2016 Acura TLX Walk Around

The TLX is handsome while still being an everyday sedan, with bold fenders and an arching roofline to suggest coupe. The Acura emblem grille, sort of a dull chrome beak, is flanked by LED headlamps, with LED running lights low in the bumper.

Flared rear fenders use character lines, maybe to suggest sport. A curvy rear hides a trunk spoiler, over inconspicuous twin tailpipes.


The driver gets to look at an attractive instrument panel that’s easy to read, and a high-tech center stack. Too high tech. Satellite radio is a distracting and infuriating puzzle to tune (in not just this Acura, but also the MDX we recently drove). Climate control isn’t much better. It’s just not simple, as it should be.

The front passenger gets to look at a dark and bleak expanse of dashboard that extends from the windshield all the way down. The upside is that it houses a large glove compartment.

Seats offers a choice of premium leatherette (vinyl) or quality leather.

Active noise cancellation is standard, resulting in a silent cabin up to 70 mph.
