The four-door 2017 Acura TLX midsize sedan seats five passengers and is available in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. Both the FWD and AWD models earned the perfect 5-Star Overall Rating. The midsize sedan also earned the perfect five-star rating in front, side and rollover crash tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not yet rated it, but as it is a carryover model, the 2017 Acura TLX is expected to earn the same top scores as it did for the 2016 model year.

Standard safety features across the lineup include four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, stability and traction control, a multiview rear camera, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag. Available advanced safety equipment include electronic pre-tensioning front seat belts, front and rear parking sensors, a blind spot monitoring and warning system, lane departure warning and intervention, forward collision alert and a collision mitigation system with emergency automatic braking. In industry testing of the 2017 Acura TLX, it recorded a stopping distance from 60 mph to a complete stop in 120 feet.

The midsize luxury sedan also features a number of tech features that help the driver stay focused on the road while also staying connected, such as Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a rearview camera and more! Head on down to Acura of Peabody to check out a new 2017 Acura TLX model today!
