AcuraWatch Safety and Driver-Assisting Technology

Safety is one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a new vehicle. You want to know that the equipped safety features will be enough to protect you and your family.

Acura offers the AcuraWatch package, which is loaded with a variety of safety features and driver-assisting technology that will make you and your passengers' safety the highest priority.

To help our drivers in the Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, and Aliso Viejo area, we're going to look closely at this package to let you know what it features and how it can help increase your vehicle's safety.

AcuraWatch Package

This available package with any Acura model offers a variety of safety features with driver-assisting technology. The Adaptive Cruise Control helps you during long trips. It uses radar sensors located behind the grille to measure the distance and speed of the vehicle in front of you. This system can automatically adjust your speed to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of it.

Another driver-assisting technology is the Road Departure Mitigation. This system uses a mounted camera between your rearview mirror and windshield. If you stray into the next lane without activating your turn signal, this system will notify you and activate slight braking so you don't drift further into the lane.

The Blind Spot Warning uses cameras mounted on the exterior of your vehicle focused on your blind spots. They're positioned in a way to see what's next to and behind your vehicle. This system will provide an audible warning if a vehicle is approaching your blind spot when you're anticipating a turn or a lane change.

Collision Warning

Even though these vehicles are outfitted with airbag systems, you won't have to worry with the feature designed to help you prevent a collision. The Collision Mitigation Braking System uses radar to sense the distance between your vehicle and the object ahead. It can sense if a crash is imminent and sends a visual warning reminding you to brake. It also tightens your seat belt to get your attention.

Although this system tries to get you to react, it will also apply strong brake pressure while tightening both the driver and passenger seatbelts. This system may give you time to act quickly to prevent a crash.

Rearview Camera and Alerts

Acura models with the AcuraWatch package feature the Multiview Rear Camera with guidelines. The normal view helps you when you're backing in and out of a spot, but the wide view can help you get a better sense of the approaching traffic. This camera also features a top down view, which not only makes parallel parking easier, but you can also use it when hooking up a trailer hitch.

The Rear-Cross Traffic Alert system helps when your rear camera view is limited. This sensor will notify you with an audible warning if an object is in or is passing your rear path. It gives you a heads up to brake before backing up.
