Safety Highlights

World’s First Airbag Technology

The all-new passenger front airbag technology in TLX is designed to better manage lateral collision forces that can cause an occupant's head to rotate severely at high velocity, or to slide off a conventional airbag, increasing the chance of serious injury. It was developed in part based on a landmark study of brain injuries led by scientists at the U.S. Department of Transportation, which resulted in the creation of the BrIC (Brain Injury Criteria) methodology for measuring brain injuries in vehicle collisions.

Rather than the single inflatable chamber of conventional airbag systems, the new airbag operates something like a baseball catcher’s mitt, with an uninflated panel first catching and decelerating the occupant’s head with less force, while also directing it inward between two inflated chambers to cradle and protect the head. Specifically, the new passenger front airbag uses four major components: three inflated compartments consisting of a center chamber and two outward-projecting side chambers that create a wide base across the dash and the uninflated “sail panel” that stretches between the two side chambers.

In addition to the new passenger front airbag, the 2021 TLX now includes knee airbags for the driver and front passenger. The knee airbags are designed to better control the forward motion of the occupants in the event of a frontal collision, in conjunction with the front airbags and seatbelts. Each knee airbag is contained beneath a panel on the underside of the instrument panel, which is contoured away from the knees, providing improved legroom and easier ingress and egress from the vehicle.

The 2021 TLX is equipped with eight airbags in total, the most ever for the model, including front, side and knee airbags for the driver and front passenger and side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor.

Advanced Safety and Driver-Assistive Technologies

All 2021 TLX models will come standard with the AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, including multiple new or enhanced capabilities designed to help the driver avoid or mitigate the severity of a collision or help them with typical driving tasks.

Enhanced Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
The 2021 TLX’s Collision Mitigation Braking System uses a wider-angle forward radar sensing unit that can better detect objects ahead in the roadway, including pedestrians. With CMBS, the TLX can then warn the driver of a potential collision and, if needed, act to apply the brakes.

Driver Awareness Monitor
The 2021 TLX also includes a new Driver Awareness Monitor, which continually monitors and assesses driver behavior behind the wheel. Using input from the steering angle sensor to measure both the frequency and severity of the driver's steering inputs to gauge awareness, the system issues a warning to take a break if it determines the driver is becoming inattentive.

Traffic Jam Assist (TJA)
The 2021 TLX now includes Traffic Jam Assist (TJA), a first for TLX. Working in conjunction with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow and Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), TJA reduces driver stress in highly congested traffic situations by helping keep the vehicle centered in the lane and at a set interval from a vehicle detected ahead.

Next-Generation ACE Body Structure

The new TLX also is designed with advanced levels of collision protection through the use of Acura’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, which has been further evolved in the new TLX body and other structural elements to provide additional occupant protection in a wider range of collision scenarios. The next-gen ACE body structure enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by using a network of interconnected structural elements to absorb and distribute crash energy away from the passenger compartment. In addition, the 2021 TLX central floor tunnel is made of high-strength steel and ties into the lower front bulkhead. This advanced structure channels crash loads into and through the tunnel instead of into the passenger cabin. Rear crash load paths are similarly dispersed.

In addition to helping protect the occupants of the new TLX, the enhanced frontal crash energy management of the ACE body structure can also help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash. Additionally, ACE helps minimize the potential for under-ride or over-ride situations that can happen during frontal impacts between vehicles of differing ride height.
