Acura Earns Top IIHS Safety Ratings on Every Vehicle in 2015
Drivers enjoy industry-leading safety features in each model of the 2016 Acura line-up.
(Santa Barbara, CA) – Acura has now earned the designation of 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ across its entire model line. The accomplishment came as a result of the 2016 ILX and RDX earning TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS this fall. Acura is the first luxury brand to earn a top safety rating from the IIHS for every model and is proud to have achieved such an important feat.
“Acura is dedicated to providing innovative safety technology with every vehicle and we are so proud to offer a full line-up of models that provide drivers the highest safety standards,” shares Acura Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Scott Westbrook.
Both the 2016 ILX and the 2016 RDX received considerable enhancements for 2016 including the most advanced safety features to date. Both offer the new suite of safety and driver assisted technologies known as AcuraWatch™. These systems provide drivers with information they need to be more aware of their surroundings to avoid dangerous situations or mitigate the severity of a collision. The system includes features such as:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Departure Warning
In addition to these technologies, 2016 Acura vehicles also feature enhanced crash-safety designs thanks to the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ technology implemented in each model. This design helps to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle to better protect the driver and occupants in the event of a collision.
Drivers can learn more about the innovative safety technologies featured in each 2016 Acura model by visiting Acura Santa Barbara or viewing the latest information online.
