Acura Teases Us With Crossover Shots...This Time With No Flashlight

You might recall protoypes of this vehicle zipping around Death Valley at night with the engineers shining lights at photogs in a very ineffective attempt to thwart pictures from being taken.


Well, now that the vehicle is progressing towards showrooms, we are being officially teased by this "concept." I use the term concept very loosely because there won't be much of a difference between the model we see in New York and the one that you will be able to buy. This Acura model and a squared off version for Honda called the Crosstour will be plying the highways and byways very soon.

What's missing from these shots is any clear view of the grille, arguably the most offensive element of current Acura products.

I applaud any people carrier than a) isn't body on frame and b) sports a hatch. Of course, the swoopy looking rear will ruin cargo capacity, but I'll take whatever I can get. I just hope that the Crosstour doesn't sport the same crappy interior plastics that recent Hondas have been showing up with.
