For us,
safety is personal

Stories of appreciation for Acura safety

Driver Assistance


Roads can put you on the defensive.
Features associated with AcuraWatch can
help improve the driver's situational awareness
and, in certain circumstances, intervene to help
avoid a situation or lessen its severity.

In wet conditions, Vehicle Stability Assist can
reduce the dangers of over and under steering
and loss of traction, reducing torque and
applying brakes to each wheel as needed.

The first line of defense in collision safety is
in the structure of the car itself. Our Advanced
Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body
construction helps reduce and disperse forces
in front crashes with virtually all car sizes.

Distractions happen, so the Collision
Mitigation Braking System can alert you
to obstacles detected ahead. It’s
programmed to provide visual alerts
with ample warning time—but if you
don’t react, it can brake for you.

Depending on the circumstances, CMBS may not go through all the alert stages before initiating the last stage (of collision mitigation). CMBS cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation affected by high interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
