Acura’s ugly duckling, the ZDX, has never been a strong performer. Sure, it’s pleasant to drive and built to a high standard but its controversial styling doomed it from the start. Late in 2012 it was announced this sporty crossover was getting culled, though dealers continued to sell them throughout all of last year, if only barely. In fact, they delivered a paltry 361 of them… FOR ALL OF 2013! By comparison more than 53,000 examples of the more traditional-looking MDX utility vehicle were sold.
