Acura ADX Confirmed – Acura’s Next Crossover Will Be A Smaller, Integra Sibling

With a lineup that includes the MDX, RDX, and ZDX, you’d think Honda’s luxury wing would be on par as crossovers go. However, and ratio of small sales volume Compared to the figures leading Honda, Acura appeals to a very specific market of buyers. The brand hopes to expand that.

To do that, Acura seems to be thinking a little. On Tuesday, the luxury brand confirmed the upcoming unveiling of its ADX crossover model. ADX will be Acura’s new name, but the basis of the subcompact crossover model may not be all that novel. That’s because Acura says the ADX will “build on the success” of the legendary Integra sedan, creating a family tree that leads from the Honda Civic. Details are scarce about the platform and similarities to its sedan siblings, but Acura’s message about the incoming crossover is clear.

“The 2025 Acura ADX will add a fourth SUV to our lineup and a new entry-level model ready to build on the incredible success of the Integra, helping make Acura the ultimate brand for a new generation of buyers,” said Emile Korkor, vice president of Acura. National Acura dealership. “With the first-ever ADX and all-electric ZDX, Acura’s lineup will have SUVs covered from A to Z.”

It’s also possible that the Civic Si-derived 200-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine could find a home in the new crossover. Acura confirmed that the ADX will pack some sort of turbocharged powertrain, but details beyond that are scant. Aimed at younger paying buyers, we suspect the ADX will sway toward the smaller end of Acura’s lineup, similar to the Honda HR-V. As such, Acura will likely aim to compete with models such as the Lexus UX, Infiniti’s QX50, and the Audi Q3 in the niche, luxury crossover segment.

Pricing, production time, and official powertrain details have yet to be confirmed. Positioned between the $32,995 Integra and the $45,700 RDX, the Acura ADX should split the difference close to the Integra. However, Acura says we can expect more details about the ADX and an official launch early next year.
