2016 Acura TLX Sedan

Very soon after the TLX Prototype model comes the 2016 Acura TLX Sedan production version. It was unveiled at this year’s New York International Auto Show which was actually pretty surprising since that the prototype was shown in Detroit only some time ago. But the new model is a considerable option when we see the cornet luxury market and this sedan looks and feels quote contemporary and high-end for this segment.

The early release of the TLX sedan might be accredited to the slow sales of the TL version. Since the makers in Acura saw that the TL was not cutting it and that the competition was way too much stiff for this car, they have decided to go and put it all on the line with the TLX version. This is going to be a great new blow to the midsize-luxury sedan segment where the new Acura is going to new packages to its setup and also bring a very sporty looking design which is going to combine with the latest advancements in handling and the new powertrain options it offers.

Acura is going to bring two new engine options for this model as the two-wheel drive vehicle from Acura in 2016 are going to get an upgrade under the hood. Combine the engines with the Super-Handling All Wheel Drive system and you get a 25% lighter setup compared to the preceding one but also one which is upgraded with the new torque-vectoring control logic making the handling superb.

2016 Acura TLX Sedan exterior design

The 2016 Acura TLX Sedan is going to inherit a lot from its prototype version, design wise. The exterior look is much owed to the one that we have seen just some time ago. In fact it really helps when the concept is near-production ready, and this one mostly was as we have seen a car which was already able to take on the market.

If we compare the TLX with the TL, the car which it is scheduled to replace, the new model is 3.8 inches shorter. The wheelbase dimensions actually remained the same but the places where there was a cut made was little bit to the front and a little bit in the back. Acura was planning for a sportier look but they also did not want to give up the interior spacing, well what they did in the end was actually the perfect way to make both things possible.

The front end of the car is dominated by a Acura signature grille and its flanked by  Jewel Eye LED headlamps. The lower intakes have chrome highlights and added winglet-like horizontal elements adding which further justify the sporty design. The thing which was also transferred from the concept are the muscular body lines that the car now has. You can now notice them both on the hood and the sides of the car.

Given the fact that the latest 2016 Acura TLX has the same wheelbase as the TL model, they also share the same interior spacing, particularly when it comes to the legroom. But ten greatest difference is that the TLX has a much more refined interior as it has all sorts of plush features and trims added. The car has one-piece instrument panel cover,  soft-touch finishes and wood-grain and alloy inserts. You can optionally get the Milano leather  option for your seats and other interior details.

The cabin has also been made to be a lot more quieter than before. It has electronic Active Noise Control, triple door seals and acoustic glass windshield that greatly reduce the noise inside the cabin. Technology wise the TLX also has an enormous display of fine and very convenient gadgets. Some of them are the heated and ventilated front seats while you can also get the keyless entry and start.

The first Acura NSX came out on sale in 1990 and was fitted with a 3.0-liter V-6  and later refitted with a 3.2-liter V-6 which cranked up the power to 290 horsepower. Despite the fact that it did not put out the numbers as you would expect from the supercars from that era, it did managed to impress with its curb weight. The car was able to speed up from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds which quickly came down to 4.8 seconds.  But unfortunately the production of this vehicle ceased in 2005. So the upcoming model is going to be something that is going to rives this legendary brand that the fans have missed so much.

O the original NSX made its debut a quarter of a century ago and this new model and the second generation of the vehicle is in many ways different from its predecessors. The only thing which remains the same is the engine configuration, the number of the cylinders that is going to be used and the positioning of the engine, everything else is virtually different. This model is going to add a twin turbocharged engine option and is also going to extend its offer with two electric engines that are going to bolster the performance and for the first time used in this model there is going to be a nine-speed transmission system utilized.

We have made this review to bring you closer to the upcoming 2017 Acura NSX coupe and help you understand how important the comeback can be. Read all about the specs and the performance rates and also see some exclusive pictures that have been recently released.

2017 Acura NSX exterior redesign

As it was highly expected, the new model 2017 Acura NSX is going to adopt a similar design which was showcased with the 2013 concept that was released. The front part, for instance, has been carried over completely and features an Acura trademark which is the beak that has a massive grille that takes over most of the front end of the car. The bumper part is also the same as the air inlets have also been transferred here and are carried over completely intact as well.

But there are some subtle changes here and there that are very noticeable but only in closer inspection. The splitter sticks underneath the grill while the blades separate the grille part from the side intakes. The silver ornament placed on the front end is also a bit different while the car also has revised headlamps with new graphics and LEDs. The hood is different, as it has two vents positioned above the wheel arches.

The back side also carries over with little changes. The biggest change for the back side is the position of the exhaust tips where now the four of them are positioned in the middle rather than on the side of the vents.

Interior update

It appears that eth interior of the 2017 Acura NSX is not going to be so rich in details as the concept version was. The interior of the concept vehicle had massive array of leather and carbon fiber, which we are not going to see here. Instead we are getting some aluminum inserts and the Alcantara leather is only going to be possible for the higher trim vehicles or offered as a special package.

The center console is more production friendly compared to the concept, the buttons and the knob design is greatly borrowed from other Acura vehicles and is completely noticeable but the vents that have been included in the concept have also been removed or changed here. The good part of this interior design is the flat bottom steering wheel which gives it a more racing like design and sporty vibe and a high tech control cluster that is going to be a joy to use.

Specially for the 2017 Acura NSX a twin-turbocharged, 75 degree V-6  is going to be developed.

The T-shaped lithium-ion battery is going to be positioned in the middle while the third electric motor is placed between the engine and  rear-based nine-speed DCT.
