    It’s tough to describe what makes an Acura an Acura, but we think the 2017 Acura RDX technology features are a good start. Available now at Chicagoland Acura Dealers, the RDX tech goes beyond the standard expectations of the auto market, with advanced connectivity, entertainment, convenience, and safety features that make this crossover a leader.

Connectivity and Entertainment

When drivers ask us about the 2017 Acura RDX technology features, these are the amenities most of them are thinking of. Connectivity features like Bluetooth and AcuraLink are streamlined ways of interacting with your car while Acura’s premium audio system ensures your ride is a fun one—even if it’s on the daily commute.


RDX Bluetooth Hands Free

Bluetooth: Pair your smartphone with the RDX’s standard Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system to make hands-free phone calls behind the wheel and stream audio wirelessly from your device or an Internet radio service like Pandora.

RDX ELS Audio System

Premium Audio: The RDX features a seven-speaker Acura Premium Sound System as a standard feature, with an available ELS Studio Premium Audio System with 10 speakers, engineered by Grammy Award–winning producer Elliott Scheiner.

RDX USB - Ipod Connections

Audio Inputs: In addition to streaming over Bluetooth, the RDX has multiple USB ports for charging and connecting a flash drive, personal hard drive, or MP3 player. An auxiliary input jack can cover any non-USB audio source, and when you stream over an Internet service like Pandora, the touchscreen brings up controls to favorite a song or remove it from a playlist.

RDX Acuralink Real Time Traffic Feature

AcuraLink: This available telematics system connects your phone and car in new ways, with streaming services via Aha and the scheduling of maintenance and repair work with just a few taps on your smartphone.

RDX Interior from drivers seat

Siri Eyes Free: Bring the iPhone’s digital concierge with you wherever you go with the RDX’s available Siri connectivity. Siri Eyes Free opens up an iPhone to receive voice commands and keep you connected while keeping your hands on the wheel.

RDX Navigation

Navigation: Available on select RDX models, satellite-linked navigation with AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic directs you to your destination with turn-by-turn directions and routes you around traffic to save time. Control with voice commands or the touchscreen interface.


From the computer to the smartphone, technology makes our lives easier, and these 2017 Acura RDX technology features give the crossover an upgrade in convenience.

Acura vehicles are always engineered with safety in mind, but modern safety is more than just airbags and seat belts. These 2017 Acura RDX technology features help to keep the crossover safe for Chicagoland drivers:


RDX Multiview Rear Camera

Rearview Camera: A standard multi-angle rearview camera makes it easy to back the RDX out of a driveway or into a tight parking spot. Use top-down, wide-angle, and standard views to ensure your path is clear.

RDX Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Found on the AcuraWatch Plus package, this driver-assist feature uses radar settings to monitor the speeds of surrounding vehicles, adjusting your cruising speed to keep pace.

RDX Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist: On this AcuraWatch feature, a front-mounted camera tracks the markings on the pavement and issues a warning if it senses the RDX is drifting; if the driver fails to respond, it can give the wheel a nudge to keep you centered.

RDX Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking: The radar system of Adaptive Cruise Control is put to new use with the Forward Collision Warning, alerting the driver to a potential accident. If they don’t respond, this AcuraWatch feature can apply the brakes automatically.

RDX Blind Spot Information System

Blind Spot Information System: Sensors are located on the rear of the RDX with this available feature, detecting the presence of vehicles in the blind spot and lighting up an indicator on the dash to alert you.

RDX Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

Rear Cross Traffic Monitor:The Blind Spot Information System’s sensors can also detect when a car is approaching from the left or the right, alerting you to potential cross traffic before it would show up in your rearview mirror or camera.
