Like every Acura vehicle, the ILX benefits from a wide range of advanced safety features, including Hill Start Assist, which helps to prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards when on an incline. If you switch from the brake pedal to the accelerator while stopped on a hill, the system activates and halts the vehicle.
See and be seen. Producing an intensely brilliant beam of focused light, HID headlights enhance your ability to identify what’s ahead. And they’ll not only light up the road, their striking appearance will turn heads.
*Available with the Premium and Technology packages and Dynamic.
VSA with Traction Control automatically detects and corrects understeer or oversteer situations, sometimes before you’re aware there’s a problem. The system intuitively analyzes conditions and reduces throttle and/or applies braking to individual wheels. Should a loss of traction occur on a slippery surface, Traction Control will help ensure you get underway safely.
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE) body structure utilizes a high-tensile, high-efficiency steel body structure to provide enhanced protection from a multi-directional collision. ACE reduces the force of a frontal impact by absorbing energy over a large area and dispersing it away from you and other occupants of the cabin. ACE is also designed to help reduce occupant injuries caused by misalignment in collisions between vehicles of different sizes.
The 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps you maintain steering control when braking hard on wet, slippery or loose surfaces, while Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist balances braking forces at each wheel to help compensate for cargo and passenger weight distribution inside the cabin.
Significant safety is achieved with multiple airbags designed to help protect all occupants inside the cabin. Depending on the point and force of impact, the ILX will deploy dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS) that activate at one of two rates depending on the severity of the impact; front side airbags with the innovative passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) that will not release if the system detects a child or small-sized passenger; and side curtain airbags with a state-of-the-art rollover sensor.
