Don’t be surprised if you get a sense of déjà vu all over again – as Yogi Berra liked to say – when you get to the New York Auto Show next month.
Yes, you’ve seen that Acura TLX before. Well, almost but not quite. Honda’s upscale marque gave us a look at a “prototype” during the Detroit Auto Show a couple months back. That’s a common practice for Honda which has been very effective at double-dipping into the 24-hour news cycle.
Expect to see a few minor tweaks as we go from prototype to production – such as the row of LED lights fused to the base of each sideview mirror — but the basic shape is going to be largely the same as what was revealed in the Motor City. “The TLX will serve as the backbone of the Acura sedan line-up,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura’s new brand boss, so the maker is intent on getting it right with what will soon become the middle model in its three sedan line-up.
