The 2017 Acura ILX is Built With Safety in Mind

2017 Acura ILX headlight

From the latest driver-assistance technology to painstakingly designed body structure, the 2017 Acura ILX is a frontrunner among drivers focused on safety. Despite the nimble output and sporty handling delivered by a 201 hp 2.4L four-cylinder engine, the new Acura ILX can still appeal to your practical nature by alerting you to danger, maintaining stability, and protecting you from harm in the unlikely event of a collision occurring.

Reassuring Crash Test Scores

Even the most sophisticated technology and the most experienced of drivers are never completely free from the risk of a collision. As such, the 2017 Acura ILX has been built around an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure.

Utilizing an interconnected framework, the ACE structure is able to distribute crash energy away from the passenger compartment to reduce the risk of injury if a collision occurs. This next-generation structure uses extra front braces to further distribute impact force, and it is technology like this that allowed the 2017 Acura ILX to score both a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating* from the NHTSA and 2017 Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS.

Peace of Mind as Standard

As a luxury sedan, the 2017 Acura ILX naturally brings a full selection of first-rate safety systems as standard. When you reverse, a Multi-View rear camera lets you cycle between separate viewing modes for a clear view of what’s behind you. As you drive, Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control & Motion Adaptive Steering ensures precise control across all conditions, and LED Daytime Running Lights assure clear visibility to other drivers.

When you come to a halt, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist will work to supply safer stopping power, and a standard security system will sound the horn, activate the lights, and disable the ignition in the event of a break-in. The 2017 Acura ILX never stops working to assure your safety and security.

Driver Assistance Technology

For those who frequently commute between Nashville and Knoxville, or for any other long-distance driver, the AcuraWatch driver-assistance suite is a big draw. Enhancing your awareness, providing a semi-autonomous drive, and acting independently to prevent a collision, its technologies include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Blind Spot Information System with Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
