2017 Acura MDX Active Safety Features

The 2017 Acura MDX has several systems in place to help keep you in control of your vehicle. This midsize is equipped with a four-wheel, anti-lock braking system that features Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering. This system monitors wheel speeds and steering angles. It will reduce torque and apply brake pressure to wheels to keep the vehicle stable.

The Acura MDX also features the Multi-Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines. This system adds a sense of ease and precision to backing in and out of tight spaces. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System helps keep you informed when your tires are low on air. This system will also send a dashboard notification when your tires drop in pressure.

Passive Safety Features

This midsize was designed to protect you and your passengers. It features the Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure. This structure is equipped with outer braces that can help transfer the force from the collision. As for the interior, the advanced airbag system measures the severity of impact and inflates the airbags to compensate for the force. The Acura MDX features dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, SmartVent™ front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag. 

Driver Assisting Technology

Acura MDX Safety

The 2017 Acura MDX comes standard with a few driver-assisting systems that are designed to add safety and security to your driving. The Lane-Keeping Assist and the Road Departure Mitigation System utilize cameras to identify the lines and edges of the road to help keep your vehicle on its intended path. They will send a warning to your dashboard along with an audible chime to allow you to take measures in getting back on track.

The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ uses a radar transmitter mounted in the grille to detect objects in your path. It will provide up to 80 percent of full braking power to help you avoid a collision, but coming to a complete stop requires driver intervention. The Adaptive Cruise Control system makes highway driving a lot easier. This system allows you to set a desired speed and distance from the vehicle ahead.
