch warnings without taking your eyes off the road.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System: AcuraWatch cameras monitor the painted lines on the road, and use intelligent positioning systems to keep you centered in your lane of choice. An additional Lane Departure Warning beeps to alert you if you begin to change lanes unintentionally.

  • Road Departure Mitigation System: It’s easy to lose control if your vehicle moves over the road’s shoulder, so the Road Departure Mitigation System gently directs you back towards the center of your lane if it detects that you’re in danger of crossing over.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow: Your RLX will automatically adjust its cruising speed in response to other vehicles when you engage Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow. This system takes your preferred speed and preferred follow distance into account when you’re moving down the freeway.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: When the RLX’s standard Forward Collision Warning isn’t effective in slowing you down, a Collision Mitigation Braking System can take full control. When you’re moving at low speeds, it can even bring you to a halt automatically.

  • Traffic Jam Assist: No one enjoys being caught in traffic, but when you drive the RLX, you can take the sting out of your commute’s most grueling moments. Traffic Jam Assist works when you’re stopped or moving at very low speeds, and it moves you automatically with the slow flow of other drivers.

Driver Assistive Technology

Of course, the RLX’s AcuraWatch systems aren’t the only automated technologies that work automatically to keep you safe on the road. The features we’ve highlighted below surveil the RLX’s periphery and maximize driver awareness.

  • Blind Spot Information System: 360-degree awareness is the key to avoiding dangerous surprises on the road, but eliminating uncertainty is only possible with top technology features. Every RLX features a Blind Spot Information System and a Rear Cross Traffic Monitor. Both systems track movement in these normally hard-to-see areas, and keep you aware of potential danger.

  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors: Finding that perfect parking spot–while protecting your RLX from bumps and scratches–becomes a whole lot easier with Front and Rear Parking Sensors. These systems increase the rate at which they beep as you move closer to another car or obstacle.

  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers: Driving in heavy rain is stressful enough on its own. These advanced windshield wipers make things a little easier by automatically adjusting their speed to the rate of rainfall, and ceasing their motion automatically when the weather dies down.

Active Safety Systems in the RLX

Most of our friends and neighbors already know that the 2019 Acura RLX’s precision handling makes it incredibly fun to drive–but they may not realize that great performance provides a foundation for superior safety. In the RLX, Acura’s all-wheel drive technology comes together with systems engineered to enhance visibility and stability.

  • LED Headlights with Automatic High Beams: Although your vehicle’s headlights may not be the most exciting technologies it offers, a clear view of the road ahead can make all the difference when it comes to preventing collisions. LED Daytime Running Lights and Automatic, self-adjusting high beams provide excellent visibility, day or night.

  • Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive: The Acura RLX’s Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive can send up to 70% of its torque directly to the rear wheels, shifting power from side to side in order to maximize your power and control through every turn. Each RLX also comes equipped with Agile Handling Assist, as well as Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control.

  • Rear and Surround-View Cameras: You’ll be able to navigate cramped and crowded parking lots with ease when you take advantage of your RLX’s standard Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines. An additional Surround View Camera allows you to view the entire area around your RLX with a projected bird’s eye view.

RLX Passive Safety Protections

The 2019 Acura RLX is as agile as any car on the road, but those who want to drive with peace of mind need to know that their vehicle is ready for anything. We noted above that the 2019 RDX received five star safety ratings in all of its front, side, and rollover collision tests. With this in mind, it’s clear that even if you can’t avoid every collision, you can count on this premium luxury sedan to keep you safe.

  • Theft Deterrent with Electronic Immobilizer: In the event that another person attempts to break into your car, the RLX’s built-in alarms will sound, and its ignition will be disabled. When you’ve integrated your vehicle with your smartphone using the AcuraLink app, you’ll receive instant updates when your alarm goes off, and you’ll even be able to track your vehicle’s movements.

  • Comprehensive Crash Protection: Three-point seat belts are standard for all seating positions, and those in the front seats are height-adjustable and equipped with automatic tensioning. Advanced Front Airbags, a Driver’s Knee Airbag, Front Side Airbags, and Side Curtain Airbags all come standard.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering: Advanced Compatibility Engineering, or ACE body structure, protects the integrity of the cabin by allowing portions of the RLX’s body to absorb the full impact of the collision. This combination of rigid and collapsible frame structures more evenly distributes the forces generated in a crash, keeping your passengers safe from harm.
