The new 2015 Acura TLX is a very interesting automotive, and not just because it straddles 2 size classes, providing the space of a midsize sedan in something closer to the footprint of a compact. In replacing the former Acura TSX and TL, the TLX brings a host of new technology to bear on the near premium segment.

External features

The head-turning, flamboyant exterior design of the 2015 Acura TLX is quite the icebreaker. This crossover is a charming outlier and has a carefully calculated outside job that breaks free of the utility vehicle mold in numerous meaningful ways. With the features such as V-motion grilles with its lines continuing upwards and onwards to the hood lines, boomerang style headlights and taillights that frame the most expressive curves and creases in any production model nowadays. Additionally, it has unique floating roofs that have blacked out pillars as well as distinct arcs in the beltlines which pinch it upward near the tails. The sculpting of the side-body is particularly stunningly beautiful and visually interesting with flowing creases above its bulging front fender, tapering downwards and inwards to form a unique beltlines. Meanwhile, towards its tail lamps, the window lines have upward swoops that arch back down towards the rear lamp, playing off as riffs on that arch above its front wheel.
