What to expect
The 2012 North American International Auto Show kicks off next week in Detroit! For those who can't wait, here's a preview of what we can expect from the big players at the show that kicks off on January 9th.
Acura's New Line
Acura is bringing three new models to the show, two production models and one exciting concept. A new compact sedan, dubbed the ILX, is based on the Honda Civic platform. The second production model debuting is the next-generation RDX crossover, which, like its predecessor, is based on the same platform as the Honda CR-V. The new RDX will ditch its current turbocharged four-cylinder for a more fuel efficient V6.
The more exciting Acura debuting in Detroit is the NSX concept, which is supposed to be a preview of the next-generation Acura NSX. It's being reported that the concept will feature a hybrid powertrain, with a V6 powering the rear wheels and two electric motors powering the front wheels.
