Like most of my colleagues, I have a hard time coming to grips with the styling of the ZDX. To me, it looks ungainly - it's too tall and has an oversized proboscis and an oddly proportioned rear end. Inside, the dash is simply too busy, to the point of being distracting: there are two different kinds of textured plastic, a swath of leather, and a strip of metallic, all layered one on top of the other. While the materials appear first-rate and the fit is impeccable, this is an example where the whole is less than the sum of its parts.
