What package options are available on the 2018 Acura RDX?

Drivers in the market for an SUV have a large market to choose from. The SUV body style is becoming increasingly popular, giving drivers room to be picky. Acura recently released its newest RDX model to drivers, and there are plenty of ways to tailor the model to the driver within it. If you’re curious what package options are available on the new 2018 SUV, keep on reading! We’ve done a bit of research and have broken down what’s standard, and what you may have to pay a little bit extra for on the model.


Drivers who choose the standard model will get core RDX features. Even on the base model, drivers can gain access to a 7-speaker sound system (complete with an 8-inch subwoofer), heated front seats, a backup camera, push-button start, and more! The exterior also offers LED headlights and taillights, which give the model a polished appearance.

AcuraWatch™ Plus Package

The AcuraWatch™ Plus Package offers drivers a suite of new safety features. With the package, drivers will have access to tools that can assist in avoiding collisions. An example of this is the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)*. The system acts as a second set of eyes for the driver, warning them when obstacles are getting closer.

Technology Package

The Technology Package is designed for the driver who enjoys using the latest and greatest tech features. More advanced audio connectivity is included here, as well as navigation, leather sport seating, a multi-function display system and more – all of which are ideal for those who enjoy staying ahead of the curve.

Advance Package

Comfort and efficiency are apparent in the Advance Package of the RDX. With this package, drivers can gain access to Remote Engine Start, rain-sensing wipers, front and rear parking sensors, heated front seating and so much more. The Technology and AcuraWatch™ Plus Package are both required to obtain this package.

*Depending on the circumstances, CMBS may not go through all of the alert stages before initiating the last stage of collision mitigation. The driver remains responsible to slow or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision.
