I'm hoping this will be a design hit for Acura. The new light elements are elegant and integrate well with the new grille treatment.

That actually shows a lot, I wonder if someone that has more time on their hands can capture the front and interior still shots.

What I see is a Huge Emblem on front with the DPG which is also quite a bit larger then the current car.

The interior looks like a huge improvement and the center screen is quite big and up higher, sort of floating.. maybe it pops out of dash like Audi A3, but I doubt it.

I agree with you. I think this looks very promising, and the grille looks way better on this than on the MDX. I also like what I see with the headlights as it appears it will more closely resemble the Precision Concept than the current Acuras on the road.

I just watched the teaser on Youtube where I could blow it up and watch it more slowly, and you can see tons of detail with the front of the car. The headlights appear to have 7 more sleek looking jewels and a more modern looking outline around the headlights.

Also, the engine hood is pretty neat and has some curved creases to it as opposed to linear creases. The grille is definitely longer and more stretched than what is on the current MDX, and I think that is a good thing as it seems to fit the overall design more.

The lowest point on the DPG appears to be softened a bit, too.

The only downside, is I can make out the seemingly obligatory chrome strip on the lower door.

Well that's a bit disappointing in terms of exterior styling. Having read the press release and whatnot, the words seem to hype up a grand redesign and huge improvements in terms of presence for the RDX. Looking at the video, it looks exactly like what you would expect an RDX with the Precision Craft grille slapped onto it would look like. The headlights are bigger and that's about all that stands out. I hope the whole package comes together better than the front end itself.

Did just that, only I adjusted the levels to make some of the darkened details more visible.

Thanks! I did that on my phone but am at work and have not been able to transfer over. I really think this design looks great so far. The front is vastly improved and the overall profile looks aggressive and sporty.

That's what I'm seeing here too. THe headlights look large, a la the RLX. Would be interesting to see how this gels together. However, the interior looks promising. It just looks more luxury, more sport with the center console raised up between driver and passenger rather than being level with the base of the seats. SOmething that small makes a huge difference, imo.

Regarding the interior, I wish Acura would move away from the gimmicky button shifter and return to a knob. Everything else looks nice inside.

I noticed the hood doesn't have the signature crease in the middle anymore. This was something Dave Marek mentioned he insisted on in one of the video interviews. Does that mean he was overruled or changed his mind? Glad it is gone as it contributed to the visual focus on the beak in a negative way.

Wish they didn't have to go with the floating roof look that everyone and their mom is doing. It just looks very Chevy Bolt-ish...for lack of a better description

I don't think the roof line is bad at all. Now if they had done the floating C-pillar like on the Lexus RX I would have been disappointed. I think everyone will be really surprised in a good way when this full reveal comes out.

As I look at the youtube video again in slow motion, including from the side profile, the stance and proportions of the vehicle reminds me of the Jaguar F-Pace a bit which is a good thing.

Shows the A-Spec steering wheel. I’m liking what I see and hear so far.

It looks very similar, but luckily all the functions have been moved to their usual locations to the 1st and 2nd spokes. I'm loving what looks like twin stitching all over it with the metal trim. Can't wait to see this all lite up!
