As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

The 2014 Acura MDX Concept which made its global debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January previewed the 7 seat performance SUV which would go on sale in mid-2013. Here is the real deal.

As expected, the production version stays true to the concept, except for the futuristic looking headlamp elements which have been replaced with more realistic units, which still look the part!
