2001 Acura Tl V6 Mpg

Posted on

The particular 2015 TLX is the best car for you if you wish as a part of Acura's come back to the entrance ranks of sports sedans. 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 AS BMW HYBRID 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. The particular new TLX borrows some understructure from the Honda Accord - although with significant upgrades to make it stiffer and quieter. And that's a challenge the TLX must overcome.
Why would someone choose this car over a BMW, Audi, or Tuning IS - none of which is based on a mainstream family sedan? We'll there are some good reasons. It seems excellent. The grille combines a palatable version of Acura's chrome beak, associated by standard LED headlights. The side view is uninteresting 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 competition. 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 . 4lt four-cylinder with 206 hp, 17 more than in the Accord. It has much less torque than the turbo charged fours in the Western competition, but also uses less gas than those turbos. The alternative 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 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 road manners on par with some pricier sport sedans. The transmissions are advanced. 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. And 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 System. An Eco mode relaxes powertrain and climate-control calibrations. Sport modes sharpen guiding, throttle, and transmission reaction. The six saves gasoline by automatically de-activating 3 cylinders in low-demand generating. And all-wheel-drive models can shut off when the car is stopped. All of this makes for a fairly entertaining ride. Don't dismiss the four-cylinder without a test drive. Helped by the clever transmission, it can 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 guide - that's when a car pulls to the side under hard throttle. The solution is Super Handling all-wheel-drive. It funnels power fore and back and side to part for outstanding grip. Plus you can monitor the action. The lighter weight of the four-cylinder pays off off in impressive agility and balance, but every TLX has superior steering feel and inspires assurance on the road.

Blowing wind, tire, and engine noises 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 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 film-based gauges not video projections. The double-deck screen is debatable. It can concurrently show, for example, the navigation map and stereo presets. But it experiences redundancies in displays and controls. We're not by yourself in doubting the reasoning of this design. There's also a little brain exercise demanded of the unusual transmission controls that come with the V-6 engine. It's this variety of buttons that looks cool and saves space. But unless you've memorized their form and positioning you will need to look down to make certain you're activating the correct gear. 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 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 actually plastic but at least it's very persuading. Front seats are spacious 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, knee room is good but if you're taller than six feet your head's going to be brushing the ceiling.
All of us 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 is around the middle 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 quite tight. Which evidence of the extra bracing that's gone to the TLX's structure. Even the least expensive TLX comes nicely equipped with the LED bulbs, power moonroof, rearview camera, heated mirrors, and Wireless connectivity with Siri 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 minimization, and the automaker's first self-steering lane-assist system. Acura doesn't have the brand prestige of Audi, BMW, or Lexus. But it does enjoy a great reputation for reliability and for low cost of possession.
