With the crossover segment continuing to grow in North America, Acura is thinking about adding the CDX to its lineup. The Acura CDX went on sale in China last year and rides on the same platform underpinning the Honda HR-V.

Honda May Build A Two-row Pilot Crossover On A Shorter Wheelbase

Honda may build a two-row Pilot crossover on a shorter wheelbase

According to WardsAuto, Honda has a new crossover on the way. The news outlet says the company will build a short-wheelbase version of the current Pilot SUV, and production will begin September of next year. Such an SUV would have a lower price, fewer seats, and compete with similar-sized crossovers including the Nissan Murano, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, and Ford Edge.

Honda certainly has space in its lineup for a two-row, midsize SUV, both physically and price-wise. There's about $6,000 worth of breathing room between the compact CR-V's base price of about $24,000 and the large Pilot's roughly $30,000 price. The two crossovers' lengths differ by about 14 inches as well. With that in mind, it wouldn't be crazy to expect this predicted SUV to split the difference of both numbers with a price of about $27,000 and a length of around 187 inches. This hypothetical SUV wouldn't step on the toes of existing Honda models, and it would give Honda another offering in a crossover market that shows no signs of cooling off anytime soon.
