2018 Acura TLX Safety Features

Monday, September 18th, 2017

CardinaleWay Acura of Las Vegas always has the safety of our customers first and foremost. That’s why our Acura location would love to introduce you to the safety features of the 2018 Acura TLX.

Street Smart

Acura’s goal is to create a society where there are no collisions and AcuraWatch has advanced safety and driver-assist technology to reach that goal. AcuraWatch is designed to improve awareness, assist with avoidance and help mitigate impact.

Blind Spot Information System

If the TLX detects another vehicle in the next lane riding along your blind spot, an indicator appears for you. If you attempt to signal in the direction of that vehicle, the indicator will flash and emit warning beeping sounds.

Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

Backing up is always a pain and this feature alleviates some of the pain by detecting approaching vehicles from either side while backing up. By communicating with the Multi-View Rear Camera, sound and arrow signals alert you of an oncoming vehicle.

Front & Rear Parking Sensors

Featured in the A-SPEC and Advanced packages, these innovative parking sensors detect when the vehicle is close to an object or surface with a series of beeps.

Vehicle Stability Assist

Wet conditions are always a nervous proposition when driving. Vehicle Stability Assist reduces the dangers of over and under steering and a loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as need and reducing engine power when necessary.

These safety features are one of the many reasons you should visit our Las Vegas dealership. Our staff will give you a tour of the 2018 Acura TLX as well as any of our Acura vehicles we have on site. We strive for excellent customer service and will answer any and all questions you have. Visit CardinaleWay Acura of Las Vegas today!

The 2017 Acura ILX Is The Car for You!

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Technology

The ILX is packed with intelligent features that help make the vehicle a more fun driving experience. An on demand multi-use display is available with an intuitive touch screen that combines all the controls you can ask for into a 7-inch screen. This allows you to control audio, climate and other programmed shortcuts at your fingertips with no issues at all. A keyless access system with pushbutton ignition lets you unlock the doors, enter the vehicle and start the engine while never taking the keys out of your pocket. It even remembers your preferred seat position and side mirror settings for you and another driver. Automatic climate control teams up with the GPS system to track the sun’s position relative to the vehicle while a solar sensor measures its intensity and changes system output to keep the set temperature for each of the system’s dual-zones. This allows both the driver and front passenger to enjoy the temperature that they want, rather than finding a happy medium.

Safety

Safety is personal with Acura, and it starts with the ACE body structure. ACE stands for Advanced Compatibility Engineering and this body construction is implemented into every Acura model to reduce and disperse forces in front crashes with any sized vehicle. A collision mitigation braking system is available to alert you to obstacles ahead, programmed to provide visual alerts when a crash is possible. It can even brake for you if you do not react in time. Vehicle stability assist comes into play during wet conditions and reduces the dangers of overcompensation while steering by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary.

How To Get Better Gas Mileage

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Gas mileage is one of the most well-known facets of your vehicle that can play an important part in keeping money in your wallet. The general public typically makes their decision on gas mileage in the vehicle they decide to purchase, but there are other ways to get better gas mileage on the vehicle you already own. Our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas dealership firstly recommends a regular maintenance schedule for your Acura vehicle.

The executive director of Car Care Council, Rich White, says, “Proactive vehicle maintenance is a motorist’s best money saving tip. Routine auto care not only helps save on fuel costs, but it helps identify small issues so they can be serviced before they become bigger and more costly to repair. With this information, you should make it a priority to make vehicle care a top priority in your life.”

Five Different Ways To Increase Gas Mileage

  1. Checking Tire Pressure: Keeping your Acura’s tires properly inflated improves its gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.
  2. Using the Right Motor Oil: Utilizing the correct grade of motor oil recommended by Acura can improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent.
  3. Replacing Clogged Air Filters: Air filters become dirty and clogged over time, reducing efficiency in fuel economy. Being proactive and replacing them improves fuel economy, performance and acceleration.
  4. Checking Engine Performance: Check if your engine is running efficiently by bringing your Acura in for a checkup at our dealership to perform a routine maintenance check. If there are fixes to be made, you can improve gas mileage by up to 4 percent.
  5. Fixing It: Fixing big maintenance issues is extremely important, such as a faulty oxygen sensor. You can improve gas mileage up to 40% in certain major issues being resolved!

Our Acura Service Technicians Are Here To Help!

Don’t hesitate to visit our website www.CardinaleWayAcura.com to schedule a maintenance service or visit our Acura location to get a quick check up on the spot. Our technicians are trained throughout the year so that they stay up to date on the latest Acura issues and trends.

CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas is proud to bring you the best Acura vehicles on the market today, including the 2018 TLX. This version of the TLX has been restyled and is loaded with great features for you to discover.

Interior

The interior starts with perforated Milano leather sport seats that deliver a bold, modern look. This durable material is designed for all-day comfort and lateral support. Ambient lighting is available to give a sophisticated finish to the cabin and gives the area a nice accent. A heated steering wheel is also available for those colder days where you need to keep your hands as warm as possible.

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Acura MDX 2

 

This is the second of two blogs highlighting the many safety features of #Acura’s MDX Crossover mid-size luxury SUV.  There are so many features and thus, so many reasons why the popularity of this vehicle continues to grow in its third generation.

 

How safe is the MDX Crossover?  In addition to the standard safety features (numerous airbags, stability and traction control and LED daytime running lights), other safety features are included in all MDX models.

 

The AcuraWatch Plus is a suite of active safety features:  adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist and lane departure warning. In order to prepare the MDX vehicle and its occupants for a frontal impact, the collision mitigation braking automatically applies the brakes as needed and tightens the seatbelts.

The Acura MDX Crossover, Part I: So Popular For So Many Reasons

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Acura MDX

 

#Acura’s mid-size luxury SUV, the MDX Crossover, is in its third generation and continues to grow in popularity.  There are so many features to the MDX Crossover that this is the first, of two parts, describing them. Understanding the MDX Crossover’s many features helps to understand the reasons it is one of Acura’s most popular models.

 

First, how does the MDX Crossover ride?  It rides on a light-truck chassis and features front and rear lightweight subframes. The MDX is powered by a 3.5L V6, it generates 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. It comes linked to an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission, using a push-button gear selection as well as steering-wheel-mounted paddles. Power is sent to the wheels by Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. Prospective buyers can save money if they choose front-wheel drive (by forgoing sending power to all four wheels).

 

Second, how is the MDX equipped?  Short answer, it is equipped extremely well.  The MDX has LED headlights (“Jewel Eye”), speed-sensitive windshield wipers, seating for seven passengers, a multi-view rear camera, power tailgate, leather seating with heated front seats and tri-zone climate control.  The MDX’s touchscreen, the On-Demand Multi-Use Display, incorporates information, entertainment and climate controls in one easy-to-navigate place. Lastly, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity with email and SMS functionality and an 8-speaker audio system with USB and iPod interface are all part of the standard features list.

Acura’s Driver Assistance Features on the RDX

Monday, August 1st, 2016

RDX Safety 

The safety features in the Acura RDX 2017 are unbeatable and very high tech. Let’s take a quick look at some of the safety features of the Acura RDX 2017.

The RDX comes with a state of the art six airbag system with two airbags for the front and two airbags for the sides in the front. There are also two side curtain airbags that cover the front and rear seats too. This airbag system is very sophisticated and provides the ultimate levels of comfort, safety, and protection for the driver as well as the passengers in the front and at the back of the car.

All the five seats in the RDX have head restraints and three-point seatbelts. The front seats come with tensioners that limit the load. The front airbags come with multiple thresholds, two-stage inflators and can inflate at varying degrees depending on the severity of the impact or crash, usage of the seatbelt and other factors. The front airbags must work well with the seatbelts and compliment them to reduce the possibility of injuries to the upper body and head in case of frontal impacts and crashes.

The front passenger seats have sensors to detect if someone is sitting there or if the front passenger is too small for the airbag to deploy safely and not injure him. The front airbags can be disengaged for this reason if necessary.

If there are side impacts the SmartVent front side airbag will inflate to protect the driver’s and passengers’ upper body.

Visit your nearest Acura showroom today and try out the airbag safety features.
