The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Acura ZDX leaves no doubt the company can build a high-quality, high-performance vehicle of any kind-but this particular blend of SUV and coupe just won't make sense for most shoppers. The 2009 Cadillac CTS continues to compete with the best from Mercedes and BMW with a distinctly American approach, boasting some of the top tech features in its class.
