FEATURES

KEY FEATURES

  • Acura/ ELS Premium Surround Sound System
    TECHNOLOGY PACKAGE

    Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer, Elliot Scheiner (ELS32), helped design the MDX audio system to reproduce music the way it’s heard in the recording studio. The 10-speaker system can reproduce the 5.1 surround sound of DVD-A discs, while Dolby®5 Pro Logic® II signal processing can extract 6-channel surround sound from 2-channel digital sources, such as CDs, XM® Radio4, USB7 -connected iPod8 or flash drive containing MP3, WMA®6 or AAC music files. Almost all functions can be performed by Voice Recognition.

  • Super Handling All-Wheel Drive
    STANDARD FEATURE

    Acura developed its revolutionary Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system not only for better traction utilization on wet and slippery surfaces, but also to enhance high-performance dry-road handling. Unlike many all-wheel drive systems that merely react to wheel slippage, SH-AWD continuously determines the optimal level of power distribution between the front and rear axles and between the rear wheels, based on a reading of a wide variety of vehicle conditions.The system also helps enhance steering by sending available rear power to the outside wheel and rotating it slightly faster than the front wheels, propelling it through the turn. The result is enhanced high-performance cornering that neither front, rear, or conventional all-wheel-drive systems can equal.

  • Navigation w/ Voice Recognition
    TECHNOLOGY PACKAGE

    Part of the Technology Package, the Acura Navigation System9 features an eight-inch screen mounted high in the center control panel for easy visibility, which also serves as the monitor for the rearview camera. Using the interface dial or the Voice Recognition system, you can enter an address or have the system find a location from its vast destination database. The screen will plot your path on the map and show special displays to guide you through freeway ramps, interchanges and forks in the road. The system can show you nearby gas stations, ATMs and other points of interest and even display Zagat Survey® restaurant reviews.

  • AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic
    TECHNOLOGY PACKAGE

    To help you plan your journeys, this easy-to-use proprietary data network uses the XM® Radio4 communications interface to provide on-screen traffic information13 that‘s easy to read and access. If a route is set, the system can automatically alert you of possible weather or construction-related delays. Traffic data services are offered separately on a subscription basis for a nominal fee. The AcuraLink® system features a preprogrammed feature guide, dealer appointment reminders, and direct communication with your dealer.

  • 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 audio system without ever taking your hands off the wheel. The Multi-Information Display can show the caller’s name or number, while the center panel display can show reception and battery strength, depending on the phone. A one-time pairing process enables your Acura to communicate wirelessly with the phone, and up to six different phones can be paired with it at a time. After the initial pairing, a phone can be operated through the vehicle audio system without ever leaving your pocket or purse.

  • Active Damper System
    SPORT PACKAGE

    The Active Damper System achieves outstanding handling response while maintaining a refined level of comfort. The system centers around electromagnetically active shock absorbers, and an array of vehicle dynamics sensors, which allow the shocks to automatically adjust their damping force based on driving conditions. The result is a comfortable ride, yet with flat cornering and controlled body motion when quick actions are called upon. The system is always engaged and the driver can bias the system towards a comfort or a sport feel.
