In order to create the most well-rounded lineup of vehicles on the road, Acura continues to place an emphasis on safety year after year. All models are now equipped with a range of advanced safety features designed to help drivers in West Hartford both avoid and withstand collisions. And thanks to Acura’s considerable commitment to safety, the entire lineup has been lauded by the NHTSA.* Learn about some of the Acura safety awards and features before exploring any model in person at Acura of Avon in Canton, CT.

Acura Safety Features

These are only some of the next-generation protections you can find across the current lineup of Acura cars and crossovers:

  • Collision Mitigation – Sophisticated sensors detect when you are in danger of rear-ending another vehicle and then provide a sharp warning. If you do not react in time the vehicle automatically applies the brakes to stop you sooner.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control – When you have cruise control activated and the vehicle in front of you slows down, your speed is automatically reduced to maintain a safe distance.
  • Lane Keep Assist – If your vehicle begins to drift into the lane on either side of the vehicle, a warning will sound. If the vehicle continues to drift, the steering is automatically corrected to keep you in the correct lane.
  • Jewel Eye LED Headlights – These unique headlights design combines LED lighting with foglights and auto-dimming capabilities to provide forward lighting that is both brighter and more dynamic.
  • Blind Spot Assist – If a vehicle is present in your blind spot, an indicator appears in your side view mirror. And if you indicate you want to turn into that lane of traffic an auditory warning sounds.

Acura has achieved something that not many other automakers in the industry can claim. Every vehicle in the current lineup has been awarded a five-star overall safety rating by the NHTSA, which means no matter what model you’re driving, you’ll be able to take on your travels with confidence.*
