Canadian-made 2010 Acura ZDX Features Dramatic Styling, Outstanding Performance and Advanced Technology
TORONTO, Dec. 1 /CNW/ - The all-new 2010 Acura ZDX four-door "sports coupe" goes on sale today at Acura dealerships across Canada with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $55,990. Built at Honda of Canada Mfg.'s plant in Alliston, Ontario, the Acura ZDX features dramatic styling, outstanding performance and the latest in advanced technology. ZDX provides coupe-like styling with the added benefit of a commanding presence and flexible utility.
ZDX features key design highlights of a panoramic glass roof, hidden rear door handles and bold fender flares. Along with dynamic styling, the ZDX achieves outstanding performance from a 3.7-litre V-6 engine combined with an all-new 6-speed automatic transmission. The 3.7-litre SOHC V-6 all-aluminum engine generates 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque for quick acceleration response, outstanding low- and mid-range torque, and superior high-rpm power.
The new 6-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters gives the ZDX excellent acceleration while also enhancing fuel economy. Standard on the ZDX is Acura's exclusive Super Handling All-Wheel Drive(TM) (SH-AWD(R)) system. The SH-AWD(R) system expands the ZDX's appeal by providing outstanding handling as well as excellent all-season capability. Standard on the ZDX are 19-inch, 7-spoke alloy wheels; the largest standard wheel in the Acura lineup.
Inside, the ZDX exhibits the highest levels of refinement and sophistication including a hand-stitched leather dash, panels and sculpted centre console. The rich leather appointments give the ZDX a warm and inviting feeling while creating an intimate cockpit for both driver and front seat passenger.
The flexible utility of ZDX allows great utility, coupled with sleek styling. The ZDX can seat up to five adults while maintaining a generous amount of cargo space behind the second row of seats. The cargo area can also be expanded to accommodate longer objects, such as golf bags, by removing side panels in the cargo-compartment sidewalls. As an added bonus, there is an integrated under-floor storage area.
The Canadian-built Acura ZDX is available in two distinct trim levels: ZDX & ZDX with Technology Package. Like all Acura models, the ZDX will come generously equipped from the start. The panoramic glass roof with moveable sunshades, hand-stitched leather interior, HandsFreeLink(TM) Bluetooth(R) connectivity, power tailgate, and a high powered audio system with CD player, AM/FM/XM radio, and USB audio interface with iPod(R) integration are all standard features.
The ZDX with Technology Package, with an MSRP of $59,590, adds several features, including a Navigation System with Bilingual Voice Recognition(TM), an Acura/ELS Surround(R) premium audio system and a new multi-view rear camera.
ZDX brings a new level of prestige to Acura, the luxury-performance division of Honda Canada Inc. Seven distinct vehicles (CSX, TSX, TL, RL, RDX, ZDX and MDX) are marketed under the Acura brand. The Acura ZDX, MDX and CSX are produced at a Honda of Canada Mfg. vehicle assembly plant in Alliston, Ontario.
