2017 Acura NSX Safety Features
Passive Safety Features
While active safety features work to help a driver avoid an accident, these 2017 Acura NSX safety features are waiting to be put to use, helping protect driver and passenger in the event of a collision.
- Airbags: Single-stage driver and dual-stage front passenger airbags feature multiple thresholds to deploy with just the right amount of force and are accompanied by front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor.
- 3-Point Seat Belts: Each of the NSX seats features a three-point seat belt to safely secure its occupant during a collision. Automatic tensioning ensures the passenger is held securely in the seat while the seat belt reminder ensures you don’t take off without everyone buckled up.
- Multi-Material Space Frame: Built to be simultaneously light and durable, the frame of the NSX is state of the art and uses the latest technologies in construction, with a 3D bent and quenched A-pillar structure made of ultra-high-strength steel (the world’s first application of this technique for improved rigidity and solidity of performance and during collisions).
Driver Assist Features
We know that drivers of cars like the NSX prefer to keep full control of their vehicles, and that’s why the 2017 Acura NSX safety features only include a few driver assist safety technologies.
- Cruise Control: Give your feet and the twin turbocharged V6 of the NSX a break with the standard cruise control system. Set the speed for highway driving to enjoy the ride.
- Corner and Backup Sensors: This available safety feature helps keep your NSX looking pristine, using radar sensors to alert you to potential accidents while backing up.
- Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD): This Acura-exclusive all-wheel drive system delivers traction where it’s needed, when it’s needed. While it lets the NSX keep a tight line through a curve, it also makes it easier for a driver to retain control of the vehicle on slick or uneven pavement and is a key example of Acura engineering addressing multiple concerns (safety and performance) with one feature.
