Acura at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show

Acura NSX Concept

Acura NSX Concept Beijing Motor Show Debut

It should be a busy stretch for Acura dealerships in North America this year with the arrival of the 2013 RDX earlier this month and the 2013 ILX on sale May 22nd. Acura looks to follow suit in China with the introduction of the same two models scheduled to go on sale this fall. The RDX and ILX will join Acura China’s currrent lineup which consists of the RL, TL, MDX and ZDX.

Acura/Honda released a few press images today for the 2012 Beijing Motor Show where the RDX, ILX and the NSX Concept will make its Chinese debut. The images of the NSX Concept are essentially the same we’ve already seen, but rendered with a new red paint color. I’ve read the NSX is indeed displayed at the show with the new paint job, but I haven’t seen any images or videos yet.

The one image of the Chinese spec RDX shows it will get the clear turn-signal treatment as well as headlamp washers which seem to be standard on the Chinese models.

Take a peek at the gallery below for a closer look.

Acura looks to continue their growth in China with the addition of the next generation RDX. China Car Times has caught the RDX protoype testing in China just a week away from its big debut in Detroit.

Covered in the usual “camouflage” print, a few small tears to the front show just enough to reveal a refreshed grille and a peek at the new headlights. It’s looking like the new RDX will adopt a few styling cues from the current MDX which seems to be working well for Acura in the midsize SUV segment.

If true, the RDX will joining the TL, RL, MDX and the recently launched ZDX in the Chinese market.

Remember to mark January 9th on your calendar, because it’s going to be a big day for Acura at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. Keep it on Acura Connected for all the latest updates.

Acura China’s 2012 ZDX

Acura China’s ZDX

The ZDX is officially the newest member of Acura China’s lineup with complete model information and photos now available on their website. The “all-terrain coupe” is the fourth model for Acura China in its fifth year, joining the RL, TL and MDX. 

It doesn’t look as though the Chinese ZDX is much different from the North American model with its 3.7-liter V-6 engine, SH-AWD, 6-speed automatic transmission and many of the other standard features. It does appear to have a few exterior differences similar to the Chinese MDX. Clear front turn signals and standard headlight washers are common for the Chinese models, as well as slightly modified rear tail lights with additional sections of clear lenses(pictured below).
