The 2013 Acura RDX received a rating of good and earned the award with improved roof strength for protection in rollover crashes.

To measure the rood strength, testes use a metal plate that is pushed against one corner of a vehicle’s roof at a constant speed. The maximum force sustained by the roof before 5 inches of crush is compared to the vehicle’s weight to find the strength-to-weight ratio.

The 2007-12 Acura RDX was rated marginal for roof strength.
