Debuting at the 2009 New York Auto Show, the ZDX was designed to explore new possibilities for the Acura brand, blurring the distinction between coupe, sedan and sport utility vehicle.
The design is characterized by a sharply raked roofline and bold fender flares; flowing lines start from the headlights and run the length of the car.
In keeping with the coupe-inspired styling, the rear door handles are concealed in the C-pillar.
The all-glass tailgate opens wide to reveal a highly functional cargo space with integrated under-floor storage.
The prototype is finished off with stylish dual chrome exhaust outlets and 9-spoke machined wheels fitted with 20-inch Michelin tires.

“From the very first sketch of the ZDX, I wanted to create an emotional vehicle that challenged conventional thinking of what a sports coupe should be,” said Michelle Christensen, ZDX exterior designer.

“My goal was to create a strikingly beautiful exterior, and use that attraction to help draw you into the rich interior.”

Inside, the ZDX exudes modern luxury while focusing on pampering the front passengers. The cabin is enveloped in leather, which gives the interior a luxurious and inviting feel.
The hand-stitched leather dash and instrument panel sweep down to form a dual cockpit layout.
The premium leather seats are highly bolstered to support the passengers during sporty driving and at the same time provide comfort during a long getaway.
A black monochromatic center stack leads to the textured metallic center console, which complements the black and pearl white leather trim.
The thick leather wrapped steering wheel provides ample grip and is framed by racing-inspired paddle shifters.

The cabin is enclosed by a panoramic glass roof which runs the entire length of the vehicle, providing occupants with a breathtaking view of the world around them.
The production ZDX will be launched in the fall, and will be powered by a V-6 engine mated to an all-new, 6-speed automatic transmission and the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD®) system.
Safety features will include an all-new blind spot information system and a new multi-view rear camera for easy parking.
