Mystery SUV


This picture has been posted around the web for a little while, but nobody seems to know for sure what it is.
Most people are guessing this is either an Acura RDX or the next MDX.
I don’t think so. It doesn’t look anything like what we already know of these 2 cars.

My guess would be the next Highlander from Toyota. That’s the only thing that could be that advanced in the development phase. (it is due in the fall).
Or is it something not sold in the US?

What do you think?

Just for good measure, I added these pictures showing what we know about the RDX and new MDX.
I still think they do not look like the SUV on the picture above. Just look at the C pillar.
It has to be something else…

  1. It is the Acura MDX replacement. Look at the rear taillights. There is a reason they look the same as an RDX’s taillights….they are related.

  2. Yeah, it definitely has that Acura taillight design. The MDX is about ripe for a replacement. My aunt had one for a couple years and sitting in one felt amazingly new at the time, but now the dash and centre stack look cheap and outdated (except for the giant LCD screen in the middle of the centre stack controls) compared to newer competition.

  3. if that’s the MDX, then i feel sad for acura.

    too similar to RDX.

    my guy tells me the MDX is going to be boring.

  4. “Vince You’re an idiot.”

    Tell me something I don’t know.

    Then look up the illustrations Acura just released of the MDX concept. And keep your eyes open when you do…

  5. who cares about these pieces of krap
    these guys acn’t even use proper name for their cars like malibu, monte carlo, pacifica etc…
    is their english that bad they can’t even fake it fir the us marjket

  6. Im pretty sure it’s the RDX, but it is still possible they changed the MDX pillar for better rear visibility. My bet is the RDX though. Vince, It is definitely not a Toyota, it has clear Honda/Acura design.

  7. You can’t base what a car will look like base on an illustration…but even if you must, look at the rims..look at the roofline. that is an MDX

  8. I have to say it would be the production version of the MDX. Sure the sketch looks a bit different (the D pillar in particular) but Honda just like to “spice up” their concept version a tiny bit compared to the production version.

    douche dont you even look at what you type ? and you have the balls to comment on someones knowledge of the english language ?
    Either learn how to spell or dont post anymore, we all would enjoy that one !

  10. Whatever it is, it’s not a Toyota. The styling does match any of Toyota’s models, and doesn’t match Toyota’s design language.

    I’d say it’s either the new MDX, RDX, or as a wild guess, the Subaru Tribeca, although I’d likely be wrong on that last one.

  11. Based on the wheel size, as well as the apparent size of the driver in relation to the windows, I would say it is the RDX. If it was an MDX, then it has 20’s on it.

  12. It has been fun watching all the Acura MDX & RDX guessing.

    But the Mazda bloggers have won — it IS the new CX-9.

    Some special red reflecting tape was added to the tailights to help disguise the actual look, but the rest of the car is authentic.

    You’ll see better when the real deal is dished out in a day or two.

    Now to all of you who have bad-mouthed Vince, please apologize — and play nice!!!

  13. douche bag your an idiot….Pieces of crap! remember that the MDX has the best resale value and residual value of any midsize luxury SUV. Drive one very nice drive. Lets see an SRX match that that car has horrible resale and residual value.

  14. The fact that everyone looks at the same photo and thinks it could be from any brand is just more proof that there is very little originality in design these days.

    Everyone seems to be building a “Murano with a different D pillar.”

  15. I would just like to point out the Murano’s design wasn’t original either. It was a play off of the Lexus RX.

  16. I’m convinced its the next RDX. Simply slightly deformed because of the picture. Same wheels as prototype spotted earlier on the blog in March.

  17. I’m convinced its the next RDX. Simply slightly deformed because of the picture. Same wheels as prototype spotted earlier on the blog in March.

  18. I’m convinced its the next RDX. Simply slightly deformed because of the picture. Same wheels as prototype spotted earlier on the blog in March.

  19. This is BOT a Mazda CX-9.
    Look at the Mazda picture towards the bottom of the page.The rear view mirror is on the door, away from the base of the windshield…
    It is something else…

  20. definitely not a CX-9. The rims give it away. I enlarged the pic…it is an Acura MDX. the CX-9 has a bloated look compared to what’s a bit of a svelte physique in this SUV. The CX-9 rims are very different from this and this is definitely not an RDX, the RDX has different side mirrors and a different C pillar. It is the MDX, It is nothing more than a STRECHED version of this…the RDX
