If you haven’t checked out the 2015 Acura TLX yet, it’s about time you had. As Duluth’s premier sport sedan, the 2015 Acura TLX provides drivers more power and drivetrain choices than ever before, including Acura’s next-generation precision handling technology: Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. Why choose Acura’s newest all-wheel drive system over standard front-wheel drive? The enhanced Super Handling All-Wheel Drive provides precise control, making it the ultimate sport handling choice for your 2015 TLX. Read on to learn more.

With Acura’s acclaimed Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), the 2015 TLX SH-AWD is paired exclusively with the V6 engine. Designed to provide the advantages of conventional all-wheel drive’s all-weather protection while boosting high-performance dry-road handling, the 2015 Acura TLX SH-AWD is the perfect sport sedan for every lifestyle.

Many conventional front or rear drive systems link inside and outside drive wheels, causing the vehicle to resist turning and promote understeer. Similarly, conventional AWD systems can create resistance to turning. Acura’s new hydraulically-controlled SH-AWD provides a more responsive, predictable handling performance while delivering outstanding all-weather traction and control.

What the 2015 TLX with SH-AWD Does What You Get 
  • Continuously analyses conditions — such as wheel speed, steering angle, weight distribution, available traction, and driver input — to determine optimal level of power distribution between the front and rear axles as well as between the rear wheels individually.
  • Seamless power and liberating agility.
  • When straight-line cruising, front wheels get up to 90% of the power.
  • Greatly improved efficiency.
  • During hard acceleration, 45% of engine power is directed to the rear wheels.
  • Full advantage of additional, available traction.
  • 70% of effective torque can be transferred to the rear wheels to help you accelerate hard around a curve. What’s more, it can go exclusively to the outside wheel, allocating power where weight has shifted.
  • Outstanding cornering ability in any condition.
  • With torque vectoring, the outside rear wheel can revolve up to 2.7% faster than the over wheels.
  • Reduces understeer and increases stability.

In short, the 2015 Acura TLX is a sport sedan that boasts enhanced confidence with superior all-weather control. Duluth drivers will benefit from increased responsiveness, agility, and stability. Plus, accurate steering delivers a high-performance cornering experience unmatched by front-drive, rear-drive, and conventional all-wheel-drive systems.
