In this 2018 Acura ILX safety review, we'll go over all the features that'll give you peace of mind when driving around Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, and Aliso Viejo. Read through them below, and contact us at Norm Reeves Acura of Mission Viejo if you have any questions.

Active Acura ILX Safety Features

The Acura ILX comes with many safety features that actively work to help prevent accidents from occurring. These include:

  • LED daytime running lights
  • Anti-lock braking system
  • Electronic brake distribution
  • Brake assist

It also has Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering. This system will constantly monitor things like vehicle speed, throttle position, and steering angle. If oversteer or understeer is detected, VSA® will reduce engine torque and apply the brakes to each wheel to help stabilize the vehicle.

Passive Safety Features

Sometimes, the unexpected happens. If an accident were to occur, the 2018 ILX will help protect everyone on board. One way it'll do this is through the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.

The ACE™ design uses a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal energy more evenly throughout an automobile. Not only that, but it can also help disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash. This will help keep everyone involved in an accident safe.

Other passive safety features include dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags and side curtain airbags.

Driver-Assisting Technologies

The ILX offers many driver-assisting technologies, to help alert you to things you might miss while driving. Some of those features are...

  • Blind Spot Information System: If a vehicle is detected in your blind spot, an indicator will appear on the appropriate side mirror. If you put your turn signal on to switch lanes, the light will flash, and a warning beep will sound.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™: If you're getting too close to another car, you'll hear a beep and see a flashing Brake message on the Multi-Information Display. If you don't react in time, the system will automatically apply the brakes.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Select your cruising speed, along with a short, medium, long, or extra-long distance from the car in front of you. Even if traffic ahead begins to slow down, this system will maintain that preset distance.
