On February 11th, Honda filed a request in the U.S. to have the “CDX” nameplate trademarked. Said trademark applies to “automobiles and their structural parts.”
With the recent launch of the Honda HR-V subcompact crossover, it makes sense for the Japanese manufacturer to produce a luxury version that would slot below the Acura RDX and MDX. In fact, AutoGuide is reporting that Honda is currently studying the feasibility of selling such a vehicle.
Considering that Acura sold nearly twice as many crossovers as sedans last year, bringing a new crossover into the fold is a logical decision.
