Legendary ELS sound system

Befitting its place in the Acura lineup, the 2010 ZDX comes with a long list of standard features, including 19-inch wheels and tires, USB audio connections, Bluetooth, XM Satellite Radio, a panoramic glass roof, and a power tailgate.
Motor Trend reviewers state that the base ZDX "should start in the neighborhood of $44,000," which compares favorably with the Infiniti FX and the BMW X6.

Although the base Acura ZDX abounds with luxury and high-end features, most buyers will likely opt for what Car and Driver says is "a roughly $3500 Technology package [that] adds nav, an eight-inch display screen...and ELS audio." Jalopnik reviewers in particular recommend the upgraded sound system, which they call "legendary." The Technology Package also adds the rearview camera, real-time traffic and weather information, and keyless access.

The ZDX's Advance Package, meanwhile, boasts additional goodies such as the Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), ventilated seats, and a sport steering wheel. Popular Mechanics reports that this top-level upgrade, which costs about $2,000, adds the IDS "adaptive magneto-rheological suspension (the same type of system found on many Corvettes) and variable assist steering," along with the safety-enhancing blind-spot detector.

While the features list is long, TheCarConnection.com's editors have a few gripes with the 2010 Acura ZDX. It lacks the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo's innovative multiposition cargo divider, the panorama sunroof cuts into headroom in back, and the GPS doesn't offer a bird's-eye view for its maps like navigation systems from other luxury brands. Most of all, the ZDX's options are bundled into added-cost packages that may leave buyers wanting more choice and a lower sticker price.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
