The Passport is poised to fit between the CRV and Pilot.
Looking at the tech specs for the RDX, it fits somewhat between the CRV and the Pilot. After seeing some other spy photos, it makes me think this is basically an RDX with Honda interior trimmings.

I think the RDX is an Acura spec'd platform (which is probably based on the Accord/Civic platform). So technically there can not be a "Honda" version.

The RDX used to be the CRV cousin, but this generation it is no longer the case.

Technically there can be a "Honda" version. As you stated the current RDX is likely based on the accord/civic platform. The Passport could very well use the same platform or slightly modified version of that platform. I haven't seen anything from Honda specifically stating it was using the Pilot/Ridgeline/Odyssey platform for the Passport. Most of us assume they will be, but we can still be proven wrong on the 27th.

So while the RDX/CRV pair occurred in the past, the future could very well be RDX/Passport.

I think it will be bigger, certainly as wide as the Pilot obviously.

Acura started moving away from honda-shared platforms with Acura dedicated RDX platform and I think it is working well for RDX.

So, I don't think Passport is the honda skinned RDX, although it may be similar in size.

I agree...the RDX has separated itself from the Honda brand. Perhaps this Passport will have similar dimensions....but in terms of the rest, I don't see this as a Honda version of the RDX. I do see this as going after the likes of the Nissan Murano though.

It has been a long time that nothing " exciting" come out from Honda/Acura , The new RDX is basically resurrect the Honda brand. If honda rebadge the RDX ,I will sell mine and buy me a lexus
