2021 Acura ILX Safety Ratings & Features Post


The 2021 Acura ILX is one of the best deals amongst premium subcompact sedans starting at $26,100. You’ll find style that performs with the high-revving 201 hp DOHC i-VTEC® engine with 180 ft.-lb. of torque. The ILX offers a race-inspired 8-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) coupled with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters for more agile driving. Plus, package upgrades include leather upholstery, advanced infotainment features, and the luxe ELS audio system. Most importantly, the 2021 ILX is highly rated in safety testing and comes standard with hi-tech safety features as part AccuraWatch™ with optional enhanced safety and driver assist elements.

Safe & Sound with AcuraWatch™

Equipped with a standard suite of innovative safety technologies, the 2021 ILX can help improve driver awareness, avoid collisions, and mitigate an impact. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ helps alert drivers when the potential for a frontal impact is determined and can even apply the brakes to help avoid or reduce the impact of a collision. Road Departure Mitigation warns the driver to an unintentional departure from a detected lane or roadway. The feature can apply steering torque and the brakes to help keep the vehicle on the roadway. Adaptive Cruise Control helps reduce driver fatigue by maintaining a set speed and interval from the vehicle detected ahead. And the Lane Keeping Assist System can apply steering assistance at higher speeds, helping to keep your ILX centered in a detected lane.

Advanced Safety & Driver Assist Features

Alongside AcuraWatch™, additional driver-assistive technologies further enhance overall driver awareness from all sides of the vehicle. The available Blind Spot Information System monitors the rear and sides of your ILX and can alert you to vehicles detected in adjacent lanes – this comes standard on the Technology, A-Spec, and Advance Packages. When the ILX is in reverse, the Rear Cross Traffic Monitor combines the rear camera system and radar sensors to notify you to detected vehicles approaching from either side (also standard on upgraded packages). Standard on all models, the Multi-View Camera System gives you an advantage when you’re getting in and out of tight or hard-to-see areas with three different viewing angles.

Top Safety Ratings

The ILX earned an overall five-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This includes five stars on the front driver’s side crash test as well as five stars on the side crash; the Side Barrier Test simulates an intersection collision between a standing vehicle and moving barrier at 38.5 mph. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the 2021 ILX its top “Good” rating across all crashworthiness categories. The ILX also received the IIHS’s “Superior” rating on the Front Crash Prevention: Vehicle-to-Vehicle.
