Acura Pushes the Technology Envelope

March 24th, 2013 by

You probably already know that Acura is one of the leading luxury vehicle brands on the market today, but were you aware that they are also on the forefront of automotive technology? Indeed, Acura is one of the few automakers that realizes that, in these times, many drivers associate the latest gadgets and tech integration with luxury just as much as – if not more than – they do leather upholstery and wood accents.

The 2014 Acura RLX is just the latest in the automaker’s innovations. Read on to see what they have in store for this already-famous sedan.

A New Class of Acura

While many drivers associate excessive costs with luxury vehicles, the RLX falls right in line with Acura’s goals of changing that perception. While the RLX is an upgrade to the popular RL sedan, it is also much more than that, including new technology that may find its way to other Acura models soon:

  • Automatic collision avoidance- That’s right, your vehicle will help you avoid accidents, protecting itself as well as everyone inside it. With options such as camera-based lane departure and collision warnings, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitors, the RLX works with you to keep everyone safe.
  • Jewel Eye Headlights- Tired of the poor visibility of old halogen headlights? Acura has the answer with their LED-based lights, providing more intensity at less power. The fact that they look pretty futuristic is just an added benefit.
  • LCD screen interfaces- With two LCD screens in the center dash, drivers can get up to date information on their vehicle’s performance in crisp, clear resolutions. The bottom screen also functions as an interface to control music, Bluetooth devices, and more.

These are just a few of the ways Acura is pushing auto technology further into the future, and you can rest assured that they aren’t about to slow down.
