Last week Acura dropped a techno-looking teaser of the next-generation MDX exterior. Well, today they’re showing a less-obscure teaser of the new SUV’s interior, which is shaping up to be a reasonable step up from today’s Acura MDX.
In the teaser video (below) Acura is surprisingly forthcoming about the next-generation MDX interior, leaving little to the imagination with it. Unsurprisingly, the overall design theme follows the all-new TLX and RDX with a lower dash panel than the outgoing MDX. Said panel is supposedly “hand-wrapped” in leather that features French stitching. The premium vibe extends to seats with a quilted design on all three rows and open-pore wood trim.
Of course, there’s a very large infotainment display at the center of the dash panel, which will be connected to an ELS Studio 3D sound system with 25 speakers. The gauge cluster appears to be a singular display in the teaser as well. All of these additions center around the MDX featuring Acura Precision Cockpit.
This obvious step up in premium amenities comes as little surprise. Acura has hinted that they view the MDX as the brand’s flagship model (outside of the NSX, of course) as sedans–like its RLX–fade away in favor of SUVs.
Acura is slated to reveal the Acura MDX Prototype (read: a thinly-veiled version of the production MDX) next week on Oct. 14th.
