Safety Features in the Acura RLX

The Acura RLX is the complete package with advanced technology and safety features. There are 3-point belts and head restraints on all 5 seating positions. There are additional e-pre-tensioners for the front seat belts to make the experience of wearing a seat belt less uncomfortable. The seat belt pulls the passenger back when impact is detected. The reaction time of the tensioner is as less as milliseconds post impact; they tighten automatically around the front belt to prevent the passenger from being thrown in front. There are load limiters added to the tensioners to alleviate the pressure on the chest. The two airbags in the front are accompanied by 2 side bags and a side curtain to provide coverage to the outboard occupants. There are additional knee bags on the driver’s seat. There are sensors that detect the presence of occupants in the front seat and prevent the airbags from deploying when empty or when the occupant is a child.

There are additional features to improve child safety that range from child secure seats to child airbags. LATCH (Lower Anchor and Tethers for Children) anchors LATCH compatible child seats with ease.

The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure of the car improves the occupant protection during frontal crashes through the utilization of a connected network of structural elements that distribute crash energy evenly along the front of the vehicle. The RLX received a “Good” rating on the impact text conducted by the IIHS in 2016.
