2015 Acura TLX
To achieve its dual mission of even sharper sports-sedan performance and increased luxury refinement, the TLX employs a host of new advanced powertrain and super-handling technologies.
Powering the TLX are two Acura exclusive, high-output direct-injected i-VTEC engines: a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine producing 206-horsepower mated to an all-new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (8DCT) with torque converter; and a 3.5-liter V-6 delivering 290-horsepower mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT).
For handling prowess, the TLX features the latest iterations of Acura super-handling technologies: Precision All-Wheel Steer, Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive, and Agile Handling Assist. These new technologies, in combination with its all-new body and chassis design, make the 2015 TLX the most dynamically advanced Acura ever produced. It is quick and responsive in sporty driving, stable and sure-footed in emergency maneuvers, and calm and quiet during long-distance cruising.
The five-passenger interior is designed and engineered to underscore the “Red Carpet Athlete” development theme of the new TLX, providing a high degree of refinement, luxury comfort and technological sophistication while supporting an exhilarating driving experience.
High-end premium elements include a soft-touch, one-piece instrument panel upper cover, alloy and wood-grain accents, and available Milano leather seating surfaces and interior trim. Acura’s Jewel Eye LED headlights lend the TLX an advanced and bright-eyed appearance while producing superior down-the-road illumination.
Base model estimated miles per gallon: 24/35. Estimated starting price: $31,890.
