Acura TLX

The longer, lower, and wider Acura TLX is an ideal choice for those who want a luxury sport sedan with traditional Acura dependability. The TLX offers an exhilarating driving experience thanks to its 272 horsepower 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Turn up the heat even more with the TLX Type S, which is powered by a 355 horsepower 3.0 liter V6. By default, the TLX is delivered with front-wheel drive, but the excellent Acura SH-AWD system is available as an option, offering superior handling and grip. Inside, you’ll find a high-quality, performance-oriented interior, with high-quality materials such as open-pore wood and aluminum trim. In terms of interior tech, a large, 10.5-inch heads-up display is available, as well as customizable ambient lighting. The TLX features plenty of safety technology onboard, too. Standard AcuraWatch features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist. Despite its high-tech features, the TLX still offers a traditional sport sedan experience in the best way possible. Sculpted analog gauges give the cockpit a performance-oriented feel, while bolstered sport seats offer both comfort and increased support during high-speed maneuvers.

Naturally, all-wheel drive is available to tame the prodigious power if you so choose. For those in colder climates, the all-wheel drive Ghibli S Q4 pairs well with the optional Climate Package, which includes such niceties as heated windshield washer nozzles and a heated rear seat. A heated steering wheel is also available. While this Maserati may be fast, it’s certainly not high-strung. You’ll find that the interior is a comfortable place to spend time, with a wide selection of available colors, trims, and materials to customize your driving experience. If the intoxicatingly exotic sounds of that Ferrari V6 aren’t enough, you can choose between two different premium audio systems from Harman Kardon and Bowers & Wilkins to enjoy on the standard 10.1 inch touchscreen infotainment display. There’s plenty more technology on board to shape your ideal driving experience, too, from a voice-activated virtual assistant to a wireless charging pad and beyond.

However, passengers will find more interior space for additional comfort, as well as an even wider selection of sumptuous, luxurious interior options. There are also additional options available, such as reclining rear seats and three-zone climate control. For the driver, several safety technology features are standard on the Maserati Quattroporte, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and lane departure warning with lane keeping assist.

The extensive engine lineup of the Panamera includes a standard 2.9-liter turbo V6 producing 325 horsepower up to a muscular 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that cranks out an astounding 620 horsepower in the Panamera Turbo S.

Supportive leather-trimmed seating gives you an ideal blend of comfort and body-hugging contours, and a redesigned steering wheel offers improved ergonomics and superior control. Porsche Communication Management includes a 12.3-inch high-resolution touchscreen display and is your central control for audio, navigation, and communication. Now, thanks to a retuned suspension and standard lane-keeping assist and traffic-sign recognition, the Panamera is even better than ever. Just a decade or so ago, it was nearly impossible to imagine a Porsche sedan. Now, we can’t imagine the Porsche lineup without it.
