AcuraWatch Safety Features at West Side Acura

The rise of automotive technology has accelerated in the past decade with manufacturers offering a slew of drivers assist features. With over 30 years of engineering experience in the automotive sector, Acura takes pride in producing vehicles that fulfill the needs and wants of our dedicated customers in St. Albert, Leduc, and surrounding areas of Alberta. As technology has progressed in those 30 plus years, Acura has remained at the forefront of technological advancements. AcuraWatch is a network of technologies that are engineered to work in harmony with each other to gather terabytes of information, process it, and provide the driver with warnings when necessary.

AcuraWatch features technologies like AdaptiveCruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, which offers the evolution of cruise control. The system utilizes advanced radar systems positioned behind the front grille to detect vehicles in front. The system allows the driver to set a certain speed and distance; the vehicle will stay at that speed until it approaches another vehicle traveling at a slower speed. It will proceed to follow that vehicle at the preset distance until either the driver passes or the other vehicle moves over. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) aid the driver in avoiding any type of rear-end collision. It utilizes the same radar system as ACC and calculates the distance of the vehicle in front. If a sudden decrease in speed is detected, the seatbelt is tightened, and brakes are applied accordingly.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane KeepingAssist System (LKAS), and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) are all utilized to help keep the vehicle in the lane it intended. If the driver does not engage the indicator, and the vehicle begins to drift over the lane marker, an audible and visual alert will be given. If the vehicle continues on its path, the system will gradually pull it back into its lane. These three systems work together to keep you safe and in your lane. Lastly, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Blind-Spot Information (BSI), and a Multiview Rear Camera round out the suite of fantastic assistance features.

At West Side Acura, we are proud to offer all these great drivers assistance technologies on our complete line-up. Not only do we provide a full inventory of new Acura's you can find a great selection of pre-owned vehicles, a state of the art service centre with online appointment booking, a fully stock parts centre.
