Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) - uses a grille-mounted radar unit, motorized seatbelt E-pretentioners on the driverís and front passengerís seats and an automatic braking system to monitor potential frontal collisions and help reduce the impact on occupants by alerting the driver, tensioning the seatbelts and slowing the vehicle.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) Ė To compensate for changing traffic flow, ACC adjusts vehicle speed automatically by applying throttle and/or brake to maintain a consistent following distance.
Michelin PAX Run-Flat tires - helps provide enhanced safety and security with continuous mobility of up to 125 miles at up to 50 mph following a tire puncture.
New horsepower/torque ratings: 290 horsepower SAE net (Rev 8/04) at 6200 rpm, 256 lbs-ft torque SAE net (Rev 8/04) at 5000 rpm
Interesting...HP is decreased by 10. Was torque boosted then instead?

The CMBS and ACC systems are pretty cool. I saw a news report a few months ago about these, including complete demonstrations from inside an Inspire (U.S. Accord) on a track in Japan. I'm quite suprised that we're going to see them in a production car so soon.

Horspower is the same; there is a new SAE measurement standard. Acura has stated that they will note which standard was used in future hp numbers; hence the addition of "SAE net (Rev 8/04)"
