Didn't the new generation just roll out? Or was that a mid cycle refresh?

Ya I'm so sick of the Acura beak. I've liked most Acuras in the last while, EXCEPT the beak. Just ruins the car.

yeah it's only a few years old...guess it's not selling well...this upcoming one isn't a completely new design.

Still no panoramic roof!

They need to step their game up. A "luxury" suv like this should be standard or atleast have the option

The front continues to look messed up. I've lost faith in Honda's design.

whats with Honda going to fucking mini-van designs?

The Pilot used to be KINDA sporty.. kinda.. it still had an SUV image about it.. now it's a fucking mini Van

the MDX was even sportier, more of a luxury feel, competing with the body lines of the GL, X5, etc.

NOW IT"S A FUCKING MINI VAN...

Wow... am I the only one who wish they had kept the silver beak?

I mean... just when you thought Acura reached the absolute bottom in design with the beak, they replaced it with something uglier...

which is not a bad thing at all
I figured with lexus/acura trying to look sleekier will mean more European cues

meh I don't get the complaints...MDX was never a pretty car to begin with...just a fatter Honda Pilot

Well, it's based on the Odyssey's platform for one... Also, minivan designs are far more family friendly than the traditional SUV. I know the new Pilot is basically just a slightly redesigned Odyssey for people who are too stupid to look past the minivan stigma. And the MDX is basically just the luxury version of the Pilot, so...
