The Safest Luxury Vehicles in Chicagoland

The Safest Luxury Vehicles in Chicagoland

Finding a vehicle that offers everything you desire gets easier every year, but that doesn’t mean that all luxury vehicles have been endowed with equal capabilities. In particular, it’s important to note that there remains a wide gulf between luxury vehicles when it comes to safety. Although manufacturers like Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac, and Audi all have compelling options in their lineups, only Acura’s models possess suites of safety features that are sure to satisfy. In fact, Acura was the first luxury manufacturer to have received 5-Star Overall NHTSA safety scores,* and it achieved this remarkable benchmark all the way back in 2009! This manufacturer retains its leg up over the competition to this day, and in many respects, the gap between Acura and other companies has widened. We’re not the only ones who want to celebrate what Acura has to offer. In a recent comparison put together by the experts at Kelley Blue Book, the Best Safety Rated Luxury Vehicles of 2018,** two of Acura’s vehicles received top honors in a competitive lineup of 17 different luxury vehicles. Find out just what makes Acura’s vehicles so exceptional by reading on!

Top-Tier Active, Passive, and Driver-Assist Safety Features

Technology is advancing faster than ever, and of course, Acura has found plenty of ways to put these recent developments to effective use. Each of this manufacturer’s vehicles comes equipped with active, passive, and driver-assist safety features that you won’t find in competing models! Below, we’ve highlighted some of Acura’s most exciting safety options.

2017 Acura TLX Braking

Collision Mitigation Braking System: The Collision Mitigation Braking System is an integral component in the celebrated AcuraWatch safety suite, which uses the power of artificial intelligence in order to make the roads safer for everyone. CMBS utilizes cameras, sensors, and radar in order to keep track of your vehicle’s location in relation to potential dangers. Upon detecting a potential collision, the CMBS gives the driver a visual warning, and, if necessary, even engages the brakes automatically.

Adaptive Cruise Control: AcuraWatch also includes adaptive cruise control technology, using many of the same tools that the CMBS relies on, but ACC can provide even greater utility. With ACC, you can simply select your preferred speed and ideal follow distance and let your Acura’s onboard computer take care of the rest.

2017 Acura TLX Exterior

Jewel Eye LED Headlights: Improving the driver’s visibility is a surefire way to increase their safety. To that end, Acura has outfitted many of their vehicles with Jewel Eye LED headlights, which combine fog lights, automatic-dimming technology, and ultra-bright LEDs.


2018 Acura RDX Rainy

Vehicle Stability Assist: No matter where your life takes you, you’ll be glad to have VSA on your side. This technology is able to engage each of your Acura’s wheels independently of the others, providing greater stability and security on sharp turns, long curves, and inhospitable terrain. What’s more, VSA automatically adjusts for over- and understeering, helping you remain on the straight and narrow.

2018 Acura RDX Alert

Blind Spot Information System: With Acura’s blind spot information system, you’ll enjoy immediate audiovisual alerts whenever a vehicle enters your blind spot. A small red indicator located on each of your side-view mirrors will light up when radar detects an oncoming automobile. If you activate your turn signal while this indicator is active, a beeping warning lets you know that you should stay in your lane.

2018 Acura RDX Structure

Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure: ACE body structure provides the necessary foundation for all of Acura’s high-tech safety features. Vehicles that have been designed with ACE possess a frame composed of ultra-rigid and collapsible materials that absorb the energy from collisions and provide greater protection to those seated in the cabin.

Acura’s Lineup Has Something for Everyone!

Drivers won’t have to settle for a boring or lackluster vehicle in order to get the safety features that they most desire. The vehicles in Acura’s exceptionally well-rounded lineup all come equipped with tons of safety features, and what’s more, most have received a safety rating that should give you even more confidence in your choice!

The 2017 ILX is priced very affordably in comparison to other luxury sedans, but contrary to what one might expect, it still has plenty of advantages over its rivals. Its list of standard safety features includes a multi-view rear camera, Next Generation ACE, and LED daytime running lights. The ILX’s AcuraWatch Plus and Premium packages both massively expand its suite safety features.

2017 Acura ILX White

The new 2018 TLX is only slightly more expensive than the ILX, but here, AcuraWatch safety features come standard right from the start. What’s more, a blind spot information system and a rear cross traffic monitor are both standard with the ILX’s A-SPEC upgrade, a package that gives this luxury sedan a truly unique look and feel.

2018 Acura TLX Grey

The 2017 Acura RLX, a large luxury car brings to the road powerful features like Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive that make it safer—and more fun to drive—than most competitors. AcuraWatch features and a blind spot information system come standard, and by upgrading with the Technology Package, you’ll also receive a surround-view camera system.

2017 Acura RLX Red

This Acura SUV offers five different reasonably priced packages, offering something for everyone. By equipping the AcuraWatch Plus Package and the Technology Package on your 2018 RDX, you’ll receive a multi-view rear camera with dynamic guidelines and a rear cross traffic monitor.

2018 Acura RDX Black

Acura’s other midsize luxury SUV is no less compelling. Everything from adaptive cruise control to Next Generation ACE come standard right in its baseline trim, and when drivers upgrade with the 2017 Acura MDX’s Advance Package, they’ll receive a surround-view camera system, front and rear parking sensors, and a CMBS heads-up warning.

2017 Acura MDX Red

The 2017 NSX is a track-ready supercar that has plenty of safety features that you can depend on. Standard Sport Hybrid Super Handling AWD gives the NSX driver unparalleled control, and with additional safety features like vehicle stability assist, LED daytime running lights, and corner and backup sensors, you’ll enjoy protection from all angles.
