2015 Acura TLX Sedan : Current Models

Acura will bid farewell to its compact TSX and midsize TL sedans this year, making room for their replacement, the 2015 Acura TLX. The new model is about what you'd expect from the alphanumeric mash-up. The TLX is longer than the TSX but 3.8 inches shorter overall compared to the TL. It has the same wheelbase as the TL, however, so interior space won't be compromised.

Its engine choices will also split the difference between the TSX and TL. The base engine on the TLX will be a 2.4-liter four-cylinder rated at 206 horsepower and hitched to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The upgrade option will be a 3.5-liter V6 making 290 hp, joined to a nine-speed automatic. Acura projects an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined for the four-cylinder and 25 combined mpg for the V6.

Front-wheel-drive TLX models include Acura's new steering system that can adjust the angle of the rear wheels in turns for improved handling. All-wheel drive will be available only on V6 models.

Acura's new Jewel Eye LED headlights come standard, while camera and radar systems enable safety features like low-speed automatic braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. The TLX will also showcase Acura's latest interior comforts and technology, starting with a 7-inch touchscreen display that controls 3D-view navigation functions, real-time traffic and a suite of smartphone-integrated apps and services. The Siri Eyes Free voice command feature is also available for iPhone users.

Acura says the 2015 TLX will arrive in the second half of this year. Check back for a full review of the new TLX, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
