Acura Tlx 2 Door

Posted on

The 2015 TLX is the best car for you if you need to become 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 all-new TLX recaptures that blend of engaging performance and Acura value. But 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 automobiles in Acura's lineup: the slightly longer TL and the smaller TSX. 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 get over.
Why would someone choose this car over a BMW, Audi, or Tuning IS - none of which is based on a mainstream family four door? We'll there are some good reasons. It looks pretty good. The grille combines a palatable version of Acura's chrome beak, complemented by standard LED 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 bits 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 rivals. And both available engines 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 . 4-liter four-cylinder with 206 horsepower, 17 more than in the Accord. It has less torque than the turbocharged fours in the Western european competition, but also makes use of 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 really does beat their fuel-economy rankings, though, and is provided by front-wheel drive or the automaker's Super Handling all-wheel-drive. Acura does apply driveline technology that elevates the TLX beyond any Contract and gives it highway manners on par with some pricier sport sedans. The transmissions are state of the art. The four-cylinder uses an eight-speed dual clutch gearbox that employs a torque converter to eliminate low-speed hesitation common to dual-clutch transmissions.
The V-6 has a nine-speed automatic. And all front-drive TLXs have Acura's Precision All-Wheel Drive system that pivots the back wheels a few degrees to enhance managing. Also standard is the company's Integrated Dynamics Program. An Eco mode relaxes powertrain and climate-control calibrations. Sport modes sharpen steering, throttle, and transmission response. The six saves gasoline by automatically de-activating three cylinders in low-demand traveling. And all-wheel-drive models can shut off when the car is stopped. All this makes for a fairly entertaining ride. Don't write off the four-cylinder without a test drive. Helped by the clever transmission, it can 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 drive - 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 back and side to side for outstanding grip. Plus you can monitor their action. The lighter weight of the four-cylinder will pay off in impressive flexibility and balance, but every TLX has superior guiding feel and inspires assurance on the road.

Wind, tire, and engine noise is subdued, and while the ride is firm, 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 times 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 simultaneously show, for example, the navigation map and radio stations presets. But it is afflicted with redundancies in displays and controls. We're not by yourself in doubting the common sense of this design. There's also a little brain exercise required of the unusual tranny controls that come with the V-6 engine. It's this array of buttons that looks cool and helps you to save space. But unless you have memorized their condition and positioning you'll need to look down to make certain you're activating the correct equipment. You obtain a conventional shift button with the four-cylinder motor, and both transmissions have steering-wheel paddles for a degree of manual control, though the small plastic material 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 competition, but materials quality is very pleasing. This woodgrain and this metal-looking reduce is actually plastic but at least it's very effective. 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 back again, knee room is good but if you're taller than six feet your head's going to be brushing the ceiling.
We 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 center of the class. Acura gives you an inflator kit rather than a spare tire, but models with the V-6 are available with this useful underfloor bin. A split-folding rear seatback is standard but you'll notice the passthrough is rather tight. That is evidence of the additional bracing that's gone in to the TLX's structure. Even the least expensive TLX comes nicely prepared with the LED lamps, power moonroof, rearview camera, heated mirrors, and Wireless connectivity with Siri user interface.
Adding the $4, 500 Technology Package gets you navigation, lane-departure and rear-cross-traffic alerts, rain-sensing wipers, and the Milano leather. Another thirty-three-hundred bucks, V-6 models can be equipped with the Advance Package. It provides 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, AS BMW HYBRID, or Lexus. But it does enjoy a great reputation for reliability and then for low cost of ownership.
