If you’re an Amazon Prime member and own a 2019 or 2020MY Acura RDX with an active AcuraLink service, you can now opt to have your Amazon packages delivered directly inside your vehicle through Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery.
The third and latest-generation of AcuraLink offers access to cloud-based services, information and music, and you can even use it to make service appointments for your car.

“The Acura RDX helps with the busy lifestyles of its drivers in numerous ways, and now offers enhanced connectivity and functionality to make busy days less hectic,” said Art St. Cyr, VP of automobile operations. “The addition of Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery as a service enabled by AcuraLink expands the service’s convenience features allowing customers to focus on getting where they need to go without worrying about package delivery.”
Amazon Prime members need only download the Key by Amazon app to their smartphone, log in using their credentials and then enter the year, make and model or their car. Once setup is complete and a delivery location is registered, customers can proceed to shop online and select the “In-Car” delivery option at checkout.
The next step is to park within two blocks of your selected delivery address. Then, you will receive a 4-hour delivery window and an ‘Arriving Now’ notification when the delivery driver is approaching your vehicle, using its GPS location to find it.
In order to complete the delivery, the driver will scan the package and request for the vehicle to be unlocked. After the package is placed inside, the car is re-locked and the customer receives a notification from the app letting them know that their car is locked and that the package has been placed inside.
