This Is It. The 2017 Acura TLX.

Acura TLXOur performance luxury sedan is nothing short of perfection. With three engine choices, four driving options and state of the art safety features, taking home the #2017TLX is never a bad idea. Let’s dig deeper into what this powerhouse has to offer.

 

Your driving experience will be enhanced every time you get behind the wheel of the TLX. The world’s first ever P-AWS technology or available SH-AWD handling system will give you the feeling of control. With the Precision All-Wheel Steering system, changing lanes, cornering or braking will be more stabilized because the toe angle of the rear wheels adjusts independently. The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system allows the power to be distributed only when it’s needed.

 

No matter what kind of mood you’re in, there’s a driving option waiting for you with the Integrated Dynamics System. The Normal mode blends handling and comfort to give just the right amount of efficiency and performance. In the Econ mode, the cooling process and sensitivity are slowed, providing consistant speed in order to maintain its fuel efficiency. Be prepared for a little more engine noise with the Sport mode. It’s great if you’re looking for firmer steering and responsiveness with SH-AWD or P-AWS. Lastly, power is increased and paddle shifters are put into manual mode in the Sport+ option.

 

Keeping passengers, and yourself, safe is our biggest priority. The Acura manufacturer made sure to add top-notch safety features to the TLX. Its Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, or ACE, is comprised of an aluminum hood, hot-stamped door frame ring and magnesium instrument panel harness, all helping to disperse impact force in front collisions. We’ve even gone one step ahead with the CMBS. This Collision Mitigation Braking System is set up to detect objects ahead and determine closing speed and distance. Seat belts will tug and the brakes will kick in to remind drivers to take precaution. Accidents, however, are at times unavoidable. The system is designed to reduce force and impact when an unfortunate situation arises.

Another standard safety feature is the Vehicle Stability Assist. This VSA system combines ABS with various sensors to monitor individual wheel speeds, lateral G-force, yaw rate, throttle position, vehicle speed and steering angle. Engine speed is reduced and brakes are applied as needed when the potential for under or oversteering is detected or loss of traction occurs. A sense of awareness comes with the TLX, too. Whether it be the adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist or blind spot information system, you’ll drive with confidence and feel protected behind the wheel.

It is a marquee of the Japanese multinational giant Honda Motor Company and it produces luxury brands for the mother company. It is the first Japanese luxury automobile company to have been created. Acura has been known as a pioneer in the automobile industry because of its use of new technologies in its cars.

Acura was the first to introduce the legendary VTEC engine in the North American market in its midrange exotic sports car NSX and it also beat its sibling Honda in mating a six speed manual transmission system to Honda’s Type II engine in its “legendary” sports coupe Acura Legend.

Acura introduced the trademarked SH-AWD which is an all wheel drive system with torque vectoring technology in the year 2005 in RL flagship model of the company. Acura RDX was the first Honda vehicle to introduce turbocharged engines in North America, instead of naturally aspirated engines. Acura has often used its unique and patented Jewel Eye LED headlamps on many of its recent models. A second generation of the NSX flagship from Acura was launched in the year 2015 and it features sport hybrid SH-AWD all wheel drive drivetrain and a nine-speed dual clutch mated with a twin-turbocharged engine. Acura has upgraded many of its current production models and has lavishly used its innovative technologies. RDX is one car which features most of its awesome technologies and is one of the most popular luxury compact SUVs in the US currently.
