Acura revealed its brand new 2015 TLX sedan today at the Detroit Auto Show. The car is technically a concept, but the car is a thinly veiled version of the production model in actuality.



The TLX replaces both the TL and the TSX sedans in the Acura line-up. It fits in between the ILX and RLX as far as size goes.

The TLX comes with either an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission or a nine-speed automatic.

The TLX will also be available with two different engines and with either front of all-wheel drive. The two engines are a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 3.5-liter V6. The former has the 8-speed transmission while the latter has the 9-speed transmission.







Acura is also claiming that the TLX will have class leading fuel economy. This should be thanks to the multi-geared transmissions being offered.

A first for Acura is the Integrated Dynamics System. This system will deliver four driving models to better customize the drive: ECON, Normal, Sport and Sport Plus. Each drive mode adjusts the settings for electric power steering, throttle response, SH-AWD and P-AWS control logic, transmission shift timing and the Active Noise Control setting.







Safety features include: collision mitigating braking system, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, a blind spot indicator and adaptive cruise control with a low-speed function.

The production TLX could debut as early as the Chicago Auto Show next month, and is expected to be on sale for the 2015 model year.

Overall my first impression is positive. Love the look from the back and sides, but wish that they had gotten rid of the mini-beak....just take it off and badge the grill.
Hope to see the hp numbers with the 3.5 V6 soon. Looks like fuel economy will be good with the 9 speed. I would consider manual but I just do too many miles on horrible Connecticut roads.
Others have said it....not exactly a home run, but a big improvement over the look of the current TL. I have had many Acuras since my first in '88 so I am hopeful that this is putting them on the road back.
