The CDX is based on Honda's HR-V and is the first Acura model to be built in China

The Acura CDX SUV has made its debut at the Beijing motor show. The CDX is the first model to be built by Acura in China, and takes much of its design language from the Precision concept shown in Detroit earlier this year.

The CDX is geared towards young, affluent Chinese owners, and will be priced from around ¥250,000, or £26,683 when sales begin in July.

Underneath, the CDX sits on the same platform as the Honda HR-V. According to local reports, power will come from a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 180bhp and 177lb/ft of torque.

The CDX will be available in both front and four-wheel drive forms, and transmission options include an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic. The car will be built at parent company Honda's Guangzhou plant.

Acura’s Precision concept was intended to show how the design language of Honda’s US luxury arm would progress, and the CDX is the first model to show the language in action.
