Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of American Honda, also said the upgraded Precision All-Wheel Steer (PAW-S) has been refined to deliver improved performance, while a 25-percent lighter Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system reduces the weight of the TLX prototype.Sporty like the TSX, but comfy like the TL, Accavitti also claims the TLX prototype is comfy enough to accommodate five adults even though it's nearly 4 inches shorter than the TL.
no numbers but 25% lighter is good news

that awd system isnt light..

the existing TL does it in like 5.4-5.5 seconds i believe

so 5.1 isnt impossible with the new transmission

those numbers from the existing were with the manual transmission though

Would a 0-60 time of 5.1 seconds compete with rivals of the TLX? I think Acura really needs to make sure the TLX can claim it is a performance sedan. I think that it can ride on that and sell units, but only if it is actually true.

Just thought that I would bring in this article byBoldride about the TLX. It argues that Acura has quite a task in proving itself against other brands in the World Challenge series.

They say, like we have, "it’s of vital importance that Acura’s new TLX GT do well against stiff competition in a series that’s growing rapidly in popularity."

Acura needs to compete against brands like Porsche, Audi, or Ferrari. "Acura is hoping to prove itself by entering part way through the season and winning against their direct competitors."

I just can't help but thinking that if Acura is is betting on winning races, they may not be great at placing bets.

It'll be difficult for Acura to beat out vet brands like POrsche Audi and Ferrari, but that will make it all the more impressive if they can do it. It certainly would be a positive news story for Acura and the TLX. Stranger things have happened.

IF they can do it, it will be amazing, not sure what it will do for sales but at the end of the day the Acura is an Acura, can't even compare it to a Porsche or Audi, they are at a whole different level
