Safety Features of the 2019 Acura RDX

You don’t have to compromise on the features you love in order to drive one of the safest SUVs around! The 2019 Acura RDX is available now at a Wisconsin Acura dealer near you, and although it hasn’t yet been evaluated by prominent crash testing agencies, our friends and neighbors are already excited about this freshly redesigned crossover. As noted by the writers at Consumer Reports, even this year’s baseline model will come standard with AcuraWatch safety features. We’ve broken down everything you need to know about the RDX’s Active, Passive, and Driver-Assistive safety features in the space below.


The AcuraWatch features behave like a second driver, helping to keep you safe from common and uncommon dangers alike!

  • Early Warning Systems: Every RDX comes equipped with a Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and a Forward Collision Warning (FCW). The LDW system beeps to alert you whenever you’re in danger of changing lanes without your turn signal. FCW monitors the road ahead and lets you know if you’re in danger of crashing. On models equipped with the Advance Package, both are paired with an innovative Head-Up Warning System.
  • Lane Guidance: The AcuraWatch package includes a Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and a Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM). Each feature uses a combination of cameras and sensors to keep track of road lines and keep you centered in your lane, gently guiding you back towards the center whenever necessary.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow can adjust your rate of travel in response to the flow of traffic, slowing you down and speeding you up as appropriate, without ever requiring you to exit cruise control. Just set your preferred speed and follow distance and let the technology go to work!
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: The RDX’s Collision Mitigation Braking System is an automated line of defense against dangerous frontal collisions. When the package’s Forward Collision Warning isn’t sufficient to slow you down, the CMBS intervenes to bring you to a halt automatically.

Visibility and Awareness

If eye strain is a problem when you’re at the wheel, the RDX’s visibility-enhancing features will let you drive with confidence.

  • Blind Spot Information System: Drivers who upgrade with the Acura RDX’s Technology Package will be able to take advantage of a Blind Spot Information System (BSI) and a Rear Cross-Traffic Monitor. Each feature monitors a normally hard-to-see area, providing automatic alerts whenever another driver enters your periphery.
  • Headlights: Every 2019 RDX comes equipped with LED Daytime Running Lights and Automatic High Beam Headlights. Each feature works to improve your visibility, and once you’ve experienced them you’ll know there’s no substitute for a clear view of the road ahead.
  • Parking Sensors: The RDX’s Technology Package includes Front and Rear Parking Sensors! With the auditory alerts each sensor provides, it’s easier than ever to get situated in that perfect parking spot.
  • Surround View Camera: You can get a bird’s-eye view of your immediate periphery with the RDX’s available Surround View Camera System. It comes standard with the Advance Package, where it’s been included alongside a more conventional Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines, included on every RDX.

A More Secure Cabin

Not even the most advanced safety features can guarantee that you’ll never run into trouble. The RDX has been outfitted with features that offer superior protection in the event of a collision.

  • Next Generation ACE: Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure allows the RDX to protect your passengers. Certain portions of the RDX’s frame have been designed to collapse on impact. They’ll absorb the most dangerous collision forces immediately, securing the integrity of the cabin.
  • Comprehensive Airbag Protection: Every RDX comes equipped with Advanced Front Airbags (SRS), Front Side Airbags, Side Curtain Airbags, and Front Knee Airbags.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: All drivers need to be able to depend on their vehicle’s tires! When you’re at the wheel of the RDX, you’ll be able to take advantage of a Tire Pressure Monitoring System that includes Tire Fill Assist as well as Location and Pressure Indicators.

Braking and Handling

When you’re behind the wheel of the Acura RDX, you’ll be able to use its Active safety features to proactively prevent danger. The following technologies maximize your control over the RDX. Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive is available on every trim.

  • Agile Handling Assist: The Agile Handling Assist feature improves the performance of Vehicle Stability Assist by intelligently applying braking to each wheel individually. The feature comes standard on every Acura.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist: Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control helps to keep you stable when you’re rounding a curve. It does so by adjusting the relative rate at which your inside tires turn, helping you glide out of every curve.
  • Braking Systems: The RDX’s brakes have been optimized with Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist technology, an Electric Parking Brake, and Automatic Brake Hold. These features are standard across all models.
