2016 Acura RLX Earns Top Safety Rating

May 28th, 2015 by

2016 RLX ExteriorAcura has done it again, with the 2016 Acura RLX earning a top 5-star overall safety score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Acura is quickly becoming the safety leader with all of its luxury car innovations, and the RLX is no exception. This score represents the best rating for the government’s New Car Assessment Program, and is representative of 5 star ratings in all 6 crash test categories and a 5-star rollover rating. Both the 2016 RLX and the RLX Sport Hybrid have earned this distinction.

Advanced Suite of Technologies

One of the key factors in Acura’s safety features is the available comprehensive suite of safety and driver assist technologies, which include:

  • Adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow
  • Collision mitigation breaking system
  • Lane keep assist and lane departure warning
  • Road departure mitigation
  • Blind spot information system
  • Multi-rearview camera and surround view camera system
  • Cross traffic monitor
  • 19-inch wheels
  • Fine-tuned chassis

Refined Elegance, Superior Safety

As Acura’s flagship sedan, it is no surprise that the vehicle is a leader in its class. While the RLX has undergone some enhancements for this year’s model, the manufacturer’s suggested retail prices will remain the same, giving you the best value for your Acura dollars. The RLX sport Hybrid builds on the success of the RLX while offering Super Handling All-Wheel Drive and electrically powered torque vectoring for a steady drive in a variety of terrain conditions. This model goes on sale early June for auto enthusiasts.
