    Shanghai 2013: Acura SUV-X Concept

    Acura Exhibits World Premiere of the "Acura Concept SUV-X" at Auto Shanghai 2013
    Honda Media

    SHANGHAI, China, April 20, 2013 - Acura today exhibited the world premiere of a design concept model, the Acura Concept SUV-X, at Auto Shanghai 2013 (the 15th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, press day: April 20, public days: April 23 - 29).

    Acura Concept SUV-X

    The Acura Concept SUV-X is a global concept vehicle for a small SUV developing primarily for the Chinese market. This is the first time for Acura to introduce the world premiere of a concept model outside of North America. Emotional and sharp styling and driving performance, together with the environmental performance of a small vehicle and excellent utility of an SUV are all fused together at a high level in this vehicle. Acura is planning to begin local production and sales in China of a mass-production model based on this concept vehicle for its market in about next three years.

    The front does not look right to me. I think I will need to see more photos before deciding if i like it or not. At the moment I feel not.

    All that side surfacing - odd. The lines are droopy and don't seem terribly well related to one another.

    On the other hand, perhaps to the Asian eye, they're beautiful. We're starting to see that - design motifs that don't follow the Western love of flow for the kinds of squiggles and turns Asian aesthetics embrace. Witness the D pillar on the Infinity JX, for instance. The line slows back, then kicks forward and then back again. Very, very Asian.

    The Japanese always had to think of Western markets, and so ultimately followed a Western aesthetic. But with the opening and rise of China, that's no longer the case. And we're starting to see the interesting and not necessarily pleasing results.
