  • Super Handling All-Wheel Drive
    Available Feature

    Acura has handling and cornering down to a science with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). This sophisticated system is designed to enhance high-performance dry-road handling while providing the same all-weather advantages of conventional all-wheel drive. By continuously directing engine power to match weight distribution, available traction, and other conditions, SH-AWD provides seamless power transitions and supreme agility. The feel of such enhanced high-performance cornering is one that simply can't be matched by front, rear or conventional all-wheel drive systems.

  • Navigation
    Technology Package and Advance Package

    Enhance your sense of direction with the Acura Navigation System10. The centerpiece of the Technology Package, it uses a hard drive for quick data access and displays on a full VGA 8-inch screen. The system is fast, easy to read and incredibly convenient.

  • On Demand Multi-Use Display
    Standard Feature

    Leading the way in audio and information technology has its advantages, and its challenges. As the number of features continued to increase, Acura designers foresaw a very crowded center panel. So they designed an intuitive touch screen called On-Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) to house all the controls you need at any given time. As a result, what could have been more than 41 buttons has been simplified to nine.

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
    Standard Feature

    The Bluetooth®11 HandsFreeLink® system works with many Bluetooth®-enabled cell phones to let you receive and initiate phone calls through the MDX audio system without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
    Advance Package

    Setting the cruise control during your urban commute? Acura technology makes it possible. As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow53 system allows you to set a desired speed, but it will also maintain a set space from the car ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System
    Advance Package

    The Lane Keeping Assist system (LKAS)59 uses a camera that identifies lane divisions and works proactively to keep the vehicle within a detected lane.
