2015 Acura TLX Overview


The brand-new 2015 Acura TLX brings the latest safety technology and the promise of better performance to the luxury sedan segment.

The new TLX is actually a consolidation for Acura, replacing two models in their lineup and slotting in between the like-named ILX and RLX. It is somewhere between the outgoing TSX and TL in size at 190.3-inches long (3.8-inches shorter than the TL), with slightly less passenger room all around.

On the outside, the TLX looks familiar to many of Acura’s recent offerings, especially the larger RLX. The familiar Acura shield-like grille sits front and center, flanked by standard “jewel eye” LED headlights which are actually five individual elements aligned horizontally in thin headlight housings. The rest of the car is fairly nondescript stylistically and LED lights are also found in the taillights and turn signals. A power moonroof, remote-operated windows, and 17-inch alloy wheels are also standard while larger 18-inch alloys are optional.

Under the hood, the TLX introduces a few new mechanical features not found before on Acura models. The base engine is a new 206-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder with direct-injection that is mated an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. The other engine is a carryover, a 290-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 that joins a new, Acura-first nine-speed automatic transmission. Acura’s all-wheel steering system, which debuted on the RLX, is also here and standard on all models. It allows the rear wheels to slightly pivot, smoothing out lane changes on the highway, but rotating counter to the front wheels under hard cornering to improve handling in the bends. All-wheel drive is optional on V-6 models.

Inside, the TLX offers great value with a long list of standard features. Design-wise, it doesn’t really break any new ground; the layout reminds us of the TL and its dual-screen setup for models with navigation added, but Acura says the materials are better with a large, one-piece instrument panel cover made of soft-touch material, alloy and wood accents, and optional Milano leather seats. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, pushbutton start, faux leather upholstery, and powered/heated front seats. There is also plenty of standard technology, including Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, USB/iPod port, Pandora internet radio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and Siri Eyes Free technology which combines with an iPhone to give the driver command over certain functions via voice commands. A navigation system with Zagat restaurant review, real-time traffic and rerouting, and GPS-linked climate control is optional.

The 2015 TLX also offers a decent amount of standard safety features, including a rearview camera, seven airbags, antilock brakes, and electronic stability/traction control. Plenty of safety technologies are available as well, including a Collision Mitigation Braking System, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and a blind spot warning system.
