After a bit of teasing over the past week or so, today we were introduced to the all-new fourth-generation 2021 Acura MDX Prototype. That last designation means the final production version could still be somewhat different than the SUV presented today, but this concept looks virtually ready to go.
The new MDX takes the mantle of flagship model in the Acura lineup, and as such Acura put a ton into the overhaul for the new generation, touting it as the most premium, performance-focused and technologically sophisticated SUV in the brand’s history.
The new design and premium interior of the new MDX is thus bolstered by a host of new Acura technologies, including an all-new performance-focused platform with MDX’s first-ever double wishbone front suspension. We’ll also see, later on in 2021, the first Type S SUV in the history of Acura.
“The new MDX marks a turning point for Acura as our new flagship and the most far-reaching effort yet to deliver on our Precision Crafted Performance brand promise. We knew we needed to deliver something more emotional and premium with performance at its core. This new MDX builds on the past 20 years of success and elevates the model to an even stronger position in the market.”
