2015 Acura TLX Prototype - Unveiled at NAIAS
At the NAIAS in Detroit this month, Acura has unveiled its new TLX protoype, a car that will ultimately be replacing both the current TSX and TL. The new TLX will go on sale as a 2015 model this summer, and will fill the gap between the ILX and RLX in Acura’s sedan lineup. The new TLX adds sport and luxury to the mid-size vehicle selection with its low and wide stance, shortened front and rear overhangs, dynamically sculpted fender arches, and amazing body design. Other elements include LED headlights, 20-inch wheels with 265/35 size tires, and side mirrors incorporating more LEDs.
Comfortably seating five adults, the new 2015 Acura TLX will have a choice of 2.4-liter four cylinder or 3.5-liter V6 engines, both equiped with fuel-saving direct-injection and cylinder-deactivation technologies.
The TLX will come standard with front-wheel drive, and features Acura's P-A-WS - Precision All-Wheel four wheel steering for improved handing.
The TLX's performance credibility is said to improve with a more rigid body construction with a dual-purpose effort to reduce interior noise along with body sealing, sound insulation and an electronic noise control system. When the TLX goes on sale in summer 2014, it will also be available with a full suite of safety features, including collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with a low-speed follow feature and a blind spot warning system.
As for the interior... it will remain a mystery just a little bit longer, as the unveiling was a prototype. Acura has yet to release the specs on the inside of the car, but we're hoping to get a glimpse soon.
