The updated Acura TLX 2021 sedan will receive a three-chamber airbagJune 19, 2020
Premium brand engineers claim that the new passenger airbag reduces the level of injuries due to frontal accidents.
The Japanese prestigious Acura TLX model year sedan is due to be unveiled soon. We already know that the novelty will receive smooth proportions of the body, an all-wheel drive system with vectorization of torque SH-AWD, as well as a more productive version of Type S. The latter will be equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged.
Premium brand engineers have developed a new three-chamber passenger airbag, which unfolds in most head-on collisions.
Seen from above, the airbag assumes an unusual V-shape with two side cameras located at an angle and protruding further from the dashboard than one central camera. When the airbag inflates, a flat “sail panel” unfolds between the side cameras, helping to slow the passenger’s head and chest more slowly until they touch the center camera. According to research by Acura, the sails and side chambers act like a baseball catcher’s mitten to begin to absorb momentum earlier by grasping the passenger’s head, neck and upper body to reduce injuries.
The TLX also comes standard with the AcuraWatch Active Safety Feature Set, including enhanced automatic emergency braking and collision avoidance that works in a wide variety of situations. Also new to AcuraWatch is driver attention monitoring, which analyzes the frequency and steering controls to determine if they are getting distracted. In addition, the “traffic jam” function for adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assistance eases stress blocking by keeping the TLX in the center of its lane and at a predetermined distance from the vehicle in front.
