Acura‘s all-new MDX crossover was caught on camera by our spy photographer, giving us a preview of the iconic car-based utility vehicle, albeit in a heavy layer of clothing.

Unfortunately, there wasn’t any skin showing, but the new Acura is expected to hit showrooms in 2013 as a 2014 model. Still, we can see that the new model will probably have a refreshed shape, and doubtless styling updates to boot. Despite not being able to actually see the new version, it’s a reasonable assumption that it will share traits with the 2013 RLX.

Aside from a new look, the upcoming car is expected to share a powertrain with the RLX, meaning there will two engine options in the lineup. The standard V6 will remain, but a hybrid model is also coming that will feature the new electric Super Handling all-wheel drive we’re looking forward to in the new NSX supercar.

    Acura is really going to have to step up its game to keep up with the new Infiniti JX... although the JX CVT is pretty lame.

    This thing is shaped like a Tahoe or something. This is terrible. I hope they revise this look.
