At the 2016 Beijing Auto Show, the new crossover from Acura makes its debut. Its name is Acura CDX 2017 and it is aimed directly at the exploding Chinese market. The new Acura CDX 2017 will have very similar, almost identical dimensions as Honda’s CR-V, but of course, it will have a totally different appearance. According to Acura Company, the design of this model is motivated by the Precision Concept – a well-stylized sedan that appears at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. The introduction of this model corresponds to Acura’s 10th year in China, and that fact certainly makes this vehicle – a special vehicle. According to Acura, its newest crossover will hit the dealerships by the end of this month. Continue reading to find out something more about the new Acura CDX.
Acura CDX 2017 – Luxury and Elegance Design:
The exterior design of the upcoming model is simply beautiful. As we wrote in the intro, its design language is very similar to the Precision Concept vehicle. First of all, the front grille is the well known Acura grille with the large Company logo in the middle. The headlights of this model will have the same shape as in the Precision Concept, just this time; it will be closer to the front grille. The updated LED technology will probably power both the headlights and the taillights. For the U.S market, this model will carry the same design language which is very good news. Under the front grille, we can notice beautifully designed front bumper with openings for LED powered fog lights as well as with large air intakes fitted to improve fuel economy and overall performance. If you look better at the front bumper, you can notice some similarities with the BMW models. At the sides, the forthcoming Acura CDX 2017 features hard-creased body lines with huge wheel opening accents and dual body lines that run underneath the door handles and just over the door bottoms.
Unfortunately, we don’t have official photos about the interior design of the most recent model but we assume the dashboard will have a correspondingly angular design as the exterior. We can also anticipate a more conventional center console and dashboard design, with of course some new high tech features. If we observe the newest model from almost all Companies, we can see that all better vehicles use the leather upholstery inside the cabin, and the same case is expected with the anticipated Acura CDX 2017 as well. We also know that the new Acura CDX 2017 is able of accommodating up to five passengers.
