2016 Acura TLX – release date, price, changes… The new Acura TLX will get its release date soon. The car has been announced to be released for the 2016 model year and will make its appearance in the first quarter of the year. The car is really something to be excited about and is for all of the fans of luxury sedans. The Acura TLX brings accuracy and excitement in driving and lots of comfort as well. It may even come with a hybrid version as some speculations say but the sporty S-type has already been confirmed.
The last model year gave us vehicles from Acura that were marked as TL and TSX, this is a continuation of those car trims and the TLX will bare many similarities to the previous models. The thing is that the 2015 version just came out a few months ago and has not even cooled down, but as we are already getting ready for the next model year the 2016 is already primed and wrapped for you to buy. There have not been many changes in the look announced though.
Well this idea is logical. Many changes were not needed at all as the already present vehicle is still new. We assume that some additions and some news get to be released but there will not be any major ones nor some that will make a whole lot of difference. By that time and by the release of the vehicle study this review which brings you all the latest news and specs about the 2016 Acura TLX and also provides you with the pictures to see how the car actually looks like. We will also talk a bit about the price as well.
2016 Acura TLX Engine
The latest news have stated that the new Acura TLX will come available with two engine trims. The 2.4 liter I4 DOHC i-VTEC engine is going to be its base option and one that can output a whapping 205 of horsepower. For a higher push and a better power level, the 3.5 liter V6 comes into play with the ability to go 290 horsepower.
The base engine option will be combined with a 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the V6 engine uses a 9-speed automatic ZF transmission system. There is a possibility of using both the FWD and the AWD which the TLX model comes available with and there is not actually going to be a great difference in the fuel consumption between the AWD and FWD drives at all. The EPA ratings states that the car can spend 28 mpg for the four cylinder engine and 25 mpg for V6 variant.
Price and release date of 2016 Acura TLX
The release date of the new 2016 Acura TLX is scheduled to be somewhere around the beginning of the 2016. The exact date was not mentioned but it is certain that the car will be available for purchase late next year. The price has been firmly set at $31,020, while it can rise up the highest to $45,070 depending on the trim level and the equipment and accessories it comes with or the engine you decided to equip it with.
2016 Acura TLX Exterior Redesign
The Acura TLX is still fresh for the current model year so there are not many changes expected to happen on the outside. And it truly is so, the 2016 model car comes with the same body as before and is equipped with only a few innovations that will make it a new car. The styling is still a luxury one and it makes the car look good and adds class to it. The inclusions are a new bigger grille at the front with somewhat changed light positioning with the added LED light technology. At the back there will be also the changes with the taillights as they will have a redesigned light group. As for the other inclusions, there aren’t any. The car looks more or less the same but has a new tone to it which has been achieved with these simple few changes.
The redesign actually only continues with the materials that have been used to make the car. The TLX has lost a considerable amount of weight and is a much lighter car than before. This adds to its better performance on the road and accounts for its fuel consumption specs. With the added aerodynamic shape that the car will have it will make the TLC considerably more drivable and effective on the road.
The inside of the Acura TLX is characterized by luxurious additions and high levels of luxury. This car may be a mid-size coupe vehicle but the comfort levels are so good that you may think that you are driving inside a full-size one. The luxury levels has been enhanced with the usage of the materials that have made its way inside the TLX. The leather seats which have been enhanced with heating systems are the most comfortable addition to the inside of the car. Yet there are more technological upgrades and gadgets which add to the usefulness and entertainment part of the car.
Some of the added features are the new and updated navigation system GPS routing, infotainment functions and many other fun stuff that enable you to drive in a better way while having fun as well. The interior is actually a bit more roomier and provides ample space to both the drivers and the people out front as well as for the people who are driving at the back. The spacing now provides enough headroom and legroom and only adds to the already high level of luxury of the car. The Acura TLX remains a 4-door luxury mid-size sedan with enough space for five people to fit inside.
