Acura TLX 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Acura TLX 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, TLX zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing TLX 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.

Acura hit the market with one of its most adorable models Acura TL in 2004. The TL models are the third generation cars. The newer models of TL combine seductive design with a massive power of 270-hp V-6.

With a classy interior and standard features TL, no doubt, it is an elegant car at an affordable price. Acura TLX is a good buy compared to its German competitors.

However, in our review, we discovered that the front wheel drive torque steered in the way we didn't expect.

 

0-60 mph:  progress & competitors   

When it comes to the 0-60mph, the TLX is not leading the pack. Even its new iteration is having the same issue. The power doesn't increase between the A-spec and the TLX series in the 2018 model.

Leveraging " 290-hp V-6 and carryover nine-speed, automatic combined" the all-wheel-drive A-spec is triggered to 0-60 in 0.1 sec faster than the non-A-spec, V-6 AWD TLX.

However, it hits the same 5.7 seconds when it’s a front wheel drive, 2015 TLX V-6. Which is a second behind an average V6 sports sedan available in the market.

Unlike the non-A-spec, the A-spec permits a lot of the V-6 sweet noise into the cabin. It also creates a semi electronics effect, with Acura using tech to shape or minimize the noise, by implementing active-noise-cancellation feature to quell noise in the cabin.

First time in history, the TLX accelerates with a lot of figurative souls.

 

Engine Specifications

In the TLX series, there is a 3.5-liter engine with naturally aspirated V-6 which transmits 290 horsepower to all four wheels with the help of nine- speeds automatic power transmission. In addition, the A-spec has '“Shark Gray” wheels", a suspension that is sportier, and a package look that is aggressive. Sports seats that are highly ventilated and individually heated.

It comes with faux suede seat, wireless charging, sportier gauges, trim that is metallic, and some badges that are unique to A-spec.

 

Interior and Exterior Design

The A-spec trim is quite easy to drive. Compared to other models in the TLX  family, it retains unique interior, nicely arranged and quite roomy as well.

It worth to commend Acura for discovering a partial solution to its funny dashboard displays. It now comes with a touchscreen and is controlled by a knob below the touchscreen.

The model now comes with the Apple CarPlay and the famous Android Auto, that displays the features of either Android or iPhone home screens. These features replace the outdated, pixelated appearance of the navigation system that used to be onboard.

 

The Verdict

When talking about TLX you have to mention its close rival, the Honda Accord. Although the new Accord does not offer all-wheel drive or a V-6, its 2.0T is quite remarkable with an optional manual transmission.

The truth is, the Accord can't compete with the TLX, but the 2.0T, does make 0-60 quicker. Also, the new Accord Touring has a more luxurious interior than the TLX.

When the all-wheel drive is not an issue, Accord offers a better package than the TLX.
