THE BAD 8 SUPERSIZE v2.0 – PART I


ACURA ZDX


Top 3 Reasons For Avoiding: Acura’s MDX, the ZDX’s donor vehicle, was actually pretty decent to begin with. The ZDX is less than the MDX when it should be more; and more than the MDX when it should be less than…. in all the wrong places. If Acura wants to sell a sporty hatchback, let’s see the Integra/RSX again; not an attempt to compete with a relatively unsuccessful BMW, the X6.

Alternatives: Acura MDX, Infiniti FX, Audi Q5

Base USD Price: $45,495

Ideal Owner: Somebody out there loves Acura but finds the RL dull, the MDX too soccer-mom, the TSX down-market, and the TL too normal. Which leaves one automobile.

Necessary Incentivizing B4 Purchase: $10,000 off the sticker would be a good start.
