2015 TLX V6 SH-AWD to arrive at dealerships this week
According to Honda News: Acura TLX is selling as fast as dealerships can take delivery. However, the initial delivery of the 2015 TLX consisted of front wheel drive V6 and 4 cylinder cars equipped with(P-AWS) power all wheel steer. Thanks to our readers we’ve received feedback on both models, they're happy.
While Acura TLX sales will not outpace the number one selling car in North America, it will elevate Honda’s premium car brand to new heights. Acura’s Civic based ILX posted record sales in August. However, we’ll save that report for later in the week.
Torque News was afforded the opportunity to drive all 3 variants of TLX while attending Acura’s national press roll out in West Virginia last July. While we discovered the TLX V6 P-AWS FWD and 4 cylinder 2.4 liter i-VTEC to be fun to drive, the fully optioned super handling all wheel drive V6 will be the game changer for those buyers willing to pay the premium.
Acura 2015 TLX SH-AWD offers the best V6 in the business coupled to a very smart 9 speed automatic transmission, all wheel drive and all wheel steering. Utilizing 3/6 cylinder management, direct injection, drive-by wire and i-VTEC technology, Acura squeezes class leading fuel economy(21/31/25) out of the i-VTEC V6 while producing 290 horsepower and 269 lb-ft torque.
With the advantage of all-wheel drive and power assisted all-wheel-steering, TLX offers the best road handling and overall driving experience in its segment.
We’re impressed by TLX comfort, ergonomics, performance and road handling.
2015 Acura TLX is offered in 3 base variants with 7 trim levels. With a beginning MSRP of $30,995 for a nicely equipped TLX 4 cylinder 8 speed DCT with P-AWS to the top of the line $44,700 super handling all wheel drive V6 with Advance Package, Acura’s newest offering brings an exceptional driving experience to today’s ever changing economic, environmental driven new car market.
While MDX will remain the number one selling 3 seat SUV in North America for some time to come, we expect TLX to reestablish Acura’s rightful place at the top of the entry level luxury sport segment.
