Honda announced that they showcase the all-new Acura CDX compact SUV model at Auto China 2016. The CDX is the first Acura manufactured in China. However, at the unveiling Acura said the vehicle was designed primarily for the Chinese market. This CDX is the luxury crossover for those who value comfort, safety, and technology over gratifying driving dynamics.
The CDX is related to Honda’s HR-V already on sale in the United States, so there is a chance you may see it yet. If sold here it would target the BMW X1, Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Lincoln MKC.
This model realizes a high-level fusion of sharp styling and emotional design based on the Acura Precision Concept,though on the tiny form of the Acura CDX the enlarged grille, Acura symbol and headlights look a little out of proportion. A concept styling model of Acura, as well as the innovative technologies in the areas of both driving and environmental performance and excellent utility unique to SUV models.
This all-new Acura CDX adopts a 1.5-liter turbo engine and 8DCT which realizes a powerful driving experience. Power comes from the new turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine of parent company Honda. The engine is mated to an eight speed dual-clutch transmission and can power either the front wheels only or all four.
Honda also had new crossover in Beijing- Called the Avancier, the new crossover is a mid-size model whose design has been inspired by the Concept D revealed a year ago, a rakish crossover not unlike the unsuccessful Honda Crosstour.
