Acura MDX Driver Assistance Safety Features

Driver assistance features represent the next step forward for safety technology. They can improve your awareness of the road around you, provide alerts when you encounter a potentially dangerous situation, and even act independently to prevent an accident.

Available driver assistance features include:

  • Surround-View Camera System: Provides a 360-degree top-down view of the MDX and its surrounding area.
  • Blind Spot Information (BSI) System: Lets you know when a vehicle enters your blind spot and provides a warning should you attempt to change lanes before it leaves.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor: Scans to left and right to let you when vehicles are approaching from the side as you reverse.

The Acura MDX is happy to provide a wide selection of driver assistance features as standard, including:

  • Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines: Cycle between different viewing modes to see exactly where the Acura MDX is heading as you reverse.
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System: Scans ahead to check for any potential frontal collisions and provide a warning if one is detected.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): Fail to heed the FCW system and your brakes will be applied to prevent a crash or reduce its severity. Advance Package models add a Head-Up Warning (HUW).
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System: Scans markers set at the edge of the road and applies corrective steering pressure if you start to cross them.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Ideal for stop-start driving, the ACC system intelligently adjusts your cruising speed to maintain a safe gap from the vehicle just ahead.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System: Scans the road ahead to determine your chosen lane, then provides a warning if you start to leave it without first signaling.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Fail to heed the LDW system and corrective steering pressure will bring you back to your lane.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: Cycles high beams on and off as vehicles approach and pass after dark.
