2010 Acura ZDX vs. Its Competition

2010 Acura ZDX
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

With its upscale price and features and its unusual blend of coupe and SUV, the 2010 Acura ZDX has few peers in the car world.

It's closest to the new BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo and BMW X6 in mission; the X6 has a higher pricetag and slightly more usable room than the ZDX, while the Gran Turismo has a very spacious backseat, a tall roofline, and a flexible cargo area that puts function first.

The Infiniti FX sport-ute possesses a jazzy style all its own, with tight rear seats and not much cargo space.

Best of all is the new Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon, a five-door hatchback with longer rear doors than the CTS sedan; it has good cargo space, very good rear-seat room and access, and a compelling shape that's distinct from its four-door cousin, along with an option for all-wheel drive.

Quick Specs
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.
The 2009 Infiniti FX offers a truly distinctive shape and sportscarlike acceleration. If you need to haul plywood or lots of kids, though, look elsewhere.
