RDX22_120.jpgAcura vehicles are known for their expressive styling, high-performance, and innovative engineering, but they offer so much more. The Acura brand’s premium status and ingenuity extends through their advanced safety features, ensuring your comfort and safety through the intelligent AcuraWatch. 

The innovative AcuraWatch safety systems are engineered to increase awareness, support the driver, and lower the risk of impact. AcuraWatch equips your vehicle with a variety of advanced safety and driver assist technologies, some even coming standard on your Acura model.

  • Blind Spot Information (BSI)

This blind spot safety feature helps drivers detect other vehicles approaching from behind in adjacent lanes. This feature is designed to trigger a warning when changing lanes in your Acura, providing an enhanced view of your blind spot.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

This strategic, lane-centering technology helps keep your Acura safely in its detected lane. Whether you're enjoying the mildly curved roads of the Blue Ridge Parkway or driving down a straightaway on the interstate, your Acura will gently provide assistance with a slight tug of your steering wheel, keeping you in the center of your lane.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow 

With this feature, your Acura will automatically adjust its speed to maintain proper following distance and decelerate or accelerate to maintain maximum appropriate speed.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) 

This feature monitors obstacles using sensors on the front of your Acura vehicle. This safety system operates in three stages to lessen danger and apply your brakes to avoid a collision.

  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW)  

These safety features work together to help you safely maintain your lane while traveling at higher speeds. The Road Departure Mitigation feature works when driving 45 to 90 mph during specific conditions. Lane Departure Warnings are triggered to alert the driver through audio and vibration cues to help you maintain your lane. 

  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)  

This feature monitors the gap between your vehicle and the object or car in front you. If the sensors detect you are closing in on the object too quickly, the system uses audible and visual warnings to alert you as the driver to slow down.

  • Rear Traffic Monitor

This feature helps drivers detect traffic behind their vehicle when in reverse. If you’re reversing and another vehicle is approaching to cross behind your vehicle, your Acura will issue visual and audible warnings on your rear-view camera.
