2020 Acura RDX

Defining AcuraWatch™?

AcuraWatch™ is an intelligent suite of driver-assisting technologies. It’s designed to act as a second pair of eyes, alerting you to hazards you might miss while driving.

We’re sure you’re eager to get your hands on this comprehensive suite, but you’re likely wondering what models have AcuraWatch™. Well, luckily for you, all Acura sedans and SUVs are offered standard with AcuraWatch™. This includes:

  • ILX
  • TLX
  • RLX
  • RDX
  • MDX

Thanks to this, no matter which Acura vehicle you choose, you’ll have a comprehensive safety suite looking out for your safety no matter where you go.

Features Found in AcuraWatch™

The Acura safety features found in AcuraWatch™ utilize intelligent technology like cameras and sensors to constantly monitor a range around your sedan or SUV. That way, you’ll have a virtual protection bubble completely surrounding your Acura vehicle, helping you feel safe and secure behind the wheel.
Since AcuraWatch™ consists of several Acura driver-assist technologies, here’s a review of what each one can do for you:


Collision Mitigation Braking System™

Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) uses a radar system and a high-resolution forward-facing camera to monitor the area ahead of your Acura vehicle. Should these intelligent systems detect a potential hazard, like another vehicle or a pedestrian, you’ll receive a visual alert.

In the event there’s no reaction to this visual alert, under certain circumstances the CMBS™ system can step in and provide automatic emergency braking to help avoid a collision or reduce the severity of impact. This is achieved by applying up to 80% of your full braking power.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC) acts similar to your regular cruise control. Simply set the desired speed you’d like to travel. However, unlike a regular cruise control system, the ACC with Low-Speed Follow makes it possible to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you thanks to these front-mounted sensors.
For example, if traffic ahead begins to slow down, the system will automatically slow down your car without adjusting the cruise control speed you’ve set. Then, once cars start moving again, ACC will bring your vehicle back up to your original speed.

Road Departure Mitigation System

This system uses a monocular camera to recognize roadways and solid lane lines. This camera will constantly monitor your position within your marked lane. If the Road Departure Mitigation System detects your Acura starting to drift over the road markings and heading toward the shoulder of the road, it will send visual and audible alerts.

If needed, it can sometimes provide automatic steering assist and brake assist to help you stay on the roadways.

Lane Keeping Assist System

The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) works in tandem with the Road Departure Mitigation System when you start to unintentionally drift from your lane.

Once again, using a camera, the LKAS will constantly monitor the marked lines of the lane in which you’re traveling—regardless if you’re traveling on a straight or mildly curved road. Using this front camera, the system can detect when you move out of your detected lane without using a turn signal.

If that’s the case, LKAS will slightly tug on the steering wheel, providing gentle steering assistance. That way, you can safety return to your lane and remain centered throughout the duration of your trip.

Other Driver-Assisting Technologies

If you can believe it, on top of the four Acura safety features we’ve already discussed, there are even more features found inside Acura models to help keep you safe. Two that go hand in hand are the often-times optional Blind Spot Information System and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor.

If you’re driving along and wish to change lanes, the Blind Spot Information System will warn you when a vehicle’s in your blind spot. This is possible by utilizing a series of rear- and side-mounted technology systems.

In the case that another vehicle is detected in your blind spot, you’ll notice an indicator on the appropriate side’s windshield pillar that will disappear once the coast is clear.

The Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, meanwhile, will warn you when a vehicle is approaching you from either side while your Acura vehicle is in Reverse. This feature is particularly helpful when you’re backing out of your driveway or a parking spot in that busy parking lot.

Thanks to these features, both your back and sides are covered!

Another helpful safety feature is the Surround-View Camera System. It comes with four exterior cameras that give you a 360-degree view of the space immediately around your car. These images are shown on the vehicle’s display screen.

When these cameras work together, you’ll have three different camera angles to choose from: front, left/right side, and rear. When these four separate cameras work together, you can get a complete sense of your surroundings thanks to the bird’s-eye view display.

You can toggle among each of these camera positions at any point to get a close-up view of the area around your vehicle.
