At the 2013 North American International Auto Show, Acura, showed the 2014 MDX Concept that it will be launching in mid-2013 with both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive layouts available. This new luxury utility vehicle isn’t finished yet so it was shown as a prototype vehicle. The exterior looks very good but the interior hasn’t been shown yet. When compared to the out going MDX, this new model has a refined design that has 16-percent increased aerodynamic efficiency.
2014 Acura RLX Hybrid
The RLX is replacing the RL in Acura’s line up as the new flag ship vehicle. This new model will compete with the best from Europe and Japan in the luxury car segment. Acura enthusiasts have been waiting for a new RL for sometime and the production version of the RLX was shown at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. This car is kind of a “Plan B” for Acura as the RL they really wanted to build ended up being cancelled. This looks to be a great replacement and has the design and features to earn its flag ship title.
