Honda’s celebrating the birth of an athelete: the 2015 Acura TLX luxury sedan, unveiled today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI. In introducing the TLX Mike Accavitti, Senior Vice President of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., said the vehicle was designed to embody the characteristics of a “Red Carpet Athelete”. He explained: “The styling concept for this beautiful, racy TLX Prototype matches the performance makeup of the production model … that is to say, incredibly nimble … dynamic … and firmly planted. Building from a solid, wheels-out performance-handling stance … the TLX Prototype has a taut, aero-tuned form … marked by precise lines that flow from a shortened rear overhang … and around the vehicle … where they culminate in the signature Acura Jewel Eye LED headlights.
Yet, even with this very low and wide profile, we leveraged our packaging expertise targeting the largest interior volume of any car in the segment … with great site lines … ample cargo capacity … and comfortable seating for five adults.”
There was no interior reveal at this morning’s debut but Accavitti promises a luxurious, quiet, spacious ride in a space he describes as “vault-like”.
