LIVE: 2014 Acura MDX Unveil
 Date: March 27, 2013 12:10

According to someone who's driven it, the big improvements on this car are in the driving experience and NVH. No word yet on when AcuraVAC will debut. That's a wrap folks,

Hmm, this presentation wasn't as good as last year's RLX unveiling, but then again the MDX is already a success so less need for pomp.

Production starts next month.

Ooh, rear entertainment system gets a wide screen.

The subtle curves in the sheet metal look good in person. Not easy to see in silver though. Front overhang is not bad.

275 pound weight reduction (on AWD apparently).

First car developed in Ohio wind tunnel, resulting in 17% reduction in drag.

MDX fwd version designed for warm weather customers.

Jeff Conrad giving the presentation. Talking about last year's intros. Supposedly the ILX is only luxury car in top 10 cars in consideration for young buyers. Good news but the Germans are coming (A3 and CLA).

We're live at the launch of the production 2014 Acura MDX. What does Acura have in store for the anchor of its product lineup?
