Yet another spy shot. Could this one be an RDX?

Suddenly it seems to be spy photo season. This latest photo was submitted to us by TOV reader 'smarijono'. He was thinking that it was another angle of the MDX mule that was caught by Brenda Priddy.

After reviewing this image, we have our doubts. First of all, while the exhaust tips definitely look like '04 MDX exhaust outlets, this vehicle appears narrower in relation to its height than the MDX. It's hard to tell from this photo if it's even an Acura, for that matter. But if it's an RDX, it seems a bit early to be spotting them in what appears to be a relatively finished state (albeit disguised with parachutes). We're not expecting them in showrooms until 2006, but perhaps it could appear as an early '07 model in early 2006. We could be wrong, though. We're waiting to see what the TOV readers think.

Thanks to 'smarijono' for sharing this photo.



RDX Preview?

UPDATE: It seems that this might be a photo of the upcoming 2005 Kia Sportage. See the discussions below for evidence.
