    Acura Passes On A Subcompact Crossover

    The compact luxury market is heating up once again with crossovers taking the spotlight. Automakers such as BMW, Buick, and Mercedes-Benz are either readying or selling new subcompact models. One automaker you will not be seeing compete in this arena is Acura.

    “We’re pretty confident with our current offerings. We think the MDX and RDX cover the whole spectrum of those kinds of buyers,” said Acura Canada VP Ryan Kelly.

    Kelly went onto say that Acura's current lineup of crossovers is versatile enough to deliver a luxury experience for those who want five or seven seats.

    Whether this is course Acura goes or not remains to be seen.

    no, it will be a Honda, and be cheaper than the Encore, and thus sell way more.

    A Honda version to target the Chevy Trax and Ford EcoSport would make sense also.

    And while it sells ton's people will not complain about it's sardine tightness that cannot really deliver comfortably real humans.

    A coworker has a new RDX and while he loves it he also said anyone over 5'8" should not bother due to how tight it is. Course he and his wife are both in the 5'5" zone.
