Roughly a year ago, Acura previewed a small crossover for the Chinese market, dubbed the SUV-X, that sparked rumors of an HR-V based crossover for Honda’s luxury brand. According to Autoguide.com, Honda has trademarked the “CDX” nameplate for automobiles, which suggests that the vehicle is one step closer to reality.

Aside from China, the United States is an obvious market for such a car, where Acura already enjoys a successful two-crossover lineup. A CDX could serve as a companion to the ILX and TLX, while allowing Honda to make fat margins off the Fit/HR-V platform. Aside from the BMW X1 and Audi Q3, the Buick Encore also represents a natural target for the CDX.

    With that beak on the front I would rather have an HR-V. I think it is a good idea but they need to do away with the beak and have less creases on the sides.

      No, then it would lose its distinctiveness and become just another CUV look-alike.

    Somewhere, a cartoon toucan just got very turned on.

    It is better to be less distinctive, lose the beak. I preferred the pre beak Acuras.

    Never cared much for overwrought design. And I know for sure, Honda can do simple design look good.
