  • 2018 Acura TLX Safety banner

    Vehicle safety is an extremely important aspect of every vehicle’s composition. The features that fall under this category play a crucial role in keeping passengers safe from harm and reducing the potential of accidents occurring. Having a comprehensive safety suite is not only important, but absolutely necessary, which is why the 2018 Acura TLX makes sure to cover all of its bases for every trim level. Check out some of the amazing safety and security components keeping the TLX so safe below.

Active Safety Features


One of the important areas of vehicle safety comes in the form of active safety features. These features are enabled every time you stick the key into the ignition and work to protect you from danger. A few of the features in this department include:

  • Front and rear parking sensors – These sensors make it easier to get in and out of parking spaces without damaging your car or others by beeping if you get too close to another vehicle.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist – In conjunction with traction control and motion adaptive steering, the VSA system helps to keep the vehicle stable and the driver in control of the steering.
  • Hill Start Assist – Hill start assist helps drivers go up slopes easier by distributing traction where it’s needed most.

Passive Safety Features

On the other side of things are passive safety features. These features play an important but less overt role than active safety features, since they only kick into gear when absolutely necessary. Some of these kinds of features are as follows:


2018 Acura TLX ACE Body Structure

  • Airbags – The TLX is equipped with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, side curtain airbags, and a driver’s knee airbag to ensure that passengers are adequately protected in the event of a collision.
  • Next-generation ACE body structure – In an effort to keep passengers safer, this new body structure is built to evenly distribute the force of a frontal crash so the impact is better absorbed, in turn keeping occupants a bit safer.
2018 Acura TLX in rain

  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers – This extremely innovative wiper system works to detect rain and automatically turn on and off the wipers and headlights as needed.
  • Theft-deterrent system – Alongside an electric immobilizer, this system works to lower the threat of theft by loudly alerting others that the vehicle is being improperly entered and locking the vehicle from movement.

Driver-Assist Features

Finally, there are safety features that work to actively keep the driver informed of what’s around them and allow them to take better control over vehicle safety with interactive assistance features. Several of these features are listed below:


  • Lane Keeping Assist System – If your vehicle ever begins drifting out of its designated lane, this system will kick into action and adjust steering to move you back to the center of the lane.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System – When the vehicle detects certain lane markers are being crossed and is about to leave the road, this system works to alert the driver and assist the steering of the vehicle back into its designated lane.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System – This system detects if the vehicle is approaching another vehicle from behind too quickly; it warns the driver with a head-up warning and begins to apply braking to help avoid a collision. If a collision seems unavoidable, the system will apply much stronger braking force.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor – To make backing out of parking spots or areas with blind spots easier, this system uses sensors to detect if there are vehicles or objects approaching from the sides of the vehicle.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System – By providing location and pressure indicators along with tire fill assist, this system ensures that you will be able to stay on top of tire maintenance.
