The "flagship" looks just like a TLX that evolved a bit, but maybe that was the goal.

Sedan is intriguing, wish they could get the front wheels pushed forward more. To me the MDX is rather blah for a FMC. All this time and that is all they have done, give me more styling.

I think that sedan could be the new TLX. If so, I’m sold barring drivetrain disaster.

Acura's response:

As we announced, the True Touchpad Interface that debuted on the RDX will expand across the Acura line-up. These conceptual renderings were embedded deep in the RDXs user interface software for placement only. While the renderings are conceptual and based on our Precision Concept design language, we are pleased with the anticipation and positive reaction, and are excited to share details of future Acura products at the appropriate time."

Not all that impressed with the new touchpad interface with what I know and have seen thus far (plus still no Android Auto with it and this is a deal breaker for me) so unfortunately my excitement is at a minimum for the time being.

Don't want an Infiniti looking TLX.

You'd hope it evolves. That would be the goal of any new generation.

In short, you got us, but thanks for the positive vibes.

Very nice! I really like the new sedan look - glad they didn't go the route of the new Accord although some of the lines look familiar.

The TLX section will certainly be increasing in traffic over the coming months as we enter into full blown speculation mode.

The sedan looks very similar to the Q50.

Then again many cars are starting to look the same now...

From the view in the first post the cars front reminds me of the newer Audi.

The sedan looks like an evolution of the Precision concept from every angle, so likely not the new TLX

The side view is very Audi A7 ish, which unfortunately makes the design not feel as "new"

That TLX looks exactly like the current Gen Accord. Kinda looks like a Mazda 6 too.

Agreed!

Acura tried the revolutionary approach going from the 3rd to the 4th generation. Once bitten, twice shy.

I thought the TLX is an evolution of the 4G TL?

Yes, which means it's not revolutionary.
