Loving those LED headlights just like the ones in the new MDX. They look really sharp on coming.

Depressing. So bland compared to the concept. Was hoping at least some of the concept would carry over but this is just a smaller RLX. Terrible.

This was looking like a replacement for my 2007 TSX. Instead I'll probably get a Mazda 6 GT - that thing is a looker and great value.

The concept without all the chrome would of been perfect, hopefully some sort of a-spec edition will make it look more aggressive.

Insider Info from acurazine. :


Not sure if this has been leaked or not yet. But here are some features for you. Not putting these in any particular order, just how I took notes.

-New remote start system like the new MDX ( remote start 3 ) that has a 1/4 mile range.
- Under storage compartment in the trunk ( similar to RLX with no spare tire, just inflation kit with a spare available as an accessory )
- Fold down rear seats with trunk passthrough
- All 4 windows power up/down 1 touch
- Tech pkg and Advanced pkg have frameless mirrors ( similar to that on the new GM Corvette and Camaro )
- Electronic Parking brake
- Electronic Shifter like in RLX Sport Hybrid
- 7 speaker 355 watt base sound system
- 10 speaker 490 watt tech/adv sound system
-Siri Eyes Free
- Gains of $2,000 in standard features
- 3.5L V6 puts out 290hp and 267 torque
- 9 speed automatic transmission with 25% faster shifting and 5 times faster paddle shiftting
- 1mpg city increase and 5mpg highway increase for FWD
- 3mpg city increase and 5mpg highway increase for SH-AWD
- v6 model goes 0-60 a little over half a second faster
- SH-AWD is 25% lighter and no longer protrudes into the trunk
- SH-AWD system can now act like P-AWS when switching lanes, sending extra power to left rear wheel when moving right a lane and vice versa
- Engine idle stop ( yuck )
- Integraded Dynamic System ( IDS changes steering feel and pedal response ) with a new Sport Plus mode to give old "Type-S" like steering feel and a new ECON mode for fuel economy.
- Blind Spot with Cross Traffic Monitor
- Road departure waring and Road departure Mitigation ( acts like CMBS )
- Tire fill assist ( beeps when correct tire pressure is met )
- Premium feel, engineers want you to feel the difference in the first 50 feet
- 4 Inches shorter than old TL in the overhang. Wheelbase is the same
- Color Keyed entry button
- LED Taillights / Integrated rear Spoiler
- Torsion stiffness up 21%
- Acoustic Spray Foam to vastly cut down on road and wind noise.
- 145 Pounds lighter ( TL FWD to TLX FWD )
- Motion Adaptive EPS with crosswind detection
- 2.4L has 206hp / 182 torque
- 8 speed DCT with torque converter
- 0-60mph 1.5 seconds
- 2mpg city increase and 4mpg highway increase

Not really tlx related but...

ILX (2016) or early next year
- 4 cylinder TLX 2.4 Engine
- Jewel Eye Headlights
- ODMD ( that touch screen system you see in the MDX/RLX )
- AcuraLink
- Improved Smartphone Integration
- Other options will arise closer to it's launch date

RDX (2016) or early next year
- Jewel Eye LED Headlights
- Rear seat A/C vents
- Power Tailgate on all models
- Advanced trim bringing all the features of the MDX advanced minus RES
- ODMD

The ability to get AWD in every model will happen by 2016. So an AWD ILX is CONFIRMED.

They are planning to sell 44,000 TLX'S the first year. That's how much they are banking on this car.

Kinda disappointed but at the same time expected it.

Hopefully maybe a type-s or some kinda racing/sport version will come out in couple years maybe.
