Acura MDX interior teasers reveal digital gauge cluster, massaging seats and more

The MDX’s interior looks to be a big step up.


Acura

Acura released a bunch of new MDX teasers on Thursday, this time showing its next-generation SUV’s interior. We got our first glimpse at the new MDX last week, in a very rad teaser that looks like it’s straight out of an ’80s video game. We’re glad Acura is continuing that neon-esque theme with these new photos.

The new MDX will be revealed in prototype form on Wednesday, Oct. 14, but despite this not-quite-finished status, it should give us a pretty good idea of what to expect from Acura’s next-generation three-row SUV. For now, the company confirms the prototype will have open-pore wood, hand-wrapped leather with French stitching and quilted, massaging front seats.

On the technology front, the MDX looks to be chock full of the good stuff, with a high-definition infotainment display, 25-speaker ELS premium audio system, LED ambient

Use of Coronavirus Rapid Tests May Have Fueled White House Covid-19 Cluster, Experts Say

At least eight people who attended the White House’s recent Supreme Court nomination ceremony for Amy Coney Barrett have tested positive for the coronavirus, and public health experts say they expect more attendees to be diagnosed in coming days.

The White House says it has relied on rapid testing to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 among officials and guests. Officials don’t wear masks or socially distance because they are tested daily. The president is also tested for the coronavirus every day, as is anyone who comes in close contact with him.

Trump Tempted Fate Long Before Rose Garden Coronavirus Cluster

Ever since March, when much of the country went into lockdown to contain the coronavirus, Donald Trump has tempted fate — ignoring his own administration’s advice on avoiding the virus, yet managing to avoid it all the same.

There was a June rally inside a Tulsa arena, and a convention speech to 2,500 people on the South Lawn of the White House in August. Then came de facto political rallies, which gave way to full outdoor rallies, which gave way to indoor ones. All gathered Trump supporters, largely maskless, tightly packed together, and yet the president — a habitual germophobe even before the pandemic — always emerged unscathed.

But they all paled next to last weekend’s celebratory introduction of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, where roughly 150 guests sat shoulder-to-shoulder in the White House Rose Garden. Senators and other Republican luminaries worked the crowd, shaking
