Standard Features

Whether you choose the 2018 Acura MDX or the 2018 Honda Pilot, you’ll get standard features like 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth® phone and audio connectivity, and a rearview camera. The standard Acura MDX comes much more well-equipped, however, offering standard features like:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Power front seats
  • Memorized driver settings
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Keyless entry
  • Push-button start
  • Power liftgate
  • Adaptive suspension dampers
  • AcuraWatch driver assistance suite
  • SiriusXM® satellite radio
  • 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™

While many of these features are available on the Honda Pilot, none of them come standard—and some of them aren’t available at all.
