Acura placed new engines, transmissions and new design into this sedan, as upgraded, but new model of Acura TL, whose design and look were old, and it was shown in sales. The 2015 Acura TLX will be placed between compact ILX and the full-size RLX. We could see prototype at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The 2015 Acura TLX is unveiled, but there is enough time for modifications before official unveiling. Acura is planning the smaller TSX car later in 2014.

Wheelbase of the 2015 TLX prototype is 4.6 inches longer than TSX, and 3.8 inches shorter than its predecessor TL. Overall wheelbase length is 109.3 inches.

Two drivetrain options will be offered in the 2015 Acura TLX. For the base models, Acura has prepared direct-injection 2.4-liter I-4. This one is lighter than the engine inside TSX. Second option will be direct-injection 3.5-liter V-6. Performances and outputs of engines haven’t been unveiled. Front-wheel drive will be standard, but, for the vehicles with V-6 powertrain, there will be offered a new version of Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. Transmission available for this one is nine-speed automatic, and the four-cylinder cars will be offered with eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. This one should bring excellent fuel economy rating. There were rumors about manual gearbox, but it won’t happen before Acura releases TLX V-6 SH-AWD 6M model.

While all other parts are new for the Acura, interior of the 2015 TLX will be similar to the outgoing model TL. Same range of interior space will be enough to take up to five passengers. Anyway, inside the cabin should be more quiet than before because of use of active noise cancellation.
From other features, it is certain that new TLX will have lane keeping systems, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitors. For all other luxury add-on and details, there is no official information.
