2018 Acura CDX: Model Preview

, Senior Pricing Analyst - October 18, 2018

Model Preview

The Acura CDX was originally expected to be an all-new crossover for the 2018 model year. However, no official details have been released yet, and it appears doubtful whether the vehicle will be introduced before the end of 2018.

Not to be content with its already outstanding lineup of crossovers including the RDX and MDX, Acura was expected to venture further into the realm of compact crossovers with the CDX. The model was expected to become the brand's new entry-level crossover with underpinnings based on the Honda HR-V.

According to Automotive News, the CDX will likely be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and come with optional all-wheel drive. Challenges Acura faces with the CDX will likely center on providing the driving characteristics of a luxury performance brand on a platform originally used in the Fit hatchback.

Will the new powerplant provide enough pep to not come across as a rebadged HR-V? That remains to be seen.

This page will be updated as information becomes available.
