When it gloomed on last New York's Auto Show, Acura announced that their latest ZDX coupe-like crossover SUV will come to production. Well, here it is; fully-production 2010 Acura ZDX, that will arrive to dealerships later this winter. The Acura ZDX is the real competitor against BMW X6 SAV.Design:
With the exception of a few minor cosmetic details such as the head- and tail-light trims, the alloy wheels, the lower bumper designs and the interior trim, the production ZDX is identical to the NY Show concept. Which actually is a good thing, since Acura gave the ZDX a very sleek but yet settle design. Notable design highlights include Acura's new trademark grille, the panoramic glass roof, the hidden rear door handles, and the bulgy fender flares.
Like the exterior, the interior too, stays reminiscent to the original ZDX Concept. Two-tone dashboard, large center navigation and entertainment screen, and 5 hand-stitched leather sport seats were the interior elements on the ZDX concepts; that now also come in the production ZDX.
The 2010 Acura ZDX will also use Acura's latest drive-trains. Powered by Acura's latest direct-injection 3.7L V6, out-putting 300 hp and 270 lb-ft. The engine is mated to 6-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheels mounted paddle shifters. 2010 ZDX also benefits from Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. Performance or fuel economy figures have yet to be announced.
No pricing list is revealed either. However, according to Acura, the 2010 ZDX will be priced between the MDX luxury SUV and the RL luxury sedan. So look for the 2010 ZDX this winter!
