Learn about the different Acura safety technologies that enabled Acura to earn top safety ratings for every model in its current line-up.
It’s no secret that Acura is deeply committed to driver and passenger safety. In fact, Acura is the first luxury brand awarded top safety award ratings across its entire model line. Each vehicle earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This is a monumental step forward in ensuring passenger safety, for Acura and all luxury brands. It proves that engineers can make all cars safer by dedicating design around safety technology and strategies.
Proud to Share Safety Technology with Drivers
At Acura Santa Barbara, we are proud to share Acura’s leading safety ratings with our customers. After all, each person that walks through our doors matters to us. Thanks to Acura’s innovative designs, we can be confident that each vehicle provides the safety drivers and passengers deserve. Not only does each model meet government standards, but many go beyond to serve passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers on the road.
Some of our favorite Acura safety technologies include:
Driver Assistance Technology – Thanks to AcuraWatch™ technology, drivers have a better idea of what is going on around them. From vehicle positioning on the road, to blind spot awareness, to pre-collision safety prevention technology, the driver has an added measure of assistance on the road.
Active Stabilization – This technology helps reduce the dangers of a wet or slippery road. Vehicle Stability Assist takes measures to reduce torque and apply the brakes as necessary to each wheel when the vehicle encounters loss of traction.
Innovative Body Design – When it comes to safety, the overall body design of the car plays a leading role. At Acura, each model is designed with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body construction to help reduce and safely disperse collision forces in the event of a front-impact crash.
Advanced Braking Systems – Whether you are creeping along in bumper to bumper traffic or need to come to an unexpected stop at cruising speed, the Collision Mitigation Braking System can alert drivers to obstacles ahead. The technology offers visual alerts and warning signals and can even brake for you if you do not respond in time.
This is just a small sampling of the many safety features that set Acura vehicles apart. To learn more about each technology or to try them out in person on a test drive, we invite drivers to visit us at Acura Santa Barbara.
