2007 Acura RDX Earns an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Award

All-new SUV One of Only Three Luxury SUVs to Receive Honor for 2007



TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 21, 2006 – The all-new 2007 Acura RDX was one of only three luxury SUVs (out of 13 total vehicles) to earn a 2007 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety TOP SAFETY PICK Award. The annual award, given to SUVs for the first time this year, recognizes vehicles that perform best in protecting passengers in front, rear and side crashes based on their ratings in the Institute’s tests.

“We are very pleased that the RDX is being recognized for its outstanding safety ratings by the IIHS,” said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. “It is our goal to continue to offer Acura customers peace of mind by providing safety through advanced technology.”

The Acura RDX went on sale in August and is equipped with the latest safety technologies. Like the entire Acura lineup, it features the application of front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), side curtain airbags for front and rear outboard seats and Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) as standard equipment. In addition, RDX utilizes Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure which helps to disperse collision forces over a larger frontal area.

In addition to safety technologies, the RDX features engineering breakthroughs for Acura, including the luxury division's first turbocharged and intercooled engine, and the first adaptation of the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD™) system to an SUV.
