Scoop: 2014 Acura MDX Filmed Leaving Test Facility with Current MDX and BMW X5

|

There's a brand-new Acura MDX on its way, but if you have been following CarScoop on a regular basis, you probably already know that as we have shared with you spy photos of the three-row crossover.

What you may have not seen yet is the camouflaged prototype of the Acura model on film and on the move.

The 2014 MDX was recorded on camera as it was exiting Acura's test facility in Germany, followed by a current generation of the MDX and a BMW X5, no doubt for comparison purposes as the two luxury crossovers are similar in size and even closely priced in their base trims in the States.

Acura's redesigned proposal in the premium crossover segment will have a somewhat crisper exterior styling and offer improved interior space thanks to a longer body.

It is possible that Acura will offer the next MDX with Honda's updated 310hp V6 as well as a hybrid powertrain matching a 3.5-liter direct-injected VTEC V6 to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission and up to three electric motors.

The estimated time of arrival for the 2014MY MDX is the second half of next year.
