New Entry-Level Crossover Acura ADX Teased for 2025

Acura’s SUVs may not have the same luxury appeal as models from Lexus and other brands, but their sporty appearance and spirited performance have helped them stay relevant. In 2025, the automaker is expanding its lineup with the introduction of the ADX, a crossover based on the Integra that will serve as the new entry-level option for Acura.

Joining the existing RDX, MDX, and the new electric ZDX crossover, the ADX will feature a turbocharged engine and will be positioned below the RDX as a smaller and more affordable choice to attract younger customers. With the addition of a fourth SUV, Acura’s lineup will now consist of six models, still fewer than the extensive and somewhat repetitive offerings from Lexus.

Emile Korkor, Acura’s AVP of national sales, stated, “The 2025 Acura ADX will expand our SUV lineup and serve as a new gateway model to capitalize on the success of the Integra, making Acura a sought-after brand for a new generation of buyers. With the introduction of the ADX and the all-electric ZDX, Acura will have SUVs covering everything from A to Z.”

While Acura did not provide any other specific details about the ADX, it is expected to have a starting price in the mid-to-high $30,000 range, positioning it between the Integra and the RDX. If the ADX’s powertrain is similar to the Integra’s, it is likely to offer lively performance, but there is also potential for a hybrid option sourced from Honda’s Civic or other models in the future.

In addition to the new SUVs, Acura has updated the flagship MDX for 2025, including refreshed styling with new wheel choices for certain trims and the replacement of the touchpad infotainment system with a new 12.3-inch touchscreen, which early reviews suggest is a significant improvement.
