Braking and Stability

Even with the peace of mind that comes with intelligent safety technology, you would rather avoid an accident than put emergency systems to the test. Fortunately, the 2016 Acura RDX is equipped with several braking and stability technologies that will help you maintain control and decrease your stopping distance when necessary to avoid exterior hazards. The foundation is the disc brakes on the RDX, which work in tandem with the electronic brake distribution system and brake assist system to deliver braking power to the wheels that need it most so that you maintain traction and control.

2016 RDX

In addition to intuitive braking, the 2016 Acura RDX is also equipped with vehicle stability assist, which uses exterior sensors to monitor road conditions as well as user input to detect oversteer, understeer, and the loss of traction. When working in tandem with the other systems, your vehicle will make adjustments, often without your involvement, which will avert disaster by applying torque and braking power to individual wheels to keep you on course. In the event that you are rapidly approaching another vehicle or hazard, the collision mitigation braking system will apply the brakes automatically in order to help avoid an accident. Other ways the included braking systems work to keep you in control include:

  • Detection of emergency braking in order to apply brakes more effectively
  • Redirection of braking power to each wheel while continuously monitoring traction and speed
  • Use of anti-lock braking to prevent the wheels from locking up when traction is needed while still utilizing the maximum stopping power of the brakes
