The AcuraWatch safety system is a suite of technologies designed to keep you and your passengers safe and ensure that you have the most optimal Acura driving experience possible. In this overview, we’ll take a closer look at some of the key safety enhancements the AcuraWatch system brings to Naperville families, as well as three Acura models that offer this advanced technology. Read on to learn more about this revolutionary platform and how you can get behind the wheel of your very own AcuraWatch-enabled vehicle at Continental Acura of Naperville.

An Overview of the AcuraWatch Safety System

The AcuraWatch safety platform is available as an optional add-on to the Acura RDX, MDX, and ILX. We’ll explore those vehicles in greater depth in the next few sections, but in the meantime let’s take a closer look at how the system is designed to keep you, your passengers, and your possessions safe no matter what might be happening outside.

  • Sensing Technologies: Acura vehicles know what’s going on around them. This environmental awareness is a critical component of the AcuraWatch safety suite, and it’s a vital function for any vehicle in this day and age. Sensor technologies such as a rear view camera with guidelines and radar systems provide comprehensive safety that can detect changes in the surrounding environment.
  • Adaptive Systems: Technologies like adaptive cruise control, low-speed follow, and collision-mitigating braking systems provide a smart approach to keeping you safe on the road. These features rely on the AcuraWatch platform’s ability to identify issues on the road and use this information to make intelligent decisions that keep you safe on your journey.
  • Intelligent Driver Assistance: If not implemented properly, driver assistance features can oftentimes get in the way of the driver and ruin a great automotive experience. The AcuraWatch system’s driver-assistance technologies – particularly, lane keeping assist, rear cross traffic alert, and road departure mitigation – are all designed to provide seamless alerts and protection without getting in your way.
