This year, for the 2009 New York Auto Show, Acura brought its new 4-door coupe prototype. The 2010 Acura ZDX is based on the TL while also bringing in the functionality of its SUV siblings, the MDX and the RDX. Under the hood, the ZDX boasts a 3.7L V6 engine producing 300 horsepower mated to a 6-speed sequential automatic transmission, giving performance like that of a sport coupe. In addition to its performance abilities, the 2010 ZDX will also be luxurious. It boasts a panoramic glass roof, glass tailgate, and blind spot warning system. While pricing has not been released, we’re guessing that you won’t be able to get your hands on a ZDX for less than $40,000.
While it would be easy to view the ZDX as a crossover or as the poor man’s BMW X6, the ZDX lacks the truck-like feel of similar vehicles, despite the standard AWD. The ZDX also has very unique proportions. It stands less than 62 inches tall, while the RDX is 3 inches taller, and the MDX is 6 inches taller. While the ZDX is as wide as the MDX, at 78.5 inches, it is longer by 2 inches, coming in at 192.4 inches.
