Mid-size entry-level luxury model to bow at North American International Auto Show

Certain models within the Acura stables haven’t necessarily been setting the sales charts alight since their introduction. The new ILX, which replaced the CSX, sits behind the Mercedes-Benz B-Class in Canadian sales, and only 16 Acura RLX units found homes here last month.

With that in mind, Acura is planning to replace two current models – the TSX and TL – with a brand new mid-size offering dubbed TLX, set for introduction next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The new model will sit between Acura’s two newest aforementioned sedans – ILX and RLX – and be powered by the choice of two engines (probably one four-cylinder, the other V6) with front- and all-wheel drive. It’ll be produced in Marysville, Ohio.

When the TLX starts appearing in dealer lots in mid-2014, the TSX will be officially discontinued.
