Presented at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show, the Acura 2014 MDX Concept previews the design direction for the third generation MDX luxury SUV, that will be launched by mid-2013.

As reported by Acura, the “Aero Sculpture” styling of the 2014 MDX Prototype pursues the direction of a smart, compact and premium appearance with low, wide and sleek proportions; a clean, efficient and uncluttered design; and premium detailing ilke the signature Jewel Eye LED headlights.

This “aero” image also reflects significant gains in aerodynamic efficiency, up 16 percent compared to the outgoing 2013 MDX, achieved through extensive testing in Honda R&D Americas’ new wind-tunnel laboratory in Raymond, Ohio – where the vehicle is being created.

The 2014 MDX Prototype’s sculpted exterior and arcing roofline (1.5-inches lower than the outgoing model) encase what will be an even more spacious and versatile cabin compared to the outgoing 2013 MDX.

The car features a longer wheelbase that enhances ride quality, increases second-row legroom, and improves third-row seat access.

“While we aren’t showcasing the interior today, I can assure you it will further improve the already great functionality in the cabin and cargo area while really amping up luxury, comfort and quiet,” added Jon Ikeda, chief designer, Acura Design Studio.

“And that’s really the focus of this new MDX, delivering outstanding luxury performance and family capability in a more refined and alluring package.”

In response to strong demand from consumers in warm weather markets Acura also will, for the first time, offer a front-wheel drive version of MDX in addition to the all-wheel drive (SH-AWD) model.

The 2014 MDX will also feature an all-new, more rigid and lightweight chassis, including new front and rear suspension design, and an all-new, direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC SOHC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM)
