Typically the 2015 TLX is the best car for you if you wish to become a part of Acura's go back to the front side 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. 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. The particular new TLX borrows some understructure from the Ford Accord - although with significant upgrades to make it stiffer and noise-free. And that's a challenge 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 seems excellent. The grille integrates a palatable version of Acura's chrome beak, associated by standard LED headlamps. The medial 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 pieces are sound, too -- even though this car is based on a 2wd (front) chassis rather than the sportier rear-wheel-drive design of most leading competition. And both available motors are essentially re-engineered types of ones also found in the Accord. That will helps control costs. Available only with front-wheel drive is a second . 4-liter four-cylinder with 206 horsepower, 17 more than in the Accord. It has far less torque than the turbo charged fours in the Western competition, but also makes use of 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 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 Conform and gives it street manners on par with some pricier sport cars. 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. Plus all front-drive TLXs have Acura's Precision All-Wheel Guide system that pivots the back wheels a few degrees to enhance managing. Also standard is the company's Integrated Dynamics Program. An Eco mode calms powertrain and climate-control calibrations. Sport modes sharpen steerage, throttle, and transmission reaction. The six saves gas by automatically de-activating about three cylinders in low-demand generating. And all-wheel-drive models can shut off when the car is stopped. This all makes for a fairly entertaining ride. Don't dismiss the four-cylinder without a test drive. Helped by the clever transmission, it's an overachiever, with amazingly 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 drive - that's when a car pulls to the side under hard throttle. The solution is Extremely Handling all-wheel-drive. It funnels power fore and back and side to part for outstanding grip. In addition to you can monitor their action. The lighter weight of the four-cylinder will pay off in impressive speed and balance, but every TLX has superior steering feel and inspires self-confidence on the road.

Wind, tire, and engine sound 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 keep 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 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 required of the unusual tranny controls that come with the V-6 engine. Is actually this array of buttons that looks cool and helps you to save space. But unless you've memorized their form and positioning you'll need to look down to make certain you're activating the correct equipment. You get a conventional shift button with the four-cylinder powerplant, 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 competition, but materials quality is very pleasing. This woodgrain and this metal-looking cut is actually plastic but at least it's very effective. Front seats are large 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 higher 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 than you get in some cars with bulkier headrests. At about 14 cuft, 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 are available with this convenient underfloor bin. A split-folding rear seatback is standard but you'll notice the passthrough is rather tight. That's evidence of the extra bracing that's gone into the TLX's structure. Even the least expensive TLX comes nicely prepared with the LED lights, power moonroof, rearview camera, heated mirrors, and Wireless bluetooth 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 as well as for low cost of ownership.
