Acura Blind Spot Information

What Is the Acura Blind Spot Information System?

The Acura Blind Spot Information System helps drivers make informed decisions in multilane environments. Equipped Acura vehicles use a series of proximity sensors to monitor for vehicles entering the “alert zone” in adjacent lanes. If a vehicle is detected, an illuminated indicator appears on the corresponding side’s mirror or windshield pillar to passively alert the driver. An indicator will also appear on the Multi-Information Display (MID) of equipped vehicles.

If a turn signal is activated in the direction of the detected vehicle by the driver, the Blind Spot Information system will automatically use active alerts. This includes flashing the indicator lights on the mirrors or windshield pillars, and a warning beep will sound.

This smart monitoring system only provides notifications when needed in moderate and high speed traffic. To avoid unneeded proximity alerts when driving in bumper-to-bumper traffic or while parking, the information system is only active when traveling over 20 mph.

What Acura Vehicles Have the Blind Spot Information System?

The Acura Blind Spot Information System is available on all Acura models with the Technology, A-Spec, and Advance Packages. The location of indicators varies between models. Blind spot monitoring is also part of the AcuraWatch™ suite of driver assists. This includes other safety and information systems such as: Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, and Lane Keeping Assist System. Contact our helpful sales staff for more information on blind spot monitoring, or any of the available AcuraWatch™ systems.
