2015 Acura TLX

External Features

The TLX integrates several features that are found on the bigger RLX model. What is noticeable is the catching use of LED headlights and LED outlined side mirrors providing an illuminated aura during night driving. As the wheel base remains the same there is no compromise of the interior space. The fenders of the TLX may seem a bit oversized to cover it’s 20 inch wheels but nevertheless, it is still a nice concept to view at.

This provides passengers with internet based applications such as Pandora internet radio, Aha and other online applications. For driving convenience, the vehicle comes with a suit of technology based application ensuring both safety and comfortability to the driver. These include "forward collision warning", "active brake application", "lane departure warning" and "lane keep assist".

Power Engine Variants

The Acura’s engineers designed the new TLX to be economical and fuel efficient. Since it is lightweight, it requires a little less power from it’s predecessors. The introduction of the 2015 Acura TLX comes with a choice between 4 or 6 cylinder power engine. For the 4 cylinder power engine, there’s the TLX I-4 which is capable of producing 206 H.P. at 6800 rpm plus 182lbs/ft. of torque with 4500 rpm provided by it’s direct injection 2.4 liter I-4. The TLX I-4 is solely connected to an 8 speed dual clutch transmission combined with a torque converter providing efficient performance for stop and go traffic.

For the more power hungry users, the Acura TLX offers a 6 valve power engine. The 3.5 liter V6 which is capable of producing 290 H.P. at 6200 rpm and 267lb./ft at 4500rpm. Compared with the TSX where there is no mention of any sporty power engine variant, this 3.5 liter power engine is enough to produce up to 310H.P. from a base output of 290H.P. The TLX 3.5 liter V6 power plant comes with a 9 speed automatic transmission that is lighter than the 2014 variant.

The Acura TLX also comes with a front or rear wheel drive option for a user to choose from. While the front wheel drive provides a forward pull energy, the rear wheel still provides action. with the "accurate position all wheel steering system". What this system does is it provides a rear wheel steering or vectoring control for the driver. This works best during sharp corners or changing lanes.
