2020 MDX vs RDX: Technologies

The MDX and RDX also have lots of high-tech features for a more entertaining commute. For instance, they each come standard with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.

This feature gives you over 150 stations of sports, news, comedy, and commercial-free music to enjoy. Not only that, but you get extra features to heighten your listening experience. The Instant Replay, for example, lets you rewind a song you’re currently listening to, so you don’t miss a single word.

The Acura RDX also comes standard with Apple CarPlay™, while the Acura MDX comes standard with that feature along with Android Auto™. With either smartphone-integration feature, you can access your favorite apps right on the car’s display screen. That way, you can still stay connected to your phone while focusing on the road ahead.

Acura MDX vs Acura RDX: Performance Specs

For an SUV with ample power and a comfortable ride, both the 2020 MDX and 2020 RDX certainly deliver.

They’re both easy to maneuver and handle well on even winding roads. Plus, they each come standard with an Integrated Dynamics System to customize your driving experience the way you want.

In the MDX, this system will let you choose among three different modes:

  • Sport: This mode will increase steering feel and quicken throttle response for a more athletic ride.
  • Comfort: This offers a lighter power steering feel.
  • Normal: Normal mode gives you a great everyday driving experience.

The RDX, meanwhile, adds SPORT+ mode and replaces the Normal mode with Snow mode. This feature is designed to give you more confidence traveling on even the slickest surfaces. It’ll control the amount of torque that goes to each wheel, helping maintain traction and control.

However, both SUVs utilize the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system. It’s always active and designed to enhance handling on dry roads while also providing the same type of all-weather protection found in conventional AWD systems.
