Used Car: 2013 Acura ZDX Review
Though it has decent performance, the 2013 ZDX has a small interior that limits its utility, reviewers said. 2013 was the last year Acura sold the ZDX.
With its standard V6 engine, reviewers said the 2013 Acura ZDX is powerful enough for most situations, though not especially fast. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, and test drivers agreed that it shifts smoothly and quickly. The EPA-estimates that the 2013 ZDX gets 16/23 mpg city/highway, which is OK for an all-wheel drive SUV. The ZDX has standard all-wheel drive, and reviewers appreciated the ZDX’s comfortable ride and how it hugs curvy roads.
Though most test drivers liked the luxurious and plush materials in the interior of the 2013 Acura ZDX, they also noted that the ZDX is not very practical. A sloping roofline makes headroom in the back seat limited, and cargo space is tiny for the class. The Acura ZDX comes standard with a multi-view rear camera, front and rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a USB port and navigation. Several reviewers commented that the amount of buttons on the dashboard is overwhelming. Many critics appreciated the rearview camera, as they noted that the ZDX’s rearward visibility is terrible.
Other SUVs to Consider
Test drivers agreed that the 2013 Infiniti FX has powerful and exciting performance with either its standard V6 engine or available V8. Auto journalists wrote that the FX’s navigation and audio functions are easy to use.
The 2013 Acura MDX shares many components with the ZDX, like standard all-wheel drive and a V6 engine, and reviewers liked its composed handling. However, the MDX has more cargo space than the ZDX, seats seven and reviewers commented that it has ample rear-seat space.
