Enjoy Luxury at an Affordable Price with the 2017 Acura RDX

2017-03-10T11:21:50+00:00March 10th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles, Safety, Technology|

The Acura RDX is for drivers who value comfort, safety, and technology, but still want a luxurious driving experience.

The Acura RDX is sort of the little brother option to the Acura MDX. It is a compact luxury crossover SUV that is simple, but elegant from the inside out. The Tampa Bay Times claimed that, “Acura may have found its aesthetic sweet spot” with the RDX. The 2016 model of the RDX one-ups its predecessors in every aspect by sporting a simple, sexy style while bringing more content, more safety features, a modest power increase, and 1-mpg rise in EPA highway fuel economy to an impressive 28-mpg with all-wheel drive. As an authorized Acura dealer, Acura Santa Barbara is excited to offer this level of luxury at an affordable price. So come visit Acura Santa Barbara to learn more about our different Acura RDX models and other luxury Acura models.

The Acura RDX is Safe, Smooth, and Stylish

One thing that Acura drivers can always count on is that the designers of their vehicle had safety in mind as a top priority. The Acura RDX is another example of this. Some safety features available for the luxury crossover are:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist – This feature applies brakes to each individual tire as needed to reduce the risk of over or understeering or loss of traction in wet or unstable conditions.
  • Blind Spot Information System – This feature can detect vehicle’s in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 mph. If the driver signals that he/she is changing to that lane, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors with Multi-View Rear Camera – This feature alerts the driver when they are nearing an object while parking with a series of beeps that becomes more rapid as the driver gets closer. The multi-view rear camera assists the driver in determining the width and depth of parking spots, giving a clear view as to whether there are any obstacles.

In addition to safety, the Acura RDX delivers a smooth driving experience on just about any driving surface, eliminating the annoyance of unkempt pavement. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine pairs well with the six-speed automatic transmission that feels nicely attuned to the engine’s powerband. The result is a consistent and uninterrupted luxurious ride. Visit our knowledgeable Acura-trained sales experts at Acura Santa Barbara to learn more about the Acura RDX and its individuality as an affordable luxury crossover SUV.

Smart Cars Continue to Excel in Safety and Efficiency

2017-03-03T10:15:37+00:00March 3rd, 2017|New Vehicles, Safety, smart|

Smart Cars have built a reputation around their superiority in safety and efficiency, and the brand continues on the path of innovation.

As a brand, Smart was designed to introduce a new kind of vehicle to the automotive industry. The brand creates vehicles that are small, fuel-efficient, environmentally responsible, and safe—essentially the perfect vehicle for in-city drivers. Smart cars have been championing optimized fuel efficiency and alternative fuel options for years without forcing drivers to sacrifice safety or sport. With top performance ratings, an enjoyable driving experience, and top safety ratings, Smart car drivers enjoy the best of all worlds.

Recognized for Setting High Safety Standard

The Smart brand employs the brilliant ingenuity of Mercedes-Benz engineers to pave the path for innovation in safety features. Small, efficient, and convenient, Smart cars are the ultimate urban driver. However, due to their small size many drivers have doubts about the safety of these vehicles. With much larger vehicles on the road it seems that it would only make sense that Smart cars should be deemed unsafe in the event of a crash. But, in reality, this is simply not true. In fact, Smart cars are some of the safest vehicles you can find on the road. For example, the 2016 Smart ForTwo was rewarded with the highest possible safety rating—five stars—by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) due to the car’s steel racecar-style frame and liberal use of high-tech front and side airbags.

Though they are roughly half the size of a traditional vehicle, Smart cars are filled with unique safety features like the Tridion steel safety shell. Similar to a racecar roll cage, the Tridion steel safety shell encloses the interior of the car in a high-strength steel cage that creates a protective shell around the occupants keeping them safe in the event of a crash. Every Smart car is also equipped with Smart’s Electric Stability Program (ESP) that has the ability to detect conditions and situations that might cause the driver to lose control, and assists by adjusting the engine and brakes to enhance handling.

Size and Fuel-Efficiency

Some of the most attractive features of Smart cars are their size and fuel-efficiency. Smaller cars are very convenient for urban drivers, and measuring at just over eight feet long and less than five feet wide, there are few cars, if any, smaller than the 2016 Smart ForTwo. In addition, the Smart ForTwo boasts an impressive 32 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Our team at smart center Santa Barbara invites drivers to stop by and experience the performance and safety features for themselves.

Four Reasons You Need Gap Insurance

2016-10-03T12:20:54+00:00October 3rd, 2016|Insurance, Maintenance, Safety, service, Warranties|

Gap insurance helps protect drivers in case of an accident or collision when they owe more on a car than the vehicle is actually worth.

If you are purchasing a new car and want to roll in any negative equity from your trade-in vehicle, it is important to consider gap insurance. What is it? What does it cover? Gap insurance is also known as gap protection and it covers the difference between what you owe on a car and what the car is worth. This discrepancy can occur in a number of situations and by having gap insurance you can prevent a lot of frustration, hassle, and expense if you do happen to get into an accident. Depending on your circumstances, it can be a very important protection.

Understanding Gap Insurance?

Gap insurance can be a mysterious concept to many drivers, but it is really very simple. Basically, gap insurance protects car owners in case something happens to a car but the owner owes more money on the car loan than the vehicle is worth. In this case, if a car is totaled, the owner will receive the value of the car from the insurance company and then receives additional funds for any amount they own in excess of the value of the car.

4 Reasons You Need Gap Insurance

Gap insurance is something important to consider during the purchase of a car if you are financing a loan and there is a chance that at some point during your loan you will owe more money than the car is worth. When this occurs it is called “negative equity”. There can be many different causes for a situation like this which include:

  • Car value depreciation. Cars lose their value over time and some vehicles may decrease in value faster than others. It is important to understand what the value of your car may be in the first few years following your purchase.
  • Financing more than the value of the car. Sometimes car buyers will roll negative equity from a former car into the loan for a new car. While this may make sense financially for the buyer, it still can put them at risk without gap insurance.
  • Low or no down payment. The lower your down payment is, the more you will have to finance in a loan. If the amount you finance is higher than the value of the car at any time during the loan period, you are at risk without gap insurance.
  • Extended Loans. These days, there are many options for buyers regarding loan terms. Drivers may be approved for a loan on a 48-month, 60-month, and even 72-month basis. If a buyer opts for a longer loan term, they are paying off a lower portion of their debt each year and may at some point owe more than the vehicle is worth.

When customers come to purchase a new or pre-owned vehicle at Santa Barbara Auto Group, we ensure they have the opportunity to sit down with a finance representative to discuss their loan and insurance options. Our finance representatives will walk buyers through their options, letting drivers make a more educated choice about their purchase. Drivers can learn more about gap insurance options from a qualified finance representative with Santa Barbara Auto Group.

Acura Safety Technologies across Each Model Line Keep Drivers Safe

2016-08-19T06:19:50+00:00August 19th, 2016|Acura, Safety|

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.

Smart Cars Deliver Uncompromising Safety

2016-07-14T10:28:23+00:00July 14th, 2016|Safety, smart|

Safety technology in the smart car continues to evolve as it remains a leader in efficiency and safety on the road.

Smart cars have been championing optimized fuel efficiency and alternative fuel options for years. Smart drivers appreciate both factors and know that they don’t have to sacrifice safety or sport when selecting a more fuel efficient vehicle. Smart drivers have the benefit of knowing they can enjoy the best of everything including top performance ratings and a fun driving experience, in addition to top safety ratings.

Exemplary Safety Standards

Smart cars are engineered by the innovative team at Mercedes-Benz to pioneer safety features in new and better ways. Small, efficient, and convenient, smart cars offer unique benefits paired with reliable safety engineering. Smart cars are an ideal vehicle for urban driving thanks to their easy maneuverability and small size. Though they are tiny, smart cars are filled with safety features such as the patented tridoion safety cell. Similar to a racecar roll cage, the safety cell is made with high-strength steel tridion and creates protective shell around the occupants. When in a collision, the safety cell evenly distributes crash energy to minimize damage and danger. Additionally, a total of eight full-size airbags are equipped throughout the inside of the cabin to further protect the occupants in the event of a crash.

Another unique safety technology built into every smart car is the smart Electronic Stability Program (smart ESP). This program is built to recognize situations that may cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle and instead adjusts the engine and brakes to optimize handling, keeping the driver in control and out of harm’s way.   Should drivers find the need to brake suddenly, the smart Anti-Lock Braking System (smart ABS) prevents wheels from locking while braking, keeping drivers safely in control.

Additional Crash Safety Features

In addition to these features, smart cars also offer multiple crash management features that provide maximum protection in the event of a collision. For example, seat belt tensioners, belt force limiters, and a collapsible steering column prepare the cabin and passengers while crash management system reduces risk and alerts others by shutting off the engine, unlocking the doors, and turning on the hazard lights.

Our team at smart center Santa Barbara invites drivers to stop by and experience the performance and safety standards for themselves on a test drive. Additionally, now is the time to take advantage of summer savings and purchase incentives available for a limited time only.

Audi A6 Earns Improved Rating as a Top Safety Pick+ from IIHS

2016-04-07T13:50:44+00:00April 7th, 2016|Audi, Safety|

Audi Santa Barbara shares the good news that the Audi A6 has earned designation as a Top Safety Pick+ vehicle for 2016.

Santa Barbara, CA – The new 2016 Audi A6 was recently tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and earned the designation as a Top Safety Pick+ thanks to its excellent performance in each of the crashworthiness tests. The IIHS completes testing on new vehicles to determine their safety rating and to provide consumers with insight into the safety standards of each vehicle. The results of the tests are published publicly so consumers can review and compare safety performance across multiple brands and models. The Audi A6 Top Safety Pick+ designation came after improved performance in the small overlap test and applies to all models built after January 2016.

“Our customers will be pleased to know that Audi takes the results of these tests seriously and are dedicated to continuous improvement in both safety and performance aspects,” shares Audi Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Bill Fogg.

Vehicles that earn a “good” rating in each of the different crash test categories qualify as a Top Safety Pick, and to earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating, they must earn a “good” rating in each category and also have an available front crash prevention system that earns a superior rating. The individual crash categories include: small overlap protection, moderate overlap front and side test, roof strength testing, and head restraint evaluations.

Drivers who are interested in learning more about the safety and performance technology of the 2016 Audi A6 are invited to contact Audi Santa Barbara. Current inventory information can be accessed online or can be viewed in person at the dealership.
