2018 Acura CDX

China car show hosted a premiere of something we can see as 2018 Acura CDX. Well, this model wasn’t confirmed yet, although it was expected in 2017 too. According to current information, CDX crossover is coming into Chinese market only. However, recently some information appeared that company is reconsidering decision. By not launching it in US and Canada, great loss is certain. Nevertheless, this market is demanding. Because of that, Acura will take time with launching, and prolong it for 2018.  With some extra time, 2018 CDX can be ready for major stage in North America.

Upcoming 2018 Acura CDX will be special model because of its engine. Company announced that crossover is getting factory fitted turbocharger powertrain. This is interesting, because after first generation of RDX, no other Acura used this kind of unit. Displacement should be 1.5-l DOHC with VTEC system and turbocharger. It sends about 180 hp through 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. Gearbox features SportShift system. Power is further sent to front wheels, by default, or all wheels optionally. Furthermore, new CDX crossover offers Super Handling AWD. Although other models are considering hybrid variant, this SUV will come with only petrol drivetrain.

2018 Acura CDX release and price

The Honda HR-V is one of the leaders in compact crossover class. Its sibling, 2018 Acura CDX is going to premium segment of tiny SUVs. Price can’t be under HR-V’s, so we believe Acura will offer its product for around $22,000. Its release date depends on development. However, since we don’t have any information about it yet, its arrival could be scheduled for 2018.

    I’m waiting waiting waiting for the Acura CDX to be released in Canada! I love the size of the Honda HRV, but unfortunately the engine doesn’t have enough power for me. I’m hoping the CDX is released with a turbo engine (V6 would be even better!) and it will be sufficient for my “heavy foot”. (I’m used to driving a V6.) Please post a release date ASAP. TB

      Acura began selling the CDX sub compact crossover in China, and now it’s thinking of bringing the model to the U.S. but the decision is not final yet.
