What's the best-looking new model on the market this year? Our vote could well go to the all-new 2010 Acura ZDX, a rakish-looking crossover vehicle that will hit dealer showrooms in December. Designed mainly for affluent, empty-nester couples whose kids are grown, it has a powerful, 300-horsepower V6 engine, handles a bit like a sport coupe, and has a gorgeous leather-lined interior—yet also has cargo capacity close to that of an SUV. (Even with the back seats up, it can handle four golf bags.) The ZDX's image is meant to be upscale and exclusive: Its rear-seating capacity is limited, making it impractical for owners with major carpooling duties, and its base price is expected to be in the relatively pricey vicinity of $45,000. But if you don't do a lot of people-hauling and are looking for a truly distinctive new vehicle, the ZDX is definitely worth checking out.
