Acura and INFINITI are Japanese auto companies that specialize in engineering luxurious cars. Both firms offer sedans and crossover SUVs with comparable market prices. However, Acura cars have superior quality when it comes to performance, efficiency and safety.
- Super Handling All-Wheel Drive
- Precision All-Wheel Steer
- Dual Clutch Transmission
- Sequential SportShift Automatic Transmission
- Electronic Gear Selection
Acura equips some of its vehicles with the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive that’s unrivaled by any AWD options in INFINITI vehicles. When equipped with a front-wheel drive, some Acura models have the Precision All-Wheel Steer technology that independently controls the movement of each wheel. Instead of relying on a continuously variable transmission, Acura prefers to install dual clutch transmissions or automatic transmissions with the SportShift function for the paddle shifters.
- Sport Hybrid System
- Multiple Electric Motors
- Signature i-VTEC Engine Blocks
- Variable Cylinder Management
- Engine Idle Stop
Acura’s signature Sport Hybrid powertrain is available with up to three electric motors that are strategically installed to optimize performance. These components work with a lithium-ion battery and a gasoline engine with the i-VTEC badge. Acura cars that have the Variable Cylinder Management and Idle Stop technology achieve great fuel economy on highways and in cities. Using multiple sensors to measure real-time demand for output, these smart features reduce or increase the mechanics of combustion in the powertrain.
- AcuraWatch Technology
- Vehicle Stability Assist
- SmartVent Front Side Airbags
The AcuraWatch suite consists of several driving aides that could potentially prevent an accident. Some of the package’s top features include the Collision Mitigation Braking and Road Departure Mitigation. The conventional Vehicle Stability Assist improves handling in inclement weather. Additionally, Acura cars are available with the SmartVent airbags that protect the driver and front passenger from side collisions.
