Santa Barbara Auto Group highlights the latest performance updates now available on the updated 2016 Acura TLX.
Each year, Acura steps up to implement the most innovative design, technology, and performance updates available in each of its newest models. This year is no exception. In fact, there are so many amazing performance updates for the 2016 Acura TLX that we can hardly settle on just one or two favorites. So, here is our list of the top four performance updates for the latest Acura TLX:
- Integrated Dynamics System (IDS): With the 2016 Acura TLX, drivers can select different driving modes to optimize efficiency and performance. Three different settings are available including ECO (to maximize efficiency), NORMAL (an optimized blend of performance and efficiency), and SPORT (to maximize performance and control) and SPORT+ (featuring tightened and responsive control). Whether you are navigating the morning commute or venturing out on your favorite coastal drive, the Integrated Dynamics System allows drivers to get the most out of each drive.
- Exceptional Handling: The 2016 Acura TLX features available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ to give drivers more control than ever before. Controlled torque provides individual wheels with the precise amount of power necessary to deliver optimal performance.
- 8-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission: The 2016 Acura TLX brings more power and control to drivers thanks to the high-performance 8-speed dual clutch transmission with torque converter. Paired with the 206hp, 2.4L engine, the dual clutch transmission delivers smooth power and exceptional acceleration.
- Efficient Dynamics: Drivers who don’t want to compromise efficiency for power will be impressed with the performance of the 3.5L V-6 with 9-Speed Automatic transmission. This model provides 290hp while maximizing efficiency with the Variable Cylinder Management™ system across nine different gears.
In addition to these exceptional performance features, the 2016 Acura TLX was recently awarded as an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. In addition to exceptional body design and engineering, the TLX offers an array of safety technology including AcurWatch™, Vehicle Stability Assist, Advanced Compatibility Engineering™, and Collision Mitigation Braking. In this way, drivers can have peace of mind that their safety is the number one priority as they enjoy the class-leading performance of the Acura TLX.
When it comes to choosing favorite performance features, drivers do not have to take our word for it. We encourage Santa Barbara drivers to visit the Acura Santa Barbara showroom to test drive a 2016 TLX for themselves. Only be getting behind the wheel can one accurately experience each dynamic performance feature and determine which model is their favorite. We offer an array of available engines, colors, and performance packages so you can find the vehicle that is best for your lifestyle and driving preferences. Come in early to take advantage of year end pricing specials and the best inventory selection.
