Acura MDX teaser photos show an upscale interior
See full picture gallery >>
After Acura annoyed us a week ago with an exterior photo of the fourth-generation Acura MDX, he has now created pictures of the interior. The outer teaser was done in the "Tron" style, but these inner shots go beyond the outline to reveal some details that are much less obscured.
Acura promises that the MDX will be the "premium and performance-oriented" version of the SUV and has received "elevated status" as the brand's flagship. (Only about 1,000 of the RLX were sold in North America last year, up from 52,000 of the MDX. So it appears the large sedan has been downgraded as the flagship. Aw.)
The MDX's dashboard is lower and wider, Acura says, and the interior is clad in real open-cell wood. The leather dashboard is "hand-wrapped" with French stitching. All three rows of seats are quilted, the perforations are graduated and there are contrasting piping and seams. Massaging the front seats adds to the premium experience.
Acura promises a multitude of new technologies in the cabin, including the so-called Acura Precision Cockpit, a mighty wide-looking HD infotainment screen and the dynamic ELS Studio 3D sound system from Acura with 25 speakers. (Where do they put them all?)
After Acura did great things with the RDX and the new 2021 TLX, we expect the MDX redesign to revive the brand. The MDX will likely offer the same engines as the TLX: a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, 272-horsepower four-cylinder base engine and a 3.0-liter, turbocharged, 355-horsepower V6 engine as an option. We should know more about all of this, however, when the prototype Acura MDX - albeit a near-production prototype - launches next Wednesday, October 14th.
