2015 Acura TLX What's new for 2015? 
2015 Acura TLX

The 2015 Acura TLX is all-new, replacing the TSX and TL sedans. It shares the same 109.3-inch wheelbase as the larger TL, but is 3.7 inches shorter overall while retaining the same cabin space. The TLX features two new gearboxes, an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic and a 9-speed automatic. Front-drive models have 4-wheel steering to improve maneuverability and handling.

About Acura TLX

Attractively stylish, impeccably and thoughtfully detailed, loaded with useful technology, beautifully finished, the exquisite 2016 Acura TLX will be wonderful for buyers but perhaps not so amusing for the competition. Available with either of two powertrains, with front- or all-wheel drive (FWD, AWD), the TLX is a formidable entrant among midsize premium-luxury sports sedans. With such competitors as the Audi A4, Lexus IS and Infiniti Q50, each superb in its own right, it’s a tough group, but the TLX more than holds its own in every way. It brings advanced technologies in the areas of fuel efficiency and safety, terrific driving dynamics, eager and smooth performance and wraps it in a textbook display of high-quality materials and flawless execution. Did we say we like it?

"No other car company compares to the quality and longevity of Acura. Stick with the 4 cylinder tech package...it has more than enough power and it handles better than the V6 from other research performed. All features work flawlessly, ride is smooth as glass, sound system is outstanding, seats comfortable..."

"It seems like my new Acura TLX is having issues with it’s ZF 9-speed transmission. It hesitates and shifts hard going from 2nd to 3rd gear. A lot of TLX owners are upset about this and there is currently a 9-page thread on Acurazine about this issue. This same ZF 9-speed transmission is also used by the 2014 Range Rover Evoque, the 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokees, and the 2015 Chrysler 200s. These vehicles are also having transmission issues. Some TLX owners have found a workaround for this issue. However, many owners feel that they shouldn’t have to employ a workaround for a car that can cost up to $45,000. Unfortunately, Acura has not even acknowledged this issue. Several owners have taken their TLX to the dealer only to be told that there is no problem."
