Five reasons you should check out the Acura TLX



The 2016 Acura TLX is here and there are lots of reasons for people to buy it. This one vehicle replaces both the TSX and the TL and offers the best of both worlds. It has the luxury features of the TL plus the agility of the TSX. The result is a stylish, comfortable vehicle with adequate power, superior handling and a wide range of innovative features at a very affordable price. Here are 5 reasons to buy the Acura TLX.

Distinctive Styling

Many people weren’t in love with the Acura TL’s bionic beak grille. They longed for Acura’s usual tasteful, understated style. The 2016 Acura TLX will satisfy them and is sure to turn heads. In the front there are jewel-like headlights. The rear features classy LED taillights. And in between is a sleek-looking automobile that’s easy on the eyes and destined to attract lots of new fans and win back old friends.

Appealing Powertrain Options

The base TLX comes with the same 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that was on the TSX. It also has a nice new dual-clutch automated manual transmission. The standard shift paddles help the vehicle make the most of the 206 horsepower the engine possesses. For those that want more, there’s an available V6 engine with 290 horsepower that works in concert with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The pairings are both powerful and fuel efficient. The 4-cylinder produces 35 miles per gallon in highway driving while the V6 delivers 34 miles per gallon.

Impressive Handling

Whether you choose the 4-cylinder or the V6 TLX, you are going to love the way the vehicle handles on even the tightest roads. The 4-cylinder only comes with front-wheel drive and the nose isn’t as heavy as that of the V6. This makes the 4-cylinder version feel incredibly responsive. Should you opt for the TLX V6 with Honda’s optional Super Handling All Wheel Drive system, you’re in for a real treat. The system sends power side-to-side and front-to-back. This eliminates understeer and gives the TLX that sporty feel for which Acura automobiles have long been known and loved. While you can’t push an Acura TLX to the limits on a test drive, you should still see what one is made of at Chapman Acura

Great Seats

The seats on the 2016 Acura TLX are stellar. Standard on the TLX is a 10-way power driver’s seat that delivers the type of support people expect from a much more expensive vehicle. The rear passenger seating is both comfortable and pleasing and provides sufficient space for people to relax. That means whether you’re the driver or a passenger in the TLX you’re sure to enjoy the experience.

More Features For Less

Acura always provides great standard features in its automobiles. The TLX continues that tradition with standard features like Bluetooth, automatic climate control, dual display screens and many others that provide connectivity, infotainment and comfort. Add the Technology package and you get safety features like lane-departure warning and more, as well as an excellent ELS stereo. The Acura TLX offers more than its higher-priced European rivals, plus has better resale value.
