Acura Sedans Sweep Highest National Safety Ratings
Every 2016 Acura sedan has earned the best safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Santa Barbara, CA, August, 2015 – Acura is proud to announce that they have earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on every vehicle in their luxury sedan line-up. This is an important achievement for the premium brand because they value driver and passenger safety so highly. The 5-Star rating is the highest possible from the NHTSA in their New Car Assessment Program and strongly validates Acura’s ongoing commitment to vehicle safety.
“We are pleased to share this achievement with our customers,” says Acura Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Scott Westbrook. “We want our drivers to feel great knowing that they not only get the best driving performance, comfort, and luxury design with an Acura, but they receive exceptional safety performance as well.”
The 2016 Acura ILX was the latest Acura sedan to earn the 5-Star NHTSA rating. The ILX features many important safety technologies including AcuraWatch™ – a suite of safety and driver-assist programs including Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Road Departure Mitigation, and a plethora of sensing systems including the multi-view rear camera with Dynamic Guidelines, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keeping Assist. Each 2016 Acura sedan was also specifically engineered to protect occupants in the event of a collision thanks to innovative structure design. For example, the Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE) design channels frontal crash energy to the upper and lower structural elements to protect occupants sitting in the middle region.
Acura Santa Barbara invites drivers to stop in and learn about the innovative safety technology now available in each Acura model. Our team values your safety and is thrilled to offer a product that is meeting and setting the highest standards of safety excellence in the industry.
