Acura MDX Driver Assistance Technology

Regardless of your chosen Acura MDX trim level, you’ll find cutting-edge driver assistance technology fitted as standard to warn you of danger, improve your on-road awareness, and even act independently to either avoid an accident or reduce its severity.

Available driver assistance features include:

  • Surround-View Camera System: Creates a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the Acura MDX and its surrounding area to help with low-speed maneuvering.
  • Blind Spot Information (BSI) System: Provides an icon in the appropriate side mirror when a vehicle enters your blind spot, plus a warning if you attempt to change lanes before it leaves.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor: Scans to left and right as you reverse to keep you aware of vehicles approaching from the side.

The AcuraWatch package includes:

  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System: Scans the area ahead and lets you know when a frontal collision becomes likely, giving you time to take corrective action.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): Fail to react to the FCW and braking force will be applied to reduce the force of a collision or avoid it entirely. Advance Package models add a Head-Up Warning (HUW) system.
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System: Monitors common road edge markers and provides corrective steering pressure if you start to cross them.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Brings your preset cruising speed up and down automatically to maintain a safe distance between your Acura MDX and the vehicle ahead.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System: Provides an alert when you start to leave your lane without signaling.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Provides corrective steering pressure if you fail to react to the LDW system.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: Turns high beams on and off automatically as other vehicles approach and pass at night.
