2020 Acura RDX Safety
The 2020 Acura RDX is far more than just a pretty face; it’s packed to the gills with innovative safety features that will keep you safer than ever on the road. Thanks to standard AcuraWatch™ — a collection of technologies meant to keep you aware of your surroundings and help you avoid accidents — the 2020 RDX has your back every mile of the way.
When you sit down behind the wheel of the 2020 Acura RDX, you’ll have an unprecedented level of awareness of what’s going on around you. To begin with, every model features an innovative Surround-View Camera. This system combines four cameras on the outside of the body to generate a full 360-degree view of your vehicle’s surroundings, making navigating tight parking lots a breeze. It even offers dynamic guidelines so you can see exactly where you’re headed.
The 2020 RDX also offers an available advanced Blind Spot Information system. This program constantly scans the area to either side and directly behind your vehicle, and can automatically alert you if it detects a car or another obstacle you may not have noticed. When you’re trying to change lanes at a high speed, the Blind Spot Information could be a life-saver.
In addition to keeping you aware of your surroundings, the Acura RDX is constantly working to keep you as safe as possible. On the highway, the Adaptive Cruise Control system with Low-Speed Follow will automatically adjust your speed to keep you a set distance from the vehicle ahead of you and get you back up to your preferred speed once it’s safe to do so. At the same time, the Lane Keeping Assist System will prevent you from unintentionally drifting out of your lane, and can even use delicate corrective steering to make sure you stay perfectly centered.
No matter how comfortable you are behind the wheel, it’s only human to lose focus or overlook a potentially dangerous situation. That’s where the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) comes in. If CMBS™ detects a potential accident, your 2020 RDX will sound an alert so you can hit the brakes. If you don’t react in time, the system will automatically slow your vehicle down to reduce the impact of — or completely avoid — the impending crash.
If you’ve been looking for a midsize crossover that will keep you safer than ever on the road, you can’t do much better than the 2020 Acura RDX.
