Acura MDX Exterior Technology

As a leading luxury 3-row SUV, the Acura MDX naturally offers plenty of convenience features even outside the cabin. Just a few popular exterior convenience amenities include:

  • Remote-Linked Power-Operated Tailgate: If you have the Smart Entry remote about your person, you can open or close the power tailgate simply by raising or lowering your foot under the center of the rear bumper.
  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers: Wipers turn on when rain is sensed and automatically alter their speed according to changing rainfall levels.
  • Auto-On/Off Headlight Operation with Wiper Integration: For your convenience, Acura MDX headlights automatically turn on when the windshield wipers operate then off two-and-a-half minutes after the last wipe.

Acura MDX Convenience Technology

The Keyless Access System with Smart Entry and Push Button Start lets you unlock the Acura MDX and fire up its engine without even having to take the keys from your pocket or purse, and each model is fitted with Acura Personalized Settings to ensure vehicle functions and settings automatically revert to your personal preferences.


Once settled, you’ll find the MDX interior provides a staggering range of convenience features, including:

  • Acura Navigation System with 3D View: Delivers a Color Multi-Information Display (MID) with Turn-by-Turn Guidance, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™ with Street and Freeway Conditions, and Traffic Rerouting™.
  • AcuraLink® Satellite Communication: Two-way cellular communication lets your MDX send and receive information. You can send a location from your smartphone to the Acura MDX navigation system, talk with a live concierge, and more.
  • HomeLink®: Make pulling into your own drive more convenient by syncing your vehicle with garage door openers and other handy HomeLink devices.
  • GPS-Linked Climate Control: A solar sensor measures the sun’s intensity, determines its impact on interior temperature, then tracks the suns position relative to the vehicle and adjusts climate control settings accordingly.


Acura MDX Standard Entertainment Technology

As noted by critics from Edmunds.com: “Unlike many of its rivals, the Acura MDX is well-equipped in its base form.” Even the entry-level trim features an On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) touchscreen and 8-Inch Color Display to ensure you can effortlessly control your interior environment.

You’ll also get Apple CarPlay® Integration and Android Auto™ Integration as standard. Use that leading smartphone integration technology to sync with your compatible device and bring its contacts list, music library, and select apps to the Acura MDX infotainment system.


The entry-level Acura MDX sound system delivers immersive audio through 8 speakers, and further standard entertainment features include:

  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
  • CD, MP3 and WMA6 Compatible Disc Player
  • MP3/Auxiliary Input Jack
  • Pandora® Compatibility
  • Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC)
  • Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® Wireless Telephone Interface
  • SMS, MMS Text Message and Email Capability

    Acura MDX Available Entertainment Technology

    While Acura MDX standard entertainment features establish a strong foundation, the vehicle’s list of available technology takes you to the cutting edge of onboard amenities.


    Just a few of the Acura MDX’s standout entertainment features include:

    • Acura/ELS Studio®32 Premium Audio System: The premium sound system was designed with assistance from Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner, so expect pitch perfect audio from up to 12 speakers.
    • Song By Voice®: Use the Voice Recognition System to select and play music using voice commands for song, artist, album, or genre. Choose from anything on your smartphone or USB-connected drive.
  • HD Radio®: Provides digital high-definition broadcasts and exquisite sound quality from AM and FM stations.
  • Acura Entertainment System: The Acura DVD Rear Entertainment System plays from a 9-inch screen as standard or an extra-wide 16.2-inch screen with Advance and Entertainment Package models to keep those in the 2nd and 3rd row seats happy even during longer drives.
