2017 Acura TLX 8 SPEED DUAL-CLUTCH P-AWS
The 2017 TLX was designed to deliver a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan athleticism and premium luxury refinement, appealing to a broad cross-section of luxury sports-sedan customers with a wide range of powertrain and drivetrain options. The TLX lineup features three distinct model offerings that carry a long list of standard luxury comfort, convenience, and safety features. All TLX models can be upgraded to the Technology Package and the V-6 models are available with the line-topping Advance Package.
The three model variations feature two Acura exclusive, high-output direct-injected
i-VTEC® engines, two advanced transmissions, and two unique dynamic handling systems.
The 2.4-liter TLX has an MSRP of $31,900* and $35,950* with the Technology Package.
For handling prowess, it features the latest iteration of Acura's Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS).
The two-wheel-drive model with P-AWS has an MSRP of $35,350* and $39,400* for the Technology Package. The 3.5-liter TLX with Advance Package has an MSRP of $42,600*.
The new P-AWS system was integrated into the fundamental chassis design from the earliest stages of development, allowing engineers to take full advantage of its independent left and right rear-wheel toe angle control to enhance handling precision, maneuverability, and stability.
The next-generation SH-AWD system is 25 percent lighter and friction is substantially reduced. The new rear-drive unit is constantly overdriven by 2.7-percent (compared to 1.7 percent on the previous system), with a greater torque-vectoring effect across a broader spectrum of driving situations, further enhancing cornering capability at lower speeds and in tighter radius corners.
Depending on the setting, IDS will adjust power-steering effort, throttle response, transmission shift logic, HVAC system operation, active sound control and the control logic for either the P-AWS or SH-AWD systems.
The new Sport+ mode, a first for Acura, unlocks the full performance potential of the TLX with the most aggressive settings in all areas.
The TLX two-wheel-drive with the 3.5-liter V-6 has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 21/34/25* mpg The TLX SH-AWD has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 21/31/25*
Further, the TLX Tech and Advance trim levels add a host of available features, including a suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, including the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and Blind Spot Indicator (BSI).
A 7-inch On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD) touch screen, located in the center console, controls these and other features, and, with its contextual menus, displays relevant items while minimizing instrument panel clutter.
Additional standard and available luxury features include one-touch turn signals and power windows, power driver and front passenger seats.
In keeping with Acura's commitment to delivering a world-class audio experience, the TLX can be equipped with a 455-watt, 10-speaker Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, engineered specifically for the TLX by legendary recording engineer Elliot Scheiner.
