Acura boost the safety features of the MDX by making the innovative AcuraWatch™ technology standard on all MDX models for 2017.

Acura is proud to offer a line-up of vehicles that are consistently rated well for safety and performance standards by third-party experts such as the International Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). To continue their legacy of top-performance safety features, Acura has decided to offer one of its newest safety features, AcuraWatch™, standard on all 2017 MDX models. This means drivers have the luxury of the latest safety technology no matter what model they select. This gives drivers an added sense of confidence on the road and is expected to boost sales again in the coming year.

Safety Comes Standard

Acura prides itself on offering class-leading technology in all of its vehicles and the MDX is no exception. Now standard with the AcuraWatch™ program, it offers driver assist technologies including:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist,
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Low Speed Follow (LSF)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)

The innovative programs are possible due to millimeter wave radar and monocular camera sensing technology that are incorporated into the vehicle to sense the location of the car within lane markings and the proximity of other vehicles on the road. When a dangerous situation is detected, the technology helps apply the brakes or warn the driver to mitigate the severity of a collision or accident. Furthermore, the latest version of Adaptive Cruise Control is combined with Low Speed Follow to allow the vehicle to maintain a preset speed and designated interval distance during highway driving conditions.

A History of Strong Approval

Because of these features and its exceptional performance and functionality, the MDX continues to be one of the most popular Acura models. In fact, it is the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time and is the leading model for Acura sales. In 2016 it was named as the “Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for the Money” by U.S. News and World Report.   The 2017 MDX was designed and produced in the United States and will be available at Acura Santa Barbara in 2016.

Drivers who are interested in learning more about the 2017 Acura MDX are encouraged to speak with a sales representative at Acura Santa Barbara who can offer details about the vehicle and share current pricing incentives or inventory specials.
