For us,
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.

Help Protect Everyone

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.

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.

Available in the ILX and every Acura sedan and crossover model.

ILX shown, visual alert for blind spot information appears at the base of the A-pillar in all other models.

Active Stabilization

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.

Available in the RDX and every Acura sedan and crossover model.

Innovative structure

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.

Available in the TLX and every Acura sedan and crossover model.

Braking Systems

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.

Available in the RLX and every Acura sedan and crossover model.

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.

Child Safety

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.

Available in the MDX and every Acura sedan and crossover model.
