The Acura TLX is up for 2015 North American Car of the Year

While the Acura TLX has only been up for sale in the last few weeks, it is already being considered for some major awards. The biggest of them being the recently announced finalists for North American "Car of the Year". While we will still have to wait a few months to see the final results, being named a top choice this early out the gate means that both critics and consumers are head over heels for the new TLX.




What makes the TLX such an excellent car? Well, many will first point out the high-end features and performance. While some cars are good at a single aspect of the daily commute, the TLX aces on the ride, acceleration and handling. It also doubles up as a great family car if you are looking for an upscale sedan that is thoroughly updated in terms of safety and environmental engineering. While we could talk at length about the newest addition to the Acura lineup, the proof comes when you can try out the car. We know from the first turn that you will fall in love with the TLX.





The TLX has a satisfying and overdue return


While Acura fans have always had the pleasure of having multiple options in the sedan market, the fierce competitiveness of the segment means constant change. With each step forward, premium sedans have become more technologically sound, safer to drive, and have greater performance. This is why Acura fans should be extremely excited to try out the new 2015 TLX.





While this move has caused future generations of the TL and TSX to be put on hold, Acura has crafted a better car using the finest attributes of both. It is quick and nimble around corners, and yet has enough horsepower to turn each trip to work into a thrill ride. Packed inside the TLX is top shelf luxury finishes, and standard equipment that includes heated front seats, full-LED headlamps and taillights, paddle shifters, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a sunroof. What makes this car even more appealing is when you consider its high level of sport and luxury features. A similar BMW will run you upwards of $60K. All of these features come together to make this TLX the best bet for overall value compared to your other options.

2 quick tips to help keep your car clean!


Between kids, pets, friends, and yourself, the condition of your car's interior is always in peril. So, how do you keep it clean when you've got kids spitting up and spilling, pets drooling and tracking in dirt and people eating four-course meals in your car? Here are a few tips that will keep your Acuraas clean as possible.


The first, and possibly the easiest step, is to always have a trash bag on hand in the car. You can keep it in the trunk, or someplace convenient in the back seat. It is great for keeping fast-food bags, cups, trash, even occasional wet clothes or muddy shoes from doing harm to the leather seats or floor mats. It also helps when it comes to the convenience of having a clean car. One bag to dispose of and you're done!




Next, be sure to schedule a regular time to clean your car. Even if you can't quite commit to cleaning once a week, even a few times a month can really make a difference when it comes to the appearance of your car. Wiping down the dash and steering wheels, a quick vacuum, and a little elbow grease can fights stains, discoloration, and improve the eventual resale value of your car!





Why the Acura MDX is a truly smart buy

When looking for a luxury SUV, buyers should expect more from their manufacturer. Simply slapping a luxury price tag on a car doesn't make your car instantaneously better, or even a smarter purchase. Instead, Acura believes that luxury buyers deserve more. That is why the MDX should be considered the best value in the luxury SUV market.




The interior of the MDX allows drivers and passengers alike the chance to enjoy the quality materials, without sacrificing the functionality of the car. Autoblog.comwas quoted as saying "It's a nice place to spend time, featuring high-quality Milano leather on the seats and steering wheel, soft-touch plastics on the dash and nicely arranged strips of wood trim." Overall, the MDX offers a well thought-out interior. The controls are mostly concentrated around the bottom of the two displays, and are easy to reach. Visibility is excellent, as are this SUV's supportive, comfortable leather seats. The addition of both heating and cooling functions, as well as 10-way power adjustability, makes the MDX a great place to sit for extended periods.




At the end of the day, the Acura MDX should be on the shopping list of every single consumer in the midsize luxury SUV segment. It offers an excellent value in a market segment that isn't known for being affordable, and provides value where others provide consistent upcharges.

Acura MDX and Acura RDX Awards

We want to take a moment to brag about some of our family members: The Acura MDX and the Acura RDX.

Anyone who has driven an MDX and an RDX already knows the meaning of true joy, but let us tell you something you may not know: Our pride at the MDX and RDX's achievements isn't just all in our heads. They've got the awards to prove it.

MDX

AutoGuide.com Utility Vehicle of Year Award

This one is pretty self explanatory (and not surprising for Acura MDX owners).

"It's never an easy decision to give an award to a luxury car because they obviously come with top quality finishings and plenty of high-tech features, but what impressed us about the MDX is just what you get for your money," said AutoGuide Editorial Director Colum Wood.

He's of course referencing the class-leading fuel economy, the uncompromising 290 hp engine, and the comfort and quietness all 7 passengers will enjoy during your car rides.

The Best Value Award from Kiplinger's Personal Finance

You won't find a better value in the Large Crossover category. The judges mentioned that the fuel efficiency and safety standards, as well as the world-class luxury feel, are what sealed the deal for this award.

RDX

2013 Polk Automotive Loyalty Award

The Acura RDX is such a great car, and people love the experience of driving it so much, that it creates loyal Acura brand advocates.

This means that because of their experience with the Acura RDX, people went back and bought another Acura that was the same make, model, or manufacturer. And this isn't a based on a judge's opinion, it's based on actual purchase and leasing data.

U.S. News and World Report 2014 Best Cars for the Money Award

Each car won a U.S. News and world Report 2014 Best Cars for the Money Award, the MDX taking the "Best Luxury 3-Row Midsize SUV For The Money" Award, and the RDX taking the "Best Luxury Compact SUV For The Money" Award.

"The MDX and RDX continue to win accolades for their outstanding combination of exhilarating, performance, great fuel efficiency, and outstanding value on a luxury scale," said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura Sales. "With the five-passenger RDX and new seven-passenger MDX, Acura has unquestionably two of the most competitive luxury SUVs in the market."

And we tend to agree.
