The Acura CDX was one of the most popular mid-size SUVs in 1990s. The compact crossover is also popular today despite the emergence of more sophisticated similar cars.

The American Honda Motor Company has revealed a new model which will go with the name, 2017 Acura CDX.
2017 Acura CDX – Special Features:
The automaker has already hinted at the use of the RDX and MDX nomenclature in the new CDX. The car will however borrow a lot of exterior features from Honda HR-V, but we expect inclusion of some sleeker features that will make it sportier. As for the size, the car will be bigger than the HR-V. A variety of colors will be available to suit specific styles of car shoppers.
If you haven’t seen true aggressive looks in a mid-size SUV, wait to see them in 2017 Acura CDX. These looks will be facilitated by a bigger grille, a cluster of LED headlights and a pronounced bumper. You will definitely love the rear side which will come with reshaped tail lights and a broader bumper.
The interior of 2017 Acura CDX will not disappoint any customer. The entire cabin will be crowned up with top quality materials and sophisticated components. We are looking forward to leather upholstered steering wheel and seats, and aluminum-accented body panels. The car is designed to accommodate 5 passengers and some luggage. Wait to enjoy advanced technology in the upcoming CDX. You should expect an updated infotainment system consisting of a wider touchscreen and a whole lot of controls. There will also be a GPS-based navigation system and connection options such as Smartphone integration and Bluetooth.
