The new TLX is Acura's best sedan. It's available with either a four- or a six-cylinder engine, but all-wheel drive is only available with the V6. The 2.4-liter uses an eight-speed automatic that delivers quick, direct shifts and contributes to the very good 27 mpg overall. The V6 is a gem, with plenty of power, but its nine-speed automatic shifts roughly. Handling is responsive, but not sporty, although the ride is quite comfortable. The cabin is quiet, but rear-seat room is so-so. A generous roster of advanced safety systems includes front-collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitors.
