Looks really sleek and good. The grill and also some angular lines I hope will not be there.

I have always liked Acura cars, but for their recent "beak" nose across the range. That thing looks hideous.

Acura's answer to the BMW X6?
I love the sharp features!The MDX & RDX are both very suave looking SUVs,and this one sure shares the lines.

Acura, seems to have been running full steam ahead with the CUV project]. This should not be too hard of a car to assemble for Acura. It just needs to rummage through the Honda spare parts bin, and it should find everything but the bodywork. By the time the production car hits the streets in 2010 we would guess that it would be using the 300 hp 3.6-liter V6 from the MDX, or the 200 hp 3.5-liter V6 unit from the TSX V6/Accord V6. The suspension may not even be changed much from the MDX, considering it is one of the most car-like SUVs on the market.
While a vehicle that doesn’t fully excel at being a sedan, coupe or SUV doesn’t have huge appeal to us, Acura knows its customers. This will be the company’s big new thing to show off, and may even have a concept version ready for the New York Auto Show next month.
