Ready, Set, RLX: Wayne Area Acura Drivers Love the New Tech Standards
The automotive industry has grown in tandem with the tech industry. Features that once seemed far away and Star Trek-worthy are now standard on many vehicles, including the 2016 Acura RLX. At our Acura dealership serving Wayne NJ, we’re very excited about what these newly-minted sedans have to offer to drivers with an appreciation for technological innovation.
No Need to Go In Blind
The AcuraWatch package is standard on the 2016 RLX. This suite of driver-assistive elements is designed to to increase situational awareness and make driving your Acura around Wayne NJ safer and more enjoyable. Some invaluable features include the blind spot information system, which detects vehicles in lanes next to you and alerts you to its presence with a buzzer and a light on the driver’s side windshield pillar.
Another feature is a cross-traffic monitor, which will alert you of vehicles crossing behind you as you back out of a parking space. Of course, there is also the multi-view rear camera, which provides guidelines for parking and has three separate views, one of which is a top-down view to help with parallel parking or any situation that may be a tight squeeze.
Note Your Surroundings
This suite of features also includes a number of alerts, alarms, and mitigation methods to make sure you’re as aware as possible. The Lane Keeping Assist system, which notes any detected lane change without a turn signal. The steering responds with a gentle tug, but not to worry- the car is still in your control. Another feature is the collision mitigation braking system, a groundbreaking method of reducing the likelihood of a collision by using a radar transmitter to detect distances of objects directly ahead and applies strong braking if a collision is unavoidable.
These innovations went from being nonexistent to indispensable. We know that- which is why we love that Acura has made them standard in the new RLX. If you’re interested in a test drive and checking out these great new features, visit us today and we’ll be happy to answer your questions and get you on the road!
