In what seems to be a Honda tradition, the automaker's luxury arm announced it will unveil a prototype of the next Acura MDX crossover at the 2013 Detroit auto show. As with other concept debuts, it will likely be very close to the 2014 production version.
Details are slim, but Acura released a teaser sketch and said the 2014 MDX prototype uses a new "Aero Sculpture" design language. The image shows a curvier MDX with more pronounced wheel arches and an updated version of the shield grille. The midsize crossover was last refreshed for model-year 2010.
We'll have more news closer to the car's launch in mid-January.
