Spied in the Desert! 2014 Acura MDX

We've already seen MDX test mules circulating the Nürburgring and the surrounding German countryside, but American spy photographers captured exposures of a 2014 MDX test mule undergoing stress testing in the desert yesterday. Below is the text and 5 photos from KGP.

Acura engineers ventured to the heat of the California desert to test a prototype for the 2014 MDX. The 120-degree heat encouraged the removal of some of the MDX's front camouflage, giving us our clearest look yet at its grille, and lower air-intake. The new grille looks very similar to the grille-work spotted on prototypes for Acura's all-new RLX.

Our latest shots of the MDX give us a new sense what appears to be a more arched, flowing greenhouse. While there are still some sharp-edged elements visible through the camouflage, we suspect that the new MDX may have a bit more fluidity to its shape.

BONUS


Brenda Priddy caught up with the MDX as it was being loaded up on the transporter, so she was only able to snag the 2 bonus shots seen below.
