Japanese automaker Acura has arrived at dealerships with a few extra add-ons and a higher starting price tag. The crossover's price tag will start at $750 more than it did for the 2022 model, though that is a common trend among automakers due to inflation and supply chain problems as of late.
The 2023 5-passenger RDX will reach drivers with three years of AcuraLink services at no additional cost. The solution is an app that connects your vehicle to your smartphone and lets you use Alexa-enabled devices to control features of the driving experience. It's also possible to turn the Acura into a Wi-Fi hotspot thanks to the AcuraLink and AT&T.
The AcuraLink also has Security and Remote Packages able to remotely lock and unlock doors, start and turn off an engine, and find a vehicle if the driver forgot where it is - or it's been stolen.
In addition, the Acura Maintenance Package - good for the first two years or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first) of ownership - is included as a complementary perk.
