2010 Acura ZDX

Acura has been way off in the world of styling lately. They’ve had a sorta bland thing going on for awhile, which they “fixed” with the addition of the New Corporate Grille. Of course, this turned the Acura line into a hideous bunch of monstrosities – but at least no one could say they were bland.

The latest failure in design comes in the form of the 2010 Acura ZDX. Following in the footsteps of the BMW X6, the ZDX is called a “Four Door Sports Coupe”, though it’s a fairly tall-ish vehicle. It’s some sort of hellish combination of CUV / station wagon / sports car / funky sedan / not sure where they get coupe from.

Judge the looks as you will ( it’s ugly ), but at least there are some ponies under the hood. Three hundred of them, in fact – pumped out by the 3.7 liter V6 under the hood. The power goes to all four wheels, which is another plus. That’s realy all I can say positively about the ZDX. It won’t come cheap, as the target price is between the $41k MDX and the $46k RL sedan. Why would you pay more for an awkwardly shaped, hideously proportioned ZDX, when you could save money and get the very capable MDX? The world may never know. I sure as hell don’t.
