Acura further establishes themselves as a contender in the luxury vehicle arena by bringing cutting edge innovations to the table, evidenced by the new TLX.
Acura makes history with the first Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system. The P-AWS system, designed to independently adjust the toe angle of the rear wheels, allows for fully independent rear steering. Rear wheels can pivot automatically to as much as 1.8 degrees in the same direction as the front wheels to offer a smooth, stable, and steady lane change. This state-of-the-art design also allows the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels (reverse phase steering) to assist in vehicle rotation for easier turning capabilities. When braking at high speeds, the system aids in changing the rear wheel angle in order to increase braking ability and safety. At lower speeds, the reverse phase steering can aid in reducing its turning circle and maneuvering in tight areas. Utilizing P-AWS system enhances maneuverability and control, creating a powerhouse in all wheel design.
Acura TLX Body Structure is an ACE in the Industry
The body structure of the Acura TLX is among the next generation of automotive design as it encompasses Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE). This design offers enhanced protection for the Acura driver and passengers alike. It has multiple braces at the front corners to distribute energy so that the impact decreases when a collision is unavoidable. Occupant safety is the utmost concern. The outer braces will transfer the impact of a collision to the center and then send the force from the impact around the cabin in a more even manner. These safety tools aid in taking the force of the crash away from passenger(s). As a premium dealer to a wide region of drivers, Acura Santa Barbara takes comfort in the brand’s constant efforts toward safer vehicles.
