Acura has announced plans to host the official unveiling of the 2016 RDX facelift next month in Chicago.

The second generation RDX compact crossover came out back in early 2012 and now it's about to receive a mid-cycle refresh bringing several styling and performance tweaks as well as additional luxury and safety equipment. Acura says the facelifted RDX will increase comfort and dynamics while the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels will be lowered.

Technical specifications have not been provided but we remind out the 2015MY RDX is powered exclusively by a V6 3.5-liter naturally aspirated engine producing 273 bhp (204 kW) and 251 lb-ft (340 Nm) sent to either a FWD or AWD layout through a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The 2016 Acura RDX facelift will be unveiled on February 12 at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.
