Reviewing the 2015 Acura TLX

June 5th, 2014 by

The 2015 Acura TLX is coming soon to a Chicagoland Acura Dealer near you, and we just cannot wait for it to hit our showrooms. We don’t just want to sit and stare at it all day, though. We want to see you head out behind the wheel and be just as impressed by this amazing new sedan as we are.

If you haven’t heard about the TLX, we encourage you to read on and get a glimpse of what’s coming to the streets of Chicago. If you have heard about it, we still think you should read on and imagine yourself behind the wheel.

Fusing Two Sedans Into One

We wouldn’t dream of trying to design the car that would need to replace the popular Acura TL or TSX, but designing the one that would need to replace them both? That’s an incredible feat. And yet Acura has managed to go above and beyond the call of duty, with the TLX bringing everything drivers love about the TSX and the TL and then adding to it!

Not only do you have your choice of two engines, but each features a new transmission design too:

  • 2.4L inline four-cylinder with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, capable of 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque while offering drivers an EPA-estimated 35 mpg on the highway.*
  • Upgrading to the 3.5L V6 brings a 9-speed automatic transmission, 290 hp, 267 lb-ft of torque.

Features like Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steer help give you the most control over the TLX, and the optional Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (available on V6 models) takes things to a whole new level.

You can expect a similar level of technology and refinement in the cabin as well, reminding drivers that not only is a luxury sedan like the TLX powerful and elegant, but beautiful too.
