Other Performance Features

Drivers not only get access to two potent engine options; the Acura is also equipped with next-generation handling equipment to ensure a smooth, comfortable ride. The vehicle stability assist (VSA) system monitors the vehicle’s speed, steering angle, lateral G-forces, and throttle position, and automatically reduces the engine’s torque or increases braking power to individual wheels to reduce the potential for slipping. The four-wheel antilock braking system is standard and prevents wheels from locking up or overheating during emergency stopping, this gives drivers greater control during sudden stops and can help to prevent the car from sliding during sudden maneuvers. Other features like Automatic Break Hold and Hill Start Assist help to keep the car from rolling backward during takeoff, allowing drivers to avoid fender benders in tight city parking areas. Of course, drivers can also choose from a suite of advanced systems such as adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow and collision mitigation braking for additional assistance in providing a safe and enjoyable ride.
