Acura likes to tout tech as the selling point of its models, so the TLX offers front-wheel drive with rear-wheel steering or torque-vectoring all-wheel drive to enhance its agility. The base powertrain is a 206-hp 2.4-liter inline-four with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic while a 290-hp 3.5-liter V-6 with a nine-speed automatic is optional. The TLX has LED headlamps and electronic driving assistants such as road-departure mitigation, collision-mitigation braking, and lane-keeping assist.

Pros
Improved performance,
if only just;
plentiful standard equipment;
roomy,well-appointed interior.

Cons
Slow-witted transmission,
still not rear-wheel drive,
A-Spec diminishes the value proposition.
