X-Tomi Design has rendered the 2015 Acura TLX production model based on the prototype exhibited earlier this month at NAIAS in Detroit.
It's not very hard to imagine how the TLX will look like in production clothing but nevertheless X-Tomi Design decided to show us what to expect. While the near-production prototype showed in Detroit had a red paint, this one adopts an attractive blue hue and features subtle revisions to the alloy wheel design and headlights along with other minor tweaks.
Despite being 3.8 inches shorter than the TL, the 2015 Acura TLX will utilize the same 109.3-inch wheelbase and will be powered by either a 4-cylinder 2.4-liter engine or a V6 3.5-liter. Performance specs have not been disclosed but Acura says the four-banger will work with a dual-clutch 8-speed auto whereas the V6 engine will be coupled to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Optionally available for the V6-powered model will be Acura's Super-Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) while front-wheel drive models will feature a next-gen Precision All-Wheel Steer system. A wide variety of safety systems will be available, such as adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist system, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking and lane departure warning.
Production will commence later this year at Acura's Marysville, Ohio factory.
