Is the 2012 Acura RDX a Safe Car?

Like its cousin, the Acura ZDX, the RDX implements Acura's Safety through Innovation initiative, beginning with its construction. The RDX employs Acura's new Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. In addition to this high-strength and innovative body structure, Acura has added a special frame member below the front bumper designed to engage the front bumper of a lower vehicle, allowing the bumper systems of both vehicles to disperse energy more efficiently in a crash.

Inside the RDX, customers will find a full complement of passive safety features including the latest generation of dual-stage, multiple-threshold airbags for the driver and front passenger, side airbags for the driver and front passenger and side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor for all outboard occupants.

2012 Acura RDX vs the competition

BMW X3 - Starting at $37,100, the X3 is priced similarly to the all-wheel-drive version of the RDX. The BMW has the advantage of having been refreshed for 2012, whereas the RDX has remained unchanged since its inception.

Volvo XC60 - Starting at $33,300, a base front-wheel-drive model with an RDX-comparable 240 horsepower, the Volvo XC60 has several advantages over the Acura: it's newer, it handles better and we think it's far better-looking.

Lexus RX350 - With a base front-wheel-drive model starting at $37,625, the RX350 is significantly pricier than the RDX with little to show for it. However, the RX350 does have 35 more horsepower and one extra gear in its automatic transmission.
