Next-Gen Acura MDX Headed to Motown as a Concept [2013 Detroit Auto Show]
Acura today released a vague sketch of the 2014 MDX prototype it’ll be revealing at the 2013 Detroit auto show. Although very few details were given, Acura says the next-generation MDX (spy photos here!) will utilize an “aero sculpture” design language and feature alluring proportions with smooth, arching bodylines. What we see is a longer, leaner profile; a far more elegant side glass treatment; a steeper rake to the backlight; and ramped-up personality in the front fascia. Oh, and big honkin’ arches over the wheels, implying some of the excellent dynamics the current one delivers but doesn’t advertise.

Considering Honda and Acura’s track record of revealing so-called concepts and prototypes in high-profile settings and then ushering them into production shortly thereafter with only a few changes, it’s a good bet that the MDX prototype we see in Detroit will be a fairly accurate representation of the real deal. We’ll have official images and full info covering the 2014 MDX prototype the moment the sheet comes off next month.
