Hello everyone, this Seyth with Autoblog and I’m here in 2015 Acura TLX. Once I can say that the TLX feels nothing, both as a sports sedan like the TL it replaced, at least not in the version that I last drove, which admittedly were TL with V6 power and SH all wheel drive. This is a TELEX received a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine, it’s making 206 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque, and it is connected to eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission.

As you can judge by the output power it is not a very fast car. It weighs about 3500 pounds so it is to carry extra weight. At the same time the eight-speed gearbox is very responsive especially as you go through selectable gear of programs that You can make the throttle response is very good.

It is throttle by wire And I have not noticed any oddities there, it feels very linear, and as I said, When I translated the system into sport plus mode, the gas pedal becomes very responsive. The exhaust note is muted, you really have to get up over 5000 rpm before you start to feel how the engine actually pushes you. One of the things that struck me first about this Acura when I got into it was how quiet it was at speed. I feel like in the luxury segment, Acuras historically done a little better, sportier versions of cars in its segment and not necessarily more elegant, but it seems that he is changing a lot in the last several generations of Acura. What it lacks in athletic ability he compensates for emotional balance. I’m pretty good right now, there are a lot of bad around where I live is suspension absorbs big impact and it dampens the sound of them too.

Acura is clearly going after a much more common service these days and I think that this car could be very attractive, more attractive than ever for the shopper something like a Lexus ES. One feature that I really played around with the Acura was in the active lane keep Assist, which actually works by moving the steering wheel to such an extent to keep you centered in your lane, if hands are off the wheel. What I like about it, unlike some systems it’s not just Bouncing from one side to the other keeping the car in the middle, as he reads diagonally drawn lines or curves on both sides but it works actively to keep you centered which is nice. Everything here feels very solid, the seats are nice, the controls feel nice, I’m actually not so many problems with Acura infotainment system, which I know that other people have a dual screen setup, I think it’s normal, I had no real problems using it at all.

Overall if I had to bet, I would guess that Acura will have a lot less trouble selling this version, this TELEX, than they did with the TL especially in the beak-nose shape that everyone was really much care one way or another. The car does well in terms of fuel economy, it has competitive powertrains, there is a lot of technology both under the bonnet and inside the cabin, and I think there are many things that if I Acura dealer, I can point out and help me close the deal. Thank you for joining me on this casual Friday, in this very calm Acura TLX. I hope to see you at the next one and happy driving.
