VIDEO: 2010 Acura ZDX Crossover

Join host Jessi Lang as she gives you an in-depth look at Acura’s mid-sized crossover, the 2010 ZDX, with some of the best features offered by Acura. The ZDX’s styling is very aggressive and eye-catching, with an either love it or hate it appeal. The downside to the steep, sloping lines is the mediocre the ingress/egress, even for those of us who are vertically challenged (check out the blooper reel for Jessi’s attempts to get in and out of the vehicle).

Despite the headroom issue, the ZDX has a great deal of potential in the midsized crossover segment. The all-glass roof and leather wrapped instruments are nice touches in addition to the other standard goodies like the moonroof, rear view camera, Bluetooth integration, and iPod connectivity.

Powering the ZDX is a 3.6 liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that produces 300 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy with this pairing is pretty typical to this type of vehicle, if not a little low, with estimated averages of 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.

If you’re an Acura buff, the ZDX pricetag is more in the realm of the MDX SUV than the smaller sibling RDX. However, in comparison to its BMW X6 competition, the Acura ZDX comes in at a much more affordable price, starting at $45,495 with AWD and topping out at $56,045 with the Advanced Package (as-tested)

  1. Okay guys look at 2:31 of this video and if you notice the nob close to the base of the center console you will notice that it has decals for comfort, sport, and ids. With the advanced package you get an adjustable suspension that uses electrodes that pass through the fluid in the shock absorber cylinders, and respectably thickens or thins the viscocity instantaneously stiffening or softening up the suspension. There is nothing conventional about a dynamic suspension as I have mentioned!She is a beautiful woman; however I believe that when it applies to her information given on the suspension she may want to do some more research especially considering the factor that she is driving the model with the adjustable suspension! She failed to mention that and all that she stated instead was that this car has a conventional suspension when this would only be true with the base model. Obviously she should have corrected this much,but besides that great video!
