Setting a High-Tech Standard

A host of the MDX’s advanced technology features come standard, meaning drivers can enjoy them for the price of $43,950 MSRP (for front-wheel drive models)*—no upgrade required! Included among them are:


MDX Bluetooth Handsfree

Bluetooth Connectivity: Both Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth Streaming Audio come standard onboard the MDX, giving drivers safe, hands-free access to their smartphone features, such as calling, music, and apps.

MDX Siri

Siri at Your Service: If you have an iPhone, you can enjoy the helpful company of Siri when you’re out on the road with standard Siri Eyes Free. Access your iPhone functions with hands-free ease and even enjoy an SMS and MMS text message reading feature.

MDX Smart Entry

Smart Entry: With standard Smart Entry, drivers can unlock, enter, start, and drive the MDX without ever pulling out the key. As long as the Smart Key fob is in range, you’re good to go.

MDX Memory Seats

Driver Memory: The MDX’s key fobs can also be linked to a standard two-driver memory system, which stores preferences for the vehicle’s driver seat, exterior mirrors, steering column, audio system, and climate control. You and one other driver can sync up your preferences to your personal key fob so you never again have to worry about readjusting your settings after someone else has been behind the wheel.

MDX Power on the go

Power on the Go: Various convenient connection ports are positioned throughout the MDX cabin so vehicle occupants charge up their devices with convenient ease, including standard 12-volt power outlets in the center console, the front armrest, and the cargo area and two USB charge ports for the front-row seats and two USB ports for the second row.

MDX Audio System

High-Quality Sound System: For your listening pleasure, the Acura MDX features a standard eight-speaker Acura Premium Audio System. Other audio-enhancing standard features include iPod integration; MP3, WMA, and Pandora compatibility; SiriusXM Satellite Radio; and speed-sensitive volume control.

Technology Upgrades

In addition to its many standard tech features, the Acura MDX further features a host of premium available technology amenities that are offered as either individual upgrades or as part of available add-on packages. These features include:


MDX Rear Entertainment System

Rear Entertainment System: An available Acura DVD Rear Entertainment System, offered with the Technology and Advance packages, makes every trip better. Passengers in the backseat can enjoy their favorite programming on either a 9-inch screen or an extra-wide 16.2-inch screen, which drops down from an overhead console. Accessories include ceiling-mounted speakers, wireless Personal Surround headphones, an illuminated wireless remote, and an LCD control screen.

MDX Sound System

ELS Studio Premium Audio System: Drivers can upgrade the MDX’s sound system to an ELS Studio Premium Audio System with 10 to 12 speakers, depending on the selected package. Audio system functions can be conveniently accessed through both steering wheel–mounted controls and voice recognition. Available listening-enhancing extras include HD Radio and Song by Voice.

MDX Navigation

Acura Navigation System with 3D View: Stay safely on course with the available Acura Navigation System with 3D View. Features include a full VGA 8-inch screen, turn-by-turn guidance on the MID, HD Digital Traffic, a 3D viewing option, a lifetime navigation traffic subscription, Traffic Rerouting, and a hard drive for quick data access.

MDX GPS Climate Control

GPS-Linked Climate Control: No matter which MDX model you opt for, you’ll enjoy the comfort of tri-zone automatic climate control, and this system can be upgraded to feature GPS linking. A 3D solar sensing function operates through the position-sensing feature of the MDX’s GPS navigation system to constantly keep tabs on the sun’s relative position to the driver and front-seat passenger. Merging that information with data from a solar sensor, the MDX’s climate control system adjusts the interior temperature and airflow automatically to compensate for asymmetrical solar heating. When the MDX is equipped with the Advance or Entertainment packages, the vehicle’s heated and ventilated seats are also linked electronically to the climate control system.

MDX Acuralink

AcuraLink the Next Generation: An embedded cellular device enables two-way cellular communication through the available AcuraLink system, which makes it possible for emergency responders to be alerted when an airbag deploys in the vehicle and also helps law enforcement locate the MDX in the event of theft. This system includes AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic, which displays traffic levels on busy freeways and side streets, and drivers can also remotely lock and unlock the MDX via a smartphone. Through an available subscription service, the vehicle can additionally connect to a live concierge when the driver needs help finding a location.

MDX Advance Package

More Power: In addition to the various standard power outlets found throughout the MDX, the Advance Package further lets vehicle occupants utilize two USB charging ports in the third row, and the Entertainment Package adds a 110-volt power outlet in the front center console.

State-of-the-Art Safety

The MDX further serves up a robust array of high-tech safety and driver-assist systems to help protect drivers and passengers when they’re out on the road. Standard safety features include a Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, a multi-view rear camera with dynamic guidelines, Road Departure Mitigation, trailer stability assist, SmartVent front side airbags, and vehicle stability assist with traction control and motion adaptive steering.
