Acura MDX Prototype Teases Major Change
Add Acura to the list of brands taking the wraps off a future vehicle, virtually, this month.
Just one day after Volkswagen unveils the Taos, Acura will show off a prototype that previews the next MDX.
Acura is promising big change for the three-row crossover, calling the redesign its “most ambitious” ever for the MDX. The fourth-generation of the MDX, or at least the prototype version, will bow on October 14.
A teaser image of the MDX is above.
“We’re accelerating Acura’s commitment to Precision Crafted Performance and this fourth-generation MDX is the most ambitious and consequential redesign of an Acura core model in our history,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and Acura brand officer. “This all-new MDX will take us into new territory in terms of performance, prestige and emotional appeal.”
The MDX will be longer, lower, and wider than the current-gen vehicle, according to Acura, and it will have LED headlights and taillights.
The MDX is the brand’s best-selling vehicle, accounting for around a third of Acura’s sales since it launched, according to the brand.
Teasers being what they are, there are no specs to report on right this second. We’ll know a lot more in two weeks.
