Proving its well-roundedness, The Car Connection's 2016 Acura TLX review notes several positive aspects of the car aside from its surprisingly large, comfortable interior and enjoyable handling. Among their "likes" are the sedan's luxury tech offerings, which truly are abundant. Starting with the base model, TLX offers two touchscreens, smartphone app integration, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, Siri Eyes Free integration and other notable electronics.
An even higher degree of luxury and refinement can be found when stepping up to the TLX Technology and top-tier TLX Advance models, both of which are overflowing with desirable features. Technology models flaunt systems like forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring and navigation, while the TLX Advance hits the pinnacle of luxury with additions like adaptive cruise control, parking sensors and auto-dimming side mirrors.
Performance is a key aspect of the car as mentioned several times above, so we have to get into details about the lineup's powertrains, too. There's a choice of two very capable engines, including a 206-horsepower four-cylinder and 290-horsepower V6. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder is matched with an eight-speed dual-clutch automated manual gearbox, which The Car Connection calls "super." Front-wheel drive is the sole drivetrain available with this engine. Choose the V6 and you'll get a nine-speed automatic transmission and a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Not sure which powertrain setup is right for you? Visit us to test drive the 2016 Acura TLX in Arlington, Texas, and get a feel for each.
