Acura is teasing its upcoming next-generation MDX via some photos of the interior with lots of pretty colours.
The brand has already given us a small teaser of the exterior via a YouTube video, showing that the new MDX will borrow styling from Acura’s new S-Type sedan, which means more pronounced creases and more machismo.
Acura says the new MDX’s interior will be the “most premium and performance-focused” version of the SUV, and that it earned its “elevated status” as the brand’s flagship. Previously, the RLX was the brand’s “flagship,” but after Acura only sold 1,000 units, it got demoted.
Apparently Acura will reveal the MDX “Prototype,” but we’re guessing it’s going to look almost exactly like the production version. However, it won’t look anything like these photos in real life, mainly because you won’t have a team of people carrying around neon lights every where you go to make your MDX look good.
But what you will get in real life is three rows of seating, including second-row captain’s chairs. All seats feature quilted contrast stitching, and the front seats get a massage function. The dashboard also receives an upgrade in the form of “hand-wrapped” French seams.
The car is set to be revealed on October 14, where we’ll get a better look at the interior without all the pretty lights.
