Acura likes to tout high-tech systems as the main selling points of its models, and the TLX is no exception; it offers four-wheel steering and torque-vectoring all-wheel drive to enhance its agility. The base powertrain is a 206-hp 2.4-liter four with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic or a 290-hp 3.5-liter V-6 with a nine-speed automatic. The TLX has LED exterior lights and electronic driving assistants including AcuraLink, road-departure mitigation, and collision-mitigation braking.
The TLX, though, will never be a sports sedan until Acura makes it available with proper performance tires. Instead, very unsporty Goodyear LS2 all-season tires sit at each corner, sized 225/50R-18. While their tall sidewalls contribute to the TLX’s compliant ride, the tires simply lack the grip to exploit the SH-AWD’s potential. The stability-control system also cannot be fully disabled, limiting adhesion on the skidpad to a meager 0.82 g as the SH-AWD system teetered between pushing understeer and power-on oversteer. Braking from 70 mph was similarly so-so at 174 feet. The Acura’s new chassis feels solid and competent, and the electric power steering is nicely weighted if short on feedback. But the TLX struggles to keep up with its driver even in moderately aggressive cornering.
A button on the console allows the driver to choose among four driving modes (Econ, Normal, Sport, and Sport+), which adjust the assist from the electric power steering, as well as the throttle sensitivity, transmission shift points, and the all-wheel-drive programming. We noticed little difference among the settings in the real world, except that the transmission’s programming is hyperaggressive in Sport and Sport+ modes, holding lower gears for too long.
