The new Acura lineup is offered with a pair of stability systems, including the basic Vehicle Stability Assist system and a state-of-the-art Agile Handling Assist system.

Precision Steering Thanks to Agile Handling Assist

The Acura Agile Handling Assist system has been carefully designed to optimize vehicle performance—even in difficult conditions. Building on the foundation set by Acura’s standard Vehicle Stability Assist system, which works only within a limited range, Agile Handling Assist is operational at the full daily use range.

This system is able to recognize even slight turns of the steering wheel. When a turn is registered, the system automatically applies slight braking force to both of the inner wheels in order to maximize stability and help improve handling. As soon as the driver returns the steering wheel to the center, any minor braking is returned to the outer wheels. Additionally, individual wheel braking helps correct both oversteering and understeering in your vehicle.
