It seems like every automaker is trying to find a way to stand out in a crowded market – often by following the latest trend. In Acura’s case, that means the luxury arm of Honda will be rolling out an all-new four-door sports coupe this fall.
This is the first official look at the 2010 Acura ZDX, which made a thinly-disguised debut as we said at the New York Auto Show, last spring, in concept car trim. Both show car and production model share the oversized “panoramic” glass roof, as well as hidden rear door handles and outsized fender flares – another styling theme that has swept through the luxury segment.
The design puts a premium on flexibility, the five-seater coupe-like sedan appears to boast substantial interior space for passengers fore and aft, but there’s also a hefty cargo compartment that can be expanded, Acura notes, to handle golf bags and other long objects, by removing the cargo bay’s side panels. There’s also an under-floor hidden storage compartment.
