Acura aimed at X6 or F10?

This is going to be more likely an alternative to the 3 or 5 series GT that BMW is planning.

Acura aims at BMW squarely with the SUV/SAV lineup; just forgot to build a coupe.

That's what makes it good looking.

I'm just pissed that all of these car companies are stealing from BMW. Mercedes just hired the designer that designed BMW's 7 series. Mercedes has also copied BMW's design with the current S class. The interiors of the current S class and upcoming E class were designed straight from BMW. Even the gear selector was copied. Now Acura is trying to copy BMW. The rear of the current Honda accord mimics BMW. I guess BMW is the benchmark.. LOL

all car manufacturers copy each other... bmw is not some revolutionary all original manufacturer from outerspace... It is just another car manufacturer who just started a potential co own partnership with mercedez.

Car companies build what the consumer wants.

What yo may want, millions of other may hate.

Common sense. Supply and demand.

Think out of your brains and look beyond your needs as they rarely line up with consumer reality.

Sure, some more then others

Chinese automaker Shuanghuan is already selling cars that look uncannily like the BMW X5 SUV and the Mercedes Smart in China. But dare they unveil the two knockoffs at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto show, which starts on September 13 and runs through the 23rd? A Shuanghuan spokesperson says they don’t plan to show the cars in Frankfurt — contrary to reports swirling in Germany. (They were presented at the Shanghai motor show last year). But China Automobile, a German importer, says it will show the cars in Frankfurt. “Anything can happen,” says one Mercedes official.
