Driver-Assistive Technology

The 2018 MDX comes standard with AcuraWatch™ driver-assistive technology, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Lane Keeping Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

 The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ uses radar and a high-resolution forward camera to pick up on hazards in front of you like other vehicles or pedestrians. If there are obstacles ahead, a visual alert will be given if the system thinks a crash is possible, and the brakes will activate if you can't press them in time.

The Lane Keeping Assist feature uses a camera above the rearview mirror to keep the car centered. If the car begins to drift to a certain side, it will be guided back to the middle of the lane. Adaptive Cruise Control lets you set a speed and keep a desired distance from the car in front of you, meaning you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic.

Active Safety Features

The 2018 Acura MDX's anti-lock braking system features Vehicle Stability Assist™, which keeps your car steady when you turn too sharply or need extra traction when travel conditions are tough. If the system senses your vehicle is in trouble, the system will reduce torque and apply the brakes to individual wheels to stabilize your vehicle.

In the MDX's available Advance Package, the helpful Surround View Camera system can assist drivers while parking. Four well-positioned cameras work in harmony to point out any blind spots or potential obstacles while parking your car. A simple press of the Camera button when not in reverse provides a 360-degree view combined with a front view that lets you get that perfect spot in the garage.

Meanwhile, the wide-angle view can be used when pulling out of a tight spot when you can't see pedestrians and other cars.

Passive Safety Features

You can drive confidently in the 2018 Acura MDX thanks to state-of-the-art technology like Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body construction. The design uses a network of connected structural elements to evenly distribute crash energy, protecting you and any passengers in the event of an accident.

Advanced front airbags, SmartVent™ side airbags, side curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag come standard, too. The MDX received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, with top scores in front- and side-impact crash tests, and it's easy to see why with airbags that protect the driver and all passengers in an exceptional manner.
