2015 Acura TLX
2015 Acura TLX

New for 2015

The Acura TLX is an all-new model for the 2015 model year that replaces the now discontinued TSX and TL.

Vehicle Overview

The Acura TLX is a midsize luxury sedan that fits above the ILX and below the RLX in the automaker’s sedan lineup. The TLX replaces the outgoing TSX and TL models, which have been discontinued.

Summary

The 2015 Acura TLX's standard powerplant is a 206-hp 2.4-liter I-4 that makes 182 lb-ft of torque, gets paired with an 8-speed automatic, and is good for an EPA-estimated 24/35 mpg city/highway. An available 3.5-liter V-6 makes 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, uses a 9-speed automatic, and can be equipped with all-wheel drive. EPA-estimates for the V-6 are 21/31-34 mpg, with the three-mpg penalty going to the AWD-equipped models.
Notable features include a pair of color screens in the center console (7-inch infotainment, and 8-inch navigation), Acura’s Precision All-Wheel steering (P-AWS) for front-drive models, an improved Super Handling AWD system (SH-AWD), adaptive cruise control, blind spot information system, collision mitigation braking system, and a road departure mitigation system.
The 2015 Acura TLX has not been rated by the NHTSA, but is considered a 2014 Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS.

What We Think

The 2015 Acura TLX replaces the TSX and TL, eliminating the previous showroom overlap. Styling is conservative inside and out, which we think is a good thing after the controversial 2009 update of the TL. The TLX strives to strike a balance between sport (TSX) and luxury (TL), which we think it does admirably. The eight and nine-speed transmissions shift smoothly and are perfectly matched to their respective engines. The SH-AWD system, only on the V-6 models for now, is “smaller, lighter, and even faster acting than what was offered on the TL SH-AWD. Dive into a corner too fast, add throttle, and you can actually feel the torque-vectoring rear differential tuck the car back into line.” Handling is good, and we think the 4-cylinder model is the better balanced of the bunch when the going gets twisty. We faulted Acura’s tire choice, however, as the relatively tall all-seasons start to lose grip early and sap steering feel from what is otherwise a precise and nicely weighted system.
Despite the new name and some advanced features, the 2015 Acura TLX doesn't revolutionize anything. It's a nicely equipped, well-built, and conservatively styled front-/all-wheel-drive sedan … we suspect many buyers will be just fine with an Acura that once again looks, feels, and drives like an Acura. It's also priced like a traditional Acura, offering tons of content at a discount compared with European competitors.

Acura TLX GT Race Car Front Three Quarters
Automakers never invite ink-stained wretches like me to drive race cars without a good reason. Nevertheless, for the folks at Honda’s upmarket Acura division, the reason seemed like little more than an excuse to have fun.

There’s no doubt that the 2015 Acura TLX is safe, considering the midsize sedan has already been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick +. Now, the TLX is also considered a top-rated car by the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration, having just passed the NHTSA’s battery of tests with flying colors and earning a five-star overall vehicle rating.
Acura TLX Crash Test 02
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety already recognizes three Honda-manufactured vehicles as Top Safety Pick winners, and an additional six as 2014 Top Safety Pick+ recipients. Now, following the latest round of testing, the IIHS now adds the 2015 Acura TLX to its list of vehicles rated with the Top Safety Pick+ designation.

2015 Acura Tlx Tv Ad Side
While Acura was once an enthusiast-favorite brand with sporty offerings likes the Integra R and RSX Type S, the brand lost some of its most impassioned fans when it shifted gears toward a more premium and technology-focused identity. A new and comprehensive ad campaign for the 2015 Acura TLX, claimed to be the largest marketing effort in Acura’s history, looks to revive that sense of passion and excitement with the tagline “It’s That Kind of Thrill.”
