Bold and Outstanding Precision/Performance in Acura TLX Model

2017-06-27T16:12:36+00:00June 27th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles|

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.

Awards Abound for the Acura TLX

A finalist in the USA News 2017 Best Luxury Mid-Size Cars for the Money awards, Acura TLX stands out among its opponents as a top dog. Acura Santa Barbara continues to supply automotive excellence to its valued customers. Come in and test-drive an Acura TLX today.

TLX: Sleek Look, Powerful Engine

Acura Strengthens Luxury Sedan Lineup with the 2017 Acura TLX

2017-04-28T12:27:16+00:00April 28th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles|

Acura reestablishes its position as a competitor in the luxury sedan class with the new smooth and powerful Acura TLX.

In recent years, Acura’s sedan models have often been overshadowed by the brand’s more popular line of SUVs and the NSX supercar that has been blowing away car enthusiasts. However, in 2015 Acura released a new model of sedan, the TLX. The TLX is a mid-size luxury sedan that has proven to Acura’s closest competitors in this class—Audi and Infiniti— that Acura has the ingenuity to be to a contender. The 2017 Acura TLX has established itself as a daily commuter with remarkable engine-strength and smooth shifting, making it sort of a “diet” sports sedan. The Acura TLX is a great family sedan offering safety for the children and style for the driver. Overall, the TLX is the kind of addition to Acura’s sedan lineup that demonstrates the brand’s impressive diversity in engineering talent.

Bringing Style, Strength, and Safety

Acura has a reputation for equipping their vehicles with the latest high-tech systems, and the TLX is no exception. As a family style mid-size sedan, the Acura TLX is loaded with the brand’s newest active-safety features, such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and more.

Acura designers did a great job on the interior of the TLX by making a fairly small sedan feel quite spacious. The interior is also what gives this vehicle such a luxurious feel. The sport seats are crafted from Italian Milano leather and finished for a polished look and long-lasting durability. With a stiff body and Active Sound Control, the TLX provides a nearly silent ride geared toward passenger comfort. In addition, Acura managed to sneak an impressive amount of cabin storage into the TLX without sacrificing comfort.

Though this vehicle is built for safety and comfort, it shows up as a winner in the performance category as well. The 2.4L engine puts out 206 horsepower paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission with torque converter. This results in a smooth and responsive ride that garners a combined fuel-efficiency rating of 28 mpg.

One of the things that makes the Acura TLX something for competitors to fear is the mid-size sedan’s modest price. At Acura Santa Barbara, our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff is eager to walk you through the purchasing process and help you get into the new TLX, or any one of our extensive selection of Acura vehicles, as effortlessly as possible.

2017 Acura MDX is Revealed with a Front End Make-Over

2017-04-17T12:16:23+00:00April 17th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles|

After the previous model’s grille received some defamation for sporting what people called a “beak”, the 2017 model is redesigned for a more stylish appeal.

The Acura MDX has been a fan favorite of Acura customers for a while now. This can be attributed to its similarity in quality to the more prestigious luxury brand cross-overs, while boasting a much more affordable price. However, the last model of the Acura MDX was off-putting to many Acura drivers because of the addition of a shield-shaped front end grille that some say resembled a beak. Acura took note of this and sent its engineers to work reconfiguring the 2017 model. The result is a much more stylish “diamond-pentagon” grille that demonstrates the perfect balance of character and luxury that this car delivers. In addition to new style, the 2017 Acura MDX brings a lot to the table.

The Most Entertaining Cross-Over

Fitting three-rows into a cross-over without sacrificing style, comfort, or efficiency is not easy to, but Acura managed to pull it off. For a vehicle that provides such spatial capabilities, the 2017 Acura MDX provides a surprisingly athletic ride. The torque-vectoring rear differential distributes torque to the outside-rear wheel, effectively suppressing understeer and impressively accelerating the vehicle with little to no opposition. Including an accurate steering rack and well-adjusted suspension, the MDX offers a strong and steady ride with nimble responses.

Another factor that Acura engineers deserve a round of applause for is their ability to cut weight. The 2017 MDX weighs in at a shocking 4,222 pounds making it several hundred pounds lighter than its closest three-row competitor, the Infiniti QX60. The light-weight approach to the MDX also deserves to be credited for the vehicle’s energetic performance. With a 290-hp engine, the MDX beats the QX60’s 295-hp engine by more than a second in zero-to-60 mph acceleration. In addition, the 2017 MDX is sporting the new nine-speed automatic transmission to make for smoother acceleration and better fuel economy.

The 2017 Acura MDX is a perfect car for drivers who might be carrying several passengers, but still want a luxury ride and stylish appearance. Our team of experts at Acura Santa Barbara are happy to answer any questions you might have about the new MDX and other Acura models in our extensive collection. So be sure to come in and visit us or peruse our catalog on our website to find the perfect luxury vehicle for you.
