AcuraWatch™ (formerly known as the AcuraWatch Plus Package) is a suite of driver-assist technologies and safety features designed to help prevent car accidents and increase driver awareness. Is AcuraWatch worth it for Sioux Falls car shoppers? Yes, but luckily you won’t have to make that tough decision. You can’t put a price on your family’s safety and that’s why AcuraWatch comes standard equipped on every new Acura vehicle. Join the staff here at Vern Eide Acura as we review the advanced safety features of the AcuraWatch suite.
Using the combination of a camera and radar waves, the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System is meant to reduce the stress of driving in traffic by detecting vehicles ahead and determining if a collision is imminent.
The Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS™)* alerts South Dakota drivers to potential collisions and can actually reduce the force of a collision if one becomes unavoidable.
Traditional cruise control has always been a useful tool on long highway trips, but it’s not very helpful during your daily commute on any South Dakota interstate or highway. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)* changes that, allowing you to set a desired speed while maintaining a time interval between you and the car detected ahead.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)* and Lane Departure Warning (LDW)* work together to help keep South Dakota drivers in their lane. LKAS will assist you with audible beeps and steering input if you should move from a detected lane without signaling.
Thanks to radar sensors in the rear bumper, Acura’s Blind Spot Information System will provide audible and visible alerts when South Dakota drivers signal to change lanes into an adjacent, occupied lane.
Using sensors located near the rear corners of your Acura, the Rear Cross Traffic Monitor* can detect approaching vehicles from either side while reversing out of a parking spot or onto a busy street.
To help South Dakota with their stop-and-go driving, Traffic Jam Assist (TJA)* can bring your Acura to a complete stop and accelerate again in traffic without any input from the driver, as well as steer the vehicle within certain constraints.
With the help of a windshield-mounted camera, Acura’s Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)* feature can detect South Dakota’s speed limit signs and display the posted speed limit on the driver information interface and available Head-Up Display.
While the core group of driver-assist features such as CMBS™, RDM, ACC, and LKAS are standard on all Acura SUVs and cars, package upgrades can add certain AcuraWatch™ technologies like the Blind Spot Information System and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, giving Sioux Falls drivers even more confidence behind the wheel. Let’s do a quick breakdown to see which safety technologies come with each Acura model.
An upgrade to the Premium Package not only adds the Blind Spot Information System and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor to your 2021 Acura ILX, but it also includes the On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) 2.0, Acura Premium Audio System, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, HD Radio®, and HomeLink®.
Making a move up to the Technology Package will give your 2021 Acura TLX the Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and Blind Spot Information System, as well as GPS-Linked Climate Control, Acura Navigation System with 3D View, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™ with Street and Freeway Conditions, Traffic Rerouting™, and the Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System.
If you choose the 2021 Acura RDX Technology Package, not only do you receive the Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and Blind Spot Information System, but you also get GPS-Linked Climate Control, Acura Navigation System with 3D View and Traffic Rerouting™, Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, and extra rear USB ports.
