Acura considering a compact crossover for the US market

Article by Christian A., on January 16, 2014

As you may know already, Honda will introduce the Vezel a.k.a. Fit-based utility vehicle in the United States later this year but it appears that Acura wants one too. A concept version of the upcoming vehicle was already shown in the form of the Acura SUV-X Concept.

Still, Honda said that the SUV-X is a global concept and will target the Chinese market as Acura will start local production and sales in China by 2016.

Asked if the Acura compact crossover could debut in North America, Honda spokesman Yuka Abe said that the carmaker is currently deciding what markets outside China will get it.

The new Acura SUV-X could be slotted below the RDS, which is currently company’s entry crossover and is based on the CR-V. Acura aims to take on small utility vehicles such as the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3.
