The ZDX features Acura’s largest engine, which offers a remarkable combination of power, efficiency and refinement.
The 6-speed Sequential SportShift automatic with paddle shifters gives you the best of both worlds by providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.
Acura developed its revolutionary Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system to enhance high-performance dry-road handling. The result is enhanced high-performance cornering that simply can't be matched by front, rear, or conventional all-wheel drive systems. The car feels lighter and smaller, yet it’s remarkably stable during high-speed cornering.
For the best balance of handling precision and ride feel, the front strut and rear multi-link suspensions were designed to accommodate the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system’s unique lateral and forward forces.
Because steering is a key aspect of the driver-vehicle relationship, Acura engineers spent considerable time raising the quality of the rack-and-pinion steering feedback.
The brake system is engineered to provide best-in-class braking capability in dry, wet and icy conditions. It is also tuned to provide the precise modulation necessary for the utmost confidence during spirited driving.
A rigid body structure is essential for a smooth ride, precise handling and a quiet cabin. The ZDX achieves a high level of rigidity by using an array of stiff, yet lightweight materials throughout the body.
The ZDX delivers a smooth Grand Touring ride, in which long distances are traversed in uncompromising comfort. An essential component to the experience is the vehicle’s supremely quiet operation at high speed. Engineers attacked noise at the source, inside and out, to reduce the need for insulation materials.
The ZDX has a Battery Management System that can help prevent the inconvenience of a dead or weak battery. The system initially warns you through the MID screen when it detects the battery getting weak and will shut down accessories if it detects the battery may soon be too weak to start the engine.
The ZDX comes with a rearview camera that automatically produces a display in the navigation screen when “reverse” is engaged. There are three separate views, allowing you to select the one that best serves your situation. You can change the views by pressing the navigation system’s “Enter” control.
The ZDX is equipped with Acura’s blind spot information system that can assist you when making lane changes.
The front and rear sensors help you parallel park and maneuver the ZDX with poise when confronted with tight spaces.
The thoughtfully designed side mirrors on the ZDX are a testament to Acura’s commitment to driver convenience and awareness.
As you approach the rear of the ZDX, press a button on the key fob and the tailgate will automatically lift, or you can press a button on the tailgate itself. When you’re finished loading or unloading, just press the button again and it will power down and latch.
The driver and front passenger of the ZDX are each enveloped in a cocoon of soft leather that sweeps from the door, across the dash and flows down the center console. The front seats complete the circle with the same fine leather. And that’s just the beginning of the sumptuous ZDX seating experience.
The rear seats are covered in the same luxuriously soft leather as the rest of the cabin. There’s room for three passengers, with the outboard seats providing optimal comfort.
Open the power tailgate and you’ll find a meticulously designed and lavishly finished cargo area. Your belongings will never have it so good.
The driver has four separate storage areas within reach, and passengers have plenty of space for their travel accoutrements, making long drives comfortable for everyone.
The ZDX provides a dual-zone, dual-mode automatic climate control system that allows the driver and front passenger to create their own microclimates. When direct sunlight is warming one side of the cabin, the system is aware of it and will automatically adjust the heating or cooling to maintain the desired temperature.
The Bluetooth®11 HandsFreeLink® system works with most Bluetooth-enabled cell phones to let you receive and initiate phone calls through the ZDX audio system without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

The Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)12 system monitors stability factors to detect oversteer or understeer, and if detected, VSA uses a number of the ZDX systems to remediate the problem.
Since an under-inflated tire impedes handling and can be a safety hazard, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) uses pressure sensors mounted in each wheel that send readings to a central electronic control unit. The system then evaluates whether the pressure is up to an acceptable range.
