2017 Acura NSX Safety Features

  • 2017 Acura NSX

    It’s a high-performance supercar, and that means great care was taken in engineering the 2017 Acura NSX safety features. Chicagoland drivers looking for one of the finest sports cars on the market will be happy to know that the NSX also has a long list of safety technologies—active, passive, and driver assist—to protect you.

Active Safety Features

These 2017 Acura NSX safety features make your vehicle more visible and include advanced detection technologies that sense when a loss of vehicle control is likely and offer assistance:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: If the NSX senses a loss of traction, this safety feature can adjust engine output and brake individual wheels to regain stability and keep you in control of the vehicle.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines: Back up with confidence using the multi-angle rearview camera of the NSX. Simply shift into reverse and the vehicle projects the view of the camera on the in-dash display screen.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: One under-inflated tire can throw off the balance of the entire vehicle. The tire pressure monitoring system alerts you when a tire is low on air and directs you to which tire to inspect and refill.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System: When braking hard, the anti-lock braking system engages to automatically pump the brakes to reduce the risk of wheel lock-up on icy or slick surfaces.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution: Brakes need to apply the right force to slow a car evenly, and if the weight distribution is uneven, each wheel could require a different amount of brake pressure. Electronic Brake Distribution ensures all of the wheels are receiving the right amount of braking force.
  • Brake Assist: If the NSX braking system senses hard braking, Brake Assist deploys the brakes with the maximum amount of force to assist you in slowing the vehicle down.
  • LED Daytime Running Lights: The LED headlights of the NSX carve through the night and illuminate the path ahead, but these daytime running lights are more for the visibility of others. Always on while driving, LED daytime running lights draw attention to the NSX and make it easier for other drivers to see and avoid.

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

Acura NSX Sport Mode
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.
