safety is personal
Stories of appreciation for Acura safety
performance are felt deeply. When we get
letters of thanks, we take them to heart. We
keep them in a scrapbook and look through
it often, keeping a real connection to why
we do what we do.
The first luxury brand
awarded top safety
ratings across its entire
- NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score
Our philosophy is simple—provide safety for
everyone. Not only do we meet government
standards, we go above and beyond to focus
on passengers, pedestrians and all who
share the road.
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.
Kids will be kids. We help you keep
them safe with sophisticated features like
windows, moonroofs and power tailgates
that automatically reverse if they sense
that little fingers might be in the way.
