Acura announced this week that it is putting the TSX sedan and wagon out to pasture and is replacing the TL sedan with the TLX. Acura will reveal the 2015 TLX Prototype at the Detroit Auto Show in January, which will showcase the production TLX that Acura says will go on sale in the second half of 2014.
According to Acura, the TLX is a midsize luxury sport sedan that will have comparable cabin space to the TL. There are few specific details, but Acura says, “The all-new Acura TLX will offer luxury buyers a wider range of choices with two all-new, high-performance and highly fuel-efficient direct-injected engines, each mated to an all-new advanced transmission, along with available two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations.”
Automobile Magazine predicts that the TLX's engines will be a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an optional V6.
No images have been released yet, but Acura says that the TLX will "feature dynamic and emotional exterior styling."
Kicking Tires notes, "Acura's recent forays into more distinctive styling have been less than successful," and hopes that the TLX's styling "will be both distinctive and attractive."
No pricing information has been released yet. The TLX will debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show Jan. 14.
