2015 Acura TLX Spy Shots from China

2015 Acura TLX Spy Shots

A Chinese website has posted photos of a partially camouflaged China-spec 2015 Acura TLX. These new TLX images don’t reveal much more than previous spy shots, but they do offer more contrast and crisper lines than the last batch which were rather unflattering due to poor light. The lone interior shot shows us an electric parking brake and wood trim.

The North American TLX is set to debut on April 16th at the New York International Auto Show.

2015 Acura TLX Spy Shots

A new batch of 2015 Acura TLX spy shots have emerged today from KGP Photography:

“We caught a couple of undisguised, fresh-from-the-factory 2015 Acura TLX test cars, giving us the first look at at the truly production-spec replacement for the TL and TSX.

The TLX Concept that debuted at the recent North American International Auto Show in Detroit wasn’t exactly a complete look at a showroom-ready TLX. The black and white test cars caught on their post-build shakedown runs reveal toned-down front- and rear-fascias. The concept showcased a deeper front air-dam and more aggressive rear bumper, with flared sculpting and bold chrome accents. Those aggressive details are not found on the final production models, making for a more tame TLX that will enter Acura’s lineup after its New York Auto Show debut.” KGP Photography

UPDATE: Sources at TOV now say that this is not a North American model.

2015 Acura TLX Spy Shots

Recently posted on AcuraZine were these photos of a camo-tattered 2015 Acura TLX. Originating from a Chinese website this TLX is likely a China spec model, but usually there are minimal exterior differences from North American models. It looks like the “gap” in the lower front bumper has been closed, reminding me a bit of the third generation TL. We also get a first peek inside the TLX, and it appears to have the dual screen centre console set up found in the RLX and MDX.

Motor Trend: 2015 Acura TLX Caught Testing

A Motor Trend Editor has caught what appears to be a lightly camouflaged production 2015 Acura TLX. The three photos posted today reveal a slightly toned down version of the TLX Prototype, with less chrome and a few simplified features. Gone are the funky side mirrors which we knew wouldn’t make it, and to the dismay of many, no sign of exhaust tips.

2015 Acura TLX Prototype

There’s been some debate about this vehicle’s true identity, but the general consensus is that it is indeed an Acura TLX prototype. A new batch of photos have just been released from KGP Photography along with some of their predictions on the upcoming model:

“A prototype for the 2014  Acura TLX has headed for the mountains, and we have a slew of shots of it undergoing elevation testing.

The new TLX has been downsized a bit compared to outgoing TL (which it replaces), in order to leave a little more space between it, and the new range-topping RLX. The TLX springs from the mechanicals of the updated Honda Accord, and is expected to be powered by Honda’s new Earth Dreams SOHC 3.5-liter 24-valve V6, with direct injection and mated to either a six-speed automatic. A 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is also to be a possibility.

The TLX is also expected to share the four-cylinder hybrid drivetrain from the Honda Accord, representing a new model compared to the existing TL lineup.

We expect to see thinly-veiled “concepts” of the TLX to begin popping up on the auto show circuit by year’s-end.”

Spied: 2015 Acura TLX?

Posted by   on June 25th, 2013 2 comments

2015 Acura TLX?

A pair of mystery Acura sedans were spied in the California desert this past weekend, many speculate the two vehicles are test mules of the rumored TLX model that will succeed the outgoing TSX and TL models. Although under heavy padded camo, we can make out the signature Acura grille similar to the ILX/RLX, and a set of Jewel Eye headlights. Overall dimensions resemble the TL more than the TSX, possibly a bit shorter in length with less overhang up front.

Its large size have led others to suggest that it is actually a Sport Hybrid SH-AWD RLX in testing.

Check out the full set of spy shots over at the Temple of VTEC - vtec.net.
