Acura Tl 2 Door Coupe

Typically the 2015 TLX is the best car for you if you need to become a part of Acura's come back 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. Typically the 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 vehicles in Acura's lineup: the slightly longer TL and the smaller TSX. The new TLX borrows some understructure from the Ford Accord - although with significant upgrades to make it stiffer and quieter. And that's a challenge the TLX must get over.
Why would someone choose this car over a BMW, Audi, or Lexus IS - none of which is based on a mainstream family car? We'll there are some good reasons. It appears very good. The grille integrates a palatable version of Acura's chrome beak, complemented by standard LED headlamps. The medial side view is unexciting but uncluttered. So is the tail. Overall, it can 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 front-wheel drive chassis rather than the sportier rear-wheel-drive design of most leading competition. And both available motors are essentially re-engineered versions of ones also found in the Accord. Of which helps control costs. Accessible only with front-wheel drive is a second . 4lt four-cylinder with 206 hp, 17 more than in the Accord. It has much less torque than the turbo charge fours in the Western european 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 much more in any other Honda or Acura but still short of the sixes in the top rivals. It really does beat their fuel-economy rankings, though, and is available with front-wheel drive or the automaker's Super Handling all-wheel-drive. Acura does apply drivetrain technology that elevates the TLX beyond any Contract and gives it street manners on par with some pricier sport cars. The transmissions are state of the art. The four-cylinder uses an eight-speed dual clutch transmission that employs a torque 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 Guide system that pivots the back wheels a few degrees to enhance handling. Also standard is the company's Integrated Dynamics System. An Eco mode calms powertrain and climate-control calibrations. Sport modes sharpen steerage, throttle, and transmission response. The six saves fuel by automatically de-activating 3 cylinders in low-demand driving. And all-wheel-drive models can shut off when the car is stopped. This all makes for a quite entertaining ride. Don't write off the four-cylinder without a test drive. Helped by the clever transmission, it's an overachiever, with remarkably lively pickup.
The clean, 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 Super Handling all-wheel-drive. It funnels power fore and back and side to part for outstanding grip. And you can monitor the action. The lighter weight of the four-cylinder will pay off in impressive agility and balance, but every TLX has superior guiding feel and inspires confidence on the road.

Wind, tire, and engine noise is subdued, and while the ride is organization, bumps register with a single thump and you continue on with no sloppy rebounding. This is the engineering enthusiasts bear in mind from the great days of Acura. Compared against the rather generic exterior, the interior seems invigorated. Typically the dashboard is modern and every TSX has pushbutton ignition and real film-based gauges not video projections. The double-deck screen is debatable. It can at the same time show, for example, the navigation map and radio presets. But it suffers redundancies in displays and controls. We're not alone in doubting the common sense of this design. There's also a little brain exercise demanded of the unusual tranny controls that come with the V-6 engine. It can this assortment of buttons that looks cool and helps you to save space. But unless might memorized their form and positioning you'll need to look down to make certain if you're activating the correct products. You get 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 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 reduce is in fact plastic but at least it's very persuading. Front seats are roomy and supportive, the traveling position excellent. Power heated up buckets are standard and perforated Milano leather is included with all-wheel-drive and optional in place of leatherette upholstery. In again, knee room is good but if you're tall than six feet your head's going to be brushing the ceiling.
We all like the condensed design of these front seatbacks; it gives you an improved view forward you get in some cars with bulkier headrests. At about 14 cubic feet, trunk volume level is around the midst 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 convenient underfloor bin. A split-folding rear seatback is standard but you'll notice the passthrough is pretty tight. That is evidence of the extra bracing that's gone in to the TLX's structure. Even the least expensive TLX comes nicely prepared with the LED bulbs, power moonroof, rearview camera, heated mirrors, and Wireless bluetooth 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, adaptable cruise control, front-collision mitigation, and the automaker's first self-steering lane-assist system. Acura doesn't have the brand prestige of Audi, AS BMW HYBRID, or Lexus. But it does enjoy a great reputation for reliability and for low cost of control.
