2 Door Acura Tl

Typically the 2015 TLX is the best car for you if you would like as a part of Acura's return to the front side ranks of sports cars. It's been a while -- probably since at least 2008, with the last of the really good TL models. The particular all-new TLX recaptures that blend of engaging performance and Acura value. Nevertheless is it good enough to displace such all stars as the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 on your shopping list? I'm Chuck Giametta. Join me for a CarPreview video review of the 2015 Acura TLX. [music intro] A new nameplate, the TLX replaces two cars in Acura's lineup: the slightly longer TL and the smaller TSX. Typically the new TLX borrows some understructure from the Honda Accord - although with significant upgrades to make it stiffer and noise-free. And that's a hurdle the TLX must conquer.
Why would someone choose this car over a BMW, Audi, or Lexus IS - none of which is based on a mainstream family four door? We'll there are some good reasons. It appears pretty good. The grille works with a palatable version of Acura's chrome beak, associated by standard LED car headlights. The side view is unexciting but uncluttered. So is the tail. Overall, is actually clean if undistinguished -- and a far better design than the 2009-through-2014 TL. The mechanical parts are sound, too -- even though this car is based on a 2wd (front) chassis rather than the sportier rear-wheel-drive layout of most leading competitors. And both available engines are essentially re-engineered versions of ones also found in the Accord. Of which helps control costs. Obtainable only with front-wheel drive is a 2 . not 4-liter four-cylinder with 206 hp, 17 more within the Accord. It has much less torque than the turbo charge fours in the Western competition, but also uses less gas than those turbos. The choice is a 3. 5-liter V-6 with 290 horsepower.
That's more than it makes in any other Honda or Acura but still short of the sixes in the top rivals. It does beat their fuel-economy scores, though, and is available with front-wheel drive or the automaker's Super Handling all-wheel-drive. Acura does apply driveline technology that elevates the TLX beyond any Accord and gives it highway manners on par with some pricier sport sedans. The transmissions are high tech. The four-cylinder uses an eight-speed dual clutch gearbox that employs a rpm converter to eliminate low-speed hesitation common to dual-clutch transmissions.
The V-6 has a nine-speed automatic. In addition to all front-drive TLXs have Acura's Precision All-Wheel Steer system that pivots the back wheels a few degrees to enhance managing. Also standard is the company's Integrated Dynamics Method. An Eco mode relaxes powertrain and climate-control calibrations. Sport modes sharpen steerage, throttle, and transmission reaction. The six saves gas by automatically de-activating three cylinders in low-demand driving. And all-wheel-drive models can shut off when the car is stopped. All this makes for a pretty entertaining ride. Don't write off the four-cylinder without a test drive. Helped by the clever transmission, is actually an overachiever, with remarkably lively pickup.
The smooth, strong V-6 is more in keeping with this car's aspirations. Unfortunately, if you pair it with front-wheel drive, rapid takeoffs can induce torque steer - that's when a car pulls to the side under hard accelerator. The solution is Very Handling all-wheel-drive. It funnels power fore and backward and side to side for outstanding grip. In addition to you can monitor the action. The lighter weight of the four-cylinder pays off in impressive flexibility and balance, but every TLX has superior steerage feel and inspires self-confidence on the road.

Wind flow, tire, and engine noises is subdued, and while the ride is company, bumps register with a single thump and you continue on with no sloppy rebounding. This is the engineering enthusiasts remember from the great days of Acura. Compared against the rather generic exterior, the interior seems invigorated. The dashboard is modern and every TSX has pushbutton ignition and real analog gauges not video projections. The double-deck screen is debatable. It can at the same time show, for example, the navigation map and stereo presets. But it suffers redundancies in displays and controls. We're not alone in doubting the common sense of this design. Gleam little brain exercise required of the unusual transmission controls that come with the V-6 engine. It's this assortment of buttons that looks cool and helps you to save space. But unless you have memorized their condition and positioning you will need to look down to make certain most likely activating the correct equipment. You obtain a conventional shift handle with the four-cylinder motor, and both transmissions have steering-wheel paddles for a degree of manual control, though the small plastic-type levers lack style or tactile satisfaction.
That's in contrast to almost everything else you come in contact with in the cabin. It's not quite up to the best available in top rivals, but materials quality is very pleasing. This woodgrain and this metal-looking cut is in fact plastic but at least it's very effective. Front seats are large and supportive, the traveling position excellent. Power heated buckets are standard and perforated Milano leather is included with all-wheel-drive and optional in place of leatherette upholstery. In back again, knee room is good but if you're higher than six feet your head's going to be brushing the ceiling.
We like the condensed design of these front seatbacks; it gives you a much better view forward you get in some cars with bulkier headrests. At about 14 cubic feet, trunk volume level is around the middle of the class. Acura gives you an inflator kit rather than a spare tire, but models with the V-6 can be found with this useful underfloor bin. A split-folding rear seatback is standard but you'll notice the passthrough is pretty tight. That's evidence of the extra bracing that's gone in to the TLX's structure. Even the least expensive TLX comes nicely equipped with the LED lamps, power moonroof, rearview camera, heated mirrors, and Wireless connectivity with Siri user interface.
Adding the $4, 000 Technology Package gets you navigation, lane-departure and rear-cross-traffic alerts, rain-sensing wipers, and the Milano leather. For another thirty-three-hundred bucks, V-6 models can be equipped with the Advance Package. It includes the Technology Package, plus cooled front seats, adaptive cruise control, front-collision minimization, and the automaker's first self-steering lane-assist system. Acura doesn't have the brand prestige of Audi, THE CAR, or Lexus. But it does enjoy a great reputation for reliability and then for low cost of control.
