Default Acura Unveils MD-X Sport Utility Concept Vehicle at NAIAS

Detroit, Mich. - Jan 03 —

Acura introduced its vision for the next
generation of sport utility vehicle with the MD-X concept SUV at the
2000 North American International Auto Show. Featuring advanced
technology and luxury amenities, the multi-dimensional MD-X concept
offers performance and handling with off-road capability and

"The MD-X concept is our interpretation of a no-compromise vehicle
with sports sedan performance and SUV functionality," said Dick
Colliver, executive vice president, Acura division. "The MD-X closely
reflects the direction and focus of our new SUV which goes on sale
this fall." The MD-X provides an advanced look at the technology and
utility concepts for the SUV of the future. Utilizing a sophisticated
powertrain that also will be environmentally responsible, the future
SUV will achieve excellent fuel efficiency with very low exhaust
emissions. Power will be transferred to all four wheels through a
state-of-the-art, automatic four-wheel-drive system for confident
on-road performance and reassuring off-road capability. The MD-X
features distinctive Acura styling cues, including the pentagram
front grille. The sleekly styled body complements the large diameter
18" wheels with specially designed Michelin tires, while a safari
size glass moonroof allows for "open-air" visibility. From the
inside, a large greenhouse provides passengers with a commanding view
of the outside surroundings, while four individual bucket seats and a
tri-color earth-tone leather interior creates a comfortable and
spacious passenger environment. In addition, brushed nickel accents,
along with integrated hardwood and sisal flooring complement the
Southwest-themed interior design. Ample storage space is available
through separate front and rear center consoles along with flat
passenger and rear cargo area floors for easy loading and access. As
with other Acura vehicles, the MD-X concept also features
state-of-the-art technology including a GPS satellite-linked
Navigation System. The MD-X's integrated Cellular Internet access
system rounds out the future technology equipment in this concept
SUV. The MD-X concept offers a glimpse at Acura's future
multi-dimensional SUV, due in showrooms this fall. To be assembled at
the Alliston, Ontario, Canada manufacturing facility, the future
Acura SUV will incorporate many of the MD- X's conceptual elements to
provide superior overall performance above any SUV currently
