DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT.

Top Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA
Acura solidifies its position as a safety leader and innovator in the luxury segment with the 2017 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.
TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from IIHS
The 2017 RLX joins the Acura ILX, MDX and RDX to earn a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). All Acura models earned a top score of SUPERIOR in its front crash prevention test thanks to the available AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver assistive technologies.
The Car Connection
“RLX is one of the more subtle luxury cars; the design is certainly not in your face, and there are no gimmicks inside.”
“True to the RL's legacy, the front seats fit like broad-backed executive desk chairs. They have 12-way adjustment and standard heating, with ventilation an option.”
