And that's no bad thing.
After the prototype debuted in Detroit earlier this month, rendering artist X-Tomi Design considered what the production Acura TLX might look like. This is the result, with an alluring shade of blue, freshly designed alloys and revised headlights the most noticeable changes from the near-production prototype. The Acura TLX will replace both the TL and TSX, and come powered by 2.4-liter four-pot paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch and a 3.5-liter V6 mated to a nine-speed auto. Production starts later this year.
