I’m a firm believer that, come the year 2025, the climate will have changed our landscape, and the utility element of the sports utility vehicle will be more needed than ever. Aggressive, in-control and safe, are attributes that are heavily needed in such a vehicle and the ACURA NEX by David Pichla & Jessica Suh gives us exactly that, and a little more. Envisioning the future of ACURA to be Autonomous, Performative and Driven, Pichla and Suh have strived to depict this through the ultimate all-weather terrain beast that is NEX.
With a similar aesthetic to a not-yet-Bladerunner-era concept, you can see yourself strapping in here and confidently tackling whatever the road ahead holds for you, especially if there is no road. The striking neon inspired headlights and taillights accentuate the unique design of this concept while keeping in line with an edgy surface design that really makes this concept pop. The higher-than-average height of the body gives the vehicle a lighter feel than most SUVs, and the wheels themselves look to have an almost indestructible appeal. For the ever-changing landscape moving forward, this is something I’m sure we could all use.
