Honda to shift production of SUV to China from US amid trade war

Japanese automaker aims to avoid higher auto tariffs

Honda expects the new RDX to be 20% cheaper than the previous version, which is priced at 399,800 yuan ($57,400) in China.

TOKYO --Honda Motor will increase output of its Acura luxury vehicles in China by switching to local production of a new version of an SUV model, rather than importing it from the United States.

Sales of the new China-made Acura RDX will start by the end of this year.
