Acura SUV-X concept, 2013 Shanghai Auto Show
It was almost exactly three years ago that Acura previewed a new compact crossover with its SUV-X concept car.
Now, we’re just weeks away from seeing the production version.
The Japanese brand has confirmed it will use this month’s 2016 Beijing Auto Show to unveil the production version of the SUV-X, tipped to be called a CDX.
The vehicle will be the first Acura manufactured in China and may even be exported to Acura’s other markets, including the United States. It is expected to be related to Honda’s HR-V, already on sale here, and target the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Lincoln MKC and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
Honda Concept D, 2015 Shanghai Auto Show
Acura’s parent company Honda will also present a new crossover in Beijing. The vehicle will be the production version of the Concept D unveiled a year ago, a rakish crossover not unlike the unsuccessful Honda Crosstour.
We’ll have more details soon as the 2016 Beijing Auto Show gets underway April 25. For more coverage on the event, head to our dedicated hub.
