2015 Acura TLX Prototype Photo Gallery (20 Photos)

Tlxgallery

The 2015 Acura TLX Prototype sports a cleaner, tamer look with a shorter nose than its predecessor’s beaklike styling; it falls between the compact ILX and the full-size RLX in size and seats five. Acura is only showing us the midsize luxury sedan’s exterior this week at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, so we’ll have to wait until closer to its summer launch to show you what’s in the cabin.

We do, however, know what’s under the hood: a direct-injected 2.4-liter four-cylinder mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission or a 3.5-liter V-6, also direct-injected. Moreover, a new body construction is said to reduce interior noise. Safety equipment includes collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control and a low-speed follow feature, and a blind spot warning system.

It seems that Acura is finally moving in the right direction. While it's not the most beautiful new sedan coming out this year (that honor goes to the new Genesis), it is definitely a big improvement over the current Acura TL.
Better looks, plus Acura's excellent powertrains, will sure lead to a big increase in sales for the brand.
Note: and speaking of powertrains, just a minor correction to the post above. The 9 speed auto transmission is for the V6 model only. The 4 Cyl engine gets an all new 8 speed dual clutch with a torque converter.

Looks like Acura is moving away from the dual exhaust setup that's been popular over the last decade. Interesting for a brand with sporting intentions...

Umm, now that you mention it Jay, I don't see ANY exhaust. No interior? Probably no engine either.

Tony

Why do I see previous Camry in the back side?

DT

This car has the right appeal. The TLX will be a high sales car for Acura.
