Not to impressed with some aspects of the ZDX, Associate online editor Benson Kong doesn’t hold back his opinion. "The space between the tach and speedometer is just as important as the two dials themselves, and I think it would've been better with a nicer, crisper display with a more intuitive interface. For many miles, I thought the ZDX didn't have an instantaneous fuel-economy meter. After pushing the steering wheel buttons in many different combinations, it turns out such a meter exists, but it's accessible only via a specific sequence."

He adds, "Though I personally didn't find back seat ingress and egress particularly difficult, I can confirm that lithe, young women standing no more than 5 feet, 3 inches will grumble when attempting to board. I love the thoughtful indentations in the roof for the backseat craniums."
