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 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 almost any driving condition by dynamically adjusting brake pressure and engine power.

Acura also keeps the potential for 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 using 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. Available on the ILX, TLX and RDX, while standard on all MDX and RLX models, the AcuraWatch system consists of several safety and driver assistive systems using in part, a camera mounted between the windshield and the rearview mirror that, for example, enables the Lane keeping Assist System59 to alert when the vehicle unintentionally leaves a detected lane, and then gently steer you back to the lane center.
