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.

Step Inside the Acura NSX Factory

Honda built a facility that effectively combines the craftsmanship of human hands with the precision of automated manufacturing techniques to build the all-new Acura NSX supercar. The facility is a 200,000-squart-foot portion of the Honda Manufacturing of Ohio building in Marysville, Ohio. It took an investment of over $20 million to complete the necessary renovations. The automaker paid close attention to every little detail of the facility as every aspect serves a purpose. The walls and floors were painted in a way that reflects light, the open floor plan prevents the various production processes from becoming isolated, and the glass that is present throughout the facility allows for every process to be clearly seen. Humans are guiding the robots during the production process as the pieces of the chassis are welded to one another by robotic arms that are overseen by veteran workers. There is a welding station for each chassis component and the end product shows no signs of human-operated welding. Before being painted with five color coats and two clear coats, the chassis undergoes extensive quality control. Following paint, every chassis is put on an individual rolling car to be inspected by a small group of workers for about 60 minutes. Large-screens use advanced technology to display each step and the production process in real time. The facility can crank out about 10 to 12 cars per day.
