Overview

What's New in the 2015 Acura TLX?

The TLX is all new for 2015, replacing the TSX and TL. It offers a totally new interior, new styling, new transmissions, and a wide array of new features that you couldn't get in either of its predecessors

Which TLX is the Best?

The 2015 Acura TLX is a formidable player in the luxury-car world -- assuming you're not into all-out performance. Still, we'd go for the more powerful V6, largely because it costs the same as base-level 4-cylinder powerplants in rival cars. We'd also add on the Technology package for its impressive equipment, though we're not sure that we'd ever find a use for most of the advanced features in the aptly named Advance package.

How Much Does a 2015 Acura TLX Cost?

The TLX doesn't really offer trim levels, though Acura organizes the sedan's pricing structure based on engine choice: There's a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and a 3.5-liter V6.

Base-level TLX models use the 2.4-liter engine ($32,000). Standard features include a multiview backup camera, LED headlights, keyless access with push-button starting, steering-wheel paddle shifters for the automatic transmission, a power driver's seat, Bluetooth, a USB port for music with iPod capability, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Siri Eyes Free. Of course, the TLX also comes standard with a wide variety of typical features, including alloy wheels, leather upholstery and power accessories.

Step up to the 3.5-liter V6 ($36,200), and you add a few other features. Of course, there's the 6-cylinder engine, but the V6 model also offers a power front passenger seat, an electronic gear selector and larger alloy wheels.

Two major option packages are available for the TLX. Four-cylinder and V6 models are available with the Technology package, which includes a navigation system, automatic wipers, Acura's impressive lane-keep-assist technology, upgraded leather upholstery and the brand's AcuraLink infotainment system. The package costs around $4,000.

Drivers who choose the V6 can also upgrade to the Advance package, which includes even more high-tech features: adaptive cruise control, a forward-collision system with automatic braking, front and rear parking sensors, and a remote engine starter.

Is the 2015 Acura TLX a Safe Car?

The TLX comes standard with a wide variety of safety features. In addition to the usual complement of airbags and traction controls, the TLX features a multiview rearview camera and powerful LED headlights. Drivers who opt for upgrades -- choosing the Technology package or the Advance package, for instance -- can get even more features, from Acura's lane-keep assistant to a forward-collision warning system with automatic braking, front and rear parking sensors, automatic wipers and adaptive cruise control.

Owing to the TLX's recent arrival on the market, neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has crash-tested the sedan.

Competition

2015 Acura TLX vs the competition

Audi A4 -- The A4 starts around $36,500, making it far more expensive than the TLX, and it doesn't offer the features or performance to back up that price premium. Many people prefer its Audi brand name, though, and the A4's interior is among our favorites.

Infiniti Q50 -- The newly renamed (and redesigned) Infiniti Q50 replaces the G37 sedan. Performance is superior, with the Q50 touting 328 horses and rear-wheel drive, but the TLX offers more of a focus on comfort -- and a dramatically lower starting price.

Lexus IS -- The Lexus IS offers bold styling, rear-wheel drive and some of today's latest high-tech features. It outperforms the TLX, both in IS 250 and IS 350 form, but the TLX holds a major price advantage, undercutting even the IS 250 by around $5,000.
