Honda Looking Into 2nd SUV for Acura

From the article: The additional vehicle, he said, would have to be smaller than the MDX. "For the lack of a better term," Mr. Elliott said what he is envisioning is "an entry-level Acura SUV that could appeal to younger, more performance-oriented consumers."

Note from Jeff: Based upon some grumblings I heard in Detroit, don't be surprised to see an Acura based upon the Element. This vehicle would likely share most of its underpinnings with the E, with perhaps some tricks borrowed from the IMA drivetrain of the RD-X Concept.
