After a whole lot of teasing material, the Japanese manufacturer finally revealed the all-new TLX in production form. According to Acura, the TLX is "designed to deliver a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan athleticism and premium luxury refinement."
U.S. customers will have a choice of two engine options: a 2.4-liter four-pot with 206 horsepower and 182 lb-ft (246 Nm) of torque, as well as a punchy 3.5-liter V6 rated at 290 horsepower and 267 ft-lb (361 Nm) of torque. The first sends its power to the front wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the V6 is coupled to a nine-speed automatic.

Both models benefit from Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS), but only the six-cylinder model offers you the optional Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. These latest iterations of Acura's super-handling technologies make the TLX quick and responsive in sporty driving situations, stable and sure-footed in emergency maneuvers, and calm and quiet during long-distance cruising.

Exterior features include an angular front grille flanked by the rather pretty Jewel Eye LED headlights and a swoopy roofline to accent the sporty nature of the TLX. The cabin is chuck-full of high quality materials with premium fit and finish and contemporary design cues.

The more tech-savvy customer will also be pleased to hear that the TLX can be kitted with a 7-inch On Demand Multi-Use Display system, which controls functions such as the heated and ventilated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, Acura Navigation System with 3D view and the media player, just to name a few.

Even though it's a little bit shorter than the TL it replaces, the all-new Acura TLX has the same wheelbase length as is predecessor. No pricing details are available at this moment, but we can tell you that the 2015 Acura TLX will hit U.S. showrooms later this year.
