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.

@MusicCityMadmanI'm glad to hear the ZDX will be entering the Four Seasons fleet, simply because I'm hopeful that the Automobile Mag crew can give us some insight as to why a niche that most of us would never have even imagined five years ago is, for better or for worse, now blossoming so quickly.
This vehicle isn't like a Platypus it's more like a Dodo Bird, it just hasn't gone extinct yet.
WTF, Jennings & Co? A Four Seasons test on a niche product from a second tier luxo maker? Is your time and magazine space not valuable that you waste it on this? Who was it that said ZDX stands for Zero Demand 'Xpected? Next time poll your staff before wasting an entire year with this monstrosity.
