If the TLX name sounds vaguely familiar, that’s because it is. Acura has removed the compact TSX and the midsize TL sedans from its lineup and combined them into one all-new vehicle, the 2015 Acura TLX. Size-wise, the TLX is longer than the TSX but shorter than the TL and, as such, is better suited to appeal to entry-level luxury sedan shoppers.

The TLX was shown at the 2014 Detroit auto show as a prototype, a lightly veiled version of the sedan due in Acura showrooms this fall. The new car adopts some of the cues found on the larger RLX sedan, with emphatic use of LED headlights and exaggerated fenders that house the 20-inch wheels of the concept car. LED lights also underline the sideview mirrors.

Thankfully, the TLX has inherited many of the attributes from its forebears. Acura gives you a choice of two updated engines either the TSX’s four-cylinder or the TL’s V6 and both offer enhanced fuel economy thanks in part to new eight and nine-speed automatic transmissions. As was the case with the TL, all-wheel drive is available with the V6 and it’s again utilized to provide both enhanced traction in inclement weather and sportier handling.

2015 Acura TLX Interior

The 2015 Acura TLX is a midsize luxury sedan offered in three main trim levels: base, Technology and Advance. Technology and Advance are essentially options packages that are available on both front- and all-wheel-drive TLX models.

The interior’s overall look is clean and very similar to Acura’s flagship RL sedan and MDX crossover. The gauges are easy to read and the stacked display screen combo is used to show and control most of the car’s functions. The learning curve for this interface is pretty painless but some of the touchscreen controls are tedious to use and the overall graphic resolution is underwhelming. And while overall interior quality is certainly nice, a few of the trim pieces aren’t quite as rich-looking or -feeling as what you’ll find in an A4 or C-Class, for instance.

Character lines accentuate the flared rear fenders, further hinting at the sport potential of the TLX. At the rear, rather simple curves coax a trunk lid spoiler from the form of the metal, while carefully inset and inconspicuous tail pipes sit at the bottom of the bumper fascia. The TLX’s best angle is, to most eyes, its rear three-quarter view.

All TLX models come standard with LED daytime running lights, a full complement of airbags, stability and traction control, and conveniences such as hill start assist, cruise control, automatic headlights, and heated side mirrors with reverse gear tilt-down. On the tech front, Siri Eyes Free interface is standard, as is integrated text message and email capability, Bluetooth phone connectivity and streaming audio, a seven-speaker audio system with Sirius XM radio and USB/iPod audio interface, and more.

The Technology package adds a host of features, including rain-sensing windshield wipers, high-tech safety systems like Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning System, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Information System, and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor. Also included in the Technology package are navigation with 3D view, real-time traffic, AcuraLink infotainment, a premium Acura/ELS Studio audio system with 10 speakers, HD Radio, and more.

For standard equipment, the base TLX gets 17-inch alloy wheels, all-wheel steering, LED headlights and brake lights, a sunroof, heated side mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, vinyl (leatherette) upholstery, heated front seats, an eight-way power driver seat (with power lumbar), a four-way power front passenger seat (eight-way on V6), 60/40-split-folding rear seatbacks, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Also standard are Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a rearview camera, Siri Eyes Free functionality, two display screens (an upper 8-inch display and a lower 7-inch touchscreen) and a seven-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, smartphone app integration (Aha and Pandora), an auxiliary audio input jack and an iPod/USB audio interface.

Standard safety features on the 2015 Acura TLX include antilock disc brakes, stability control and traction control, a rearview camera, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag and active front head restraints.

While Acura’s corporate nose has softened and matured somewhat from its brash, beak-like broad chrome grille bar of recent years, it still remains somewhat off-putting to many observers. A strong, wide front end is crowned by the large shield-shaped grille, which itself is flanked by a pair of narrow, wide multi-element headlights. Running lights set low in the bumper and air intakes below those add depth and presence. Along the sides, the TLX’s profile is arched and aggressive, almost tending toward coupe-like if it weren’t for the long and roomy center section of the roof.

2015 Acura TLX Engine

The 2015 Acura TLX gives you a choice of two engines: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 3.5-liter V6. The 2.4-liter engine generates 206 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. It’s offered only with front-wheel drive and is paired with a specialized eight-speed automated manual transmission. (It’s an automated dual-clutch manual, much like’s VW’s DSG or Porsche’s PDK, but Acura has also fitted a conventional automatic’s torque converter to it for claimed smoother operation at slow speeds.) EPA estimated fuel economy is 28 mpg combined (24 city/35 highway), which is very good for this class of car.

Both the four-cylinder and V-6, when equipped with front-wheel drive, get the ability to steer the rear wheels slightly via actuators, a setup like that on the luxury RLX four-door, a system Acura calls Precision All-Wheel Steer, or P-AWS. With Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), the TLX has torque-vectoring control to assist with cornering. The TLX is be fitted with a four-mode driver-selectable system that alters steering weight, throttle response, and shift mapping to give it a more comfort- or sport-oriented feel.

With the 290-horsepower V-6, the extra torque also begins to elicit some bad behavior from the front-drive model, spinning the wheels to the point of screechy tires even with traction control on when taking off hard from a stop. While the V-6’s power upgrade over the four is noticeable, it’s not massive, and the better-behaved four-cylinder seems a better match for the TLX’s balanced chassis. Adding Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) to the V-6 (the only way it’s available) takes away the wheel spin issues, making the TLX 3.5 feel much more sure-footed, but the extra weight (curb weight with SH-AWD sits around 3,750-3,800 lbs) saps acceleration further, leaving it feeling a bit flat.

In our experience driving the TLX, the front-drive four-cylinder is by far the most rewarding driver’s car in the lineup, with an immaculately balanced chassis and very settled, predictable handling. The V-6 feels heavy and a bit more sluggish when cornering, a feeling exacerbated by the sluggish powertrain.
