Acura has taken the wraps off the 2015 TLX.

Previewed by the TLX concept, the production model was designed to "deliver a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan athleticism and premium luxury refinement."

While that remains to be seen, the car is more conservative than the concept and adopts an angular grille that is flanked by Jewel Eye LED headlights. Moving further back, there's swoopy bodywork and a dynamic greenhouse.

The styling won't get your heart racing but the cabin features high quality materials and a pleasing design. The company didn't go into specifics but notable highlights include wood grain trim, metallic accents and a 7-inch Demand Multi-Use Display. The model also has a 60/40 split folding rear seat and Siri Eyes Free technology. Options include heated and ventilated front seats, GPS navigation and a ten-speaker premium audio system.

On the safety front, the car can be equipped with a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and a Blind Spot Indicator.

Under the hood, two engines are available. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine produces 206 bhp (153 kW) and 182 lb-ft (246 Nm) of torque, while the 3.5-liter V6 develops 290 bhp (216 kW) and 267 lb-ft (361 Nm) of torque. The four-cylinder is paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the V6 is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission which can be backed up by an optional Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive system.
