Stylish sedan from the States
Among the competitors of this car there are representatives of both the German and the Chinese car industry. The most prominent of these are the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and Lexus LS. Some experts also compare Acura's car to a Rolls-Royce Phantom, but this is perhaps a clear compliment. Before the premium, he only a little, but did not hold out.
The new 2019 Acura TLH model has several modifications. It should be noted that the complete set may include packages of additional equipment, due to its cost of versions may differ significantly. The manufacturer decided not to experiment with the geometry of the body, the dimensions remained the same, and in the photo the car still looks extremely elegant. The prices justify the equipment, which is confirmed by the reviews.

If we talk about technical characteristics, then we need to dwell on the transmission separately. The Acura TLX has three drivetrain options.
The first type of transmission is called INLINE-4 P-AWS. It includes an engine with a volume of 2.4 liters and a capacity of 206 horsepower. In this case, an 8-speed transformer and dual-clutch transmission is supplied. In addition, there is an electronic valve control for the engine. The fuel will also have a cooling effect, which will significantly increase the engine power.
The second type of transmission is called the V-6 P-AWS. In this case, the engine has a volume of 3.5 liters and a power of 290 horsepower. The kit also comes with a 9-speed gearbox. Although the engine is a 6-cylinder, it uses three cylinders while traveling at a speed of 60 km / h, thereby saving fuel consumption. If the driver needs to accelerate again, the engine will also silently switch to six-cylinder mode.
As for the third type of transmission, it is called the V-6 SH-AWD. In terms of performance, this type of transmission is similar to the previous type in both engine size and power. A distinctive feature of this type of transmission is its adaptability to the sporty driving style. It is worth noting the excellent handling and good maneuverability that are possible thanks to the V-6 SH-AWD. Another nice touch is the ability to distribute power to the front wheels when driving in a straight line, which is many times higher than the fuel efficiency.
When starting a conversation about design, the first thing to note is the appearance of the car. Immediately striking are the LED fog lights, which are an excellent assistant in poor visibility on the road. And they look very expressive, immediately captivating the driver with their incomparable forms.
The stylish look of the Acura TLX is complemented by black 19-inch Berlina alloy wheels. Thanks to its high-quality structure, it provides balance between the wheels and improves overall ride comfort.
As for the interior space of the cabin, everything here is done so that the driver and passengers get pleasure from the trip. It is worth noting the quality Milano seats made of perforated leather. In addition to a purely decorative function, they also act as an assistant during sharp maneuvers of the car due to the side bolsters.
Also, the seats can be adjusted in accordance with the needs of each person, and the driver's seat, in addition, is equipped with a lumbar support, which can also be changed for yourself. There are also heating and ventilation functions, each of which has an additional three modes. If we talk about the rear row of seats, then it folds very neatly and conveniently if necessary, thereby increasing the volume of the luggage compartment.
The interior is more relaxed and peaceful thanks to LED lighting. And this is definitely a plus. Thus, while on the road, the driver and passengers enjoy the process of the trip without thinking about anything bad. In addition, the interior is adorned with red leather and brushed aluminum inserts, which underline the sophisticated design of Acura TLH. And so that passengers do not get bored during the trip, there is a function of integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto programs. With their help, you can listen to music, send messages and even watch navigation maps.
