Acura’s CDX Compact Crossover is Getting a Hybrid Variant

Acura and Honda have announced their lineup for the 2018 Beijing Motor Show.

Honda will be hosting a joint booth with GAC Honda and Dongfeng Honda, with GAC Honda debuting a new China-exclusive electric vehicle concept. Dongfeng Honda will also have a world premiere in the form of an all-new sedan concept.

Acura meanwhile has confirmed it will unveil the CDX Hybrid. It’s unclear what will power the hybrid version of the CDX, but reports say it will likely use the 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine found in the standard CDX, pairing it with a single electric motor. Expect total system output to be around 160 horsepower.

The Acura CDX is currently sold in China and is similar to the Honda HR-V offered in North America, albeit more luxurious. It was first introduced at the Beijing Motor Show two years ago and now a new hybrid version will join the lineup.

Late last year, a patent filing was published in the U.S. for the CDX’s design, suggesting the Japanese automaker could bring the compact crossover stateside. With the segment showing no signs of slowing down, it would be little surprise if the CDX eventually ended up in North America.
