High-Powered Acura TLX Performance Features

Precision All-Wheel Steering (P-AWS)

P-AWS allows the rear wheels to move 1.8 degrees, coordinating with the front wheels. This Acura-specific feature improves control around Aurora streets or down I-25.

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD)

Available with the V6 TLX, SH-AWD improves handling and control on wet or dry roads. If you commute during Denver snowstorms, it’s essential.

8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission

A dual-clutch transmission is included standard with the 4-cylinder TLX model, and it promises fast shifting and enhanced fuel economy numbers.

Paddle Shifters

All TLX models include sequential SportShift steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for a manual shifting experience with the convenience of an automatic transmission.
