First-Ever Acura ADX Will Arrive Early Next Year

The first-ever Acura ADX, a new premium SUV, will debut in early 2025. Sitting alongside the award-winning Acura Integra, the turbocharged ADX will be positioned as another gateway to the Acura brand for young premium buyers.

  • Acura to add crossover at gateway of its SUV lineup, joining RDX, MDX and ZDX
  • First-ever Acura ADX will build on success of the award-winning Integra
  • Not much is known about the ADX, but we think it will share a lot of DNA with both the Honda HR-V and the Civic that model is based on.
  • We'll have to wait for specifics on pricing and power figures, but we expect the ADX to land between the $32,995 Integra sedan and the $45,700 RDX crossover.

Acura Wins Sebring

 After 12 hours of hard-fought IMSA endurance racing it was Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Global on top, with the #40 Acura ARX-06 taking the honors in the 2024 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

Starting third, the #40 crew of Deletraz, Jordan Taylor and Colton Herta led just 18 laps en route to victory, but a thrilling late-race pass in GT traffic with just four laps to go was all they needed to catapult themselves to the win.

On the way to said victory, Deletraz also set the fastest lap time in the IMSA GTP class of 1:49.497. With tonight's win, Acura moves into an early-season three-way tie for the IMSA GTP Manufacturers' Championship; while drivers Deletraz, Jordan Taylor and Herta are tied for first in the drivers' title chase.

The sister #10 Acura ARX-06 driven by Ricky Taylor, Filipe Albuquerque and Brendon Hartley led 55 laps on the day before losing a lap in pitlane after the team noticed smoke trailing from the rear of the car. Thankfully, it was a quick fix and the #10 crew was able to continue to the end where they would wind up fifth.
