Acura took the wraps off its new 2015 Acura TLX at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. Replacing the Acura TL, the all-new sport sedan is 3.8 inches shorter overall and is lighter weight, making the new model sportier than the outgoing one.
It is powered by a choice of a 206-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine or a 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6. The spacious five-passenger interior features a new 60/40-split folding rear seat to improve cargo carrying capability, while the trunk has a wider and deeper opening with a lower lift-over height than the outgoing TL.
Luxury features include a soft-touch instrument panel cover, alloy and wood-grain accents and available Milano leather upholstery.
High-tech safety features include the Collision Mitigation Braking System, which helps avoid or reduce the impact in car-to-car and car-to-pedestrian collisions. It also has the new Road Departure Mitigation, which identifies painted lane lines, Botts' Dots and Cat Eye markers to detect when the car strays from the lane, warning the driver and providing corrective steering and braking, if necessary. The 2015 Acura TLX will go on sale later this year.
