2020 Acura RDX Safety Features

As noted by Car and Driver, the Acura RDX offers a “bold-looking alternative to typical compact-luxury crossovers”, but that doesn’t mean you need to let everyday peace of mind take a back seat. 2020 Acura RDX safety features are top of the line with even the entry-level package, and this athletic crossover SUV also earned a coveted Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS and a 5-Star Safety Rating from the NHTSA* for its ability to protect occupants from harm.

Acura RDX Driver Assistance Technology

Every Acura RDX trim level provides an impressive selection of advanced AcuraWatch driver assistance features as standard, including:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low Speed Follow: Maintains a constant speed while keeping a safe distance between your Acura RDX and the vehicle ahead. It can even decelerate and stop your MDX if the vehicle ahead comes to a stop.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Provides corrective steering input to help keep you in the middle of your detected lane.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): When there’s a possibility of your MDX colliding with a vehicle or pedestrian, the CMBS alerts you and helps minimize collision severity. A Head-Up Warning (HUW) system is added with the Advance Package.
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System: Provides an alert and corrective steering if you start crossing common edge of road markers or leave the road entirely.
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System: Scans the area ahead to warn you of potential frontal collisions in enough time for you to take corrective action.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System: Provides tactile and visual alerts if you start to stray from your lane without signaling.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: Cycles high beams on and off automatically as other road users approach and pass your MDX after the sun has done down.

Available driver assistance features include:

  • Surround-View Camera System: Provides a 360-degree top-down view of your Acura MDX for added confidence during low-speed maneuvers.
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors: Audible feedback lets you slip into parking spaces and through tight areas without risking dings and scratches.
  • Blind Spot Information System: Lets you know when a vehicle enters your blind spot and provides a warning if you attempt an unsafe lane change before it moves on.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor: Scans to left and right as you reverse to warn you of approaching vehicles.

    Acura RDX Passive Safety Features

    If you’re wondering just how the Acura RDX managed to earn a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS even as testing criteria are made stricter and stricter, you only have to read about its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. Using a sophisticated network of supports, it distributes crash-force energy evenly to direct it away from the passenger compartment.


    The ACE body structure is one of the Acura RDX’s leading passive safety features. They’re responsible for protecting you and your passengers from harm as far as possible in the unlikely event of a collision. Further passive safety features include:

    • Advanced Front Airbags (SRS)
    • Front Side Airbags
    • Side Curtain Airbags
    • Front Knee Airbags
    • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) Child-Seat Mounting System
