Silver 2018 Acura MDX Advance Package driving down highway

Part of the reason you want to drive an Acura model is for the luxury. It’s all about finding yourself in a vehicle that is a step above the economy vehicles you’ve driven your whole life. Naturally, luxury means different things to different people. Whether your focus is on performance, style or maximum convenience features, there’s something for everyone in the 2018 Acura MDX. You just have to know where to look.

Comparing the 2018 Acura MDX Technology vs Entertainment vs Advance Package, you’ll quickly learn that each offers additional features above and beyond what you find in the standard model. A model that’s already packed with amenities. One thing to keep in mind is that the Technology Package is the only stand-alone option to be added to the Standard model. The Entertainment Package must be stacked with either the Technology or the Advance Package. The Advance, on the other hand, requires the Technology Package.

2018 Acura MDX Packages Enhance Your Driving Experience

When considering the 2018 Acura MDX, it’s important to understand that your package options work much like trims in other brands. The MDX starts with a Standard model that has core features. These features have been determined as necessities for a premium model. The Technology Package is a step up and offers a host of features that, naturally, fall into the “technology” category. From high-quality infotainment and sound to a handful of driver assistance features and everyday conveniences.

The Entertainment Package is a bit like a mid-trim option. At a minimum, it has to be stacked with the aforementioned Technology Package, but it can also be paired with the Advance (which would also include the Technology, for a combination of all three package options). As you can see in the chart, features differ based on which other packages this one is paired with.

Finally, there is the Advance Package, which must include the Technology features, then stacks on even more in terms of driver assistance, premium materials and overall comfort.
