Debuting at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, the 2015 Acura TLX Prototype was certainly an eye turner sporting a “Red Carpet Athlete” design. The TLX is a hybrid of the sporty TL and the mid-size sedan TSX. The new Acura TLX also includes many of the popular features that set the Acura RL apart from the competition including the signature Jewel Eye LED headlights and a whopping set of 20-inch alloy wheels.
The 2015 TLX Prototype is a technological overhaul for Acura. Dropping both the TL and TSX from their current line, the TLX gives Acura a new slate to implement innovative technologies into their new car. A few features that stand out include the Integrated Dynamic System (IDS) and the car’s four distinct driving modes: Economy, Normal, Sport, and Sport+. Depending on the mode selected, the TLX’s Integrated Dynamic System adjusts the steering, throttle response, transmission, and even the noise level in the cabin.
Why I love the TLX Prototype: from first look, Acura’s bold colored “Red Carpet Athlete” design makes it stand out. Secondly, the four driving modes allow the car to be an everyday driver and a sports car all-in-one. Most notably is the available 3.5-liter V6 and 9-speed transmission. Finally, the TLX’s Precision All Wheel Steer (P-AWS), which compliments the power of the car and allows it to easily hug turns at fast speeds.
Sportier than the previous TL and the TSX models, the TLX is a technologically pleasing car that will fit perfectly into Acura’s new line up. The 2015 Acura TLX is scheduled to release in mid-2014 so be on the lookout at MileOne.com for this groundbreaking car.
Although the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class SUV has always been highly recommended, the 2013 changes have put it over the top as a must buy luxury SUV. This sought after luxury crossover guarantees rock-solid construction, a sophisticated ride and ample safety features. The GLK offers a class and comfortable ride with various technology features including a dual-screen rear seat entertainment system, satellite radio, the iPod/USB audio interface. Not to mention the power behind this small SUV, its V6 engine pushing output to 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. This V6 engine is putting the GLK as one of the quickest compact luxury crossover SUVs out there. Improvements to the engine efficiencies and one of the best automatic stop-start systems on the market boost the GLK350’s fuel economy.
The safety features on the GLK are most certainly a selling point. If you want your family safe on the crazy roads out there, the GLK is certainly something you’ll want to look into. Mercedes has installed a gentle buzz in the steering wheel from a lane-departure warning system letting you know if you veer too close to the line. Benz’s Attention Assist stands by in case you fall asleep or simply stop paying attention. Not only that, but new-for-2013 is an emergency communications system that provides automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance and a system that alerts the owner when a pre-selected speed or boundary is exceeded by another driver (say, a teen or valet). Blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning systems are also available options.
I could continue to list the vast technology features of the vehicle, or the signature materials found in the Mercedes-Benz family, but instead you should stop by and check them out first hand to fully amerce yourself. Find the nearest Benz dealer to you by heading over to http://mileone.com.
The 2013 Hyundai Tucson has played a major roll in the building and reconstruction of Hyundai’s new and improved reputation. This vehicle puts more emphasis on the “Sport” part of SUV than “utility” with proportional weight and driving agility. The Tucson’s 4 cylinder engine produces 176hp and receives an EPA estimated 29 mpg highway.
Inside the vehicle, a panoramic sunroof extending from the front seats to the backlights creates a comfortable and spacious interior. All seats are made from premium leather with the front two being heated and dynamically adjustable. The Tucson designers also thoughtfully configured the rear seats to fold down in a way to provide extra storage space when needed.
When it comes to the driver’s seat, the easily accessible controls are well lit and set on an angle to better the overall driving experience. The intelligent multifunction trip computer also keeps you informed on the mpg’s you’re receiving, average speed, and miles to empty. Plus, you can’t forget about the hands free Bluetooth technology, rearview backup camera, and NavTraffic with real time road conditions.
The safety features are top of the line as well. HillStart Assist Control, Downhill Brake Control, and electronic stability control make this vehicle safe in those tricky situations. In fact, the Tucson won the 2012 IIHS Top Safety Pick.
