'06 MDX Spy Shot(?)
 Date: July 17, 2004 14:03
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Brenda Priddy & Company
 Credibility Rating: N/A


Spy photographer Brenda Priddy caught this MDX test mule undergoing hot weather testing yesterday, but the strange thing is that it appears to be almost identical to a current MDX. Why would Acura be testing and hiding something that's been in showrooms for four years?

It's hard to see in this photo, but Brenda says that the entire side of this vehicle is clad in vinyl. The only things that appear mildly different are the fuel filler opening and perhaps the headlights. The rest of the hard points appear virtually identical.

For comparison purposes, I've included a shot of a 2003 MDX press car that we had. It's the only side view photo I could find of a production MDX. The mule appears to have a front clip very similar to the 2004 MDX.
