Top Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA

Acura solidifies its position as a safety leader and innovator in the luxury segment with the 2016 RLX’s NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program. Specifically, the RLX earned five stars in the Front Crash, Side Crash and Rollover tests. The Acura ACE™ body structure design played the primary role in achieving this level of safety. The Multi-View Rear Camera, available Forward Collision Warning system, and Vehicle Stability Assist™ and Lane Departure Warning systems were also taken into account.

The RLX joins the MDX, RDX, TLX and ILX, each of which has a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA making Acura the only luxury brand awarded NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle Ratings across all its model lines.

“What makes the car’s cabin is the quality of materials.”

“Look out the front of the car and you can’t miss another new feature, the head-up display…In addition to displaying vehicle speed, there are screens for the tachometer, navigation instructions and the real time hybrid drivetrain display. During two days of testing in and around San Francisco, we never looked at the speedometer in the gauge cluster. Why don’t more automakers offer this?”

“In performance driving situations, it is sharp and intuitive and yet it can also coddle the driver with a smooth ride quality, excellent sound deadening and even a start-stop system that won’t startle you.

“…it offers real driving enjoyment and the “gotta-have-it” factor of ground-breaking technology the Germans are usually known for.”
