2020 Acura MDX Trim Levels
Like many shoppers in Atlantic City, Egg Harbor, and Vineland, NJ, you may be considering the 2020 Acura MDX as your next family-friendly luxury midsize SUV. While it’s a good choice, you may need to dig deeper into the 2020 Acura MDX trim levels to find the right package for you.
Technically speaking, the 2020 MDX doesn’t offer trim levels—just various packages. We’ll cover each one below, so you can see what features make their grand entrance at each level.

The Package-Free (Standard) 2020 Acura MDX
Even with a package-free SUV, you can still expect a wide range of impressive features inside the base-level 2020 Acura MDX.
This includes an On Demand Multi-Use Display™ 2.0. The touchscreen showcases all your important controls without crowding the dash with buttons. The bottom band is dedicated to the climate control system, and you can also easily find radio stations and save them for future reference.
Additionally, you can make calls, send texts, manage your calendar, and more easily with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® for smartphone integration.
The vehicle also comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, and it’s the same engine you’ll find across the board. Whether you’re driving through town or on the open highway, you’ll have the power you need to get up to speed quickly.
Acura MDX with Technology Package
The Technology Package adds features all around the car. On the exterior, you’ll get sporty 20-inch wheels to replace the 18-inch ones on the base MDX as well as rain-sensing windshield wipers that automatically adjust to the rate of precipitation.
Inside, you’ll add the Acura Navigation System to your infotainment system, letting you easily find turn-by-turn directions to your destination via voice recognition. Plus, with AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™, you can get from Point A to Point B efficiently.
Furthermore, you can have your own personal soundstage thanks to the Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System. Your music will come through clearly with 10 speakers, lower distortion, and an extended frequency range.
2020 MDX with A-Spec® Package
The A-Spec® Package is up next and gives the 2020 Acura MDX a bit of a performance upgrade.
The vehicle will still come with the 3.5L V6 engine. However, this package includes a Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system. With SH-AWD®, you get the same all-weather advantages of conventional all-wheel drive systems. However, you’ll also have high-performance dry-road handling. As a result, you’ll have maximum grip on any road, any time of the year.
Furthermore, while the MDX normally tows up to 3,500 pounds, this package bumps up the maximum towing capacity to 5,000 pounds. So, if you wanted to bring along a camping trailer or a small ski boat to your next vacation spot, you could do so easily with the A-Spec® Package option.
Finally, you’ll get exterior design elements exclusive to this package. These include:
- A-Spec® dual exhaust outlets
- A-Spec® front and rear bumpers
- Gloss black and dark chrome trim
MDX with Advance Package
The Advance Package automatically comes paired with the Technology Package, so you’ll enjoy all those features and a few new ones.
This options package is all about comfort and convenience with its perforated Milano premium leather-trimmed seats and second-row captain’s chairs. That second row features a center console along with more elbow room for each passenger.
You’ll also get a heated steering wheel you can use to keep your hands toasty on a chilly morning or soothe them after a long day at work.
Heated and cooled front seats, plus heated rear seats, are more premium features you’ll get here. Three heat and ventilation settings, plus a fast warm-up feature, make the MDX with Advance Package equally ideal in the hot summers and the cold winters.
MDX with Entertainment Package
Whether you have kids or just some young-at-heart adults, the Entertainment Package can really enhance your ride. It doesn’t come alone, though. You’ll need to pair it with either the Technology Package or the Advance Package.
It includes a single-screen Acura Rear Entertainment System that connects with your devices and offers a 9-inch screen and DVD player.
However, if you have both the Entertainment Package and the Advance Package, you’ll get a 16.2-inch screen. It works as a single screen for wide-ratio movies or dual screens for two programs side by side. Wireless headphones are included as well, so each rider won’t be distracted by the other’s programming.
While the passengers in the back are watching a movie, you can listen to your favorite music up front. Each song will sound crystal-clear, too, through the 11-speaker or 12-speaker sound system—depending on which package you add to the Entertainment Package.
