Acura MDX Smart Entry

Smart Entry: If your hands are full as you approach the MDX, no problem. The Smart Entry system makes getting inside a breeze.

Acura MDX Bluetooth

Bluetooth Connectivity: Access phone functions without taking your hands off the wheel with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink. As long as your phone is turned on and is somewhere in the vehicle, you can make and receive phone calls with ease. Bluetooth Streaming Audio also comes standard, letting drivers access a variety of music channels and apps.

Eight-Speaker Sound System: Standard onboard the Acura MDX is an Acura Premium Audio System with eight speakers. Other standard audio features include MP3 and WMA compatibility, iPod integration, Aha and Pandora compatibility, speed-sensitive volume control, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

Acura MDX Siri

Siri on Board: Siri Eyes Free comes standard in the MDX, letting drivers use iPhone features without taking their eyes off the road or their hands off the wheel. SMS and MMS text message reading also comes standard.

Acura MDX Powered Up Charging Station

Powered Up: Drivers and passengers can keep their devices charged with ease thanks to various connection ports stationed around the MDX’s interior. Utilize 12-volt power outlets in the center console, front armrest, and cargo area along with two USB charge ports for the second-row seats and two USB charge ports up front.

Available Tech Amenities

High-tech features that are available for the Acura MDX, either à la carte or as part of a package, include the following:


Acura MDX Navigation

Acura Navigation System with 3D View: This available state-of-the-art navigation system helps drivers get around more easily and safely. It features a full VGA 8-inch screen, a 3D viewing option, HD Digital Traffic, a lifetime navigation traffic subscription, Traffic Rerouting, turn-by-turn guidance on the vehicle’s MID, and a hard drive for fast data access.

Acura MDX Audio System

ELS Studio Premium Audio System: This elite sound system features between 10 and 12 speakers, depending on the package you choose. The system’s primary functions can be operated through steering wheel–mounted controls, and almost all its functions can be activated through voice recognition. Enjoy prime sound quality through this critically acclaimed system, which was designed with the assistance of Grammy Award–winning producer and recording engineer Elliot Scheiner. HD Radio and Song by Voice are also available.

Acura MDX Rear Entertainment

Rear Entertainment System: Boredom will become a thing of the past thanks the Acura MDX’s available rear entertainment system, which is available on models that have the Technology or Advance packages. Rear-seat passengers can enjoy their favorite shows on the Acura DVD Rear Entertainment System, which includes either a 9-inch screen or an extra-wide 16.2-inch screen that drops down from an overhead console. Ceiling-mounted speakers can be added, and passengers can also use the included wireless Personal Surround headphones. An illuminated, removable wireless remote and LCD control screen are also included.

Acura MDX Acuralink

AcuraLink the Next Generation: The MDX’s AcuraLink system features two-way cellular communication via an embedded cellular device. This system features AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic, which can show traffic levels on busy side streets and freeways. The system can also send out an automatic notification if an airbag has been deployed in the vehicle; and if the MDX is stolen, the system enables law enforcement to track the vehicle. This system additionally lets the driver remotely lock and unlock the MDX using a smartphone. An added subscription service available for this system can further connect the MDX to a live concierge, who can assist in locating destinations and also send directions to the vehicle’s navigation system.

Acura MDX Climate Control

GPS-Linked Climate Control: The MDX’s standard tri-zone automatic climate control system can feature the added element of GPS linking. Through the position-sensing ability of the vehicle’s GPS navigation system, a 3D solar sensing feature enhances onboard comfort for the SUV’s passengers. Through constantly updated vehicle position information, the navigation system determines the sun’s position relative to the driver and front passenger. Combining that data with input from a solar sensor, the climate control system automatically adjusts cooling/heating and airflow as needed to compensate for asymmetrical solar heating. Additionally, for the MDX Advance and Entertainment packages, the vehicle’s heated and ventilated front seats are electronically linked to the climate control system.

Acura MDX Windshield Wipers

Intelligent Windshield Wipers: Rain-sensing wipers are another available feature for the Acura MDX, further helping drivers stay focused on the road while they’re driving. These automated windshield wipers operate based on the amount of precipitation sensed on the windshield, automatically adjusting so the driver doesn’t have to do it manually as rainfall levels change.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
