The TLX is a premium mid-sized sedan loosely based on the popular Honda Accord. With prices starting at $31,000, the TLX is a distinctively styled sedan with a high quality interior and a generous list of standard equipment. The front-wheel-drive TLX base model is equipped with either 206-bhp four-cylinder or 290-bhp V6. For extra traction, the V6 model is available with Acura's all-wheel-drive system. The inclusion of all-wheel-drive widens the appeal to buyers who may be shopping rear-wheel-drive alternatives. Optional Technology and Advance packages add features like a navigation system, premium audio system or adaptive cruise control. The short option list compares favorably to competitive offerings where base prices quickly escalate with options.
The TLX effectively replaces the TL in the Acura lineup. Compared to the TL, the TLX is about 4 inches shorter in length and an inch narrower in width. Two engines are offered in the TLX: a 2.4l four-cylinder rated at 206-bhp, and a 290-bhp 3.5l V6. Four-cylinder engines are paired with a dual-clutch 8-speed transmission whereas six-cylinder models equip a 9-speed automatic. Both transmissions are new to Honda/Acura. Six-cylinder models offer optional all-wheel-drive.
