This sporty three-row crossover SUV that offers seats to seven heads has gone through several upgrades from the looks. A new change includes a new headlight and grille styling on the front end. The latest standard equipment that this car will offer to the market this year is the electronic parking brake, capless fueling, auto high beams, AcuraWatch for an effective safety aid which was optional in previous versions, and additional USB ports for connectivity.

The company has always been a concern with the drivers and passenger's comfort and efficiency when it comes to the utility of the vehicle. They have created this model with a decent cargo space. It might not be the biggest space in line with the other SUVs; the seats can be easily folded whenever not in use to have a much space area. Also, its nooks and crannies storage space is also a plus.

Also, an addition of a heated steering wheel is included. This vehicle is also offering an entertainment package that also comes with technology.

It can provide a horsepower of 290 and a torque of 267 lb-ft. The engine is matched with an automatic transmission in nine-speed that can handle a front or an all-wheel drive. With its upgrades and some additional features, this car can't be ignored.
