Best Features of the 2020 Acura MDX SH-AWD With Technology

The 2020 Acura MDX is a fine sport utility vehicle no matter how you configure it, and it only gets better when you add the optional SH-AWD and Technology package. Here's a look at just some fo the best features on the 2020 Acura MDX SH-AWD with Technology.

Modern Acura Style

While not exclusive to this version of the 2020 Acura MDX, the sleek style of the sport utility vehicle is hard to understate. The sharp lines on the outside create a modern vibrancy that suggests some attitude, and the interior is full of sophistication. From high-end materials to the interior trim accents, everything about the cabin exudes class.

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

When a feature is in the SUV's name, you know it's a stand-out highlight -- and the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive doesn't disappoint. The advanced AWD system boosts handling both in adverse conditions and on dry roads by continually redirecting power to account for weight distribution, available traction and driver input. Depending on specific conditions, the system might:

  • Send as much as 90 percent of engine output to the front wheels for maximum fuel efficiency
  • Transfer as much as 45 percent of engine output to the rear wheels for maximum traction during hard acceleration
  • Transition as much as 70 percent of torque to the outside rear wheel for maximum cornering on turns and curves
  • Speed the outside rear wheel up by as much as 2.7 percent to reduce understeering on turns

GPS-Connected Climate Control

Many vehicles today have climate control HVAC systems that come as standard or optional features, but few (even among high-end models) come with a GPS-linked system. The Technology package's climate control takes into account your preferred settings and the weather at your specific location to determine exactly how much to heat or cool the SUV.

Navigation with Voice Recognition

The 2020 Acura MDX also makes it easy to get wherever you're going with a high-tech navigation system. The built-in system gives you turn-by-turn directions and accounts for current traffic conditions, and it lets you request directions with just the sound of your voice. There's no need to pull over and enter an address, because you can simply ask for directions to the place.

Acura/ELS Studio Premium Audio

For listening to tunes (or podcasts), the 2020 MDX features an Acura/ELS Studio Premium Audio System that comes with 10 speakers. The system infuses the cabin with a symphonic cornucopia, but it's not just the actual sound output that makes this premium audio system special. You can also request your favorites with Song by Voice, which is a voice-activated way to play music from your smartphone or USB-connected device.
