Honda RD-X info from Germany
 Date: December 03, 2003 14:18

 Source: auto motor und sport
 Credibility Rating: 5


Auto Motor und Sport (a reliable German car magazine) says that Honda will introduce the Honda RD-X in Europe next fall (2004). It will have a 2.4 litre engine with up to 250hp(!!!) and space for 6 persons (3 also in the front seat row!).

They call it the MDX's little brother...

Babelfish Translation to English

(Look at the sketch on the site)

Editor's Note: My guess is that if it does in fact arrive with 250hp, it would involve some application of IMA (as has been rumoured), otherwise I'd be surprised to see more than 200hp from the 2.4L in an SUV application. Also, this reported introduction date is much earlier than has been mentioned in the past. Most reports target the RDX to appear in 2005 or 2006. jp
