Active Safety

Taking action to keep you safe.

Acura vehicles are designed and engineered to help avoid collisions before they occur. It starts with basics, such as precision steering, nimble suspension, and anti-lock brakes for superb responsiveness and enhanced stability. It then moves up to innovative technologies, such as models with headlights that swivel to illuminate curves in the road, and the Collision Mitigation Braking System that gives you advanced warning of a possible impact situation and begins braking automatically if impact is imminent. In addition, every Acura model has a 4-channel Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®)12 system that helps you maintain control in all driving conditions by dynamically adjusting brake pressure and engine power.

Acura also keeps driver distraction and ergonomics in mind when designing controls, displays and any other driver- vehicle interface. For example, all current Acura navigation systems can be operated by Voice Recognition™ and have their screens mounted high on the dash for minimum eye diversion. These innovations fuel Acura's drive to help you steer clear of trouble before it begins. Additionally, using a camera mounted between the windshield and the rearview mirror, the Lane Departure Warning system (LDW)56 alerts you with a beep when the vehicle unintentionally leaves a detected lane, and the Forward Collision Warning system (FCW)55 alerts you to a potential collision with a vehicle detected ahead, using both visual and audible warnings.
