Ottawa Auto Show: 2015 Acura TLX

Published on March 19 2015

Still in its infancy, the 2015 Acura TLX is a bit of a lovechild bred from the likes of the TL and TSX sedans from Acura (which no longer exist in the lineup).

It first appeared at the 2014 New York International Auto Show.

For the 2015 model year, three TLX versions are available from Acura each with a distinct drivetrain and personality: the base TLX, the TLX V6, and the top-of-the-line TLX V6 SH-AWD. While each offers Acura’s superb drivability and handling, only the top trim features Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD).

The 2015 Acura TLX is sophisticated and classy with instantly recognizable Acura traits and lines. However, the TLX also features new design cues for Acura, namely short overhangs and a wide, athletic stance. It also features Acura’s signature Jewel Eye LED headlights that bring the TLX very much into the present day and is sure to help the desigh age well.

Two engines are available in the 2015 Acura TLX. In the base model you’ll find a 2.4L i-VTEC 4-cylinder mill that produces 206 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. All power is sent to the front wheels in the base TLX model, and is controlled via an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Move up to the TLX V6 and you’ll find a 3.5L i-VTEC V6 unit that’s good for 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque (and is also found in the TLX V6 SH-AWD). Power is handled via a 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and while the TLX V6 features FWD, the SH-AWD is equipped with Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, making it ideal for our tough Canadian winters.

The 2015 Acura TLX also features Honda/Acura’s fantastic Drive-by-Wire Throttle System along with Precision All-Wheel Steer system, as well as an Integrated Dynamic System, MacPherson strut front suspension, and a multi-link rear suspension set-up.
