Acura ILX Active Safety Features

The 2017 Acura ILX is outfitted with a 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD). EBD varies the amount of force that's applied to each of your wheels to correspond to the road conditions. This system also features Brake Assist, which is designed to help you come to a stop more quickly during an emergency situation.

Also equipped with the ABS system is the Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering. This feature monitors speed and can detect understeer. When understeer is detected, this system will reduce engine torque and apply brake pressure to each wheel. This is in an effort to help stabilize the vehicle.

The Acura ILX also features a Multi-View Rear Camera. This feature displays the exterior of your bumper to give you a clear view of what's behind you when you're in reverse. The higher trim levels offer this feature with Dynamic Guidelines, which project your intended path based on steering wheel position.

Acura ILX Passive Safety Features

The Acura ILX was designed with safety as a major consideration. The body of this vehicle is made up of the Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure. This special body structure helps distribute frontal crash energy and helps disperse it evenly throughout the vehicle in the event of a collision. It also helps absorb the force of impact in an effort to keep the passengers protected.

As for interior protection, the Acura ILX is outfitted with a fleet of airbags. The front passengers receive protection from the Dual-Stage Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags and the Front Side Airbags with Passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System. Both front and rear passengers get protection from the Side Current Airbags.

Driver-Assisting Safety

The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ works to help reduce a frontal impact. It utilizes a front camera to detect the objects in your path. It will send an audible chime if it senses that an impact is imminent.

The Blind Spot Information System uses side-mounted sensors to pick up on vehicles in your blind spot. This system is particularly effective when you're in the process of changing lanes. It will alert you if a vehicle is in your path to prevent you from changing lanes at that time. 

Now that you know all about the safety features of the 2017 Acura ILX, you're ready to determine if it has what it takes to keep you and your passengers safe.
