Engine and Transmission
The new Acura TLX is equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder direct-injection engine that delivers incredible might. The engine generates 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque, so you enjoy an extraordinary rush to your daily commute. The engine mates to a seamlessly shifting 8-speed dual-clutch transmission with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters for a manual feel. If you are looking for thrill, then we recommend the SH-AWD trim. This trim includes a 3.5L V6 aluminum-alloy engine for a jaw-dropping 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. It mates to an exciting 9-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
Sport and luxury performance do not mean low fuel economy numbers when it comes to the TLX. This vehicle was designed to merge efficiency with power, so you can enjoy a quality ride without sacrificing a thing. As the TLX takes premium unleaded fuel, it has an estimated 9.6 L/100 km in the city and 6.6 L/100 km on the highway or 11.2 L/100 km in the city and 7.5 L/100 km on the highway with SH-AWD.
Suspension and Handling
Drivers love to take on the easy-to-finance TLX for its notable suspension and handling. In the front of the TLX is a MacPherson front strut system, while the back has a multi-link rear suspension. The front and rear stabilizer bars target rough roads to give you a smooth and even driving experience. Furthermore, there are Amplitude Reactive Dampers to level bounce. Agile Handling Assist corrects the TLX for roughness, so you can fluidly turn and handle the vehicle. For more precision there is a Precision All-Wheel Steer system with electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering.
The TLX drivetrain includes a front-wheel drive configuration, so you can enjoy an agile and controlled ride. The Drive-By-Wire Throttle system sends power commands to the power inverter module, and it allows more air to enter the engine. Most notable of the drivetrain is an Integrated Dynamic System. This system lets you select from different driving modes: normal, comfort, and sport.
