Acura Rolls Out Its Red Carpet Athlete
Acura unveiled Tuesday the 2015 Acura TLX Prototype showcasing the design and performance direction for the all-new 2015 TLX performance-luxury sedan launching mid-year at Acura dealerships in the U.S.
The TLX was developed around the theme”Red Carpet Athlete” to deliver a blend of luxury refinement and sports-sedan athleticism, with performance enhanced by next-generation Acura powertrain and dynamic handling technologies.
The TLX will join the ILX compact luxury sedan and the RLX luxury performance sedan as the third vehicle in Acura’s sedan lineup.
“The Acura TLX Prototype is a precursor of some amazing things we have in store for our Acura sedan customers,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president, American Honda Motor, Co., Inc.
“As you would expect from an Acura, this completely new model will offer innovative technologies that break down the barriers between the driver and the machine to deliver a more intuitive, connected and personal driving experience.”
The TLX was designed and developed in the United States by Acura engineers working in the company’s Los Angeles design studio and Raymond, Ohio new-vehicle development center.
The new TLX will be produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the company’s Marysville, Ohio auto plant, which presently manufactures the 2014 Acura TL performance-luxury sedan.
