    Spying: Acura MDX

    Acura is in the middle of giving their lineup a bit of a refresh. Motor Authority got their hands on some spy shots of the next model undergoing some changes, the MDX.

    The MDX appears to be keeping the seven-seat layout and will share a good amount of styling cues previewed by the recent 2013 RLX Concept, including the bread-slicer grille and a sharper bumper.

    The next MDX could also be sharing powertrains with production RLX. The base engine would be a a direct-injected 3.5L V6 coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Horsepower and torque are expected to eclipse the current MDX's 300 HP and 270 lb-ft of torque.

    The other powertrain would be the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD delivering 370 HP thanks to three electric motors combined with the 3.5L V6.

    The next MDX is expected to be introduced next year.

    That Madame Guillotine grill is turning people away from the brand. I see lower sales for this model because of its inherent ugliness, regardless of the merits that accompany the MDX.

    I always thought the current Acura crossovers were ugly...if this looks more like the new RDX I'd say it will be a major improvement...
