2011 Acura ZDX Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, The ZDX is Acura’s all-new crossover luxury vehicle and blends coupe-like styling and driving dynamics with the versatility of an SUV. Conceived by Acura’s first female designer, the sharp ZDX flaunts sweeping curves and dramatic angularity, in addition to an all-glass panoramic roof from that is said to be the longest continuous glass surface in the automotive industry.
The Acura ZDX looks like a chopped-top, backswept version of the Acura MDX. The ZDX hosts a 3.7-Liter V-6 motor under the hood joined to a 6-speed automatic gearbox, just like the MDX. The car also sports the Super Handling All Wheel Drive by Acura too. The primary difference between the two cars is that the MDX has a three-row, seven-seater configuration, and it is bigger than the ZDX since the latter seats two passengers and has limited cargo space.
While the ZDX sports as many as five seatbelts, do not let that fool you; the second-row of seating is somewhat cramped leaving enough room for mid-sized children and adults. The cargo capacity is sparse, but the rear seats fold down if you need a bit more cargo room.
The ZDX is clearly not a family-oriented vehicle; it is a coupe-like, luxury sedan with superior styling and AWD. A driver and one passenger can be seated comfortably inside. This car is ideal for the car buyer that doesn’t desire a wagon configuration, and the ZDX competes against sporty BMWs.
Deeply drawn body panels, bold wheel arches, and concealed door handles make it almost possible to forget about the nose – although the chiseled grille works well here. The ZDX is one of Acura’s boldest statements to date. Satin alloy trim, loop pile carpeting and a broad expanse of leather across the dash are dramatic flourishes to this otherwise typical Acura interior. Cargo capacity is heavily compromised, rivaling that of a Honda Fit.
The ZDX’s powertrain is one of Acura’s best. All 300 horsepower and 270 pound feet of torque are sent to the ground via an all-new 6-speed automatic. SH-AWD helps this deceptively long coupe carve canyons with surprising aplomb. A tight chassis and finely resolved electric power steering conspire to make this the best handling SUVesque vehicle Acura has ever made.
