This car is lightening agile lane to lane but in a sustained curve it tends to roll and under steer.
I believe this is because the zdx has a high center of gravity and perhaps made worse because of its heavy all-glass roof.
The zdx has very poor throttle response, just lots of lag, and utterly no steering feedback!
Keep your eyes glued to the road!
Build quality is super and interior cabin is quiet.
Rear seating in too cramped for most adults except for short trips, and, I find that even in the driver's seat my head often brushes the roof.
IMO driver controls are dangerously complicated.
All in all I find the zdx middling to poor in terms of fun to drive.
I find the styling attractive and unique.
In the beauty category this suv/hatchback/coupe creation is a head turner!
