Acura ILX Safety Features Earn the Trust of Families Across America

As a luxury sedan, the 2019 Acura ILX naturally attracts drivers with high-end technology and indulgent fittings, but, as noted by Digital Trends, the “features you don’t notice are the ones that could save your life”. Acura ILX safety features represent the cutting-edge of protection. Whether you’re changing lanes on the highway, taking tight turns, or struggling through Chicago traffic, the Acura ILX is always working to keep you and your passengers safe from harm.

Standard Driver Assistance Features

Safety technology has advanced leaps and bound over the last few years. The latest generation has embraced driver assistance features that enhance your awareness, warn you of danger, and act independently to avoid collisions. The 2019 Acura ILX equips a wide selection as standard across all trims:

  • Multi-View Rear Camera: Cycle between three modes (Normal, Top-down, and Wide) to see exactly what’s behind your vehicle without even having to turn your head.
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System: Scans the road ahead for potential collisions and lets you know when one becomes likely to help you avoid accidents.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): Even if you fail to react to the Forward Collision Warning, brakes will be applied automatically to prevent collisions or reduce their severity.
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System: A camera detects markings meant to indicate the side of the road. If you unintentionally drift off the road, corrective steering pressure will bring you back.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Your cruising speed is adjusted up and down to maintain a safe distance between your Acura ILX and the vehicle ahead.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System: If you are detecting leaving your chosen lane, an audio alert and message on the MID will let you know.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): If you don’t heed your Lane Departure Warning System, corrective steering pressure will bring you back to the center of your chosen lane.

Available Driver Assistance

For those who have trouble backing up or changing lanes, the Acura ILX can complement its generous range of standard features with a few optional extras.

  • Blind Spot Information System: An indicator appears on the appropriate side mirror when a vehicle is detected entering your blind-spot. Audible and visual warnings will start if you activate a turn signal in that direction, while the vehicle is still there.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor: Detects approaching vehicles from either side when you’re reversing out of a parking space or into a busy street.

Passive Safety

You’ll probably never need to rely on your passive features – they’re designed solely to help avoid injury in the unlikely event of a collision. That said, you’ll drive easier knowing they’re on your side.
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is one of your most important lines of defense. Made from a network of connected structural elements, the ACE body distributes crash energy away from the passenger compartment.
Further passive features include:

  • Advanced Front Airbags (SRS)
  • Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags
  • 3-Point Height-Adjustable Front Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System and Load Limiters
  • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) Child-Seat Mounting System

Active Safety

The Acura ILX fits all the expected active safety features as standard to keep you in full control at all times:

  • 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Brake Assist

You’ll also get a few features more advanced that you might expect from rival models:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Sensors determine if a tire’s pressure is significantly below the recommended level, so blowouts and periods of poor traction are far less likely.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®): Fitted with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering, VSA monitors vehicle speed, throttle position, individual wheel speeds, steering angle, lateral G-force, and yaw rate to detect and correct oversteer and understeer.

Advanced Technology Makes the Acura ILX One of the Safest Sedans in the Country
