The Car Connection Recognizes Acura RDX as One of 2019’s Safest New Cars

The 2019 Acura RDX has been recognized as one of the Safest New Cars for 2019 by The Car Connection. RDX was only one of four vehicles to be named to the list by The Car Connection by acing their safety tests and meeting specific testing criteria – including being equipped with automatic emergency braking on every model, having a spotless crash-test scorecard, and for having good outward vision and available active safety extras, all of which were critical factors in the selection process.
