  • Acura/ ELS Premium Surround Sound System
    Technology Package

    Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer, Elliot Scheiner (ELS32), helped design the RDX 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 from 2-channel digital sources, such as CDs, SiriusXM Satellite Radio4, a USB7-connected iPod8, flash drive containing MP3, WMA®6 or AAC music files, or Bluetooth®11 Audio. Most iPhones with the Pandora®45 application, when connected by USB, enable Pandora or Aha internet radio operation using audio system controls. The ODMD touch-screen makes all these sources easy to access and use, and almost all audio system functions can be performed by Voice Recognition.

  • Jewel Eye LED Headlights
    Standard Feature

    All RDX models are equipped with Jewel Eye™ LED headlights which provide a whiter, brighter beam than HID or halogen headlights, while using less energy and lasting significantly longer.

  • All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control
    RDX AWD Standard Feature

    The RDX all-wheel drive system is designed to help maximize the use of available traction in both dry and slippery conditions, while minimizing system-wide friction and power loss to help optimize fuel efficiency. The system operates as an efficient FWD vehicle during normal cruising with 100% of engine torque being directed to the front wheels. During moderate acceleration or when front wheel slip is detected in dry conditions, 25% of engine torque is transferred to the rear wheels with a possible 50% rear distribution on a wet or slippery surface.

  • Navigation w/ Voice Recognition
    Technology Package

    Part of the Technology Package, the Acura Navigation System10 features an eight-inch screen mounted high in the center control panel for easy visibility, which also serves as the monitor for the Multi-view Rear 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 hard drive 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.

  • SMS / Email / Siri Eyes Free
    Standard Feature

    Handheld texting while driving is illegal in most states and highly dangerous in all states. The integrated SMS text message and email function44 enables you to respond to incoming text messages while following the law and minimizing potential driver distraction. When driving with a paired, activated, SMS-compatible phone, the system notifies you of incoming text messages and asks if you want the message read aloud to you and have a choice of six canned replies you can send with the push of a button.
    Drivers with paired, Siri-equipped iPhones®8 can also use voice-command to perform these (and other) functions as well ask the familiar, friendly interface to perform multiple functions including reading and sending texts, checking weather, sports scores and stock quotes, making calendar appointments and on Premium or Technology Plus Package models, read emails.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
    Advance Package

    Conventional cruise control has always been welcome on long highway trips, but can be of little use on an urban driver’s daily routine. As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow53 system allows you to set a desired speed, but it will also keep a set space from the car ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
    Advance Package

    The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)59 works proactively to keep the vehicle not just inside the lane, but in the center of the lane. With the system engaged and detecting lane borders, if you drift to either side of the lane without signaling, the steering wheel will lightly tug the vehicle back to the center and keep it there. You can easily ever rule its actions and you are expected to continue to steer the vehicle, but it can be useful when you are momentarily distracted.
