Acura Technology Easily Connects You to the True Driver's Experience

The future of transportation technology is a lot closer than you might think--and it's being ushered in largely in part by Acura.

Acura recognizes that, for most modern luxury cars, the experience demands more than just the finest leathers or the most-bolstered seats. The true driver's experience must be more comfortable, more attuned, more connected, more connected, clearer, and cleaner--and Acura is looking to deliver exactly that. New Acura technology is years beyond what other automakers are offering and can improve your driving experience in nearly every category.

Acura Heads-Up Display

This technology inspired by fighter jets and military vehicles that require essential information to be displayed right in the line of sight of the driver. This makes it easy to see essential information, without having to look away from the road. This Heads-Up Display sends essential driving information, like speed, directions, calling details, and more to a small, unobtrusive screen near the lower section of the windshield. This means you can get all the information you need, without having to take your eyes off the road.

Surround-View Display

This feature is available on most new Acura models with the addition of the available Advance Package. This system features high-quality exterior cameras that work in tandem to create a detailed picture of your surroundings. You'll have a full 360-degree view of what's around your Acura and guidelines to help you see exactly where you are and where you're heading. This makes it simple and stress free to park, and give you an extra set of eyes on pedestrians or things behind you when backing up.

ELS Studio 3D Premium Sound System

Available currently on the Acura RDX and soon to be available on additional models is the ELS Studio 3D Premium Audio System. This system gives you music the way it was meant to be listened to. The sound quality is perfectly integrated into the cabin so you'll enjoy studio-like quality all throughout. This system incorporates 16 speakers that provide an exceptional surround-sound experience. There is a 12-speaker ELS Studio System option available on most models and is included on entry-level Acura RDX models.

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

This highly-advanced performance technology brings you one of the most advanced all-wheel drive system on the market. Super Handling All-wheel drive is available on the Acura MDX, RLX, TLX, and RDX. If you choose the Acura NSX, you'll get an exclusive Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-wheel drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD) system.


AcuraLink is an available app for your smartphone and your car that can do just about everything you need it to do. It can deliver essential vehicle information to customizing step-by-step (sometimes literally) directions. Features the AcuraLink app brings you include:

GPS Climate Control

This innovative and state-of-the-art climate control system uses a sophisticated system of GPS positioning and solar sensors to know exactly where and how strongly the sun is shining. It can even tell which side of the car is receiving more of that light and heat. Using that information, the climate control system can adjust itself accordingly to keep your cabin temperature at the perfect level of comfort.
