Self-Driving Tech in Acura Models


Chances are, you've seen or heard the hoopla surrounding self-driving cars and what they mean to technology and vehicles today. While you probably won’t be passing any vehicles near Hampton that are seemingly maneuvered by thin air anytime soon, you most likely have already utilized some of the technology inching in that direction. And, if not, you will certainly encounter some if you’re ready for a new vehicle.

There are a plethora of advanced features in new Acura models that help you maneuver your vehicle. They not only make driving easier but provide an added level of safety. Features include, but are not limited to:

Automatic Emergency Braking: automatically slam on the brakes when sensors detect an object in the path ahead

Traction Control: senses a slippery or unstable terrain and increases friction

Hill Descent Assist: controls your vehicle’s speed as you drive downhill

Back Up Camera: gives you a wide-angle view of everything behind your vehicle, usually on a touchscreen on your dashboard

Back Up Warning: alerts you if an object or vehicle is in your path when backing up

Rear Cross Traffic Alert: warns you if a moving vehicle enters your path as you are backing up

Automatic Parallel Parking: automatically steers your vehicle into a parking space
