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.

REVIEWS

AutoWeek

“In regular traffic doing regular suburban driving you will like the RLX. So will your passengers. Everyone who rode in the back seat commented positively, all unsolicited comments by the way.”

“…if you just get in and drive it around like a normal car, you're likely to be pleasantly surprised at how nicely it functions as a roomy luxury sedan.”

“The 14-speaker sound system is designed by Krell, a company that lacks the brand-recognition (read: salivated at by audio nerds) of something as tawdry as Bose but quietly designs some of the highest-end and most expensive audio equipment on Earth.”
