If you look to automotive history, you might be shocked to realize just how unsafe many vehicles were in the past.

Isn’t it worth it to know you and your loved ones are safe? Today, we’re looking at thee 2018 Acura RLX, the most luxurious sedan in this premium lineup. You already know it has the features you want, but how does it stack up in terms of safety?
Standard safety features in the 2018 Acura RLX
There are plenty of features you might consider expected, whether they are legally required or not. Among them are dual-stage front airbags, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, three-point seatbelts, ant-lock brakes, brake assist and tire pressure monitoring.
It isn’t enough for many shoppers to simply have the standard safety, when there are so many advanced systems now available to both make the driving experience safer, but also more convenient. We are, of course, talking about driver assistive technology.
The 2018 Acura RLX has a standard multi-view rear camera with dynamic guidelines that not only helps you see closer to your rear bumper than simply looking behind you, but also helps you get a view of where you will end up parked to help make it easier to maneuver. A blind spot information system alerts you when you attempt to move into a lane that isn’t clear, while lane keeping assist and road departure mitigation help keep you in your lane when you’re drifting. Plus, adaptive cruise control simply makes it more comfortable and convenient to follow traffic without having to turn off your cruise control if the person ahead of you isn’t keeping a consistent speed.
All these features don’t even cover how much construction itself has improved over the years, with Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, side impact door beams and more.
