Why did the Acura ZDX fail?
 

 
What do yall think? why was BMW able to come out with the exact same car and have success? 300hp and you could get it with the SH-AWD which is one of the best awd platforms on the market. I don't think they car looked bad either, they got their design copy and pasted by 3 other manufactures.

It's what happens when you're the first out the gate. I worked for both Honda & Acura. I couldn't stand seeing these sh*ts. Then, when some lady brought one in for service that had like 40,000 miles on it, I was like
I might have been looking at this car all wrong. Plus, it offered the double moonroof, decent amount of room. It wouldn't be my first choice, but I get why people jump on them.

Besides the NSX that cost $200k, Acura have almost nothing that’s worth over $25k. All their cars are ugly as sh*t. How that sh*t is a luxury brand idk. The regular Hondas look a million times better.

I wouldn't call them ugly, but I would say that they are uninspiring. The honda accord touring def looks better than the Acura TLX. They need to do more to distinguish the Acura brand from Honda.

Because it only had 4 seats, it wasn’t a good car or even a good SUV. BMW’s are only litty to people that don’t know sh*t about cars, wanna stunt so that’s the safe route. Look at it like this BMW is like polo, and people who can’t really dress buy it just to stay on the safe side

Lexus is not to far behind BMW and Mercedes if we talking about cachet. I would agree if we were talking about Infiniti or Acura, but Lexus is up there with the best. cmon son

In order for that "coupe" or sportback or whatever tf roofline/c-pillar design to work effectively for an SUV you gotta work with a sizable vehicle to begin with cuz that roofline gonna eat away a lot of the head room in the back.

GLE coupe, X6, and Q8 (and Urus, too but that one's appeal is in a whole diff lane imo) somewhat pulled it off O.K. i guess (im not a fan but the market seems to have spoken).

On the other hand GLC coupe and X4 dont look as hot but mind you they are marketed more as entry coupe SUVs and there certainly is a market for ppl trying to get they first merc or bimmer, in the form of what's hot right now (cross-over SUV or CUV or whatever tf). However i dont think the same can be said about acura (or cadillac STX)

I am still on the fence about Cayenne coupe cuz the only way i could justify it is ok it looks like an SUV for ppl who just cant imagine driving anything other than a 911... but wait wasnt Macan supposed to be just that? Cant blame a corporation tryin to ride the wave and to milk the latest trend tho...

They need to change that ugly a*s grill and fire the people involved designing it. Most if not all their cars are ugly because of it.

it failed for the same reason the Honda crosstour did. it was an awkward hybrid of a sedan and SUV. it just doesn't work. Toyota had the same results with the Venza.

Acura TL 3G with the factory A-Spec kit has the best look and was ahead of its time

It was an ugly, pointless piece of sh*t. So is everything else in the OP.

The RLX has always been a bland and bloated design. The TL/TLX & the MDX is what keeps Acura around.
