Acura's redesigned MDX includes a Type S variant that we've just tested. The sportiest and somehow most comfortable version of the stylish mid-size SUV pushes the brand into true luxury territory.

Lotus is just weeks out from revealing its Type 132 electric SUV, but the design may have already been revealed via patent drawings that surfaced in Australia. The SUV is one of four new models Lotus will launch by the end of 2026, all of them with electric power.

Mini has three crossovers in the works including a redesigned Countryman due in 2023. Our latest spy shots show a prototype for the new Countryman, which will be offered in both internal-combustion and electric guises.
