Safety Features in the 2020 Acura TLX

The system also delivers a front wide-angle view that's useful when exiting garages, parking spaces, and alleys. Acura's Advanced Compatibility EngineeringTM (ACETM) body structure is designed to absorb and disperse frontal impact energy so less force is transferred to what really matters: the people inside. But we didn't stop there. AcuraWatch uses sensors that can continuously monitor the vehicle's surroundings, warning of potential threats, automatically providing steering input to help keep you in the center of a detected lane, automatically braking the vehicle when crucial to maintain a set interval from a vehicle detected ahead and, when imperative, emergency-braking to help avoid frontal collisions. The outer braces are designed to transfer impact load toward the center of the frame, where the energy can be distributed around the cabin area more evenly. This enhanced frontal-crash-energy management helps reduce the forces transferred to the reinforced cabin and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to extra vehicles in a collision. In addition, our accessible Surround-View Camera system gives you a 360-degree view of the headroom around the TLX, which is extremely helpful when backing into tight parking spaces. The TLX delivers a full suite of advanced, active cover and driver- assistance technologies as standard equipment. We call that suite AcuraWatch,TM a network of systems designed to increase awareness and support the driver, working to help prevent, avoid, and mitigate impacts. Crash compatibility is designed into the structure as well, so in the event of a frontal collision, the occupants of all vehicles involved are better protected. ACE incorporates extra bracing at the front corners to absorb and distribute impact energy from narrow-offset collisions to the primary crash structure.

2020 TLX Horsepower | Acura TLX Engine

We believe horsepower is the beginning of the performance story, not the end, which is why, to make the most of the TLX's horsepower, we offer an accessible 3.5-liter, 290-hp, i-VTEC® V-6 or a standard direct-injected, 206-hp inline-4. And we created handling technology as advanced as the engines are vigorous. The TLX comes equipped with the world's first Precision All-Wheel Steer system, in which the rear wheels assist the front wheels, independently adjusting their toe angles to increase steering precision during cornering, lane changes, and even parking. As well, every TLX is equipped with Agile Handling Assist, technology that can apply braking to individual wheels as needed to help keep the TLX on its intended performance line. Also accessible is Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, a revolutionary torque-vectoring technology born from racing that turns even the most demanding driving moments into some of your most positive performance experiences.

Integrated Dynamics System and the Technology Package 2020 TLX

The On Demand Multi-Use Display provides everything you need right at your fingertips on two screens. Navigate CarPlay or Android Auto on the top screen, while still remaining connected to your music and climate management on the lower, dedicated touchscreen. Android Auto brings the Android experience into your TLX. With it, you can project all your favorite apps onto the TLX's touchscreen display, and its intuitive interface populates suggested directions, upcoming appointments, weather conditions, and more. The Talk to Google voice feature allows you to access directions via Google Maps,TM send and receive text messages, and access your favorite music. The TLX's accessible wireless charge pad keeps your Qi-enabled device powered up without the hassle of finding a USB cord. And, should you feel like making the most of your fuel rather than your horsepower, Econ mode is at the ready to encourage both the engine and climate control to operate more efficiently, improving fuel savings. Click from Normal mode into Sport mode, and the TLX instantly dials up throttle response, increases the top end of shift points, weights the steering for a more connected feel, and puts the P-AWS or SH-AWD system on notice to deliver more destructive responses. When you engineer a car with as much potential as the TLX, you want to make sure all that potential is realized. That's why every TLX is equipped with our Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) that perfectly sets up the car's technology to deliver four unique modes of Precision Crafted Performance. It's the perfect combination of engineering and artistry, all there to turn even the most routine drive into one of your premium drives. Music is art. In the TLX, it's performance art, as the accessible ELS Studio® Premium Audio System delivers music as powerfully as music delivers emotion. Created by eight-time Grammy® award winner Elliot Scheiner, ELS Studio was designed to produce music as it's meant to be heard, so even the most familiar songs will feel like entirely new listening experiences. CarPlay® seamlessly integrates your iPhone® with the car's built-in display and controls so you can make calls, access your music, send and receive messages, get directions, or use Siri® with the tap of a button. Sport+ takes that destructive demeanor one step further, with even higher shift points and rev-matching downshifts for better balance when quickly running up and down the gears.

2020 Acura TLX A Spec

When a car is already as bold as the TLX, every design detail of the A-Spec® Package makes a massive impact. Inside the TLX A-Spec is a wealth of enjoyment, style, and inspiration. And it all begins in the driver's seat. Whether you elect for a red leather-trimmed interior or the ebony leather with Alcantara® trim, the front seats are finished with more destructive side bolsters to better support the driver. And the unique A-Spec steering wheel is engineered with a thicker rim to offer the driver a more positive grip, while red accent lighting and instrumentation are there to inspire the driver to make the most of the TLX and all its abilities. And it's all riding on 19-inch Shark Gray split five- spoke wheels that give the TLX A-Spec a posture as forceful as the car's performance. Welcome to a cabin built to inspire. The large dual oval exhaust outlets tucked away neatly in the piano- black diffuser speak loudly of the vehicle's performance focus. It's a focus reinforced by darkened headlights and taillights, side underbody and decklid spoilers, and an exclusive A-Spec front bumper perfectly matched to the signature Diamond Pentagon Grille that's finished with bold gunmetal mesh.

About SH-AWD on 2020 Acura TLX

SH-AWD distributes power front to back and to each rear wheel based on wheel speed, steering angle, rate of steering, lateral G-forces, and yaw rates. A chalkboard's worth of math translates into a very clear benefit: across a vast range of weather and road conditions, you get superior handling and confidence. For increased stability during lane changes, the SH-AWD system transfers power to the inside rear wheel. Under slick conditions, SH-AWD actively sends power to the wheel with the most traction. For better fuel efficiency, up to 90 percent of the power is sent to the front wheels when cruising in a straight line. That is the power of accessible Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), a torque-vectoring system that creates an incredibly stable driving platform and turns corner after corner into some of your premium high-performance experiences. From tight hairpins to high-speed lane changes to the loop after loop up a full parking garage, SH-AWD dramatically improves almost every drive every day. When cornering on dry surfaces, up to 70 percent of the torque is distributed to the rear. Torque vectoring allows up to 100 percent of that power to distribute to the outside rear wheel, improving control and helping rotate the TLX through the turn.

All Wheel Assist on the 2020 Acura TLX

The system can brake individual wheels as needed, effectively using brake torque vectoring to directly control the vehicle's rotation, delivering a more intuitive handling experience. Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS®) is a world's first from Acura-a system that engages the rear wheels to assist the front wheels during cornering, lane changes, and braking. It's an innovation that reads the driver's inputs as well as inputs from the vehicle and then independently adjusts the toe angle of each rear wheel. The result is a noticeable improvement in vehicle steering precision at almost every speed. During high-performance driving, Agile Handling Assist increases vehicle responsiveness and stability.
