The Acura ZDX is said to be the car that you will want to own when you kids are off to college. This sporty crossover-coupe offers all wheel drive and is just painted with all the luxury features that you could ever want. There is enough room for you one more person and some light baggage on the inside but that is about it. This pocket rocket has a 3.7 L V-6 pumping out 300 horsepower. This engine along with the Super Handling All Wheel Drive adds up to one powerful and extremely fast coupe that is ready for the road.
The body styling of this Acura cannot be described as anything less than menacing. This vehicle looks like it drives. If you are scared of passing in the fast lane then this is not the car for you. You can fit up to four passengers in this vehicle. The rear seats may be suitable for small children, but much like many coupes these seats were not really meant to be used. Aston Martin does not make any "normal" cars, all of their vehicles are built for performance and the DB9 is no exception to this rule. With a huge 470 HP V-12 this high performance machine from Aston Martin is ready for the Autobahn. The DB9 is one of the strongest grand touring vehicles that are made readily available to the public.
The Aston Martin DB9 is one hot ride. This highway cruiser is no stranger to speeds well into the triple digits. If you are looking for a car that is going to turn heads of passersby as well as the highway authorities, then this is probably not a good choice. There are many luxury sports cars that allow you to drive fast, but there are none that allow you to ride in such style. The Aston Martin company has built their name by building the best European sports cars in the world.
Available in coupe and volante models, the sleek styling of this vehicle gives a very sexy look and over the rear wheels this car actually has hips.

The ZDX is Acura's all-new crossover luxury vehicle and blends coupe-like styling and driving dynamics with the versatility of an SUV. Conceived by Acura's first female designer, the sharp ZDX flaunts sweeping curves and dramatic angularity, in addition to an all-glass panoramic roof from that is said to be the longest continuous glass surface in the automotive industry.
Deeply drawn body panels, bold wheel arches, and concealed door handles make it almost possible to forget about the nose – although the chiseled grille works well here. The ZDX is one of Acura's boldest statements to date.
Satin alloy trim, loop pile carpeting and a broad expanse of leather across the dash are dramatic flourishes to this otherwise typical Acura interior. Cargo capacity is heavily compromised, rivaling that of a Honda Fit.
Performance & Handling
The ZDX's powertrain is one of Acura's best. All 300 horsepower and 270 pound feet of torque are sent to the ground via an all-new 6-speed automatic. SH-AWD helps this deceptively long coupe carve canyons with surprising aplomb. A tight chassis and finely resolved electric power steering conspire to make this the best handling SUVesque vehicle Acura has ever made.
ZDX comes standard with the following: Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, dual-stage mutiple-threshold front air bags, 4-wheel anti-lock braking system with Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control.
