2015 Acura TLX
The all-new 2015 TLX was designed to deliver a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan athleticism and premium luxury refinement, appealing to a broad cross-section of luxury sports-sedan customers with a wide range of powertrain and drivetrain options. The TLX lineup features three distinct model offerings that carry a long list of standard luxury comfort, convenience and safety features. All TLX models can be upgraded to the Technology Package and the V-6 models are available with the line-topping Advance Package.
The three model variations feature two Acura exclusive, high-output direct-injected i-VTEC® engines, two advanced transmissions and two unique dynamic handling systems.
  • The Acura TLX with a 2.4-liter 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine producing 206 horsepower3 mated to an all-new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (8DCT) with torque converter. The 2.4-liter TLX has an MSRP of $30,995* and $35,025* with the Technology Package. For handling prowess, it features the latest iteration of Acura's Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS).
  • The Acura TLX with a 3.5-liter 24-valve V-6 delivering 290-horsepower4 is mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT) and will be available with both P-AWS and Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). The two-wheel-drive model with P-AWS has a MSRP of $35,220* and $39,250* for the Technology Package. The 3.5-liter TLX with Advance Package has a MSRP of $42,500*. 
  • Sharing the same 3.5-liter dynamic powertrain as the two-wheel-drive model, the all-wheel drive TLX SH-AWD features a new hydraulically controlled version of Acura's acclaimed torque vectoring SH-AWD and will be available with the Technology Package for an MSRP of $41,450* and $44,700* for the Advance Package.
Super Handling Technology
The latest iterations of Acura super-handling technologies, P-AWS and SH-AWD, along with Agile Handling Assist (AHA), help make the TLX the most dynamically advanced Acura ever produced; quick and responsive in sporty driving, stable and sure-footed in emergency maneuvers, and calm and quiet during long-distance cruising.
2015 Acura TLX SH-AWD
  • The new P-AWS system was integrated into the fundamental chassis design from the earliest stages of development, allowing engineers to take full advantage of its independent left and right rear-wheel toe angle control to enhance handling precision, maneuverability and stability.
  • The next-generation SH-AWD system is 25 percent lighter and friction is substantially reduced. The new rear-drive unit is constantly overdriven by 2.7-percent (compared to 1.7 percent on the previous system), with a greater torque-vectoring effect across a broader spectrum of driving situations, further enhancing cornering capability at lower speeds and in tighter-radius corners.
All TLX models also feature the latest development of Acura's Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), which allows drivers to customize their driving experience through four selectable modes; ECON, Normal, Sport and Sport+. Depending on the setting, IDS will adjust power-steering effort, throttle response, transmission shift logic, HVAC system operation, active sound control and the control logic for either the P-AWS or SH-AWD systems. The new Sport+ mode, a first for Acura, unlocks the full performance potential of the TLX with the most aggressive settings in all areas.  Reserve your 2015 Acura TLX at Sunnyside Acura in Nashua, NH

Fuel Economy
The TLX equipped with the 2.4-liter engine has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 24/35/285 mpg city/highway/combined. The TLX two-wheel-drive with the 3.5-liter V-6 has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 21/34/2551 mpg (+1 city/+5 highway versus the outgoing two-wheel-drive 2014 TL). The TLX SH-AWD has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 21/31/255 (+3 city/+5 highway versus the outgoing 2014 TL SH-AWD).

Standard Features
Unlike other luxury vehicles in its class, the TLX offers a number of compelling features as standard equipment across the TLX lineup, including Jewel Eye™ LED headlights, Smart Entry and pushbutton ignition, rearview camera, Hill Start Assist and more.
Further, the TLX Tech and Advance trim levels add a host of available features, including a suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, including the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and Blind Spot Indicator (BSI).

Design and Packaging
The TLX's lithe new exterior design features taut body surfaces, dynamically sculpted fender arches, and purposeful character lines. Its sporting appeal is further highlighted by its more compact sports-sedan proportions (3.8-inches shorter in overall length than the 2014 TL) and Acura's signature Jewel Eye™ LED headlights that are standard on all models. The spacious five-passenger interior of the TLX provides a high degree of refinement, luxury and technological sophistication while supporting an exhilarating driving experience.

Interior Features
An abundance of luxury features and technologies are available on the TLX, including heated and ventilated front seats, HomeLink®, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, smart entry and pushbutton ignition keyless access system, Acura Navigation System with 3D view, and AcuraLink® Real-Time Traffic™ with Traffic Rerouting. A 7-inch On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD) touch screen, located in the center console, controls these and other features, and, with its contextual menus, displays relevant items while minimizing instrument panel clutter.



Also available on the TLX is the next-generation AcuraLink®, Acura's cloud-based connected car system, offering Acura owners a broad range of cloud-based and embedded convenience, connectivity and available security features. All TLX models also come equipped with Siri Eyes Free technology that, when paired with a compatible iPhone®, allows the driver to control functions using familiar voice commands. Additional standard and available luxury features include one-touch turn signals and power windows, power driver and front passenger seats, GPS-linked automatic climate control, Color Multi-Information Display (MID) with turn-by-turn guidance, LED accent lighting, HD Radio®, Pandora® and Aha™ integration and USB connectivity.

In keeping with Acura's commitment to delivering a world-class audio experience, the TLX can be equipped with a 455-watt, 10-speaker Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, engineered specifically for the TLX by legendary recording engineer Elliot Scheiner.

Development and Manufacturing
The 2015 TLX was designed, developed and engineered in the U.S. Production of the new TLX and its powertrain will take place at the company's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Marysville, Ohio.6

    Acura ILX Wins 2014 IntelliChoice Best Overall Value of the Year Award

    ILX takes top spot in Premium Compact Passenger Car category

    The Acura ILX luxury sports sedan has earned the 2014 IntelliChoice Best Overall Value of the Year Award in the Premium Compact Passenger Car category. The IntelliChoice award is based on analysis of every new model sold in the United States and identifies those that have low total ownership costs and lower than expected costs over time when compared to similar models.

    Acura ILX

    "With great performance, premium features and a luxurious interior, ILX is the very definition of value on a luxury scale," said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of the Acura Division. "This Overall Best Value award demonstrates customers can step into luxury through this great gateway to the Acura lineup of luxury vehicles."

    With its high quality and well-appointed interior, ILX is smart, spacious and sporty. It offers numerous features important to luxury buyers, including a Keyless Access System with smart entry and push-button start, Pandora® interface and SMS text message function for easy connectivity, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, and a power moonroof.

    Additional standard equipment on the 2014 Acura ILX includes 17-inch alloy wheels, leather seating surfaces, an eight-way power driver's seat, heated front seats and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. The ride experience is further enhanced by an audio-system subwoofer and an Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system.

    Also available on ILX is the AcuraLink™ Satellite Communication System, Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition™, AcuraLink Real Time Weather™ with radar image maps and HomeLink.

    Throughout the year, IntelliChoice aggregates and analyzes data on nearly 2400 vehicle models to determine its Best Overall Values. Data gathered from auto manufacturers, the U.S. government and third-party resources are used to determine the actual costs of ownership for each new vehicle over a five-year period. IntelliChoice then assigns a value rating to each vehicle and compares that rating to peer models to determine a Best Overall Value in each vehicle class.  The Best Overall Value awards help consumers understand that the total cost to own a vehicle is influenced by a variety of factors beyond initial purchase price.
