The overall look of the Interior is clean and the flagship sedan similar to the Acura MDX RLX crossover. Easy to read gauges and stacked combo screen used for the display and controls many functions of the vehicle. The learning curve for this interface is rather painful, but a bit annoying to use the touchscreen and a general resolution graphics are inconsequential.

The four-cylinder engine offers great fuel economy, and the force is sufficient for everyday use. Select the transmission “sport +” mode advantages especially performance, since downshifts come quickly and the lower teeth are held more, thus maintaining engine in the sweetspot of the power band. However, almost all other engines-based rival in this class makes the TLX performance turbocharged, seemed a bit disappointing if you push them back to back.

(In manual mode, both ‘ automatically redline box up.)

2015 Acura TLX Setting

Even in the setting of more identification, TLX shut when driven hard, never the future of the prohibition in bends keeling.

In General, TLX is satisfactory and return late the magnitude and dynamic technique of time associated with the Honda luxury brand. Configuration available three has its own personality and the value of the offer at their respective price points, but if forced to choose, you will reach the leaves with the SH-AWD V-6 model, very happily married 2.4 l TLX and (unfortunately) kill a giant V-6 iterations. If Acura does not return completely, it is very close with this car.
