2016 TLX

Drivers know the Acura name all over Chicago and the suburbs, and vehicles like the 2016 TLX are representative of what Chicagoans think of when they hear “Acura.” It’s luxurious. It’s stylish. It is inspired by sports cars as much as luxury sedans. And by replacing two outgoing Acura models, the TLX has made it clear it has the chops to take on the competition. That’s why it’s the best selling mid-size luxury sedan in Chicago.



The TLX has two different engine options—already a step above many of its competitors—giving you the sport sedan aesthetic with a peppy but efficient 4-cylinder engine or going all out with the 290-hp 3.5L V6 engine. Features like Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) and the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) give you the skills of a pro driver without the years of training.

  • 2016 Acura TLX 2.4L Engine

    2.4L Four-Cylinder Engine

    The entry-level engine on the TLX is far from the standard, especially when you compare it to its competition. Direct-injection technology helps get the most out of every drop of gasoline, letting this 2.4L 4-cylinder engine churn out 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque and earning an EPA-estimated 35 highway and 24 city mpg thanks to its 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.[1]

  • 2016 Acura TLX 3.5L Engine

    3.5L V6 Engine

    Some drivers define a sport sedan by its power, and we think that’s a fair definition. That’s why Acura gives you the option to upgrade the engine to the 290-hp 3.5L V6 with 267 lb-ft of torque. The engine upgrade gives you access to Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) as well, and both the FWD and SH-AWD models remain efficient enough for regular guilt-free joyrides.

  • TLX-AllWheelSteer

    Precision All-Wheel Steer

    P-AWS comes standard on the TLX, and it’s the first steering system able to adjust toe angles of individual rear wheels, bringing a new level of maneuverability and cornering ability, almost as if the car were bred for the track.

  • TLX-AgileHandling

    Agile Handling Assist

    Like with P-AWS, Agile Handling Assist works to give you more control over the TLX without the need for extensive race training. Agile Handling Assist takes advantage of the TLX’s Vehicle Stability Assist and uses it proactively to brake individual wheels and help you corner with ease.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Performance Braking

    Performance Braking

    Powerful engines need performance brakes to bring you to a stop—even if you’d rather be going full speed ahead. Precision brake modulation on the TLX adds another level of control with dependable solid disc brakes for the rear wheels and a set of ventilated disc brakes for the front wheels.

  • TLX-QuietRide

    Smooth and Quiet

    Engineers worked hard to ensure there isn’t much to impact your conversations with friends or family—or drown out your soundtrack. Other than the welcome roar of the engine when you put the pedal to the floor, the TLX runs quiet as a mouse, with brakes, body structure, suspension, and more designed for minimal noise.


Energized athleticism

Would a sport sedan be a sport sedan if it didn’t turn heads as it zips past other cars on the Dan Ryan? The 2016 Acura TLX has been honed and tested in wind tunnels to deliver the highest level of aerodynamic efficiency, giving it a truly stunning look as well. Features like Acura’s Jewel Eye LED headlights help the TLX make an even stronger impression, and safety features like a rearview camera are covertly installed on the rear, never impinging on the style.

  • 2016 TLX Jewel Eye Headlights

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    The “jewel” in the Jewel Eye LED headlights comes from the reflectors used to enhance the bright white LEDs. In addition to their lower power output, these LED lights deliver a clearer look at what’s in front of you than traditional headlights. And the reflectors glimmer in the daylight, giving them their jewel-like appearance.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Rearview Camera

    Multi-view Rear Camera

    You won’t notice the camera as part of the style of the TLX, and that’s the point. It’s hidden from view yet gives you three different angles to look at what’s behind you before backing up. Just shift into reverse, and the camera display comes up on the in-dash screen. Press a button to change from top-down to wide-angle to standard views.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Keyless Access

    Keyless Access System

    The 2016 Acura TLX looks sharp, but it’s smart as well. The TLX is so smart, in fact, that it knows when you are coming and allows you to enter without ever needing to dig for your keys. The key fob alerts the TLX to your presence, and you can simply open the door, sit down, buckle up, and press “start.” It’s that easy.


Your serene space

A proper luxury car should be so welcoming and inviting to its driver that it becomes a refuge away from the world—even if you don’t have anywhere to go. Features like acoustic glass and Active Sound Control help silence the outside world while heated front seating and premium upholstery ensure you are as comfortable as can be in the driver’s seat.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Front Seating

    Front Seating

    Combining the necessary support of sport sedan seating with the comfort of a luxury car can be difficult—many automakers can’t strike that balance—but the TLX is upholstered in quality leather and features enhanced side bolsters for when you need lateral support during hard turns. Heated front seating (with available ventilation) keeps you comfy all year long.

  • rear-seating1

    Rear Seating

    The 2016 Acura TLX is a sport sedan, yes, but that doesn’t mean its only place is on the track. Families searching for a new mid-size car will appreciate the spacious rear seat, which has room for up to three full-size adults (and thus plenty of space for a couple of kids). The 60/40 split-folding design means you can fold down part or all of the seat to expand the trunk for larger cargo, too.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Audio

    ELS Premium Audio

    Music is an important part of most people’s day-to-day lives, and your driving soundtrack usually has a high priority. That’s why Acura brought on Grammy award-winning sound designer Elliot Scheiner to develop the ELS Premium Audio system. These 10 speakers deliver an audio quality like that of a recording studio for the best experience short of a live concert.

  • dashboard1


    The dashboard of the TLX could have looked like nearly every other luxury sedan—cluttered but functional—if it weren’t for one thing: This is an Acura. Designers worked hard to integrate high-tech amenities with a high-class design, giving you an intuitive driving experience with the dash controls within easy reach at all times.

  • odmd

    On-Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD)

    With all of the different features and controls a vehicle like the TLX needs, it would be easy to litter the console with buttons, but Acura developed another solution: the On-Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD). This touchscreen interface adjusts its buttons and functionality to be what you need when you need it, trading dozens of buttons and knobs for one screen.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Siri Eyes Free

    SMS/Email/Siri Eyes Free

    The TLX keeps you connected without the dangers that come with trying to juggle a smartphone and the wheel at the same time. SMS and email messaging are available through Android and Apple phones, and iPhone users will enjoy the familiar Siri Eyes Free interface for directions, points of interest, texts, and more.


Protecting through each turn

Acura puts one thing before value, luxury, technology, fuel economy, and performance: safety. That’s especially necessary for a vehicle like the 2016 Acura TLX, which practically begs to have you flirt with the redline. Both standard and high-tech safety features help protect you during an accident, and AcuraWatch Plus safety features can even help avoid an accident entirely.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Lane Assist

    Lane Keeping Assist

    Nobody likes a backseat driver, but the Lane Keeping Assist might change your mind. This available feature is able to detect when you’ve started to drift from your lane and will alert you so you can bring your focus back to the road.

  • TLX-CruiseControl

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Cruise control is an excellent feature that lets you enjoy a long drive without your legs cramping up, but it has always had one flaw: needing to adjust your speed. The available Adaptive Cruise Control system of the TLX uses radar to monitor the vehicles around you and adjust cruising speeds as needed.

  • Acura Blind Spot Information System

    Blind Spot Information System

    A radar system detects when objects are in the TLX’s “alert zones,” which are the spaces back and to the left and right of your car that we commonly refer to as “blind spots.” When there’s a vehicle there, an indicator light comes on—it then flashes and alerts you in the event that you use your turn signal to merge into that lane.

  • 2016 Acura TLX Safety

    Child Safety

    The TLX has plenty of room for kids, but it’s important for those children to be safely secured. LATCH-compliant safety anchors let you secure a child safety seat of nearly any size, making it easy to switch out seats as your child grows. The front passenger seat can even automatically deactivate the airbag if it detects someone sitting there who is not a full-size adult.

  • TLX-CollisionSystem1

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    By using a combination of cameras and radar, this available safety feature can detect if you are likely to impact a car in front of you and alert you beforehand. If you can’t come to a stop in time, the system can even apply the brakes for you automatically to help avoid a collision.

  • TLX Road Departure Mitigation

    Road Departure Mitigation

    This system is able to detect objects and markers on the side of the road and detect whether you are starting to drift from the road and onto the shoulder or into the grass. If it should detect you leaving the road, it will send a warning message to the dash or HUD to alert you.
