If standout styling is high on your list of attributes that a vehicle in this class must possess, move ZDX to the top of your shopping list. With standard all-wheel drive and plenty of amenities, ZDX is a comfortable, capable choice; but it lacks practicality with its small back seat and poor rear visibility. If you’re looking for a sporty, yet practical SUV in this class, Acura’s own MDX likely will better fit your needs.
Introduced for 2010, the premium midsize Acura ZDX was the latest addition to the lineup from Honda’s luxury brand. Seating five, ZDX was a four-door hatchback with a raised suspension and standard all-wheel drive. The sole powertrain teamed a 300-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. Maximum towing capacity was 1,500 pounds. Major competitors to the ZDX included the BMW X6, Infiniti FX, and Range Rover Sport.
Standard safety features included antilock braking, traction control, an antiskid system, curtain-side airbags, and front-side airbags. Leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, a rearview camera, a power tailgate, and a wireless cell-phone link were standard. Two option packages were offered, and versions so equipped were priced as separate models. The Technology Package included a voice-activated navigation system with real-time weather and traffic, a multi-view rear camera, and an up-level audio system. The Advance Package included all the features of the Technology Package plus blind-spot alert, adaptive cruise control, ventilated front seats, and a driver-adjustable suspension with sport or comfort modes. Also included was Acura’s Collision Mitigation Braking System, which signals of approaching objects, sounds a warning, and applies the brakes and tightens the front seatbelts if it determines a collision is unavoidable.
For its second season in the lineup, the ZDX was essentially unchanged.
The ZDX saw no changes of note for 2012.
Only one model, which included most of the Advance Package equipment, was offered for ZDX’s final year. New were forward-collision and lane-departure warnings.
