Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

The 2016 Acura TLX

This is certainly the smart choice for a luxury sedan. A sensible price tag and low depreciation are factors in the equation, as consumers have been realizing. Fuel economy is wonderful with the TLX, at 6.6 litres/100 km highway, greatly adding to its value. Add to that a ton of standard high-tech equipment, and you've got yourself a real winner.

You've got the choice between two engines, both offering excellent efficiency thanks in no small part to brand-new eight- and nine-speed automatic transmissions. The TLX is an absolute delight to drive, nimble throughout turns and with shift paddles for direct control over the transmissions.

A roomy, impressively quiet cabin makes for a pleasurable commute in the city, complementing the ambience. This is only the second year for the Acura TLX, but it's already making its niche in the market.
